Located just 25 miles to the west and south of Washington, D.C., Prince William County offers a wide variety of living, recreation, shopping, dining, arts, and historic options. With the Blue Ridge Mountains, wineries, and horse county to our west, beaches to the south and east, and within a few hours of many major metropolitan areas, we’re close to it all! The Prince William region consists of two incorporated cities Manassas and Manassas Park, and four incorporated towns Haymarket, Dumfries, Occoquan and Quantico which is the only town in the U.S. that is almost completely surrounded by a military installation-The Quantico Marine Corps Base. Our community was named One of the Top 100 Communities for Young People (America’s Promise Alliance and ING) for three consecutive years and Gainesville was recently named the #1 City in Virginia for Young Families (WalletHub). Transportation options include Virginia Railway Express stations, Metro stations just outside our borders, and close proximity to three international airports.
