Old World Charm

Leesburg is a small well-preserved town in Loudoun County about 50 miles from Washington, D.C. The day we picked to visit Leesburg was rainy, drizzly and windy yet it was amazing to see how busy it was there. I decided to take a few pictures with my digital camera and these are the few that turned out. I sure wish they were better quality.
We started at the Visitor Information Center which was clearly marked on signs coming into the town.
Here we picked up a map of Historic Downtown Leesburg.
Leesburg's downtown is situated on gentle rolling hills and truly displays itself as an old quaint city.
Here you will see many stone buildings and even some made of logs.

    Brings back nice memories of staying in Leesburg at the Laurel Brigades Inn, an Easter egg hunt in the garden there for the children, and a beautiful old quilt bought in a local antique shop as a wonderful souvenir. leyle

    I always thought I could live in Virginia. Or Northern part of North Carolina. Nice photos.

    What a delightful place Leesburg is. Your restaurant tips are really good. Despite the weather, your photos enticed me. Love the travelogues.

    Oatlands looks like a beautiful plantation and garden that I would like to visit. Were there Azaleas or is it too far north? In Georgia April is the time for Azaleas. The plantation tour sounds interesting.
