A Great Wolf Lodge opened up about an hour from us a while ago - maybe 4-5 years ago. We finally tried it out last summer for an overnight - and it was great - at least great for a family with a kid. We went back last February around my daughter’s birthday for another overnight. It was cold out and there was snow on the ground, so it was nice to go play in the water and pretend it was summer. The only thing was that in the summer they have their outside pools open too - and the pool bar - which, of course, wasn’t available in February. Well - our two overnight trips were fun - but too short and very busy - trying to cram everything in. You check in - hang out in the water park all day - go back to the room and change - get some food and go play games - and then the next morning it’s time to check out. You can stay the whole day after checking out, but now you are living out of the trunk of your car and a locker. So this summer - in July - we are going to head back - this time for a couple days. It’s nice having things like this pretty close to us.
Our next trip is only a couple weeks later - and it’s not pretty close - it’s actually on the other side of the continent and is our big adventure for the year.
Coming next time…
