We spent the entire day here. The facility has a museum, restrooms, theater, gift shop, vending, some of the homes, and many walking trails. You have to ask for the walking trails map. They usually only give out the map of the main park. We...More
Outer trails are not crowded and overlooked by the throngs that hit the two main trails. Even off of the main trails there are numerous side paths. All well maintained with wonderful field views, forest and streams.

Great history here. We like to geocache and there were quite a few good ones in the area. The history was the real reason, the geocaching a fun side bar. The gift shop is super friendly and reasonable. We bought my father some things while...More

On a weekday, you can take the reverse flow VRE Commuter Train that leaves DC about 6:30 AM and arrives in Downtown Manassas at 7:30AM. Check VRE's website for exact stops and times that the train leaves DC Union Station or Alexandria Station.
Then I would suggest having a coffee and sandwich at the "Grounds Central Station" on Main St, just 1.5 blocks from the Manassas Station. The free Manassas Museum opens at 9 AM
On weekdays, you can get to the National Battlefield Visitor Park 3 ways: 1. taxi (about $16 one way); 2. Uber (about $12 one way; or 3. bus to Northern VA Community College. From there you could get a taxi or uber or walk along Rt 234 (not recommended). On weekends, you only have Options 1 and 2.
