Make it a Day, Evening, or Weekend Adventure
Come See “Pathways & Precipices” Exhibit & Explore Historic Manassas
Of course I can’t wait for you to see the “Pathways & Precipices” Exhibit at The ART Factory in the historic candy factory building across from the iconic Manassas Train Station. But why not make a day, evening, or weekend of it taking in what the town of Historic Manassas has to offer?
If you have not recently visited historic Manassas, Virginia you will be pleasantly surprised with its fresh vitality and diverse offerings. Their tag line is now “Historic Heat. Modern Beat”!
Since I have been frequenting the area recently, I have had the opportunity to explore and experience some of the delights of this revitalized area myself and can recommend several personally.
To make your visit as enjoyable as possible, here are recommendations to maximize your enjoyment as you explore more of the area!
Parking & Visitor Information
Free Parking is available at the parking garage which is located next to the train station and directly across the train tracks (just walk across!) from The ART Factory building entrance. Parking Garage entrance is off of Prince William Street between Main and Battle Streets.
I found two websites which can help you plan your visit. Both have great information on local dining, shopping, attractions, and accommodation information.
- https://visitmanassas.org (Prince William County’s site)
- https://historicmanassas.org/ (Historic Manassas Town site)
Historic Manassas’ office is located in the train station where you can stop by in person for input, maps, flyers, etc.
