A little town with a big character− that’s Clifton. Here, you’re learning more than a century’s worth of history while enjoying good food along the way.

Clifton’s location (it’s only about an hour away from Washington, D.C.) even makes it more popular. Not to mention the town is a short drive away from regional parks such as Bull Run, Fountainhead, and Sandy Run. Another outdoor destination, Hemlock Overlook, is located within the town.

The town only covers a total area of 0.25 square miles. For its residents, which number at under 300, the size is just perfect. This sense of “smallness” creates a warm and friendly community. It’s easy to feel right at home here.
