*We hope you’ll find some helpful tips to plan the ultimate summer family vacation at Busch Gardens VA and Water Country USA. *

A trip to **Busch Gardens VA** was already on our family bucket list. It’s a popular family destination for New Yorkers, whether traveling by car or by plane. So when we had the chance to experience **Water Country USA** (just down the road from Busch Gardens), we knew it would be a memorable way to mark the official kick-off to summer!

After a fun vacation, full of whipping down water slides like an exploding-mom-cannon, hearing chants of “ONE MORE TIME!” on repeat, and waiting at the bottom of rides for my super-enthusiastic kiddos, we have a few helpful tips to share.

**UNLEASH YOUR INNER CHILD: **When** **my kids immediately expressed their love for the Nitro Racer freeway, I’ll never forget the looks on their faces as I hightailed it up the line and then came sliding down like an out-of-control belly-down-mom-torpedo. And the kids continue to talk about the funny expressions and noises that their dad made while rafting together down the adrenaline-packed rides (“He was more scared than we were!!!”). In our experience, the kiddos love to see their parents let loose and dive head first into fun. While many of the rides can accommodate for all four of us, there were plenty of times when my husband and I playfully argued about who could go first. Bring your inner child; the rides are that much fun!

**Map Out a Plan**: With a ton of thrilling rides and attractions, it’s great to have a plan. Our do-not-miss favorites include Big Daddy Falls, Aquazoid, Hubba Hubba Highway, Colossal Curl, Nitro Racer and more.

Our kids are on the cusp of being tall enough for many of the thrilling rides while still appreciating the kid-friendly attractions for ages nine and younger. If you have little ones, there’s plenty of areas designed for their fun at Kritter Korral, H20 UFO, Cow-A-Bunga, and many others.

**GO FOR THE QUICK QUEUE: **The option of purchasing Quick Queue will grant you access to short lines and even shorter walks to the top of a few rides. Although your day will certainly still be a blast sans Quick Queue, the passes spit our kids out of the bottom of their favorite rides faster than we could have imagined.

**DINE IT: ** With a bunch of delicious dining options, our group consensus led us to Tex-Mex at Hot Spots Cafe. The kiddos went for chicken tacos, while my husband and I filled up on salads. The kids will never let a promised vacation-treat be missed, and there are so many fun options for dessert, other than what I assumed they’d go for (ice cream!). Also, don’t forget to purchase a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated.

**RENT A CABANA: **Elevate your park experience with your own private shaded area to settle in, store your belongings, hydrate and relax. A cabana rental comes with a private attendant, locker rental, two drinks per person and even towels to take home as souvenirs. Even though the park is packed with ample loungers and locker rentals, there’s nothing like having a central (and private!) VIP spot to rest sun-tired bodies after the important work of splish-splashing down water slides.

**GRAB A SOUVENIR: **While we’re big on choosing experiences over things, allowing the kids to select a small souvenir is a fun way to add to the vacation memories. In addition to every possible water park necessity, all of the shops are filled with fun trinkets galore. The kids each chose a goodie from Wipeout Gifts and Apparel. This is also the spot to grab a new suit and cover-up if you need one! They’ve got you styled with options from Roxy, Quicksilver, Salt Life, and more.

**Get in the Picture**: Special vacation memories quickly become an important part of our collective family story. And while I’m often on the other side of the lens (like a lot of parents), family photos are important! Our trip to Williamsburg VA is certainly one for the memory books. We can’t wait to return!

That looks like so much fun! My family loves to spend the day at water parks. It’s so refreshing to hit the pool and woosh down all the slides.

I love love love the beach. I wish I was close to one all summer. Catching waves, body surfing.

I’m looking forward to spending time with my kids on the beach this summer. Ones loves the water and one lives the sand.

Sounds like my kiddos too, Alexis!

This places sounds incredible! Amazing for kids… and adults!!!

That looks like so much fun. My family has always loved visiting water parks together.

I di not think of a road trip from NY but it could be a fun road trip. My kids love waterparks so this would be a great destination and also check out Busch Gardens.

