    Reston Town Center

    Reston Town Center








    Yesterday I completed the March of Dimes at Reston Town Center. Surprisingly it only took 30 minutes to get there from Springfield using the Dulles toll road. Four miles with the kids was great exercise and Reston is beautiful.

    This acclaimed outdoor venue offers more than 50 retail shops, 30 restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, and the Hyatt Regency Reston Hotel. And at the Center’s hub, the Pavilion hosts special events, concerts, festivals throughout the year and ice skating in winter, making this the focal point of the community and Northern Virginia’s “downtown.”
