Check out the Virginia Safari Park on the way! It's totally awesome.
All three of my kids went off to visit family this summer, and my husband and I were left with nothing to do. We drove to Natural Bridge Virginia and saw the sights there. By far, the most fun was the Safari Park.
We got to feed giraffes! We fed deer, bison, llamas, ostrich, watusi, and all sorts of other animals. We had a BLAST! It was so much fun that we took the kids there when they got back from their vacations.
