Favorite thing: Drive through some of the secluded residential areas. It might be hard to find a house to look at because there are so many trees! This picture might look like a remote country road, but it is actually in the town of Reston..
Fondest memory: Looking outside my bedroom window to see hundred year old trees looming upward at least a hundred feet was quite impressive! Where I live, everything had to be planted and watered to grow so compared to this part of the country, we are still nothing but a well cared for desert.
In Reston, there were so many trees that even on the sunniest days, the light in the room was dim. Great for deflecting the heat during those hot summers!

Go ice skating at Reston Town...
Favorite thing: Go ice skating at Reston Town Center in winter, or hear the concerts there on Saturday nights in Summer... Visit the Nature Center tucked away within Reston....ride through on your bike on the old railroad thru-way that is now a bike trail that goes from Alexandria to Leesburg... Visit our only real bar, Jimmy's, which is in HERNDON, but hey, close enough... enjoy a truely planned city that is now all built out after 30+ years and so we can now make it suburbia bulge!
Fondest memory: Reston is/was a planned community from the start, so while it is suburban and now part of the hub of the Internet / High Tech corridor being called Silicon Valley East, we still have trees throughout and zoning laws that keep signs small if allowed at all. It's a green town in that regard and that I enjoy most.
