So frequently when I meet with clients, we end up talking about all the wonderful things about Prince William County. We chat about location and convenience to so many places, like D.C. and the beach. We mention the beautiful, upscale neighborhoods, quality schools and excellent youth sports opportunities. And inevitably in those conversations, people share with me their favorite little “gems” — those spots that call to them over and over.
I’ve pulled together some of those PWC gems so that you too can explore these spectacular spots. They range from parks to shopping to playgrounds, but each is worth mentioning. I hope you take advantage of this beautiful fall weather and branch out to find a new favorite spot of your own here in Prince William County.
