Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live on 1.3 acres near the end of a dead end street, so it is very quiet. Our home backs up to 50 acres of woods, with a path leading down to the river. It is a friendly neighborhood with children and lots of dogs! We love the fact that we are 5 minutes from grocery stores and shopping, and yet have privacy and nature surrounding us. Our town is a hub for commuting into the Washington DC area, so there are two places to pick up the commuter train, which can drop you in a couple places in DC or connect you to the metro which runs all over DC. We are surrounded by both city and country--within an hour or less you can be on your way to enjoying lovely hikes in the Blue Ridge, numerous winery tours, Civil War battlesites or simply a drive through historic and rolling horsecountry. Or you can head into the multiple museums and monuments and galleries of Washington DC (most of which is free!) Manassas itself has a lovely and vibrant Old Town full of shops and restaurants.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our house it is a short drive to the town of Manassas, which has a lovely and thriving Old Town. Many shops & restaurants are there, all locally owned. There is also a Thursday and Saturday morning Farmers Market, which we frequent. If you are here in winter, there is ice skating on that same spot! The two famous Battles of Bull Run were fought in this area, and it is a popular tourist area for those interested in Civil War history. Not far is George Washington's home, Mount Vernon, as well as the homes of other American founders. The local area is literally filled with wineries, the closest one in nearby Clifton. We love to head out West towards the Blue Ridge Mountains, sometimes to hike, to pick fruit at local orchards, or just to drive down the winding backroads and see gorgeous scenery and farms and houses (especially in the Upperville/Middleburg area. And of course, Washington DC, with the zoo, the many Smithsonian museums, the monuments, all free and easily reachable
