Get aroundEdit


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.



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