Spring is finally here, the kids will be getting out of school soon and that means it’s time to start thinking about family vacations. One place we are going to be exploring this fall is Ohio! Peyton and I will be taking a road trip there in September for a 4 day break from Minnesota and visiting Ohio for the first time ever. One thing I look for when traveling is a resort or hotel that is family friendly. And by that I mean, they have kid-friendly foods and activities that little ones will enjoy. Here are 5 resorts or hotels that I think any family can have a great time at.
Cedar Point Hotel Breakers
This is actually the destination Peyton and I will be heading for. It is EXTREMELY family friendly. Connected to Cedar Point Amusement park with some of the highest and fastest roller coasters around Cedar Point Hotel Breakers is a child’s dream. From family-friendly restaurants to pools to having beach access to the lake there is plenty to do. The selection of accommodations is impressive too. There are the standard hotel rooms but there are also options for suites or even cabins! So if you are looking for a little more space to sprawl out and stretch out without sharing walls with neighbors the cabins are a perfect option.
Be sure to keep an eye out in mid-September for our travel stories while we explore the resort and take in the amusement park.
Kalahari Resorts & Conventions
Kalahari Resorts may have you thinking of the Water Park Capital of the World – Wisconsin Dells, but did you know they have another location in Sandusky, Ohio? Well, they do! With the same African theming this resort is all a family needs. Filled with water activities, great food, and comfortable accommodations your kids will never want to leave. The resort is part of a huge attraction that includes two enormous waterparks! One is indoors for year-round fun and the other outdoors, making this a year-round destination. And as if the waterparks were not enough there is also a Safari Outdoor Adventure Park animal park, complete with mini-zoo and zip lines. With a variety of waterslides ranging from toddler level to extreme, there is something for everyone.
Great Wolf Lodge
Now, we cannot talk about family-friendly resorts and leave out Great Wolf Lodge. Great Wolf Lodge is one of our favorite family resorts to stay at. We actually have a few things planned with the Minnesota and Wisconsin locations for May and June. So be on the lookout for those. But did you know there is also a Great Wolf Lodge in Ohio?! There is! One of my favorite things about Great Wolf Lodge is how you don’t have to leave once you arrive. They have everything! From coffee to sit down restaurants to fast food options, they have thought of everything. With an indoor and outdoor waterpark, Great Wolf Lodge has you covered no matter what the weather conditions may be. They also have a variety of slides and water activities so the whole family can participate. PLUS, they have activities going on throughout the resort for the kids to participate in!
These are just a few of the family-friendly resorts Ohio has to offer. They are all choices that I would stay at with my daughter and know we would have a fabulous time.
