Historic Middleburg, here in Loudoun County, makes the list (at number 5) as one of the 20 Best Day Trips in the U.S. according to the The Huffington Post.
“Middleburg is known as the epicenter of Virginia’s horse country and is a popular retreat for D.C. power brokers. Fox hunts and polo matches are the big social events here, but there’s also plenty of antique shopping to be done as well. The National Sporting Library & Museum is located here, and there’s no shortage of upscale, British and French inspired gastropubs. Love wine? The area is home to about 30 producers.”
If you haven’t yet, make plans to visit Middleburg this summer (and be sure to get some fresh ice cream at the Home Farm Store). To see the full report, and to see who else made the cut, check out the article here.
