Smile: Leesburg one of state’s friendliest towns
The Town of Leesburg has been named one of the state's friendliest towns in a state lifestyle magazine.
In Virginia Living's 2014 "Best of Virginia" travel issue, a reader survey pegged Leesburg as the second-friendliest city in Northern Virginia, behind only Warrenton.
“We are very honored, but not surprised, to receive this great recognition from Virginia Living’s readers,” said Kristen Umstattd, mayor of Leesburg, in a written statement. “Our residents and businesses are some of the nicest people you’ll find anywhere in the country and we are very proud of them."
"Leesburg is a fun place to visit," she added. "Please come visit and find out why!”
In addition to the friendliest tag, several businesses were also named "Best of Virginia."
Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers was declared the state's best burger joint. DunlapWeaverPLLC was named best law firm, and Ketterman's Jewelers received best fine jewelry store accolades.
Ten other businesses received second or third place mentions, including Mom's Apple Pie, MacDowell Brew Kitchen, Leesburg Vintner and CycleLuv.
