Farmland until the early 1980s, Ashburn is now a major hi-tech, commercial, residential and nightlife hub. Ashburn is home to chic lifestyle, dining and entertainment destinations such as One Loudoun; sports complexes TopGolf and Ashburn Ice House; and the sprawling tech servers of Data Center Alley. There’s a thriving craft beer scene, many superb ethnic and family-run local restaurants, and a hopping late-night bar scene.

Loudoun’s first brewery, Old Dominion Brewing Company, opened in Ashburn in 1989 and while it’s no longer around, it helped inspire the county’s craft ale revolution.
