Sledding in Vienna VA

Whenever anyone talks about snow, don’t you find your mind wandering back to your childhood and remembering all the adventures you had in the snow? We sure do. Some of us on The Belt Team started out life in Southern California. We didn’t have much experience with snow in our early days. In fact, we hardly even ever saw rain! I remember traveling to Denver for a wedding once and in order to play in the snow, we had to wrap plastic baggies around our hands & feet because we didn’t own gloves or boots (who needed gloves & boots at the beach?!).

44 years ago, we moved from California to Vienna. And not long after we arrived, IT SNOWED! Dad bought us our first sled and we immediately set out to enjoy this new world of speed & excitement. We had an old-fashioned Flexible Flyer sled and soon gained a reputation for the fastest sled in Waverly. We’d sled for hours and hours, with brief intermissions for hot chocolate and sustenance, only to head out for more. Night-time sledding was the best. Those were the days.

Since we’re finally having a “real” snowstorm we thought we’d share what we think are the . . .

So what are your favorite snow memories? And your top spots for sledding? (It all depends on where you live in Vienna, doesn’t it?!)

PS – If you start going stir-crazy and need to get out, there’s one place in Vienna we have always found open during a snow storm (at least since 1977 when it opened) and that’s The Amphora. Even back in the 90’s when we had three double-digit snow storms in a several week period, The Amphora stayed open. We will be posting a list of what’s open after the snow begins to fall so STAY TUNED!

Neighborhood Spotlight: Waverly – Vienna VA

The Belt Team LOVES selling homes in Waverly Subdivision in Vienna, VA. Waverly is a wonderful neighborhood of 148 homes in Vienna – near Wolftrap Elementary School and in the Madison High School district. It’s about halfway between the “Heart of Vienna” and Wolftrap Farm Park and is one of Vienna’s most popular “sidewalk” communities.

And it’s where several members of The Belt Team grew up. In fact, 4 of the 8 Belt Team members have lived in Waverly. Remember the days when kids played neighborhood flashlight tag at night and kickball during the day? When kids built tree forts & caught pollywogs in the creek? We certainly do. Because that’s what we did many years ago when we lived in Waverly. Waverly was popular then and it remains popular now. (There’s even a Facebook group called “The Kids of Clachan Court & Waverly Development”.)

Of the 148 homes in Waverly, The Belt Team has had 48 sales and sold some homes two and three times! We’ve sold more than any other realtor or team. We don’t just say we like to list homes in Waverly – we sell them!

Having lived in Waverly for many years, The Belt Team intimately knows the neighborhood & can share all the benefits of both Waverly & the greater Vienna community with potential buyers. Here’s a video snapshot of Waverly:

The 6 Best Sledding Hills In Vienna, VA

Real estate is all about location, and so is SLEDDING; so in honor of this weekend’s blizzard, we present you with the 6 Best Sledding Hills in Vienna, VA!

(And PS – If you start going stir crazy – this is a GREAT time to search for a new home on our state-of-the-art web site or get a FREE online INSTANT estimate of your home’s value.)

Sledding in Vienna VA

Whenever anyone talks about snow, don’t you find your mind wandering back to your childhood and remembering all the adventures you had in the snow? We sure do. Some of us on The Belt Team started out life in Southern California. We didn’t have much experience with snow in our early days. In fact, we hardly even ever saw rain! I remember traveling to Denver for a wedding once and in order to play in the snow, we had to wrap plastic baggies around our hands & feet because we didn’t own gloves or boots (who needed gloves & boots at the beach?!).

44 years ago, we moved from California to Vienna. And not long after we arrived, IT SNOWED! Dad bought us our first sled and we immediately set out to enjoy this new world of speed & excitement. We had an old-fashioned Flexible Flyer sled and soon gained a reputation for the fastest sled in Waverly. We’d sled for hours and hours, with brief intermissions for hot chocolate and sustenance, only to head out for more. Night-time sledding was the best. Those were the days.

Since we’re finally having a “real” snowstorm we thought we’d share what we think are the . . .

So what are your favorite snow memories? And your top spots for sledding? (It all depends on where you live in Vienna, doesn’t it?!)

The 6 Best Sledding Hills In Vienna, VA #CloseFCSP

Fairfax County Snow DayThe big story in Northern VA today is SNOW and SCHOOLS, and the BIG mistake Fairfax County Public Schools made by their failure to delay or close schools. #CloseFCPS is trending in first place on twitter, and even trending nationally!

My daughter is a school teacher who lives 2.4 miles from the school where she teaches. It took her 60 minutes to drive there today. And she passed multiple accidents along the way. I am grateful she is safe. There are a lot of crazy stories out there and we appreciate the police & rescue personnel who are helping Fairfax students as well as Loudoun and the rest of Northern VA, DC & MD.

In the meantime, we figure it’s a good time for our annual “6 Best Sledding Hills In Vienna Virginia” post! We may not have a TON of snow, but there’s enough for your little ones to get their saucers out. Stay Safe Vienna!
