Slip away from work and home life with your girlfriends for a weekend of shopping, wine and pampering in Prince William & Manassas.
Day one: Stroll down the streets of Historic Occoquan where you will find almost 60 unique shops and restaurants. Find that gift for someone special, mingle with merchants or splurge on something for yourself. Enjoy lunch at one of the cafes then relax at Dansk Day Spa. This locally run spa offers massages, facial and body treatments, tanning and other services. Or, test your art skills at Paint Your Heart Out- a paint-your-own pottery studio.
Get ready to hit the stores again - this time at Virginia's largest outlet mall. Potomac Mills features more than 200 shops and eateries including New York & Company Outlet, Talbots Outlet, the first Bloomingdale's Outlet on the East Coast and more. Head back to Occoquan for dinner along the Occoquan River at Madigan's Waterfront or go French at Bistro L'hermitage.
Day Two: Visit Old Town Manassas for more unique stores and eateries. Stop at Opera House Gourmet on a weekend for a wine tasting then grab a sweet treat and espresso at Persnickety Cakes. Head to the foothills of the Bull Run Mountains for a relaxing afternoon at The Winery at La Grange. The winery features stunning views and an 18th-century manor house. Enjoy your tasting then snuggle into a chair by the fireplace or take a bottle outside for a picnic. The winery produces Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Norton and Merlot. Finish your girlfriend getaway weekend with a show at Hylton Performing Arts Center. The stunning new facility features local and national dance, theater and music performances.
