Play N' Learn: The Playground Super Store in Chantilly has been a local favorite for Northern Virginia families to play. The giant showroom has many play structures, a couple of trampolines, and air hockey/ foosball tables for kids to have fun. Plus there is a very clean restroom with a changing table. We love that there are now two time slots that require advanced signup online, so it never gets crowded. It's a fun, relaxed atmosphere and great place for a play date meet up. The Chantilly, VA location is convenient to many places in Northern Virginia. Here's some things to know:

There is nothing like a January snowfall to remind us that winter is far from over! And while the charm of the snow can be enchanting, the reality is the cold weather can catch up with the young and old alike and make for a less than comfortable family-friendly day. After you have built your snowman, spent hours sledding and have thrown a few snowballs, it might be time to find some more climate friendly activities for your crew.
And we have tons of options for you! To start, the Kid Trips Northern Virginia book lists many local museums and hidden gems in Northern Virginia as well as Washington DC.

Remodeling or finishing your basement is a great opportunity to have more living space in your home. Because the structure is already there to work with, you just have to decide how you want your basement to look. Do you want a media room, game room, in-home gym, guests room, additional living space, or a mixture of various things? The possibilities are endless and it’s a great way to use an otherwise unused space in your home. The basement we’re going to look at was in a 1960’s home in Arlington, VA that uses the space in various ways with a contemporary style.
