A Veteran’s View on Prince William


Home to the “Crossroads of the Marine Corps”, Prince William has a wealth of military history. You’ll pay homage and thank our military members for their service on this tour honoring U.S. Veterans. Visit historic sites and enticing museums, then eat your way through Occoquan.

Begin your day at the National Museum of the Marine Corps to gain insight into the lives of our nation’s heroes as you follow the Marine story from their founding to the present day. See the new film “We, The Marines” to get an unparalleled view into the experiences of Marines from boot camp through modern warfare training. After, visit the National Memorial Cemetery at Quantico for a private flag-laying ceremony at the graves of veterans whose remains were previously forgotten. Hosted by the Missing in America Project, their mission is to find, identify, and provide full military burial for these now-remembered heroes.

Enjoy a leisurely lunch in Historic Occoquan. Take your group on a culinary journey by sampling the best of the town’s dishes on a progressive meal. Savor parmesan-asiago cheese dip, bite into tilapia bruschetta, and sink your teeth into a preservative-free homemade apple pie. After lunch, take time to explore the charming town, filled with locally owned specialty shops.

Ride over for a tour of Rippon Lodge, a historic home with a stunning view of the Potomac River. During your tour of the home, see the painting of Admiral Black, one of the last people to speak to Amelia Earhart before her disappearance. The home’s original owner was also good friends with then-General George Washington.

Next, let your Civil War guide dressed in his military uniform lead you to Manassas National Battlefield Park. En route to the park, watch the Richard Dreyfuss narrated film, “Manassas: End of Innocence” on your motorcoach. Once on the battlefield, discover the artifacts uncovered from the battlefield and walk the hallowed ground where two major Civil War battles unfolded.

Finish your tour with a delicious dinner where you can relax and reminisce. Crack open fresh crabs at Out of the Blue or eat heartily at Glory Days Grille, a local favorite.
