Zoos and Aquariums

Fairfax County has a number of meaningful teaching opportunities for your children in the form of some really fascinating and educational attractions. (Check out a list of them here.) But, we know - sometimes kids just want to have fun and let the energy out.

Luckily, many spots in Northern Virginia were designed with energetic kids in mind. From themed miniature golf courses to IMAX theaters and flight simulators, to paint-your-own pottery and theatre workshops - not to mention the bowling lanes, water parks, laser tag and ice skating rinks - your kids will have a blast! So much so, that they may even crash early in your affordable Fairfax hotel, giving you that coveted time to enjoy a spa package or wine bar!  

Better get to planning - we've compiled some of the best local spots to get your game on while you're here on vacation.
