"Kid-Friendly Lynchburg, Virginia"

Sitting in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, historic Lynchburg, Virginia is a surprisingly fun place for families to spend a couple of days. There are numerous bike paths and green spaces criss-crossing the city, and one of my favorite children's museums in the US is right downtown so that families still have plenty to do indoors if the weather turns rainy or cold.

1. Lynchburg Museum
2. Amazement Square
3. Rise Up Climbing
