Day 1

Begin your tour at Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre. Once the center for conducting business in Prince William County, Brentsville served as the center of community life for over 70 years in the 1800’s. During your visit, you will be led through the holiday traditions of multiple periods from the mid-19th to early 20th centuries as you tour the numerous buildings on-site. Discover how a typical farm family would have celebrated the holiday season by making historical cinnamon ornaments to take home with you.

Next, enjoy a holiday-themed lunch at Bristow Manor Golf Club, while carolers or musicians entertain you with songs of the season. This colonial revival manor home was built in the 1800’s and provides an impeccable view of the rolling countryside and adjacent golf course.

Now that your travelers are thirsty for more holiday fun, stop at MurLarkey Distilled Spirits for a holiday season cocktail tasting and tour. Unaged and aged distilled spirits are made, stored, bottled, and shipped right on-site. Their resident mixologists will show you how to make some holiday favorites to spice up your next get-together, family event, or relaxing night at home.

The sound of wood crackling on an outdoor campfire is a wonderful holiday experience. Add in s’mores and warm apple cider and you’re ready for the holidays at Ben Lomond Historic Site. Enjoy a guided tour of this 18th-century home, once used as a field hospital during the Civil War.

Finish your day with a drive through two and a half miles of festive light displays at the Bull Run Festival of Lights. Transport yourself back to your childhood, glaring in awe out the window, and enjoy the magical glow of the twinkling lights overhead. If you want to stretch your legs, stop at the Holiday Village to pick up some tasty treats, take your picture with Santa, and warm up by the fire pits.
