The Prince William County website has a lot of valuable information on the area.  The Prince William County Park Authority has a lot to offer.  There is a water park, Waterworks, at the Andrew Leitch Park.  The Dale City Recreation Center is also very close, located on Minnieville Rd., off Dale Blvd.

 In addition, Skatequest, the ice skating rink, is less than a mile from the water park.  And there are a lot more privately owned dance, soccer, Tae Kwon Do, swimming, etc. in the area.

 Potomac Mills is only 12 minutes away.  It is a huge outlet/shopping mall and a brand new AMC Theater.

How to get home from the Pentagon

 

How I get home depends on the time I can leave work

Depart 1200 - 1530L   Use PLAN B or C

Depart 1530 - 1745L   Use PLAN A

Depart 1745 - 2000L   Use PLAN B

Depart 2000 - 2230L   Use PLAN C

Other times                   Use PLAN D

 

PLAN A (slug to Horner Rd and then drive home)

            Advantages:                  Easy ride home

                                                Horner Rd line moves the quickest

            Disadvantages:  Finding a ride gets tough after 1745L since HOV opens at 1800L

 

PLAN B (take the bus to Horner Rd and then drive home)

Advantages:                  The last PRTC bus leaves the Pentagon at 2000L

                                    Allows you to work hot taskers which come late in the day

                                    Still allows you to slug into work

Disadvantages:  Might have to wait 15 minutes for next bus

 

PLAN C (ride subway to Springfield, bus from Metro Station to Horner Rd and drive home)

            Advantages:                  At least you are not getting a hotel room

            Disadvantages: 

 

PLAN D (ride subway to Springfield and talk real sweet to your spouse)

            Advantages:                  The doghouse is better than the bus stop curve
