Yes, Leesburg, VA, is right in the middle of so many tourist attractions and must-see destinations on the East Coast. Our hometown is an hour outside of Washington, DC, and Shenandoah National Park. Sugarloaf Mountain, a family-friendly hiking spot, is about 20 minutes away. Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Richmond and NYC are all under 5 hours away.

Wine About It
Loudoun County boasts over 40 wineries that all make and serve Virginia wine. My favorite is Fabbioli Cellars. The winemaker has a background in French and California wines. The $15 tasting includes a delicious wine lineup and small bites to complement each sip. Also, there is a great family farm just around the corner.
Family-friendly Foodie Options
Leesburg is known for farm-to-table restaurants and unique foodie stops. The historic district has quite a few great options. Lightfoot and Shoes Cup & Cork offer mouth-watering menu selections at both indoor and outdoor dining tables. Shoes’ secret garden is a beautiful place to take the whole family for lawn games and yummy bites. Head out to the town of Lucketts for a casual meal at Roots 657.
Loudoun County has so many farms; the town celebrates with a Spring Farm Tour. My kiddos love to visit the local equine rescue down the road from our house. And, we all love Temple Hall Farm, a working farm with educational elements. You can’t help but raise horse-lovers growing up in this area.
Shop til You Drop
We call Lucketts, VA home, and so does the Old Lucketts Store, a hip antique shop with stunning wares. The garden area has excellent options too. The succulent workshop is a must-do for the whole family. Tell Anne; I sent you! Also, the Leesburg Premium Outlets are a great place to find bargains for everyone in your crew. They just added a few play areas for the little ones, too.
We love living here so much; I even had custom hometown tumblers made so we can take home with us wherever we go. I hope you’ll come to visit our town soon. We’d love to welcome you to Leesburg, VA.
