1. Bet it all on your favorite horse at the steeplechases in The Plains

Nothing says tradition and gentility like Virginia steeplechasing. The time-honored event was founded in 1922 in Warrenton, but the sport of steeplechase racing goes back to Colonial times. Today’s Virginia Gold Cup is still held in Warrenton’s Great Meadow (twice a year in May and October), and tailgating is the highlight for many spectators. Attendees decorate their tables and don their finest hats. Whether you score a tent on Members Hill, or tote a picnic for general admission, this all-day event includes terrier races, hat contests and of course, betting. The Gold Cup has nine races leading up to watching the Kentucky Derby on the Jumbotron. // 5089 Old Tavern Road, The Plains; Prices vary for tents, general $100 car pass; $25 general admission

2. Pay your respects to the nation’s servicemen and women at the National Museum of the Marine Corps

Take time to reflect on the selfless contributions made by courageous soldiers and their families who served our country since the Revolutionary War. The National Museum of the Marine Corp’s Legacy Walk showcases how Marines perform humanitarian missions, provide embassy security and how they responded to 9/11. The museum recently unveiled fresh stories from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Check out the newly installed FA-18 fighter jet that flew over Washington after 9/11 and the M60A1 Tank used during Operation Desert Storm. // 1800 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle; free

3. Soak in the small town charm of Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg is charming any time you visit, but arrive on any Fredericksburg First Friday, and merriment rises to a whole new level. The historic downtown is transformed into a roving party with galleries and shops open late, most serving drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Take the trolley to LibertyTown Arts Workshop or Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts, where live music and wine flow freely. Artists are on hand to discuss their creations. Downtown businesses often have sales and don’t miss the PONSHOP with its whimsical skateboard art. Fredericksburg Trolley rides are free and available from 6 to 9 p.m. with stops around town. // Fredericksburg Visitor Center: 706 Caroline St., Fredericksburg; free

4. Put your pinkies up at Oatlands in Leesburg

Celebrate a special occasion with tea at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens. Afternoon tea in the Carriage House is scheduled around events like Mother’s Day, and features scones, tea sandwiches and sweets. Or get even fancier at Oatland’s high tea, held in the drawing room of the mansion. It includes Champagne and a selection of sophisticated treats. Make advance reservations online as these tea events sell out quickly. // 20850 Oatlands Plantation Lane, Leesburg; $39.99 afternoon tea, $100 high tea

5. Pose in front of the pink blooms at Meadowlark in Vienna

Forget the crowds around the Tidal Basin and photograph the pink explosion of cherry blossoms closer to home. Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is part of the NOVA Parks system and consists of 95 acres of ornamental display gardens and native plants. Meadowlark’s cherry trees encircle Lake Caroline where ducks and other wildlife love to frolic. Take the lakeside path or watch from the Gazebo as giant orange carp swim beneath. As you wander the wooded trails, soak in the nurturing sensation of tranquility. Kids love to investigate Meadowlark’s Visitor Center with its collection of live animals. // 9750 Meadowlark Gardens Court, Vienna; $3-$6, kids 6 and under free

6. Sip some history at a winery in Lovettsville

Taste while you learn at Hiddencroft Vineyards’ Local History Tour in Lovettsville. Vintner/owner Clyde Housel shares the history of Hiddencroft’s property, which traces back to 1762. Former owners left documentation about life on this farm that helps the Housels explain operations on the property after the Civil War. The winery produces 23 different varietals using estate-grown grapes and fruit—98% is Virginia grown—and every wine is made on the premises. This history-themed tasting also includes tours of the historic buildings, along with lunch, a wine tasting and a souvenir wine glass. // 12202 Axline Road, Lovettsville; open daily (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) noon-6 p.m.; Tour requires advanced reservations: $25, must be 21 years or older

7. Commune with nature in Prince William County’s expansive national park

Once a relief camp during the Great Depression, the 15,000-acre Prince William Forest Park is now a refuge of forested trails where bikers can escape busy streets and relish serious solitude. Hidden amongst busy suburban Prince William County, the national park offers 20 miles of biking trails—12 miles are paved and 9.2 miles are gravel. Whether you prefer flat surface biking or off-road cycling, this biologically diverse cultural area is the perfect environment to commune with nature. The park is open sunrise to sunset, and the visitor center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. // 18170 Park Entrance Road, Triangle; $15 per vehicle to enter park; $7 walk-ins; $30 for an annual pass

