Summer Fun in Salem, VA

It’s July…the middle of summer.  Your kids still have a good month before they go back to school, and you may have run out of things for them to do.  But don’t despair.  There are many family activities in Salem, VA, this summer.  Here are just a few of them.

The Salem After Five concert series takes place at the Farmers Market on Main Street.  One concert will be held on July 26th, while another will be August 16.  Both run from 5:30 to 9:00 PM.  Admission is $5, and children under 12 are free.

There are a number of different summer camps in and around Salem.  They include a girls soccer clinic, a volleyball camp, the Salem Virginia Summer Camp, and more.  Some have already started, but there are still a few that take place in late July and August.

You can head to the local parks at any time during the summer.  Run, play games, have a picnic lunch, or just sit outdoors and enjoy the weather (when it’s nice, of course).  It’s all free, and you can go whenever you want and stay as long as you want.

The Mount Mill Zoo in Roanoke has some awesome animals and activities for the entire family.  They have seven different endangered species, including the adorable red panda and the majestic snow leopard.  In total, the zoo has mover 175 different animals.  You can visit them all on foot or ride the Zoo Choo Train through the zoo.

So what will your family do this summer?  Let us know in the comments!
