Shop in the Lap of Lu
McLean is the place to be for those that enjoy luxury high-end shopping. One of the town's biggest shopping hot spots is Tysons Galleria, which is a three-floor upscale mall in the heart of the city. Visitors will be able to pick from over 120 stores and services, which range from familiar department stores and restaurants to exclusive designer shops and boutiques. The city is peppered with a number of other singular stores and strip malls, each with their own unique flair. Langley Shopping Center offers a number of locally-owned and operated shops where you are guaranteed to discover one-of-a-kind finds.
Take in the Arts
McLean is a town that a fairly large percentage of up-and-coming artists call home, so it should come as no surprise that the city is full of classy galleries and timeless artwork. Gallery 65, located within the Langley Shopping Center, takes pride in representing both local and nationally-known contemporary artists. Visitors will enjoy abstract creations, impressionist landscapes, realistic portraits, and more. Art enthusiasts will have the opportunity to both view and purchase famous paintings and sculptures from the likes of Salvador Dali, Bacci, Goran Mustapic, and many more at Wentworth Gallery in the Tysons Galleria Mall.
The Great Outdoors
When you are looking for the perfect way to get in some time outdoors while enjoying the fresh air, take a timeout at Great Falls Park along the beautiful Potomac River. In addition to being a prime location for rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities, the park features a number of observation areas where you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of waterfalls that cascade over a 20-foot fall line. Other notable, yet smaller parks within city limits include Bull Neck Stream Valley, Pimmit Bend, Fort Marcy, and Powhatan Hills.
