“Not just for history buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Ok so I am reviewing the battlefields not in terms of historical value for sightseeing but in terms of hiking trails. We used the trails around and through the historical grounds as a six mile hike one weekend and I found it very enjoyable. It isn't physically challenging in terms of terrain but takes you through woods, fields and enough historical sites to keep even marginally intellectual people interested. At times the trails were a bit confusing so I recommend getting a trail map but a great walk that would accommodate varying athletic abilities. Nicely maintained nature!

“A few Hours Well Spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The battlefield site is very simple, but with a well organized self-guided tour through the fields we learned a lot about the battles (first and second Bull Run) and the people involved. The museum as also very simple, but well done and informative. We spent about 3 hours here total and really enjoyed the learning experience.

“Knowledgable but not enthusiastic guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had a park ranger guide with our group of ACW tourists. Perhaps it was because of the rain but this guy definitely didn't want to be out in the field with us. He was very knowledgeable but his lack of enthusiasm was distracting from the information.

“Beautiful View and cool history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

When we got there we went to the museum and read all the history about the battlefield. We went on a 45 minute tour but seemed short to me because it was so interesting. After that we went to the second Manassas tour and it was also very interesting and rich with history. The last thing we did was see the the movie they were showing which was awesome. Overall the battlefield was full and rich with history.

“Beautiful Grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Really liked the lit display that brought the movement of the battle in that area to life. Just lovely grounds that are scenic in every direction. So nice that it has remained that way and you don't feel like there are a million subdivisions right there close.
