travel with teens

I have one day in Manassas or surrounding areas, mid June. I'll be traveling with another adult and 8 teens from 12-17 years with varying interests. Budget is flexible. I am open to any and all ideas.

The obvious suggestion would be touring the Manassas Battlefield. There's a film, museum exhibits, ranger-guided tours, self-guided walking tours, driving tours and hiking trails. www.nps.gov/mana

You are also only about a 45 minutes - 1 hour drive from Washington D.C. For a one-day visit, I would park at Union Station, walk over to the Capitol and take a tour and then walk down the Mall stopping to visit those Smithsonian museums and the monuments and memorials which interest you. You can't do it all in a day, but if you research what you want to see ahead of time, you can still do a lot.


Finally, if your group wants a day of "fun in the sun", you might want to go to Splashdown Waterpark in Manassas.

As stated above, Manassas isn't known for much other than civil war history.

However, the teens will definitely enjoy the Splashdown Water Park.

There is also another water park in Manassas Park, a couple of miles away.
