This is a PERFECT opportunity to take some time to learn about the rich history of our area. Consider taking a “school day” to go on a driving tour of the Mosby Heritage area. Along the winding back roads in Northern Virginia, over 150 years ago a deadly cat-and-mouse game played out between John S Mosby – “the Gray Ghost” – and Union calvary. As you drive and stop along the way, take your time to take in the atmosphere, take photos, and literally touch the past where you can.
You and your family can also partake in an historic Loudoun County Scavenger Hunt! This three-part scavenger hunt has you exploring historic Leesburg (through a walking tour), as well as driving through northern and southern Loudoun. Sampling the best Loudoun has to offer, this is perfect as an outing for families and does not have to be done all at once. (BONUS: Once you complete the scavenger hunt and fill in all the answers, you earn a FREE T-Shirt sponsored by the Mosby Heritage Area Association!)
go to my blog Lauren is a licensed real estate agent with Pearson Smith Realty in Ashburn, VA. Lauren and her husband settled in the Lowes Island/Cascades community of Loudoun County in 1999. She immediately fell in love with all that the area has to offer – the friendly suburban communities, the rolling hills, the quaint horse and farm towns, and her favorite, the charming wineries! As a real estate professional, Lauren is thrilled to be able to share her passion for this area and continue to assist families along their journey. The thing Lauren loves most about her work is the feeling of satisfaction that comes from helping people realize their dreams and achieve their goals. She builds partnerships with her clients that last well beyond the sale because she conducts her business the same way she lives her life; with honesty, respect, determination and a healthy dose of fun. Lauren wants you to feel comfortable, informed and relaxed.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys spending time with family and friends visiting the local wineries, checking out new restaurants, traveling to the beach, and watching her daughter horseback ride during their weekly outing to the barn. In her blog, Living Large in Loudoun, Lauren shares all sorts of information about her passions: real estate, community happenings, home and garden information and tips, and of course, what to do and where to go to truly enjoy this beautiful area we live in.
