Picnicking at the Netherland Carillon

Escape to the romantic Dutch countryside complete with tulips, right here in Virginia! The Netherlands Carillon is a versatile spot for picnicking, family gatherings, photoshoots or all of the above, and a great way to experience the beauty of May sunshine and bloom here in Northern Virginia.

And with the selection of talented chefs, kitchens, eateries and restaurants around the Alexandria-Arlington-Fairfax County area, moms of every palate and taste will find themselves truly spoilt for options. Ambar Clarendon is a delicious and satisfying tour of the Balkans with a delicious all you can eat (!) selection of mezze, soups, fresh sandwiches, crepes, pastries, sweets, and baked goods.
