A Mommy & Daughter Weekend

A Mommy & Daughter Weekend

Prince William & Manassas is full of unique shopping destinations, brunch spots, and small towns that are perfect for making long-lasting memories. It is the perfect place for you and your daughter to get away from the stress of everyday life and enjoy a weekend together talking, laughing, and building your relationship.  Below is an itinerary full of wonderful ideas for a mother daughter weekend.

Day 1:

One of the best ways to strengthen your bond is to explore a new place together. If you are an adventurous pair, then go for a hike through the beautiful Bull Run Mountains. Not so adventurous? Go for a nature walk through Prince William Forest Park for a more relaxing, outdoor experience. Discovering the beauty of the outdoors together is a great memory for mothers and daughters. If you really want to make some memories, take along a camera and capture your moments in pictures. Don’t forget to take a few selfies!

After becoming one with nature, it’s time for some retail therapy. Occoquan is a town that will remind you of Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls. Unique shops, small town charm, and a town gazebo will have you both feeling like Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. The unique shops in Occoquan are perfect for finding one of a kind objects that will forever remind you of your mother-daughter time. You don’t only have to shop for yourselves! Spend some time searching for the perfect gifts for your family members.

Occoquan is the perfect place to shop, but it is also a great place to dine! Enjoy small plates and great appetizers at Bottle Stop or appreciate a waterfront view at Madigan’s. Either one of these options is the perfect end to the day!


Day 2:

What’s a mother/daughter weekend without brunch! Malone’s is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Manassas. The restaurant resides in an old church making the experience one of a kind. Malone’s isn’t the only brunch option in Prince William & Manassas. Read our blog about where to brunch in Prince William & Manassas to discover the perfect brunch spot!
