Historic Heart with a Modern Beat–Small Town Charm with Urban Convenience

MANASSAS,VA — In the wake of unprecedented economic growth in Northern Virginia, the City of Manassas proudly ushers in a new renaissance era with the launch of its “Move to Manassas” campaign, the City’s latest call-to-action highlighting the broad expanse of benefits the jurisdiction offers.

With support from City Manager Pat Pate, the City’s Office of Economic Development launched their new Move to Manassas website on Thursday to kickstart a multi-channel campaign focused on the community’s unique lifestyles which embodies expansive economic development, meaningful civic engagement and a vibrant thriving job market.

“The City’s slogan, Historic Heart. Modern Beat. is the rhythm of the community and our authentic Historic Downtown,” said Mr. Pate. The City’s rich history began after the Civil War where the junction railroad made Manassas a household name. Now more than 150 years later, Manassas is proudly establishing itself as one of the largest and most active employment hubs for technology and advanced manufacturing in the country.”

From stately brick colonials and luxury townhouses to modern, amenity-rich condos, Manassas offers residential options to match any lifestyle. Just minutes from downtown D.C., the City of Manassas is ideal for young professionals and families. The region’s network of road, rail and flight options link Manassas to virtually every possible worldwide destination. At the heart of the community, the City offers the convergence of small-town charm and city living where residents can easily walk to restaurants for a late dinner, linger at a coffee shop or raise a glass at a local pub. Historic Downtown boasts outdoor dining, shopping, weekly farmers’ markets, special events and cultural hotspots without the hustle or expense of a large city.

All that and more is now immediately available at www.movetomanassas.org, or better yet, take a quick trip out Interstate 66 and see for yourself.
