History of Leesburg, VA
Leesburg has a rich history that spans three centuries. In 1757, Leesburg was chosen as the location for the new Loudoun County Courthouse, and in 1813 the Town of Leesburg was officially established. Leesburg is located just a few miles from the Potomac River, which was the dividing line in the Civil War from the United States and the Confederates States of America. As a result, there were numerous battles fought here including the Battle of Balls Bluff. After the war ended, Leesburg had to recover from the scorched earth tactics that were commonly used. Leesburg’s location just outside of DC helped to speed their recovery, and the railroad allowed farmers to get their crops to larger cities. In the 20th century, Leesburg was the home of George C. Marshall, the man behind the Marshall Plan that helped to rebuild countries after WWII. Over the years, Leesburg has tried to retain its identity as a small, historic town although the rapid growth of Northern Virginia and Loudoun County have affected Leesburg to some extent.

Aiyara Thai Restaurant
Best Thai food in Leesburg. From the super spicy "Chicken Madness" to simple Pad Thai or Drunken Noodle, you will not be disappointed. Check out the "all you can eat" lunch buffet on Tuesdays, to sample various menu items. Great price and you won't leave hungry.
Fabbioli Winery has a great tasting room and a great wine selection. The raspberry merlot is amazing! During the summer months you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery, during the winter, sit by the fire. One of my favorite wineries in the area!
Jasmine Means Chinese
A great friend of ours told us about Jasmine's a few months after we moved to Leesburg. On the ground floor of Tuscarora Mill in downtown, it's our favorite place to have lunch. The sushi is outstanding and I haven't found any place with better General Tso's chicken.
Shoes Cup & Cork
I’m completely obsessed this with this little spot in downtown Leesburg, it’s my favorite place to be when the weather is nice! This quirky little building used to be an old shoe repair store that has been turned into a whole new dining experience. The front of the store is a café where you can get all sorts of wonderful coffee and the upstairs is the dining area. However, the BEST spot in the house is the “Secret Garden”. Hidden away in the back of the building, is literally a beautiful garden with hanging lights, bocce court and plenty of places to hang out, have a drink, order food and just relaxed. While you are there, be sure to order the red sangria and try the Mac & Cheese!
