  • On our visit to Leesburg, we stopped into Morven Park to go for a hike. The grounds have a nice 1.2 mile hiking loop into the woods. It's a little steep at first but it is not too tough a hike...

  • Well worth the cost of admission! They did a great job. Go at your own pace and enjoy the holiday experience.
  • We checked out Holiday Road here. It was a great place to hold the event. The park is expansive, well groomed, and there's tons of parking. There's a lot of history here: a mansion which was the home of a former governor, museum, and also equestrian center. There are nature trails and casual picnicking spots. You can take Holiday tours of the Davis mansion right now. I am fairly certain the gardens can be rented for parties and weddings as well. We didn't know of this park before Holiday Road, but we now consider it a great park to add in our rotation.
