As a northern Virginia suburb in the DC metropolitan area, there is plenty of opportunity and a variety of things to do for people of all ages! Want to take a day to learn more about our country's history, its a short 45 minute drive to DC. Want to explore the historic downtown or pay a visit to a vineyard? We have that too. There are a many new strip malls and shopping centers with some of the newest hippest restaurants, bowling alleys, and movie theatre's! Leesburg gives you the best of both worlds.

Leesburg has a little of everything you need to make a small town big.
There is the Leesburg Outlet Mall! 40+ stores (probably), there are activities for the whole family or you and your hubby, also you will find all kinds of places to eat at and many stay open late. The Blue Ridge Mountains are a scenic drive away, and D.C. is no more than an hour away (unless its rush hour)! When you've been sitting in the office all day, there are many parks to set up a hammock and destress.
If you want to get involved with your local food bank or church ministry, there are many different opportunities for that too!
If I could change one thing about Leesburg, it's the rapid population rise from all that this place has got to share.
Leesburg is a safe, clean community! It has a beautiful and fun downtown life, great schools and plenty of job opportunities. It's the perfect town to raise a family in. The only improvement it could make it is to find somewhere that teenagers could hang out (especially on weekends) safely without getting in trouble for being there.