8. Let the bluebells ring in Nokesville

Along with cherry blossoms, another harbinger of spring is the region’s magnificent bluebells (mertensia virginica) and you can see the bluebells in all their glory at Merrimac Farm. The picturesque farm is located next to Marine Corps Base Quantico, where the wildlife management area protects a mile-long trail of Virginia bluebell fields that bloom in April. The farm’s 100 acres of wetlands, including floodplain wetlands around Cedar Run, create an ideal environment for these graceful purple flowers. Along with bluebells, Merrimac Farm is home to butterflies, birds, frogs and turtles. Check its Facebook page for information about the annual Bluebell Festival. On your visit, wear long pants and water-resistant shoes. Because of the fragile ecosystem, no pets are allowed. // Merrimac Farm: 15020 Deepwood Lane, Nokesville; free

Filling your home, apartment or garden with flowers and vines has been on trend every spring, but this year, it’s time to take it to the next level. The Rosslyn Blooms! Flower Festival will celebrate all things floral-related by “flower bombing” the Central Place Plaza in Arlington on Saturday, May 11.

Starting at 10 a.m., the festival will host paid adult workshops and free kid workshops, ranging in topics from floral watercolor paintings to DIY succulent felting. Throughout the day, visitors can enjoy a pop-up cafe, live music and local vendors ready to promote beautiful blooms and send you home with some potted plants of your own.

If you’re in the market for a Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving, floral arrangements will be available for purchase, ranging in price from $30 to $80. Local florists will also be on site to discuss your upcoming special event and wedding needs.

You can even create your own arrangement at the BYOB (Build Your Own Bouquet) Bar throughout the day, and take a stop by the “impossible to kill” table, where those without green thumbs can find a strong, independent plant of their own.

Adult workshops will be held by Revery Paper Flora, Painted Palettes, Rock Paper Pant and She Loves Me, and require pre-registration payment online for $20 to $30 per person. Both of the kid-focused workshops are designed for ages 8- to 12-year-olds and should also be pre-registered online (at no cost, just for class-size purposes) and will be hosted by The Lemon Collective, a creative workshop space in Washington, DC.

For more information, visit rossylynva.org. // Central Place Plaza: 1800 N. Lynn St., Arlington; free to enter, workshop prices vary

How to manage your child’s allergies

Seasonal allergies are common but can be very difficult for a child to deal with. More than 35% of children suffer from allergies each year. As a parent, this can be tough to handle, especially while most just finished helping their child fight off cold symptoms.

Hemant Sharma, M.D., M.H.S., the chief of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC has provided the recommended tips below to help parents manage their child’s allergies and reduce agitation.

Be proactive about body protection

Prevention is the best way to avoid allergy-triggering stimuli like pollen and dust. Give your children sunglasses to prevent watery, itchy eyes. When returning indoors for the day, take a shower to wash off anything that may trigger a reaction and to prevent pollen from lingering on clothes or in hair.

Administer allergy medication in advance

Antihistamines will be your go-to for managing allergy symptoms. Some antihistamines are short-acting, and some are on a time release, lasting up to 24 hours. These are safe for kids when administered correctly, so pay close attention to the drug facts on the back. Non-sedating antihistamines can be used during the day without causing drowsiness.

Nasal sprays and eye drops are also good options. If the allergy symptoms still persist, ask your pediatrician about seeing an allergist to undergo allergy testing and discuss other options, such as prescription medication or allergy shots.

Shut the windows and close the doors

It’s tempting to keep the doors and windows open in the springtime, but doing so will attract the outdoor triggers that can cause an allergic reaction. Close the doors once inside, and try to keep the windows shut to minimize indoor pollen.

Dr. Sharma serves as the director of the Food Allergy Program at Children’s National. His main areas of research interest include health disparities in food allergies, and novel immunotherapies for food allergies.
