Fun Travel for kids

Assateague LighthouseLast year we gave you . We double checked; those still qualify to remain on the list, but we know you want more!


Wind your way to the top of the recently restored and repainted on Chincoteague Island. Dating to 1867, the current lighthouse is actually the second on the site. The original was built in 1833 and nearly 100 feet shorter; inadequate for the need. The lighthouse is open weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., April through November. Donations are accepted, but there is no longer an admission fee.

Children will love in Harrisonburg, but children who rely on a wheelchair will find joy beyond measure when they are able to swing as the others do! Many of the features at this playground are unique to the area or actually one-of-a-kind. A Dream Come True was conceptualized by a Girl Scout Troop seeking a community service project for their Gold Award. They identified the need for an inclusive, accessible playground where children of all abilities could play together.

Arm yourself with bug spray and a stick to ward off the bugs that kids either love or love to complain about. Then set off on an adventure to seek out .

JT’s Grommet Island Park

is just outside of historic downtown Lexington. Your youngster will love The Play Trail. It’s a special place where children seven and younger will let their imaginations run wild with stumps, digging pits, a mud kitchen, tunnels, a creek, tiny treehouse, and more. For the older kids and the rest of the family, the trails lead to fantastic discoveries like the Giant Chair, the Eye, the Great Oak, and a fun zig-zag bridge through the wetlands.

Learn about the sun, moon, stars and planets every Thursday night at 8 p.m. at the in Chesapeake. Seating is limited; call ahead for reservations even though there is no admission fee.

Take them out to the ball game — minor league baseball, that is. As one of our readers pointed out in 2014’s version of this article, “Do not forget any of Virginia’s 9 minor league baseball teams, 3 Coastal Plain League teams, 3 Ripken League baseball teams, and the Virginia Valley League teams. All of these towns that host baseball teams, you can get tickets for less than $10.” Hat tip to Jonathan!

What are some fun places to travel with kids? | Yahoo Answers

Cozumel- You can swim with dolphins and take rides through jungles, etc... Lots of fun activities. That's the only place outside of the country I have been so far, and I LOVED it!
Ok, apparently my answer sucks. It's out of the country and you can do these activities with your kids... How old are they?
