Leesburg is a historic town located about 40 miles northwest of Washington D.C., along the base of the Catoctin Mountains and adjacent to the Potomac River. The town is also the northwestern terminus of the Dulles Greenway (a private toll road which connects to the Dulles Toll Road at Washington Dulles International Airport.) Leesburg serves as a bedroom community for Washington D.C., but it's also a charming, interesting town on its' own merit. The downtown still has a "small town" look and feel, and offers a variety of shops, fine dining and professional services. The Leesburg area contains 21 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, and at least 63 historic markers in and around the city. The historic places include White's Ferry, which is the only ferry across the Potomac River. It is a cable-guided car and passenger ferry that has plied the river from this site since 1828. Other places of interest include Dodona Manor, the restored, early 19th century home of General George C. Marshall and Oatlands Plantation. Several parks are located in Leesburg, including Red Rocks Wilderness Overlook Regional Park, which offers 67 acres of woodlands and over two miles of hiking trails leading to the bluffs along the river. Leesburg is host to the annual Flower and Garden Festival in April and August Court and Market Days, which focuses on the town's cultural heritage. Leesburg's Halloween Parade is said to be the longest-running Halloween parade east of the Mississippi River.

Leesburg Weather & Climate

The extreme eastern portion of West Virginia ,where West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia meet, generally has a humid continental climate. This means warm to hot, humid summers and cool to cold winters, increasing in severity with elevation. However, the weather in all parts of the state is subject to rapid changes. Slightly more than half the rainfall occurs from April to September. In addition to persistent cloudy skies caused by the damming of moisture by the Alleghenies, West Virginia also experiences some of the most frequent precipitation in the nation. Snow usually lasts only a few days in the lower sections but may persist for weeks in the higher mountain areas. However, severe weather is somewhat less prevalent in West Virginia than in most other eastern states, and it ranks among the least tornado-prone states east of the Rockies.
