Spring break season has officially started. The question is where to take your children. Many of us canâ€™t afford to take the Florida vacations that we might have in previous years. Many of us will be celebrating spring break with an awesome staycation, but if you really need the getaway and you are on a budget, why not an indoor water park?
This year, we are kicking off spring break by visiting our first water park. Weâ€™ve never been and I was a bit leery because my little girls donâ€™t know how to swim very well. But the girls love water and going to a hotel with a pool is every kidâ€™s happy place.
Springtime in the Midwest, this means the weather is wet, cold and unpredictable. An indoor water park is the prefect remedy for cold weather cabin fever. The waterpark is kept a balmy 82 inside and the whole family can run around comfortably in their bathing suits.
Our destination included an elaborate enclosed waterpark with a five-story structure featuring a vaulted wood ceiling that covers a natural setting of palm trees, huts, inland lagoons and plenty of wet and wild water adventure.
After 5 hours of being waterlogged, jumping waves in the wave pool and slipping and sliding, the girls were finally ready to go up to the hotel room.
Tomorrow is another day but for the price, you really canâ€™t beat an indoor water park to lift the spirits and put a little high quality, low cost fun back into your spring break.
What is your favorite spring break destination?
