Leesburg is the county seat of Loudon County, Virginia. It was founded in 1758 and named for a relative of the infamous Robert E. Lee, Thomas Lee. Famous families from American history lived there, and it became the center of government during the War of 1812.
Sitting as it did on the northernmost border of the Confederate States of America as the Civil War broke out, the town changed hands between the north and south over 150 times, and saw much battle and chaos during the war.
When to Visit Leesburg, VA
Leesburg is in a part of the United States that experiences all four seasons distinctly. Though it's a developed city, its proximity to a more pastoral area of Virginia means you can experience the natural beauty of the seasons all around.
You may see snowfall in the winter, as the area receives about 21 inches of snow per year, with temperatures averaging in the 40s for highs and mid-20s for lows. In the spring, flowering trees, wildflowers, and verdant green hills surround Leesburg, and the highs are pleasant in the 60s and 70s, with lows in the 50s. Summer brings some humidity but it's not terribly hot, with highs in the upper 80s and cooling off at night. The fall offers a painted landscape of yellows, oranges, and reds and summer temperatures into October, when it cools to spring-like conditions.
Because of its location near Washington D.C., hotel prices may increase around the beginning of April each year, when millions of visitors descend on the capital for the Cherry Blossom Festival, a celebration of the peak bloom of the over 3,000 cherry trees around D.C.
