Families can find lots of fun in metro Richmond at these family friendly attractions and activities.
Enjoy a trip to Maymont Park with its Nature Center, gardens and Children's Farm. The new Children's Garden at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens is an interactive experience for children with a large tree house, an international village and plenty of water play in the summer.
Henricus Historical Park — the second successful English city in the New World — showcases the beginnings of Virginia with costumed reenactors demonstrating what life was like during the time of Pocahontas up to the colonial era.
What kid can't resist the excitement at Kings Dominion, home to lifesize Hanna-Barbera and Nickelodeon® characters such as Sponge Bob, the Rugrats, Dora the Explorer, Blue, Jimmy Neutron and Scooby-Doo! Even the littlest ones in the family become big thrill seekers at PKD!
And just in case it rains, there's plenty to do indoors, too: the Science Museum of Virginia and its next door neighbor the Children's Museum of Richmond; and the award-winning Pamplin Historical Park & the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier in Petersburg, just 40 minutes south of Richmond.
