The Area

Welcome to the Town of Herndon, the third largest town in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Amidst a 21st century Northern Virginia landscape of high rise buildings, industrial complexes and transportation hubs, Herndon maintains a small town charm that is evident in its downtown, its neighborhoods and its commercial areas.

Only minutes away from Dulles International Airport in western Fairfax County, Herndon is the closest town to the Smithsonian Institution’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center annex of the National Air and Space Museum.  Today, the W&OD Railroad is a 45-mile long hike and bike trail. The train station is a museum and visitors center. These examples are typical of the Town’s commitment to preserving the past and using it to enhance the recreational and cultural quality of life of today’s families and businesses. Visit historic downtown Herndon enjoy a relaxing dinner and even a free concert on the town green as you enjoy the ambiance of this charming pre-civil war town.
