While I wanted a nice place to live at, location was the most important feature of any potential apartment or house for me. I had been hoping to get settled into a small house somewhere, but it did not take long for me to realize that this particular desire was not going to be easy to achieve in the area I was interested in. However, there are plenty of apartments for rent in Manassas VA, so I decided to focus my time on looking at these apartment complexes instead of trying to find a small house that is reasonably rated.
There were quite a few complexes, so this did make my search easier. I was able to be a bit pickier on things other than location because of this, and that is how I settled on Palisades at Manassas Park. This complex is not only conveniently located for the places that I go to on a regular basis, but it has so much more going for it too. The location is perfect, and the actual apartment that I have now is definitely better than any others that I have seen in the area.
I also really enjoy the community features that come with living here at Palisades. There is a resort style pool, which is something that I use at least a few times a week. There is bike storage, which is huge for me because I enjoy riding my bike when I have a day off. There is also a fitness center that has both strength training as well as cardio areas in it. There is so much to do here on my downtime that I realized pretty fast that this is definitely better than renting a house. I would not have all these great things to do right outside my front door then!
