You’re Helping Richmond Kids

When you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, we make sure the proceeds of your car benefit Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia. This means that you could very well be helping a child in your own neighborhood! Maybe it’s a child you’ve seen swinging at the park or checking out a book at the library. Whoever it is, you can feel good about knowing that you are helping local kids, and you are truly making a difference in someone’s life.

Richmond, Virginia is filled with rich history, beautiful architecture, and tons of fun activities for families. “Wish Kids” may live right in the midst of the fun, but they are usually unable to experience the greatness that many of us take for granted in our own hometowns. They dream of doing the types of things that we don’t think twice about, so we work our hardest to make sure that a child’s dream will come true. Whether they’re thrill seekers or history buffs, we’ll make sure they do what they dream.

The thrill seeker will love Kings Dominion, a theme park with gigantic roller coasters and refreshing water rides. They will also be drawn to G-Force Karts, which is great for the older children. Drivers must be at least 8 years old for junior carts, and 16 years old for adult carts. The explorer will enjoy the Children’s Museum of Central Richmond, where kids are offered a unique way to learn through climbing, creating, and exploring. The Science Museum of Virginia is another great option for kids to explore their imagination through exhibits and demonstrations, live theater, and IMAX films.

The animal and nature lover will love Maymont, the Metro Richmond Zoo, and the Rockwood Nature Center. Maymont is a Richmond mansion that offers 400 animals in wildlife exhibits, a Children’s Farm, and a Nature Center. The zoo offers a variety of exotic animals and children are even able to feed some of them. A Safari Sky Ride and carousel lift provide a bird’s-eye view of the zoo, which is great for children. The Rockwood Nature Center combines animals, nature, and learning for a great experience. For kids interested in reptiles and amphibians, they will enjoy the Three Lakes Nature Center, containing a 50,000-gallon freshwater aquarium.

Alternately, the little pilot-in-training may enjoy the Virginia Aviation Museum, which features many interesting exhibits and reproductions of early flight memorabilia, as well as lectures and films.  Children can even flight a flight simulator, take control of a real K-3 Cub, and watch a wind tunnel. Children will enjoy all that Richmond, Virginia has to offer, and there is something for everyone!
