1.) Get ready for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Washington, D.C.! Partake in a marathon or half-marathon and run, baby, run! Not only will you get that adrenaline pumping and burn those annoying calories – you can use this as an opportunity to join a fundraising team for a charity of your choice. Further perks for runners include discounts on tickets to basketball championships and D.C. restaurants. After racing, cool off at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert and listen to some live tunes performed by the hottest rockers.

2.) If you’re a book aficionado, you should check out NOVA Teen Book Festival in Arlington, Virginia! Browse the extensive collection of books, connect with your favorite authors (you might even get an autograph), chat with other teen readers, play games, and attend writing workshops led by well-known authors, and engage in intriguing discussion panels.

3.) Go see the Big Apple Circus, which is coming to the National Harbor in Washington, D.C.! The Big Apple, which provides the “intimacy and artistry associated with the European one ring circus,” has many great acts that take place under their Big Top (yes, a real tent). There are acrobats, flying trapeze artists, contortionists, jugglers, and rescued animals (such as horses, dogs, and farm critters) that do tricks. The circus also includes performances by Nick Wallenda, who holds 10 world records for his incredible feats upon the high wire.

Explore Church Hill (a pretty town located in Richmond, Virginia) and visit WPA Bakery Liberty Public House, Nile, Union Market, Dutch & Company, Sub Rosa Bakery, Proper Pie, and The Hill Café. You’ll also get to learn about Church Hill’s interesting past.

5.) Have a blast at the Star Party and Laser Light Shows at The Virginia Living Museum in Newport News, Virginia! Wait until it’s dark outside and grab a telescope so you can admire the stars that light up the sky – try to name all of the constellations you find. Who knows, maybe you’ll be see a shooting star and make a wish. Then, enjoy a planetarium program, state-of-the-art laser shows, and music. End the evening right with a late night snack at the Wild Side Café.
