Spring break is finally here and the kids are home for the week. Maybe you’ll take some time to visit with family, entertain guests, or go on a trip. But what if you don’t have any plans? We have some ideas for all ages to have fun at home, or for a quick and affordable getaway!
Need a quick getaway? We don’t blame you.
Go to a Theme Park
Busch Gardens, Hershey Park, and Kings Dominion are only a few hours away. Enjoy a day of rides and games, and if you’re too tired at the end of the day, grab an affordable hotel room for the night.
Sadly, outdoor water parks are closed until summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some wet and wild family fun! Great Wolf Lodge and Massanutten Resort both have indoor water parks open all year. Book a room, and don’t forget to pack your swimsuit!
Weird and Wacky Attractions
Take a mini road trip around Virginia to see our many off-beat attractions like Dinosaur Land, the birthplace of Mr. Peanut, the Route 11 Potato Chip Factory, or other Virginian childhood totems. Visit www.virginia.org/WeirdandWacky/ for more ideas.
Take a trip to Jamestown Settlement or Colonial Williamsburg to experience Virginia’s rich history.
Whether you stay at home or take a quick trip, Spring Break is a great way to relax and spend time with your family.
