Located in western Fairfax County -- just minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport -- Herndon is the third largest Town in Virginia with a population of 22,000. It has become a hub for information technology with several companies located in Herndon at the forefront. (from http://www.herndon-va.gov/)
One of the best examples of Herndon's blending of commerce and character is the Herndon Municipal Center complex. The $16 million complex was completed in 1995 after more than a decade of careful planning to revitalize the historic downtown and ensure it would be a thriving "people place," reminiscent of Herndon's early, bustling days as a farming village.
Herndon has a variety of other outstanding recreational amenities -- nine parks, the Herndon Community Center, the W&OD Bike Trail and the Herndon Centennial Golf Course. There are more than 100 restaurants offering a delicious selection of international cuisine and hotels that make visitors from across the country and the world feel at home in Herndon.
