Reston: the planned city of Virginia

The wide boulevards, crisscrossing blocks, tree-spotted avenues, and manicured urban spaces of Reston belie its planned nature. Back in the early 1960s, this whole conglomeration of coffee shops, malls, and residential blocks, was meticulously laid out on a blueprint that was intended as a prototype for the post-war city. These days, Reston Town Center is seen as a hip and happening enclave on the edge of Washington, DC, with up-coming businesses, pretty parks, oodles of shopping, an arts center, and some top Reston vacation rentals within reach of the heart of the capital.

Meanwhile, there are 18 famous parkland holes at the Reston National Golf Course, and public swimming pools around Lake Fairfax.
