We promise, the kids will not complain when you mention you are going to Busch Gardens, located in Williamsburg. This amusement park has it all – shows, rides, concerts, after dark entertainment, kid friendly attractions for the smaller adventurers (if you've got young ones, head on over to the Sesame Street Forest of Fun!), animal shows, and a complete water park – Water Country USA. The best part? Everyone will be wiped out after the day and ready for bed; no fights over who gets to stay up late.
