The Burn Oval

Welcome to The Burn, a news and lifestyle blog covering what people are buzzing about in Ashburn, Virginia. Or as the kids and hipsters call it: The Burn.

We’ll cover new restaurants and local businesses, big community events, our never-ending road construction, amazing Ashburn homes, interesting neighbors, fun history facts, and more.

Our coverage area is really focused on Ashburn proper — roughly from Route 7 to the north, Belmont Ridge to the west, Brambleton to the south and Loudoun County Parkway to the east. But we’ll also include what we call “Ashburn adjacent” — meaning if Ashburn residents regularly go there — think Village at Leesburg, Landsdowne, maybe even the Dulles Town Center — we’ll look for stories there too.

Finally, we really hope you’ll be part of the community here at The Burn. Bookmark this page on your computer or phone. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
