Manassas offers the best of both worlds: cultured city life in the nation’s capital and charming small towns a short drive way. Explore your options and take your pick.
From monuments and memorials, to eclectic neighborhoods and true local flavor, the nation’s capital is a place unlike any other. D.C. is truly a tourist’s delight, offering world-class cultural events, a vibrant and delicious dining scene, museums packed with history and monuments honoring our nation’s founding fathers. It is also home to many professional sports teams including Washington Capitals (2018 Stanley Cup Champions), Washington Nationals, D.C. United, Washington Wizards and the Washington Kastles.
Shenandoah National Park
One of the best ways to explore the Blue Ridge Mountains is to visit the lush Shenandoah National Park about 65 miles southwest of Manassas. This 200,000-acre natural wonder offers camping and lodging facilities, rushing rivers, diverse wildlife and miles of hiking trails (don’t miss the views from the Hawksbill Canyon route.) Not far from the park’s Rockfish Gap entrance, Luray Caverns draws cave fans with cathedral-sized spaces, dazzling rock formations and family-focused attractions like a rope course and a toy museum.
Within a short drive of Manassas is “Wine Country” featuring tempting wineries and tasting rooms along tree-lined country roads with exquisite mountain views. Manassas and Prince William County has its own Steins, Vines and Moonshine Trail. Experience live music, farm-to-fork foods and local artistry while enjoying a glass of your favorite spirits in Virginia’s beautiful countryside.
