Reston, Virginia was conceived as a planned community by Robert E. Simon. Founded on April 20, 1964 (Simon's 50th birthday) and named for his initials, it was the first modern, post-war planned community in America and is now the most populous place in Fairfax County. Areas within Reston such as Reston Town Center and Lake Anne Plaza provide the perfect gathering places to enjoy seasonal events, a night out on the town, or a memorable shopping excursion. While in town, don't forget to visit the Reston Museum. See you soon!
