Epic Waters Indoor Waterpark This is a great day trip but fun for the whole family. It’s so nice inside and you don’t have to worry about the heat or rain!

Great Wolf Lodge  You have to stay the night to get the waterpark passes and it can be pricey. Look for Groupon discounts. We did this instead of a birthday party one year for my daughter. She still talks about it though, best idea ever!
