Things To Do In and Around Midlothian, VA
This bustling suburb with a population of 67,000 is in Chesterfield County, which boasts nearly 60 public parks and 4,000 acres of idyllic green space. There are opportunities to get fresh air and exercise at every turn, and residents love exploring the area's many attractions and activities, most of which are located within a 30-minute drive of The Grove.
Learn all about Midlothian's history as a coal mining village starting in the 18th century on an educational driving or walking tour that includes original mining sites, churches, burial grounds, and private homes. History buffs will love learning how the area progressed throughout the centuries, and seeing remnants of the progress.
When you're ready for some leisure time in the sun, head to Pocahontas State Park. There you'll find plenty of fishing, boating, and camping opportunities around the 156-acre Swift Creek Lake. The lake is open for fishing nearly year-round, and the park rents canoes, kayaks, rowboats, and paddle boats during the summer - perfect for a day or weekend escape to nature!
The Dutch Gap Conservation Area in Chesterfield County is considered one of the best birding sites on the East Coast. Sightseers love the variety of woods, wetlands, and wildlife, and hikers appreciate the miles of scenic trails through the area and along the James River. Visitors can schedule a 3-hour private, guided kayak or canoe tour to get up close and personal to this beautiful nature preserve.
When the grandkids come for a visit they will love going to the Metro Richmond Zoo! There are over 2,000 animals to see, interactive animal experiences like feeding the giraffes, and even fun amusement rides. A yearly membership gives you extra perks throughout the year.
If your family loves dinner and a live show, you can get both at Swift Creek Mill Theatre. This historic playhouse is housed in a former 17th-century watermill, and regularly produces plays geared for children and youth. With an optional Virginia-style buffet offered before every Mainstage performance, it's a complete night out for the whole family!
Not only is The Grove close to all these wonderful outdoor spaces and attractions, it’s also close to shopping, dining, medical facilities, and daily necessities. And of course, Richmond — with its world class museums, history, and cultural events — is a short drive away.
