I'm a huge fan of the the Harry Potter series as it has gotten my kids to read very long, complex books.
The town of Staunton, VA turns into the world of Harry Potter for the weekend of September 22-24. https://www.potterpartyva.com
Just to add to the fun, my family is kicking around the idea of driving to Charlottesville and taking the train (Hogwarts Express style!) to Staunton, it costs $12/adult and $6/kid. If any of you would like to join us for the trip, it would be fun to see faces we know.
