Summer Fun Planning for Families
My wife and I spent much of this last weekend trying to organize our spring and summer calendar. It is a serious challenge to figure out where to put everything.
Plus, we can't have an entire summer filled with just sports games and tournaments, we need some fun in there.
If your kids are like ours, if it involves water, they're completely down for it.
While looking at some of the places that baseball tournaments will be taking us this summer, we found a place that we cant wait to visit.
Best Places to Get Lost in Fun This Summer
We have added the Largest Water Park in Illinois to our list of places we will be enjoying this summer. I'm almost embarrassed that I've lived in Rockford for almost 30 years and I've never heard of this place.
- 32 water slides
- 5 huge kiddie areas
- Giant wave pool
- Quarter-mile long lazy river (where you'll find me relaxing)
All of this, and MUCH more, just 80 minutes southeast of Rockford.
