Things to do for Spring Break
We made it to Friday...spring break is here!! Many families and children are excited about spring break next week in Woodbridge, VA and the surrounding area. Living so close to Washington DC offers a lot of different activities and places for our children to visit during this break from school. If you decide to avoid the beaches next week and looking for things close to home to keep your children entertained this is the blog for you. For this week’s Friday Fives, here is a list of five possibilities for spring break destinations for families in NOVA and how to keep your family entertained.
1. Indoor Water Park
Massanutten Resort Water Park - 1200 Adventure Drive Massanutten, VA 22840 – Indoor water park in McGaheysville. Massanutten is approximately three hours away from the Washington DC area. Many parks and neighborhood swimming pools are closed in the area, so check out the indoor pool at Great Wolf Lodge Waterpark. In addition to spring fun, Massanutten is a great place to return during the winter months.
We are surrounded by history. Visit the Jamestown Settlement, Colonial Williamsburg, or Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. All these areas or great places to visit with your children as they will bring the history of their school books to life.
Living so close to Washington DC, there are so many Smithsonian museums that are available, but here are some recommendations for other museums and places to go for spring break that are not usually spoken about:
Autobahn Indoor Speedway – 8340 Sudley Road, Manassas, VA
This is for speed-lovers. The European style indoor go-karting will be the highlight of your children’s spring break.
Great Falls Park - 9200 Old Dominion Drive, Great Falls, VA 22102
Did you know we have waterfalls in Northern Virginia? It’s a great place to bring your digital camera and take pictures of your children enjoying the water. It’s also a great place for a hike. It's also a great place to bring lunch for the family to enjoy. Did you know you can rock climb, do a rapid water run, and more. There are three dramatic waterfalls in the park. If you and your family visit the Great Falls Park, make a stop at Riverbend Regional Park (8700 Potomac Hills Street), Great Falls, VA 22066. It is a wonderful place to stop to see the spring bluebells.
