Popular Tourist Attractions
As mentioned, Manassas is a city that’s steeped in history, so it probably comes as no surprise that many of the things to do here are related to that history. Below, you’ll find some of our top picks.
Manassas National Battlefield Park
Manassas was the site of two battles during the Civil War. This park marks the location of them. You can walk the ground once trod by the armies of both sides and get a feel for history that’s richer, deeper, and more intense than anything you could get by visiting a museum. It’s absolutely marvelous and magical, so hurry here in your RV rental Manassas Virginia!
The Manassas Museum
Granted, it’s not as good as walking the battlefield, but this small museum is still high quality and informative. It won’t take the whole day, but it, combined with the tour of the battlefield itself will leave you informed and inspired. A truly great place to visit.
Blu Water Scuba
If you’ve never been scuba diving or snorkeling, this is a great place to learn. It’s one of those things that people often think of and dream about doing, but seldom get the opportunity. While you’re here, take that opportunity. You’ll be very glad you did.
You’ll find plenty of campgrounds in the area to choose from, so don’t worry about not being able to find a place to stay. There are too many in the region to list, but we’ll outline some of the best below.
