Seated on the Potomac River in northern Virginia, Prince William County land and farms benefit from beautiful riverfront views alongside the hustle and bustle of the Washington metropolitan area. Prince William County has one of the most robust economies in Virginia, with the 20th-highest income of any county in the United States. Many residents commute to Washington DC, Arlington, or Alexandria for work, which gives them the opportunity for big-city income with a country lifestyle. Proximity to both Dulles and Ronald Reagan Washington airports offers domestic and cargo flights, while the Virginia Railway Express lines offer local and Amtrak train services. Prince William County Public Schools is the second-largest school system in Virginia, with 57 elementary, 16 middle, 13 high schools, and three special education schools. Five universities and colleges also call Prince William County land and farms home, including George Mason University and Northern Virginia Community College.
Two National Parks lie within the county, granting Prince William County land and farms a protected natural setting that offers beautiful views and a bountiful natural area to explore. The department of parks and recreation operates over fifty parks, two waterparks, two community centers, six sports complexes, and an ice skating rink—which all amounts to great opportunities for outdoor fun for residents of all ages. After a day spent in the great outdoors, residents can explore the county’s historic downtowns in Bristow, Manassas, and Triangle, or stroll through one of Prince William County’s bountiful producer-only farmers’ markets. Residents can also attend concerts at the 25,000-seat outdoor Jiffy Lube amphitheater in Bristow, or see some live theater at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas.
