Every year, tons of families visit Virginia and surrounding areas (such as Washington, DC) for vacation. In Fairfax County, we welcome everyone to enjoy our slice of the world - we are one of the best Virginia vacation spots for families. While on vacation, it is often a challenge to find attractions that everyone will enjoy. Fortunately, we're ready for that. From fun and interactive displays at the kid-friendly educational center at George Washington's Mount Vernon to the fastest jet in the world at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center, and even to outdoor performing arts theaters built JUST for kids, it won't just be your kids saying "Best Trip Ever!"
Aside from the diverse family attractions, you can enjoy numerous outdoor adventures at our spacious parks and lakes, kick back at a music or theater venue that is showing a family-friendly performance, get competitive at a laser tag course or dust off those ice skates for a lap around the rink. Here are some ideas to get you started.
