Children's Activities

Northampton County offers families an old fashioned experience with their children.

Instead of amusement parks, we have playgrounds in Cape Charles and Exmore.

Stroll down our non-congested streets.

 

Bicycle to explore our small towns and villages.

 

Swim and play on our family friendly beaches. The Chesapeake Bay facing beaches of Northampton County are shallow close in, allowing warmer temperatures than the Atlantic Ocean's and wading pool type water's closest to the shore line. Safe for small children. Relaxing for parents.

 

Catch Fireflies after dark.

 

Spot wild bunnies in the morning.

 

Hunt for sea glass and shells on our beaches.

 

Camp with the family at Kiptopeke State Park, CherryStone Campground or Camp Silver Beach.

 

Check out the Bay Coast Railroad in Cape Charles.

 

Play Miniature Golf.
