Virginia is a kid's playground!

From parks (both natural and amusement) to education (history, arts and sciences), your children (and you too!) will have a blast this fall as you take in the scenery along the way.

The family will have all kinds of fun in the Roanoke Valley in Virginia's Blue Ridge.  With an outstanding selection of museums, attractions, events, and outdoor activities, the entire family will be excited about getting to spend a Blue Ridge Day together!

The beauty we can’t hide it - it surrounds us, consumes us - especially during the fall season. Our valley location provides viewing for “leaf peepers" from the highest peaks of Skyline Drive to the lower banks along the Shenandoah River.

Mountain explorations are especially refreshing in the fall. Take the scenic drive of Shenandoah National Park, but then park the car and become one with the sights, sounds and beauty of the mountains.

With the summer season coming to a close, we set our sights on what may be the best time of year to make a visit to Virginia Beach. With perfect weather and smaller crowds, there may be no better time to explore the diverse outdoor landscape of the coastal city.