It was so much fun! We flew in and it was the shortest flight ever from NYC which was perfect.

I am looking forward to backyard get togethers with friends and family. I also am looking forward to having my grandsons spend time with me.

Having some fun here and cooling off would be great. I would definitely try to get on all of the slides and rides! The quick queue would be a good option.

Thanks for the recap – we’re still trying to figure out plans for an August getaway and this would be perfect!

You had me a cabana rental! Can I chill their while my family explores the park?!

Where we live it has been so hot & humid that it gets hard to breathe at times! I would love to release my inner child with a lot of water fun!

Thank you so much for the opportunity!!

We’re staying close to home this summer, and since we just redid our deck last year and got a beautiful new set of patio furniture and grill this year, I think we’ll be spending a lot of time at home. I do want to do some day trips with my girls, too – there are a couple of Japanese festivals not far from us, and of course we have some great hiking nearby. I’m really wanting to go to the Indiana Dunes just a short distance from us and to one or more of our state parks for hiking.

Summers are when we get to catch up on some of our grandchildren. We look forward to visiting our children. The kids ae so busy with work and raising our grandchildren we make it easier by spending time with them. Traveling to another state to see a couple and doing weekend trips to visit. Which always results in taking a kido home with us for a week or two!

I am looking to spend time with my kids in the beach or the sand. My babies are water babies.

Summer to me is going somewhere you don’t usually go.Somewhere new and different, doing new things rather than doing your daily activities.Summer is the time to have fun and go to the beach, pool,hang out with friends or travel around with family.Whether its just walking my dog or even visiting the zoo, at least I’m doing something to start off or even finish summer.

I look forward to spending time with family.

We are looking forward to a family trip to N. California!

I’m looking forward to our cruise!

my daughter coming home from overseas

I’m looking forward to doing more traveling. 🙂

A trip to a water park is always a fun activity for my family. My inner child resurfaces the moment I set foot inside the park.I love water slides, but not the extreme ones where you spend a few seconds inside a tunnel. I am slightly claustrophobic so that won’t be my kind of jam.

I’m looking forward to concerts the most!

We love amusement parks and water parks!! We look forwarding to lots of swimming whether it be in a pool, a lake or tubing in a river!

my grandson is hone for the summer after graduating with honors from college. he’ll attend grad school in another state in September so I look forward to preparing all his favorite foods and spending time telling him about our family history.

Looking forward to gardening in our garden (and getting a tan!), and ATVing here in the mountains of southern WV!

We aren’t planning on going on a vacation but just doing things locally like going fishing, going to the movies and going swimming.

That looks awesome! I am looking forward to pool time with my kids.

Looking forward to California Sisters’ trip!

The best part of summer for me is the fresh flowers in my yard, Dahlberg Daisies to be exact! I love all flowers, but these are special to me! I love ’em!!

A few years back, I discovered some Dahlberg Daisies (Thymophylla tenuiloba) at my local nursery, and it was love at first sight… I mean with their feathery foliage and cheerful yellow flowers, whats not to love? They give me a “happy-place” feeling!

I planted them as a border in my front yard because it super sunny out there, and they did very well until wet summer weather set it, and they all died back. I thought for sure they would all die… but no it wasn’t the end of these little plants, – each spring, after a bit of winter rain, seedlings of Dahlberg Daisies pop up around my front yard, thriving with absolutely no attention from me at all until summer sets in once again.

Nothing. for summer to be Over

We had 2 Scout trips and a family reunion on our summer to-do list, and only the reunion is left to attend. Crazy Horse monument is terrific, but the little one just couldn’t make it the last of the hike to the arm. The old fashioned train trip was fun for everyone, and who knew there was an alligator rescue/farm in Colorado!

I’m looking forward to my granddaughter coming to visit. She is going to be 7 really soon!

This water slide was one of the most relaxing water sides I have ever been on!

Busch Gardens VA looks like a great place to take the family. I think the whole family would love to experience Water Country USA, especially on a real hot day. The giant inner tubes have my inner child wanting to go!
