Outdoor & Leisure
Boredom is never a problem in McLean. With a seemingly limitless variety of recreational activities in which residents are invited to participate and an exciting array of entertainment options, McLean’s citizens are never far from a good time.
The two private country clubs that flank the community offer golfing, swimming, tennis and more. In addition, there are several public golf courses near McLean. Numerous swimming and tennis clubs are spread throughout McLean’s neighborhoods, while local stables offer horseback riding lessons and trail rides.
Those interested in the area’s history can visit the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, a small farm that has been restored to reflect life during the American Revolution. Many aspects of the era are brought to life and explained by volunteers in period costumes. For nature lovers, there are beautifully maintained public parks that offer relaxing trail walks and open-air pavilions situated in wooded settings.
Youth sport organizations like McLean Little League Baseball and Softball, the Great Falls Softball League, McLean Youth, Inc. (offering basketball, rugby, lacrosse, football, cheerleading and track), and McLean Youth Soccer lead the way for kids who seek organized athletic activities.
For the professional sports enthusiast, nearby entertainment includes the Washington Redskins (football), the Wizards (basketball), the Capitals (hockey), and Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals (the newly relocated and renamed Montreal Expos). The Baltimore Orioles are also close enough to offer McLean residents an opportunity to root for an American League team.
