Busch Gardens Williamsburg
We just returned from our first-ever trip to Busch Gardens Williamsburg. It was a little over two-hour drive from DC, and my kids managed to stay from opening till closing, so it was a long day! As much as we like thrill rides, I was very eager to see the other parts of the park I’d heard about–the food, the animals, and the non-ride attractions–and we really enjoyed it.
Busch Gardens VA had plenty of family fun, and because my kids are older, we didn’t visit Sesame Street Forest of Fun, which I know is a highlight for those with little ones. I wanted to see a few shows, because they look great, but the kids wanted to do rides instead. Maybe next time! There’s also a big water park called Water Country USA, so there’s plenty to do.
If you plan to visit more than once, buy a 2-Park Fun Card for just $97, which will give you unlimited visits to both Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA through September 1st.
Connect with Busch Gardens VA this summer to hear about concerts, the Food & Wine Festival, and more during their 99 Days of Summer:
