Rainy Days in Hampton Roads

Weather in Hampton Roads is unpredictable, but when we know it's going to rain, we head to one of these places.  This list is long, but scroll through to find something to do this week! **All of these are open as of Feb. 17, 2021. Please follow Covid procedures. 
Go try a free class at My Gym. The first class is always free and they run classes for different age groups all throughout the week. They offer classes in gymnastics, art, stem, dance, sports, and more. There are locations in Virginia Beach and Newport News. 

The Virginia Air and Space Museum just reopened with their brand new Space Explorer Gallery as well as renovations to their Imax theater. One thing I love about here is that Imax movies are included in your ticket price. Book your tickets in advance and pick a movie time. There is also a small play area downstairs for kids. 

Odu's Barry Art Museum is free to visit and no advance tickets are needed. 

Check our daily event calendar to see if Ikea is having an event for kids. If so, they are free and will keep kids busy while you browse. 
If it is a Monday, Cova Brewing offers free mini muffins, juice, and a craft to your kids when you buy a beverage. Check out the details and head out there! 

Glow Golf currently has two locations, and both are indoors. Go during the day and you're likely to be the only ones there, which is perfect for social distancing. 

The Military Aviation Museum is mostly indoors, with multiple buildings that you can walk or drive to. 
Book a reservation to the Hampton History Museum and check out their exhibits about local history. Our favorite room was the replica of the Native American Longhouse.

Clearly we need skating practice, and Haygood Skating Rink is a great place to get it. They are open with limited capacity, although the playground is still closed.
Both of Funville's locations are open with limited capacity. It's best to book in advance, as tickets are for specific time slots. 

Jump! Trampoline Park is open, and their Jumping Beans program is just for ages 6 and under. 
The Pink Roller is open for very affordable private rentals. Check out the details and then call for bookings of up to ten people. 
Spend the night at Great Wolf Lodge to take advantage of all they have to offer. They have deals during the week which make it more affordable and they also offer day passes. 
Cinema Cafe has reopened with distancing. Support this local chain and grab lunch or dinner while checking out one of their $3 classic movies. 

Right now thanks to sponsor PNC, MOCA is free. With free parking and free admission, this is the time to check it out. 

We love Chrysler Museum and visit a few times a year. Right now the Tickle My Ears program is virtual, and the Wonder Studio is closed, but you can still reserve a free ticket and visit the museum. 
The third floor of Nauticus is open, and right now they have a new exhibit about plastic in the oceans. We haven't been to the brand new exhibit yet, but we love Nauticus in general. 

Get some energy out at The Bounce House in Virginia Beach. Pay once and get in free all week. 
Sky Zone offers toddler times several times a week during the morning.
While only one building at the Virginia Aquarium is open, it is a great place to get some energy out. 
With locations in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, The Little Gym offers classes starting with babies and going all the way to teens.
