Explore The Great Outdoors
If you love the idea of unwinding in the great outdoors like our resident orthodontist David Cole, check out Conway Robinson State Forest and the Manassas National Battlefield Park.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced hiker looking to explore new trails, the Conway Robinson State Forest offers an easy, dog-friendly 3.3-mile trail loop!
Looking for a longer distance to hike, bike, or run? A simple 5-minute drive gets you to Manassas National Battlefield Park where there are more than 40 miles of trails for you to explore, guided tours by park rangers, and a museum to learn about the history of the park.
A Day Out at the Promenade
If you’re more into shops and restaurants, head to the Promenade for a great day of shopping and fun! It’s our clinical assistants’, Lezy Pinedas and Ashley Ugarriza, favorite way to spend the weekend.
With more than 120 shops and restaurants to choose from, there is always something new to check out at the Promenade.
If you’re not a fan of shopping, here are three other activities our staff love to do there:
- Working out at Onelife Fitness (Jyllian Gerrick, Clinical Coordinator)
- Catch a movie at Regal Cinema (Kathi Reed, Treatment Coordinator)
- Grabbing Yobe Frozen Yogurt (Tanya Jovel, Clinical Assistant)
Family Day at The Farm Brewery
Picked by Lorrie Butler (Clinical Assistant), Madeline Snider (Clinical Assistant), and our resident doctor Michael Dunegan, The Farm Brewery is a popular choice among our staff!
This brewery offers plenty of activities to keep adults and kids entertained! Pick from one of their many locally brewed beers, lounge around in their beer garden, enjoy live music, and watch the kids explore the playgrounds and outdoor areas.
