Ashburn is considered the very heart of Northern Virginia's affluent "hunt country." Here the tradition of fox hunting has endured since the colonial era. The community of about 45,000 lies 30 miles northwest of Washington, D.C., where a large percentage of residents work.
Visitors in Ashburn around Memorial Day can tour the very farms that gave this scenic region its nickname. The Virginia Hunt Country Stable Tour annually provides tourists with a look inside several of the farms, barns and estates of old. Each fall, Ashburn visitors have abundant opportunities to attend steeplechase horse races. One of the more famous events is the Virginia Fall Races weekend, which takes place at Glenwood Park in nearby Middleburg each October.
The Northern Virginia countryside is gently rolling and picturesque. An ideal way to explore the serene terrain is on two wheels. Conveniently, Ashburn is located along the Washington and Old Dominion Trail, and Get Out & Go Tours offers daily, weekly and monthly bike rentals. Explore all or part of the paved 45-mile trail.
The Ashburn Ice House is an excellent way to cool off on a hot summer day while getting fun exercise on ice. The indoor rink offers skating and hockey lessons and skills classes.
