Prince William County [1] is in Northern Virginia.

Cities[edit]

  • Manassas — the county seat, despite being an independent city, not actually part of the county!
  • Quantico — home to the largest marine base in the world, Marine Corps Base Quantico.
  • Woodbridge — a major shopping destination for Potomac Mills Outlets.

Other destinations[edit]

  • Manassas National Battlefield Park, [2]. Site of both the the first and second Battles of Bull Run.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

The closest major airport is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (IATA: DCA), [3], although Manassas also has its own, for private planes: Manassas Regional IATA: HEF, [4].

Otherwise, the main artery is without question I-95.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

Sightseeing in Prince William County is overwhelmingly military-related: the National Museum of the Marine Corps and Manassas Battlefield National Park, both of which attract a lot of residents and other out-of-state tourists coming down from D.C.

Do[edit][add listing]

Buy[edit][add listing]

The Potomac Mills Outlets are the other big regional draw, again bringing in the visitors from D.C.
