Exploring Leesburg, Virgina

If I did not live in Reston, Virginia, there is a pretty good chance I would live in Leesburg, Virginia.

For years, my children attended school in Leesburg, VA and I got a pretty good sense of the wonderful community of Leesburg. It has a great downtown area and some of the most beautiful old homes in the area (I have always wanted one of those great old homes!).

If you work in the District, living in Leesburg is not for the feint of heart. The commutes can be long, but there is bus service, the Dulles Greenway, and, if all goes according to plan, eventually a metro line. There is, however, plenty of job opportunity within Loudoun County and Fairfax County, one of Loudoun's neighboring counties.

But you don't have to live in Leesburg to enjoy all the great stores and restaurants.  I often meet friends in Leesburg for lunch or dinner. Some of our favorite spots are Lightfoot (located in an old bank), Tuscarora Mill and the place fondly referred to as 'Gas Station Thai,' Thai Pan Restuarant.

The Washington Post published a Leesburg Neighborhood Guide that will get you started on your explorations.

Don't forget to stop by the  Cooley Art Gallery (owned by Redskin Chris Cooley--we Washingtonians love our Redskins--especially when they own an Art Gallery). There are also fantastic antique stores and specialty boutiques that you can explore, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time.

Just 35 miles from Washington D.C., Leesburg, Virginia is a great destination for an afternoon--or a lifetime!
