Located just 29 miles south of the nation's capital, Prince William and Manassas offer events and attractions for any kind of traveler. With historic sites, pristine golf courses, parks and unique shopping and dining, you are sure to enjoy your visit to our community.
Day one: Begin with a stroll through the town of Occoquan, which features thriving artists, specialty gift shops and quaint restaurants. Eat at The Garden Kitchen or grab tea at the Pink Bicycle Tea Room. Continue your shopping spree at Potomac Mills- the largest outlet mall in Virginia with more than 200 shops and eateries. Step away from the stores to enjoy the great outdoors at Leesylvania State Park, which was once home to Henry Lee III, a Revolutionary War hero who fathered Civil War Confederate General Robert. E. Lee. Situated on a peninsula bordered by the Potomac River and Neabsco and Powells creeks, Leesylvania is known for its excellent fishing, beaches, hiking and canoe opportunities.

When you finish visiting with merchants, let history come alive at the Manassas National Battlefield Park. Stand in the footsteps of "Stonewall" Jackson, watch a short 3-D film that documents the time between the battles and tour the visitor's center to see unique artifacts from the Civil War.
Day three: Engage your senses with a glass of wine at The Winery at La Grange. Nestled at the foothills of the Bull Run Mountains, the winery features stunning views and a manor house that dates back to the 1790s.
