Last weekend was just
the jumping-off point for what we're officially deeming the Best Summer Ever. Whether you spent the long weekend at the beach, jet-setted off to a whirlwind getaway, or kept it low-key here in town, hopefully you crossed a few things off the season's bucket list: steamed crabs, bocce ball, and starting your base tan, to name a few.
is this the Best Summer Ever, you ask? Well, for starters, we're here to guide you to some of our favorite locales, activities, and traditions
, which means you'll have no shortage of awesome things to do all season long. First on the list? An ultra-laid-back day trip to Leesburg, the Northern Virginia oasis for wine lovers, antiques hunters, and aficionados of all things equestrian
. After all, no summer to-do list is complete without a mini getaway. Click through for the lowdown on the town's best shops, wineries, and restaurants, and get ready for some close-to-home R&R.
