Leesburg is located in Loudoun County, in the Virginia Piedmont
between the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the
Potomac River, 35 miles northwest of downtown Washington, D.C


 
 

       Leesburg was established in 1758, has a population of about 37,000 people, and is one of the fastest growing communities in the country (population doubled between 1990 and 2001).  Leesburg is 15 miles from Washington Dulles International Airport, and is also home to Leesburg Executive Airport (Godfrey Field), a commercial and general aviation facility. The Maryland Rail Commuter Train offers service to and from Washington, D.C., from Point of Rocks, Md., about 12 miles north of Leesburg. 

      The town is also accessible via the W&OD Trail, a hiking/biking trail that runs from Arlington, through Leesburg and on to Purcellville, Virginia, along the bed of the former Washington & Old Dominion Railroad, but also has connecting trails into Washington DC and Maryland. 
       Leesburg has good local transportation and an abundance of restaurant and shopping options, but only occupies about a 12 square mile area.

    

     The immediate surrounding area is rich with Civil War history, has many wineries, a booming equine community and more.  In addition, Washington DC is about a 40 minute drive or train ride away, so Leesburg is very ”family friendly” with lots of options beyond the Cirque.
