With a countless array of places to go and things to do, the Atlas District is, quite simply, arts and entertainment galore. This busy nightlife district is packed with lively bars, live music venues, coffee shops and restaurants.

While it’s a bustling area today, the Atlas District has certainly seen its ups and downs over the years. Hit hard by rioting in the late 1960s, it’s taken decades to bring the neighborhood back. Efforts began to gain speed in the late 1990s when a local restaurant owner hatched a plan to transform the three-block area with music venues and bars.

More diverse than some other neighborhoods today, the Atlas District sits less than two miles from the National Mall. This makes it easy to explore some of DC’s hippest,

With a history dating back generations, The Town of Herndon symbolically marks its roots with a little red caboose. At home in Downtown Herndon, the caboose sits on Lynn Street, just adjacent to Herndon’s Depot Museum and the former Washington & Old Dominion railroad line.

The caboose was acquired in more recent years by the Herndon Historical Society, thanks to the efforts of member George Moore. He reportedly came up with the idea of bringing the caboose to Herndon to help memorialize the town’s rail heritage.

The Herndon Depot was first constructed in the mid 1800s. It’s said the farming town then grew up around the railroad. Trains, after all, were extremely important for transporting goods back and forth to DC.
