Executive Director Discover Prince William & Manassas
Celebrate your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day by planning a romantic “staycation” in Prince William and Manassas. With shops, spas, romantic bed and breakfasts and more, there are infinite possibilities to create a weekend you will remember for years to come.
Start your romantic journey by checking into Manassas Junction or Bennett House, Victorian Bed and Breakfasts in the heart of Old Town Manassas. Bundle up and stroll the quaint streets of this Virginia “main street community” or ice skate at the Harris Pavilion outdoor rink in the city center. Enjoy a romantic dinner at City Square Café, Carmello’s or one of the other locally owned restaurants, then listen to the China National Symphony Orchestra, which performs at the Hylton Performing Arts Center on February 9.
Take another day to explore the historic towns of Haymarket or Occoquan. In Haymarket, savor the locally produced wines at The Winery at La Grange, then cuddle by their fireplace. You can indulge your sweet tooth at Cupcake Heaven and get pampered at Tranquility Day Spa & Salon where you’ll enjoy cheese, crackers and other treats while you relax.
Or, travel to Historic Occoquan for unique shops and restaurants. Paint pottery together at Paint Your Heart Out or enjoy complimentary wine tastings at Tastefully Yours and Old Dominion Wine Shoppe. After, stop by the Artists’ Undertaking Gallery to meet local artists and see a wide array of their work. Finish the day with a romantic dinner along the water at Madigan’s Waterfront or with French cuisine at Bistro L’hermitage.
