The temperatures are rising, the sun is out for a longer period of time, and now it’s time for the fun to really start!  We’ve put together this list of our favorite family activities to get your family up and energized this spring season!

Cook a spring-themed dinner – Strawberry Spring Salad is a fan favorite in the Fit4Kids gardens!

Go on a scavenger hunt – Use these indoor or outdoor scavenger hunt sheets to make it a family-friendly competition!

Take a Hike – Visit the James River Park System Trails! Our favorite kid-friendly hike is at Pony Pasture!

Visit a Farmer’s Market! Our favorites are Dorey Park Farmers Market, RVA Big Market, and South of the James Farmers Market

Pack a picnic and watch the sunset from Libby Hill Park.

Watch kayakers rip down the James River from the T. Pot. Bridge!

Visit Maymont! See all the spring blooms in season!

Bring your bikes or rent them and explore the Captial Trail!
