NoVA Fun Series

The NoVA Fun series is a growing compilation of budget-friendly and family-friendly activities in the Northern Virginia and D.C. Metro area. If you have suggestions for the list, feel free to leave a comment below or contact me at mrfrugalee@gmail.com.

I am working on creating a separate blog post for each activity and adding additional activities to the list. The first post in the NoVA Fun Series will be Burke Lake Park in Fairfax Station, VA.
