In our last article, we gave some good reasons to hate Haymarket, Virginia. This week, we tackle two other areas in Western Prince William County – Gainesville and Bristow, Virginia.
Gainesville and Bristow are no place for hard-working, upstanding citizens. These communities offer far too many things to do with your leisure time, and relaxing just isn’t for us. Leisure activities mean one thing – you’ve got too much time on your hands. If you despise leisure time, we’re sure you’ll be nodding your head at each of our reasons to hate this area. While it was hard to narrow this list down to just four, reluctantly we did. Here’s why it might be easy for you to loathe Gainesville and Bristow, Virginia.
- Live music disgusts you. Maybe you think all dancing and revelry should be illegal. So do we! That’s why having access to world-class music acts right in our backyard makes us cringe. Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, VA brings all the big country, rock and pop bands to the heart of Virginia, polluting the air with the noise of music and laughter. We can’t bear it.
- Teeing off isn’t your cup of tea. Award winning golf with a serene view of the lake? Sounds pretty boring to us! Virginia Oaks Golf Club in Gainesville is one of the best reasons to move elsewhere. You know how rowdy golfers can get, and you just don’t need those types of hooligans in your backyard. Golf can even be an all-day affair there, with on-site dining at the Virginia Oaks Grille. And since this place is such a picturesque wedding location, if you live nearby you’re always going to be picking rice out of your hair when you have no excuse to miss your friends’ and relatives’ special day. Great golf. Who needs it?
- Convenient shopping is the worst. Virginia Gateway and the Promenade at Virginia Gateway have so many options, it’s unfair to make people decide where to go first. With everything from designer clothing, jewelry and shoes to a fun candy shop and a movie theater, you can pretty much kiss your paycheck goodbye. This shopping center with virtually everything you could want or need is located far too conveniently at the intersection of I-66 and Route 29, so you can access it from pretty much anywhere in the county.
- Delicious restaurants make you feel insecure in the kitchen. With all of this pressure from Pinterest and The Food Network to be an amazing cook, who needs great local restaurants showing you up, too? Virginia Gateway and the Promenade at Virginia Gateway have tons of dining options with a flavor for every mood. With fun and delicious options like Nando’s Peri-Peri, Smashburger and Mod Pizza, who’s going to want our burned grilled cheese sandwiches now?
Once again, congratulations. You’ve busted us with some tongue-in-cheek commentary on why it’s awesome to live in Gainesville and Bristow. We don’t really hate the area. Who could, with all these amenities? With so many leisure time activities, Gainesville and Bristow are pretty great. Music, golf, shopping and eating are some of our favorite things to do, and you can do all of them in abundance in this area — honestly!
