Family Fun

Alexandria’s blend of educational sites, outdoor fun and kid-friendly restaurants and boutiques make it ideal for family vacations:

  • Imaginations run wild at the Alexandria Archaeology Museum, where kids can literally dig into the past
  • The Kids’ Scavenger Hunt crosses the city with maps and clues to learn about George Washington and other patriots
  • "Where Main Street Still Exists," the Del Ray neighborhood  welcomes kids with family-friendly dining and events
  • Creative minds get inspired at Torpedo Factory Art Center, a historic building that today serves as studio space for 80+ working artists
  • Adventurous groups of all ages hit Shadowland for ultimate laser tag or Cameron Run Regional Park for mini golf, a water park, batting cages and more.

A bonus? The city’s walkable neighborhoods, bike rentals and river boat rides turn any activity into an opportunity to learn and explore!
