Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with things to do in Virginia with kids, but that’s why I’m here! Roer’s Zoofari is a great place to visit particularly during a pandemic! They have a portion of the zoo where you can walk through, but there is also the option to participate in only the self-drive safari. The walking tour is also outdoors and tickets are available on a reservation-only basis during the COVID-19 pandemic for social distancing purposes.

Make sure to check for discount tickets on sites like Groupon, LivingSocial, and Viator before you go!

You can also read reviews and look at visitors’ photos at Tripadvisor.
