Heading to Virginia: Tides Inn Crab Net Kids Program - My Family Travels
New Media Travel

One of our favorite places to go, Tides Inn in Virginia’s Northern Neck reintroduces its kids summer vacation package with unlimited golf, tennis, and daily breakfast

Tides Inn is actually in Irvington, Virginia, along the Chesapeake Bay, and sits on a rounded hill overlooking the Rappahannock River. The belvedere aka/front lawn is a pocketsize croquet course with thudding balls and a few sticky wickets, though a great place for kids to run around and adults to enjoy a crisp glass of wine or cold beer.

Canoes, kayaks and paddleboats bob on the water and complimentary bicycles get most families pedaling into town to the Steamboat Museum, antique shops and a weekly farmers’ market.
