Why Move to Manassas, VA? The Location Says it All!
Manassas is located in the northern part of Virginia and is part of the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria metropolitan area. It’s best known for its historical significance in the US. Everywhere you look there’s rich history shown throughout the architecture, the many museums, arts and culture, and more.
Dating back to the 1800s, Manassas was the host of many of the country’s most important moments. The First Battle of Bull Run, or Battle of First Manassas, was the first major land battle of the American Civil War. In the Second Battle of Bull Run, the city was no more than a railroad crossing with rails leading to Richmond, Washington, DC, and the Shenandoah Valley. After the war, in 1873, the crossroads were incorporated into the town of Manassas. History buffs can explore more about the fascinating history of this area through a slew of museums. The main historical museum is the Manassas Museum, which includes exhibits on the Civil War and local history.
The rich history isn’t the only reason to live here. In Manassas, it’s easy to travel within the city and internationally with easy access to transportation. This area earned an 88/100 walkability score, but also offers plenty of options for local transportation. The Virginia Railway Express, Amtrak OmniRide, and OmniLink provide an easy route to Washington, DC, major routes in Manassas and Prince William County, and many other areas of Manassas.
