Ashburn is in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Understand[edit]

In many ways Ashburn is the poster child for the so called "McMansionization of America". The homes in Ashburn are nearly all new, large, uniform in character, and have little or any recognizable architectural style. Brambleton, a planned urban development in Ashburn, is one of the fastest selling developments in the country.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

Ashburn is serviced by 2 major airports in the Washington DC metro area. Washington Dulles (IAD) is about 5 miles from Ashburn and Reagan National (DCA) is about 25 miles. Most people who are visiting Ashburn from far away distances are better off flying into Washington Dulles International Airport. The easiest and most convenient way to get to Ashburn from the airport is via taxi. Washington Flyer Taxi has exclusive rights to service IAD and a taxi ride from airport will cost you anywhere between $15-20.

By car[edit]

Coming by car, Ashburn is intersected by a few major roads in the Northern Virginia area. Accessible via the Dulles Greenway (toll road), Route 7, or Route 28, travelers have a few options when driving to this city.
