If you are looking for a place somewhere in Virginia minus any jazz, much more laidback then you must visit Manassas. This sleepy, slow paced town has a gorgeous downtown that accommodates cute cafes, reminiscing a little about Europe. These cafes, mind you, however, serve some of the most delicious food! Grab a bite and just watch the world pass by. Speaking of cafes, one cannot miss the fabulous local breweries too here. In fact, these breweries also make it to the list of attractions that the Manassas tourism covers. The Manassas National Battlefield Park is the main attraction of the city that preserves the site of two major American Civil War battles. Secondly, it is The Manassas Museum, a specialty museum that is a must-visit. For those having an inclination towards art, the Hylton Performing Arts Center is the place to visit. Splash Down Waterpark, Ben Lomond Manor House & Old Rose Garden, Heritage Brewing Company, and the BadWolf Brewing Company too are worth a visit.
