Yes, Spring Break has finally come! At this point in the year your kids are dying to get out of their regular school routine. I know for me I do need the break of getting up super early, making lunches, homework and overall running like a chicken with my head off. But if you’re like me then you know you can have mixed feelings about having the kiddos home, because they just might drive you crazy. I have found quite a few places that are offering fun things to do in an around Hampton Roads! Hey, we just might run into each other!

We got Theme Parks in our backyard!

Yes, the park is officially open. But as many Hampton Road residents know, Busch Gardens is open for a few weeks around Spring Break. This is an excellent time to visit before the busy season starts.

So many new attractions will be coming but so much you will be able to enjoy the park! Also, take advantage if you have little ones age 3-5 for their preschool pass.
