Right outside Alexandria, Oxen Cove is an adorable little farm with animals that makes a great getaway on the weekend, especially if you have kids. The space isn't particularly expansive, so you probably won't need more than an hour.

Before I went, I didn't realize this was mostly geared toward kids, but it was nice anyway. It's still a fully functioning farm, which is rare in this area!
