Weekend getaways don't have to involve long drives to "the country." Frying Pan Park, located at 2709 West Ox Road in Herndon, offers families the opportunity to meet farm animals and their newborn babies up close. Open daily from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Kidwell Farm is alive with sheep, pigs, goats and cows. Hayrides are also available. There is a drop-in-fee of $2. Call 703-437-9101.
