With so many things to see and do, the state’s slogan may as well be “Virginia is for kids.” In Northern Virginia, there’s something for youngsters of all ages, from historic sites to performing arts and fitness activities.
History-minded youth have Mount Vernon, of course, but railroad and archeology museums attract plenty of interest, too. Budding thespians find energetic performances in the middle of a forest and in a strip mall, while active children get physical on trampolines and on a working farm.
The best-kept secret? Rather than sit on the sidelines, parents find plenty of fun, too.
