Being cooped up indoors for so long has got some of us wanting to stretch our legs and explore the great outdoors. One great way to do that in a safe and responsible way is to have a picnic! Loudoun has some amazing picnic locations so we went ahead and rounded up a few of our favorites.


Here are the top picnic places in Loudoun:


Algonkian Regional Park

Walk down the trail next to the Potomac River to a grassy spot with your picnic blanket or head over to the picnic tables at the park for beautiful views of the water while you dine on your favorite snacks!

Crooked Run Brewing

Crooked Run Brewing has a great patio at their Leesburg location and they encourage guests to bring picnics while hanging out and enjoying brews from the LoCo Ale Trail.


You could also make it an easy, stress-free picnic and leave the food to them by visiting the Sterling location! Make your picnic complete by grabbing Senor Ramon or Daybreak Biscuit on site. Then, top off your delicious picnic with a cocktail from Nectar!
