About an hour west from Washington D.C. and east from Winchester, Va, Millbrook Quarry is an ideal site for weekend dives. There are multiple sunken attractions including a plane, several boats, and buses, to name a few. They are open Saturday and Sunday only. Water temps can get up to the mid 70's in the summer, but the deepest point is consistently in the 40-50 degree range year round. Thick wetsuits or dry suits are the norm. Visibility can range from 10-20 feet. Entry at the gate is $25, but can be purchased ahead of time at local dive shops for less. For more information see the dive site link listed below. From Washington D.C. and points east, take I-66 west. Get off on exit 40, Route 15 Haymarket/Leesburg. Turn Left onto Rt. 15. Turn right onto John Marshall Highway/Rt 55 at first traffic light.

Great place to grab a weekend dive or two if you live in the greater D.C. area. It can get fairly crowded, but never to the point of inconvenience, unless some silt gets kicked up. You can also camp there for $5. At the gate you must present your C-card and let them know who you are diving with if you are traveling alone. There is no solo diving allowed unless you have a solo certification and redundant air.
