It’s February and that can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s that time of year to take your special someone out for a romantic night on the town. If you’re looking for a perfect local venue for dinner and some after-dinner entertainment, Prince William and Manassas have you covered!
Begin your romantic evening with a trip to one of the two area wineries. The Winery at Bull Run is located in nearby
Centreville, and adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield. At this local delight, you can purchase a delicious 2012 Merlot or a 2013 Petit Manseng guaranteed to help set the mood. Or, head to Haymarket to visit the Winery at La Grange where you can select a savory 2011 Fletcher’s Chardonnay to bring home, barrel-aged nine months in French oak.
For dinner, try one of my favorite restaurants, Malones of Manassas, for a fine dining experience with melt-in-your-mouth entrees and an eclectic array of delectable desserts.
Or, if you’re east of Prince William Parkway, stop by Bistro L’Hermitage located off Occoquan Road. This award-winning restaurant is dedicated to serving delicious French cuisine and the heavenly entrees combined with attentive service make it a perfect Valentine’s Day dinner destination.
After dinner, make your way to the Hylton Performing Arts Center for a special rendition of Valentine Day’s Pops by the American Festival Pops Orchestra (Feb. 14, 8 p.m.). If theater is more enticing, check out the Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory in downtown Manassas.
These are just a few ways you can spend a special evening in Prince William and Manassas. You can find more information about local Valentine’s Day activities on our event calendar at discoverpwm.com.
