Ashburn VA was voted the 2nd best place to live in 2018 and there is no wonder why. This amazing town nestled in Virginia is just a short half hour drive from Washington DC and offers a splendid variety of amenities for both visitors and residents.
When it comes to family fun Ashburn does not disappoint. This is a quiet town that is located relatively close to big travel destination entertainment options. Families residing here can take in all of the wonderful local breweries, restaurants, parks and nature trails and if they find themselves looking for a quick day trip, there are plenty of things like zoos and amusement parks to visit for a quick day trip and make it back in time for dinner at their favorite Ashburn establishment.
If you are looking for activities that are bit more natural and less theme park or zoo oriented then you don’t need to look any further. Ashburn Village is located near amazing hiking trails and state parks as well. You can ditch the short car ride to surrounding activities and explore the ones located directly in Ashburn.
Potomac Heritage Trail is a local trail that is ideal for hiking, running and biking. This trail features natural rock formations, flowing streams and green vegetation that will inspire you to snap some frame worthy pictures. After a peaceful afternoon on the trails you can up your date night activities by embarking on an outing at one of these local establishments:
- iFLY Indoor Skydiving
- Top Golf
- Escape Room Herndon
- Alamo Cinema Drafthouse
- Old Ox Brewery
All of the outside and nightlife activities might have you a bit tired. Don’t let those muscles become achy and stiff. After a day hiking and a night out on the town you can book an appointment at the local Amenity Day Spa for a deep tissue massage with some relaxing aromatherapy. If you have an entire day to spare you might as well make it a complete experience and experience a facial, manicure and pedicure as well. Reservations are required for spa services.
If a day at the spa is not in the card for you then you can investigate the impressive variety of shops at One Loudoun, The Ashburn Village Center or the Farm Village Center.
Ashburn VA is a must visit US destination. Guests will enjoy the closeness to big city attractions but the peacefulness that small towns have to offer. The hiking, dining, shopping and spa options will not leave you disappointed and you will find yourself returning time and time again for a relaxing vacation.
