Summer Vacation Day Trips Near MD and VA

June 13, 2017

The residents of ROSS’ off-base military apartments will have a blast with their family when they visit these nearby adventures.

School’s out and the kids are home with plenty of pent-up energy ready to be released after spending the last five months being cooped up in a classroom. They’re awaiting fun activities and looking to you for ideas. No need to fret! The residents of ROSS’ off-base military apartments are well equipped with these ideas for fun day trips near our Maryland and Virginia communities.

 

Head to one of these nearby destinations to keep the family entertained and make some lasting memories.

 

Make a Splash at the Beach

There are multiple beaches to choose from but two specific ones come to mind when you’re thinking of entertaining the whole gang. If you want all the fun of the boardwalk, activities like mini-golf and a massive beach, head farther out to the popular Mid-Atlantic attraction, Ocean City, MD. If just the beach and a picnic blanket will do, stay closer to home at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis.

 

Visit Our Local Wildlife

Excite your family with a visit to our local animals. You can head to the Smithsonian National Zoo in Woodley Park, DC, to visit their Giant Panda House, Elephant Trails, and more. If you prefer the animals of the sea, the sharks, fish and other creatures of the ocean can be found at The National Aquarium at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

 

Take a Dive Into Summer Thrills

Whether you’re a fan of rollercoasters, water rides, games or just have a sweet tooth for treats like funnel cake and cotton candy, you’re in luck at any of these amusement parks! Fun times await the oldest and the youngest of the family at nearby Six Flags America in Mitchellville, MD, Kings Dominion in Doswell, VA, or Hershey Park in Hershey, PA.

 

Now that you know how to fill your summer with fun experiences to delight the whole family, head to a community that will keep you and your family pleased all year round. Stop by ROSS’ off-base military apartments for a tour today and ask about our military discount!
