Reston is a census-designated place, located in Fairfax County, Virginia within the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. As of the 2000 census, the population was 56,407. Reston is an internationally-known planned community that was built post-World War II with the concept of optimal land use for residential development in American suburbia. It was one of the first new towns founded in the mid-1960s. Reston has five village centers and one town center. Each village center, all of which (except for North Point) predate the Reston Town Center, were designed to be a half-mile walk from most homes in the community. Denser developments, such as apartments and town homes are clustered around each village center. The first village center built was the critically-acclaimed Lake Anne, followed by Hunters Woods, Tall Oaks, South Lakes, and North Point. Reston offers 15 outdoor pools, 49 tennis courts, four lakes, a zoo, hiking trails, golf and a 72-acre Walker Nature Education Center sanctuary. Reston is also home to an award-winning theater group which presents four stage productions annually. In the summer, free concerts are offered at Lake Anne Plaza on Thursday evenings and at the Reston Town Center on Saturday evenings. Various festivals take place at these locations also. Canoes, rowboats, kayaks, and paddle boats can also be rented on Lake Anne during the summer. Reston is just 20 miles from the many cultural attractions, museums and monuments in Washington D.C.

Reston Weather & Climate

Northeast Virginia's climate is classified as mild, mid-latitude, with a subcategory of humid subtropical. Northeast Virginia generally has mild winters with no dry season and hot summers. Hurricanes make the coastal areas of Virginia vulnerable, but it's rare for a major hurricane to threaten the Virginia coast as hurricanes that far north tend to weaken due to cooler coast waters and increasingly westerly winds. Heavy rain from tropical cyclones are possible, however. Thunderstorms are an occasional concern with the state averaging anywhere from 30-50 days of thunderstorm activity annually, but the highest area of occurrence is towards the west.
