Old Town, New Attitude: Family Fun for All Ages!

From historic sites and museums, to outdoor adventures, kid-friendly  attractions and unique shops and restaurants, there is something for the  whole family to enjoy in Prince William & Manassas.

Day One: Discover more than 200 shops and eateries at Potomac Mills- Virginia’s largest outlet mall. While there, take in a show at the IMAX theater and play in the Virginia-themed children’s area. If you have a family reunion with 10 or more, Potomac Mills staff can arrange a scavenger hunt, $5 meal deals and coupon books.

When the outlet shopping is complete, what better place than a ballpark to reunite with family and friends! Enjoy hotdogs, hamburgers and camaraderie while watching the Potomac Nationals- an affiliate of the Washington Nationals-play.  For large family groups, staff can arrange a catered meal, reserve a section of seats and ensure your experience is memorable.

Day Two: Step into the boots of a Marine at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. The free, interactive museum allows visitors to do everything from board a helicopter headed to Vietnam to attend boot camp and discover countless artifacts.  After, challenge the whole family to a game of laser tag at Laser Quest or take a spin around the Olympic-sized rink at Prince William Ice Center. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy a BBQ dinner along the river at Leesylvania State Park.

Picnic at the park then make a hole-in-one at the Magic Putting Place. This miniature golf center features two 18-hole courses with ponds, windmills anda magic castle.  After, satisfy your sweet tooth at Nathan’s Dairy Bar- a walk-up 50s-style ice cream stand.
