After what felt like a never-ending 2020, 2021 is seeming to fly by! Maybe it’s the excitement of getting COVID vaccines and finally being able to imagine post-COVID life going back to normal, or maybe it’s just spring in the air. Either way, we’re all ready for some fun… And fortunately, Spring Break is almost here! Make the most of your spring break with these ideas from Chester Skateland.
Spring Break In and Around RVA
If you’re looking for fun things to do with your family during Spring Break, you’re in luck. There are tons of family activities in Chester and the Richmond area, so pick the ones that fit your family’s interests best and curate your own awesome “staycation” right here in Virginia.
Roller Skate at Chester Skateland
We host a wide variety of weekly skate sessions and other special events here at Chester Skateland, so there’s always something fun going on. We offer skating lessons for all ages and skill levels, and even host exciting special events like our monthly Christian Music Night.
With awesome music, a spacious new skate floor, and all-around good vibes, you can’t pick a better family outing than a trip to the skating rink. Plus, roller skating is a fantastic workout, so you can get your crew off the couch without tipping them off that they’re actually going to be getting some exercise!
Explore Local Parks and Nature
Some of the best things to do in RVA are actually free, like exploring local parks. There are so many cool and unique parks in the area, like the Pony Pasture Rapids Park, where visitors can swim and sunbathe on the river rocks, explore miles of trails, canoe and kayak, run and bike, fish, and check out the local flora and fauna.
Right here in Chester, you can explore the beautiful wetlands of Dutch Gap Conservation Area by hiking, kayaking, or canoeing. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, as this beautiful natural area is home to bald eagles, osprey, herons, and many other species.
Play Tourist Around the RVA
It’s funny how people often don’t explore their own towns until a visitor gives them a reason to play tourist for a day. But why wait? You can create your own tour based on whatever you and your family are interested in, from visiting the Edgar Allen Poe Museum or the American Civil War Museum to the Virginia State Capitol or the Black History Museum of Virginia. Take a canal cruise, scope out the historic architecture in the area, or visit one of our local museums to check out some art.
Whatever you and your family end up doing for Spring Break, we hope you have a blast and make some memories to treasure forever.
