Fun things to do in ABINGDON

If you hear the words “I’m bored”, then you’re clearly not in Virginia! Whatever they LOVE to do, you will find it here.

You will find beaches, mountains, incredible wilderness, and some of the oldest towns in the entire country…you ready?

Don't forget about those dinosaurs in Virginia with Dinosaur Land, or true hair raising thrills with Kings Dominion.  Kids can cool down at MANY water parks like Splashdown, and the retro Water Country USA.  Animals? Of course they have those! Virginia Safari Park is the ONLY drive through zoo in the state, and they have zoos galore.

Hit the water with Bay Country Kayaking, or why not through a bit of learning fun in there with museums like Virginia Air and Space Center and the fascinating Frontier Culture Museum.

And of course, the incredible wilderness! See it from new heights with Vertical Rock Climbing, or explore the state parks like Pocahontas State Park packed with incredible activities.  Did we mention you can also trek with Llamas? Check out Twincreeks Llama Trekking! 

There are so many fun things to do in Virginia, chances are you will be extending your family days out for much longer adventures! Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
