Modern Reston’s Launch Giveaway!

Welcome to Modern Reston, your source for everything hip + happening in Reston and surrounding areas.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Modern Reston, an online lifestyle magazine that explores living, dining, art and recreation in Reston and beyond. We take the old adage “Live. Work. Play.” and dial it up to present what’s current and relevant to today’s modern Reston resident.

In honor of our launch, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to Reston Town Center to one lucky reader. To participate, all you have to do is leave a comment below with a story idea you’d like to see featured on Modern Reston. The comment must contain at least one informational link to be considered.


The winner will be chosen at random and announced on Monday, September 15, 2014 on our Facebook page. While you are there, Like us! You can also follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Good luck and welcome to the Modern Reston family!

    Love the new online magazine! Honestly, this is just what we’ve needed. And the look is great!

    • Thanks, Janis! This was the kind of site we really wanted to see in Reston, so we decided to go ahead and make it. I’m so glad you’re enjoying it. Just wait and see what great stuff we have planned for the future!

  • Michelle Wiss

    Love it, everyone. And I’m so pleased to see you love Reston as much as my family does! In the home area, I would love to see spotlight articles about various Reston clusters and neighborhoods. Reston history sections would be great too! We have such a rich, interesting history that I don’t think newer residents even know about.

    • It’s hard not to love Reston! It has something for just about everyone. We do plan to discuss the various clusters and their events and histories, thanks. Please let us know if there’s ever a part of town you’d like us to discuss.

    I would like to see stories about volunteer opportunities for all ages in the area. Reston is so wonderful, but there is need in every community. I recommend a story about Vecinos Unidos, We are an all-volunteer organization starting our 17th year helping low-income students in grades 1-6 with written homework and reading. We meet in Herndon, Monday-Thursday 4:30 to 6 p.m. We always have a waiting list of students and would love to have more volunteers, age 16+. For more information, email [email protected]. Thank you!

      In a more general sense, highlighting Reston nonprofits would be really cool. This town has a fantastic history and culture of social justice.

      • Modern Reston Michelle

        Wonderful idea!

    • That sounds like a really wonderful project, Janis, thank you!

  • Community Counts

    I love Bob Simon, but there are also other older Restonites who are still doing amazing things positively impacting the community and I would like to be the one covering them for that is “my space” ! Be aware of the age wave:

    Can tall oaks shopping center make a come back?
    I drive by here at least once per workday and oh how I’d love it if it made a comeback (independent coffee shop and a grocery store). I’ll not hold my breath but it could be a good article.
