It's the last week in August and for many of us, the last week we'll have our kids home from school. So, what's on the agenda around the state? What can we do as a family and on our own to have a little down time before we dive into the fall months?
Here are a few of my picks:
- Natural Bridge Guided Walks - have a low-key day outdoors and enjoy the fall weather and the beauty of the natural bridge with your family with these free guided tours for those who are park pass holders. This is the last weekend for the guided tours.
US 11 & 30 , 15 Appledore Lane, Natural Bridge, VA 24578
- Hang out in Nellysford and Wrap up the Virginia Craft Brewing month at Wild Wolf Brewing 8/29 & 8/30 (7:30-10:30pm) or attend the "Romp, Stomp & Chomp" event at the Wintergreen Winery
Wild Wolf Brewing - 2461 Rockfish Valley Highway ~ Wintergreen Winery 462
Winery Lane - both in Nellysford 22958
- 150th Anniversary of Second Manassas (Bull Run) - Virginia history is part of the curriculum in our schools, so why not expand on that with a real life demonstration by bringing your kids to this event which runs through the weekend. ((9/28-(9/2)
6511 Sudley Road, Manassas, VA 20109
- The Virginia Living Museum in Newport News has discounted admission due to the fact they were flooded out last week in the storms and had to close the lower level. But they are open for the Labor Day weekend and have several fun exhibits open to the public including their fantastic robotic roaring dinosaurs exhibit and Virginia skies planetarium show, both which close after the Labor day weekend.
524 J. Clyde Morris Blvd, Newport News, VA 23601
- Virginia Beach is having a fantastic weekend music festival - The Verizon Wireless American Musica Festival this coming Labor Day Weekend - one of the largest on the east coast. It will have headliners like Train, O.A.R and Cheap Trick among others. It should make for a great weekend at the beach. Tickets are only $35
Various stages, Virginia Beach Oceanfront
What are your plans for the Labor Day weekend? Will you get out an about or will you stick close to home?
