Make plans to hit a theme park. Enjoy the countries of Busch Gardens in Williamsburg or the family roller coaster park of Kings Dominion near Richmond.
Outdoor waterparks are closed until the summer season, except for the indoor Great Wolf Lodge Waterpark in Williamsburg and the Massanutten Resort Water Park!
Get back to nature at Virginia State Parks, voted "America's Best." Enjoy hiking, biking, fishing and wildlife watching this time of year. Give each of the kids their own disposable camera to document their adventure, or do a little research to see if there are geocaching opportunities.
If you and your family love creature-seeking, you'll enjoy adventuring about Virginia's nature centers, zoos and Natural Area Preserves. Meet aquatic life at indoor aquariums, touch pools and in interactive living exhibits.
Children are thrilled to visit the eerie worlds created by dripstone stalactites and stalagmites in Virginia's Caverns. Did you know that some of the caverns were discovered by curious children and their dogs?
This is a great time to enjoy one of Virginia's Beaches. The water might give a refreshing tingle, but you can play beach volleyball, build sand castles, go fishing off a pier and sunbathe. Of course, many hotels offer heated pools so the kids can still get in their waterplay.
This is the most beautiful time of year for a hot-air balloon ride. Choose the northern Shenandoah Valley or Charlottesville in Central Virginia. Cool mornings, gentle breezes and spectacular spring blossoms you can pick from the trees make it a memorable experience.
If your family enjoys Weird & Wacky attractions, Virginia has a complete list of off-beat things to do on your spring break. For example, visit Dinosaur Land, home to more than 50 fiberglass prehistoric creatures — lifesize! Or you might want to visit some of Virginia's Childhood Totems, such as Route 11 Potato Chip Factory or the Birthplace of Mr. Peanut.
Try your piloting skills in an official NASA Shuttle Landing Simulator and visit the Air & Space Center in Hampton. For more flight and space explorations, see Out-of-this-World Vacations.
"History is fun," say the folks at Jamestown Settlement. Did you know that 2007 marked the 400th birthday of our nation's founding by the English who settled in Jamestown in 1607?
Another fun, historical place to visit is Colonial Williamsburg, where you and the kids can pretend you're living in colonial days. The entire town stays in character 24 hours a day.
Dive into Virginia's presidential history in a fun, kid-energized way to learn about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor and Woodrow Wilson.
Spring kicks off the racing season for cars, horses and people!
If your family enjoys country and bluegrass music, why not take a trip along The Crooked Road - Virginia's Heritage Music Trail that takes you from the Birthplace of Country Music in Bristol to the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, with plenty of family- friendly music venues along the way?
