What to do in Chantilly, VA

Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center
14390 Air and Space Museum Pkwy, Chantilly, VA 20151

The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center is one of my favorite places to go in Chantilly, VA and all of Fairfax County. It’s located next to Dulles Airport in Chantilly, VA so getting there is easy and they have their own parking lot. Because the museum is a Smithsonian it’s free (there is a charge for parking).

Many of airplanes and spacecraft in the Smithsonian’s collection are displayed here. Really – it’s a HUGE airplane hangar. They have the space shuttle Discovery on display as well as an Apollo era space capsule, Concord Jet, SR-71, and many other famous aircraft. One of the things I like the most is that the guides are amazing. Many of them are retired from the air force, NASA, or a related government agency. They love aviation. The tours are always the highlight of the trip for me.


Where to eat in Chantilly, VA

Charcoal Chicken – Pakistani and Indian Cuisine
13969 Metrotech Dr, Chantilly, VA 20151

Charcoal chicken is a great place to grab a dinner by yourself or with friends. The food at Charcoal Chicken is different than you can get at other Indian or Pakistani restaurants. I order the Chicken Karahi. The Chicken Karahi contains chunks of chicken in a rich and flavorful sauce. It’s served in a small metal bowl with a side of rice and bread. You can get the dish as SPICY or mild as you want. But be warned – this is an authentic restaurant and hot means HOT!

King Pollo
4080 Airline Pkwy, Chantilly, VA 20151

King Pollo serves Peruvian Style Chicken. King Pollo may not be fancy but the portions are HUGE and the food is great. There will probably be a soccer game playing on the TV and you are not going to find a romantic place to sit. The chicken is great though and very fresh. They have an eclectic mix of sides that include: white rice, fried rice, beans & rice, beans, green beans, steamed veggies, salad, potato salad, onion salad, yuca, steak fries, plantain, macaroni salad, and spaghetti. I have to say – I LOVE Peruvian chicken so much that this year we even found a Peruvian chicken restaurant to cook our Thanksgiving turkey.
