This month, our Weekend Guide is giving you a behind-the-scenes tour of one of our top Loudoun towns – Leesburg. Leesburg has the best of both worlds, with extensive historic and modern areas. With so much to do, see, and enjoy, this guide is really only a snapshot of what the Town of Leesburg has to offer.
Stroll around historic downtown Leesburg on the First Friday of each month during the summer to enjoy numerous live music performances throughout the town, art exhibits, wine tastings, lectures, signings, and so much more!

The Leesburg Animal Park has many animal residents that you and your kids can meet, pet and feed. Enter the “Contact Area” to roam around with farm animals such as goats, sheep and llamas. Jump onto a Wagon Ride, take a Pony Ride or join a Live Animal Show! You’ll get an up-close animal experience that you just can’t get at a larger zoo.

South Street Under has been part of the Market Station family for over a decade. What began as a place to bake fresh breads and pastries for the Tuscarora Mill Restaurant has evolved into Old Town Leesburg’s favorite gathering place, serving breakfast, lunch, coffee, and pastries seven days a week.
