Things to Do In Manassas VA

Wonder what to do in Manassas? Are you sitting around on the couch wondering if there is something to do close by. Well lucky for you, the Taheri Dental Group in Manassas cares about more than just your dental health. We not only work in Manassas, but we consider this to be our home. As a result we like to post things about our community as well. Here are a few ideas to get you out of the house.

Manassas National Battlefield Park

This is the site of the Civil War’s first major clash. It is a great historical site located at 6511 Sudley Road Manassas VA 20109. It is just off Interstate 66, 30 miles west of Washington, DC. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk and there is no fee to get into the park. Much of the landscape within Manassas National Battlefield Park still retains its wartime character. Henry Hill, focus of heavy fighting at First Manassas in July 1861, is still cleared, though now neat and lush after decades of farming. A new farmhouse marks the site of the old. The unfinished railroad, scene of much of the fighting at Second Manassas, still runs through the woods north of the Warrenton Turnpike. The peacefulness of the Chinn Farm, its house and outbuildings now gone, belies the violence that took place there. The Stone House – the former Union aid station – still stands as it has since the 1840s, overlooking the Warrenton Turnpike. These and other sites on the battlefields of Manassas can be reached by following hiking trails and driving tours. Uniformed National Park Service personnel will gladly answer your questions and help you make the most of your visit.
