One of our favorite places in the world to take Noah for some family fun is Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. It is about a 5 hour drive from this area, but after driving to Florida twice, it is a piece of cake. We make sure to stop 2-3 times on the way down for needed leg stretching and bathroom breaks (especially since Noah has to see every bathroom apparently in the continental U.S.)
For 2014 there is much on the line up to plan a great family trip, including the Food & Wine Festival (May 23-June 29), the opening of London Rocks, revamping of The Land of the Dragons. The costs are low, Busch Gardens is very family oriented, and has a program for kids with special needs. Plus, this is an ideal setting for both thrill ride junkies, and those who prefer to just enjoy the ambiance, and perhaps some not so thrilling attractions. Busch Gardens is incredibly clean, friendly and beautifully landscaped. Fully deserving of the title America’s Most Beautiful Park for the past 23 years.
