Three days in Reston and Herndon

I have a definite routine of things I like to do in Reston. But sometimes it's nice to shake it up with new ideas. So I was thrilled when the Washingtonian wrote an article in the neighborhood guides about things to do in Reston and Herndon.

Sure, a few of my favorites made this list--Lake Anne Plaza, the Reston Farmer's Market, Walker Nature Center (which is having the Spring Festival on May 2, 1-5 PM), and Urban Retreat (my favorite place for chic home furnishings). But there were several things on the list that I had forgotten about until I read this article. I know what I'll be doing this weekend...

  • Ariake is a Japanese restaurant Washingtonian describes as Zen-like spot. It's on Glade Dr. in South Reston, and it has a great flagstone patio for warm-weather dining.
  • Green Lizard Cycling is a bike shop. But it's also a coffee shop. I love that combination. The owners are very community oriented, and it's a great place to hang out.
  • ArtSpace Herndon is Herndon's hub for the visual arts in historic downtown (and just a few blocks from the Green Lizard). I may get a coup of coffee and wander over to see what exhibit is showing.

Even though I know how much there is to do in this community, it was nice to have a reminder. I suggest reading (and bookmarking) the Reston, Herndon neighborhood guide for a complete list of fun things to do--and then make a plan to go do everything on the list.

Enjoy your spring and summer.
