Ask me why my husband and I chose Leesburg as the place to raise our family, and why we never want to leave.


The Town of Leesburg is an ideal place to live, work, and play. The award winning Town of Leesburg Parks and Recreation Department maintains over 400 acres of parkland across 16 parks, including playgrounds, pools, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, multi-use trails, and even a skate park. The department offers over three thousand recreational programs annually. King Street, the North/South road bisecting downtown, is the parade route for several annual celebrations, including Halloween, July Fourth, and Christmas.

The Downtown Business Association promotes regular events, two of the more popular being Leesburg First Fridays and Acoustic on the Green. The businesses of Downtown Leesburg invite patrons to stroll in and out and enjoy special performances, exhibits, and other events on the first Friday evening of every month.  Acoustic on the Green is a free summer concert series held Saturday nights on the Town Green where picnics are encouraged and local musicians entertain.

Runners, walkers, cyclists, skaters, and even horseback riders will enjoy the section of the W&OD trail which crosses the town.  The Washington and Old Dominion trail is a 45-mile long, 100-foot wide multi-use rail-trail owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority. The park is open from dawn to dusk and is even used by some area bicycle commuters as a route across Loudoun County and beyond.

Two open-air Farmers’ Markets operate in Leesburg, one year round, and another seasonal market in the warmer months. Both are growers markets, meaning vendors are also growers/producers, and all must be from within a 125-mile radius of Loudoun County. These markets are an ideal place to buy locally grown foods and locally produced products, meet the farmers and small businesspeople, and mingle with the community.


Leesburg, VA Real Estate

Leesburg is a historic town in, and county seat of, Loudoun County, Virginia, United States of America. Leesburg is located 33 miles (53 km) west-northwest of Washington, D.C. along the base of the Catoctin Mountain and adjacent to the Potomac River.[3] Its population according the 2010 Census is 42,616. The town is also the northwestern terminus of the Dulles Greenway, a private toll road that connects to the Dulles Toll Road at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Leesburg, like the rest of Loudoun, has undergone considerable growth and development over the last 30 years, transforming from a small, rural, piedmont town to a suburban bedroom community for commuters to the national capital. Current growth in the town and its immediate area to the east (Lansdowne/Ashburn) concentrates along the Dulles Greenway and State Route 7, which roughly parallels the Potomac River between Winchester to the west and Alexandria to the east.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s Washington Air Route Traffic Control Center is located in Leesburg.
