I have a definite routine of things I like to do in Reston. But sometimes it’s nice to shake it up with new ideas. So I was thrilled when Washingtonian magazine wrote an article in the neighborhood guides about things to do in Reston and Herndon.
Sure, a few of my favorites made this list — Lake Anne Plaza, the Reston Farmers Market, Walker Nature Education Center (which is having its Spring Festival May 2, 1 to 5 p.m.), and Urban Retreat (my favorite place for chic home furnishings).
But there were several things on the list that I had forgotten about until I read this article. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend…
- Ariake is a Japanese restaurant Washingtonian describes as Zen-like spot. It’s on Glade Drive near Hunters Woods Village Center in South Reston, and it has a great flagstone patio for warm-weather dining.
- Green Lizard Cycling is a bike shop in Old Town Herndon. But it’s also a coffee shop. I love that combination. The owners are very community oriented, and it’s a great place to hang out.
- ArtSpace Herndon is Herndon’s hub for the visual arts in historic downtown (and just a few blocks from the Green Lizard). I may get a coup of coffee and wander over to see what exhibit is showing.
Even though I know how much there is to do in this community, it was nice to have a reminder. I suggest reading (and bookmarking) the Reston, Herndon neighborhood guide for a complete list of fun things to do–and then make a plan to go do everything on the list.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
