“Wood” ya know you’re a stone’s throw from D.C.?

Woodbridge is a far-flung suburb of Washington, D.C. Located in Prince William County, the area is known for more than just its proximity to the nation’s capital. It’s also home to impressive forms of plant and animal life, as well as one of the largest outlet malls in the country. It’s a family-friendly area that provides locals with the comfort of community and the excitement of recreation—and that means booking a Woodbridge vacation rental is a very good idea if you’re seeking a nice balance of the 2 yourself.

Shop ‘til you drop, float on the boat

First stop, Potomac Mills Mall. The area’s epic outlet center was once considered the top visitor destination in the state. If you’re more of a nature traveler, join the guided bird watching tour at Julie J. Metz Neabsco Creek Wetlands Preserve (bring your boots!). A relaxed picnic and game of mini golf at Lake Ridge Park and Marina could be what you need to wind down. Of course, the beauty of booking a Woodbridge vacation rental is that you’re near the District. Head to Leesylvania State Park and join the Potomac River Blockade Boat Tour for an epic look at the area’s historic sites.

Woodbridge has it all, from land to water

The oldest house in Prince William County, Rippon Lodge, is a Woodbridge gem dating from 1747. Today, this former tobacco plantation is a restored home open to visitors from May through October. Equally historic is Leesylvania State Park, which was home to the state’s prominent political Lee family. The National Museum of the Marine Corps is just a few miles south of Woodbridge, and it’s worth the short trek to experience the impressive exhibits. With the family? Check out the slides, obstacles, and cozy cabanas at Waterworks Waterpark.

Scorching summers and wicked winters in Woodbridge

It rains in the spring. Winter can be tricky with its snow and ice. The sun feels like a blanket during summer. Fall offers that pleasantly brisk chill in the air. Simply put, booking a Woodbridge vacation rental at any time of year should give you exactly what you'd expect of the season. If you’re more of a heat fiend, you’ll appreciate the humidity that summer brings—and if you’re hoping to encounter one of those famous annual east coast snowstorms, you might get lucky in winter. Layers are highly recommended.

Totally ‘gram-worthy scenery and wildlife

You can’t escape your Woodbridge vacation rental without encountering some serious scenery—the type that’s truly ‘gram-worthy. The Metz Wetland Bank is home to all manner of fantastic wildlife. You won’t know where to look as the wood ducks float by, the hawks soar overhead, and the rivers sweep against the banks. Nestled by the Potomac and Occoquan Rivers, the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a woodsy, marshy wonderland of meadows, plants, and birds. It opens at 7 sharp, so bring your binoculars in the summer to view the breathtaking skies.
