Shorter days mean that winter weather is coming before we know it up here in Alaska. If there is one thing I learned last year, the longer winter means it is even more important to plan ways to avoid the winter blahs.
This year I am thinking we might need a short trip to someplace that is outside of our ordinary. If we still lived back in Kent, Ohio, I would be checking out the deals for Kalahari Resorts’ Sandusky location.
What I remember from our Ohio days is that the location sports an awesome water park. Not just a mere swimming pool indoors, but slides of different sizes. The Zimbabwe Zipper reaches speeds of 40 mph. ~ faster than rush hour traffic back east!
There’s even an area for the younger kids that I am sure J would adore. I know that my boys enjoy swimming in the middle of winter and this place would be one they’d hesitate to leave.
What I didn’t know is that they have Safari Outdoor Adventure Park for during the warmer months. It features a three-level ropes course, 400 foot long Zip Line Tour, 32 foot high Adventure Climbing Wall and the Safari Adventures Animal Park where visitors can get up-close and personal with some really awesome animals. I’m thinking at least 2 of my boys would enjoy the Zip Line.
Plus, this location offers a variety of specials throughout the year to help make that time away have less of an impact on the budget.
