Herndon

Welcome to Herndon

Herndon is one of the largest incorporated towns in Fairfax County, and its reputation is built on an overflowing sense of culture and community.
 
Within this safe town there are many art centers, galleries, and museums, as well as a well-known, award-winning theater group. It’s not unusual for Herndon to be the site of nearby visitors looking to enjoy a Saturday full of entertainment and leisure, which is in part due to a downtown area loaded with restaurants that provide a rich array of diverse cuisine.
 
The location is big for Herndon. It’s only 45 minutes from DC while also being close to many of Virginia’s rural gems. Most of the homes here were built around the 70s, so there is a whimsical charm about Herndon’s aesthetic that cannot be overlooked. And next door is Reston, where a built up and well-maintained town center is a popular venue.
 
Residents in Herndon enjoy plenty of nearby parks and trails, a local golf course, as well as free concerts and music festivals held throughout the year.
