There are still a few weeks to check off some items from your summer fun bucket list. Although this summer has presented all of us with some abnormal circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still fun to be had. Here are four family activities to try in Loudoun before summer comes to a close.
1. Cheer on the Loudoun United
To get your fix for live sports (who doesn’t miss it?), head on over to Segra Field at Bolen Park in Leesburg and cheer on our resident professional soccer team, Loudoun United FC. Loudoun United hosts a home games against the New York Red Bulls II at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 29. Buy your tickets here.
2. Hunt for Hidden Prizes in Leesburg…Virtually
If you’re feeling something more in town, consider virtually exploring current Leesburg through a 3D Virtual Tour while hunting for hidden prizes from each business. By participating on September 4–September 11, you’ll not only be learning about Leesburg and supporting local businesses, but you’ll also receive a “Support Local Leesburg” t-shirt, a koozie, a drawstring bag, hand sanitizer, and a chance to win a $100 gift card. Reserve your spot here.
3. Float Down the Lazy River at A.V. Symington
What’s summer without a day at the pool? In order to stay compliant with Phase 3 of the Forward Virginia plan, all interactive features are closed, but the A.V. Symington Aquatic Center pool and lazy river are open at Ida Lee Park. Stop by from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week to enjoy a last minute swim before the fall. Learn more here.
4. Go on a Family Bike Ride
Put on your helmets and jump on your bike for a ride along the 45-mile W&OD Trail. Stretching all the way from Arlington to Purcellville, with many entry points in Leesburg, a bike ride on the W&OD Trail is the perfect way to spend a day with the family before the school year gets underway. Check out all the stops you can make along the way with this interactive map.
