Are you ready for a road trip? We're Taking Off to a destination that is not too far away and it is fun for the whole family. We're exploring Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky Ohio, which is just over two hours away from downtown Detroit. It's famous for it's a giant indoor water park, but since the weather is still nice you have to check out their outdoor park. 

It is jammed packed with fun activities for everyone in the family. Their newest addition is Bugs Burrow, a water play paradise for the littlest ones. They have mini swings and slides and a beach-entry pool that everyone, kids, parents, even grandparents, can play in. Bugs Burrow is decorated with fun, colorful bugs, making the kids feel like they've been shrunk to the size of a small critter. The kid's Safari Pool is great for all ages as well and has more of an African safari theme. 

For the thrill seeker's in the family, they've recently added 5 new slides including two two-person tube slides, one one-person tube slide, and two body slides. They have sudden drops, twists, turns, funnels, the works. This is where Michelle Oliver spent most of her time, laughing as she splashed her way down. Climbing the stairs back up to the top can be quite the workout, but luckily you do not have to carry the tube up with you.  

If you are looking for more of a relaxed vibe, you can chill in one of their two indoor-outdoor hot tubs, or rent a poolside bungalow. The bungalows are perfect for families that want a home base in the water park where the little ones can catch a quick snooze or watch something on the TV as they recharge.
