Family Vacation Ideas

Great Wolf Lodge
Sandusky, Ohio

For a fun family trip that has everything you need in one resort, check out Great Wolf Lodge! Their indoor water park, arcade, restaurants, and kids club provide tons of fun for the whole family!


We visited the Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, Ohio for a quick overnight getaway. The hotel features:

  • A 42,000 square foot water park & recreation area with a 4-story water tree fort

  • 9 waterslides, 3 pools, 2 whirlpools, a 25 foot water rock climbing wall, a lazy river, and three family restaurants

  • A beautiful rustic lobby featuring animated nature shows nightly

  • The "Cub Club" with daily crafts and activities for kids of all ages

  • A cool arcade with lots of great games!

The best thing about Great Wolf Lodge is that you can get two FULL days of fun for the price of one! You're able to use the water park and other attractions starting at 1:00p.m. the day you check in, and you can stick around to swim and play until 10:00 p.m. on the day you check out! WHAT A DEAL!

The kids flipped as soon as they saw the water park with giant 'tube' waterslides. The main attraction is the tree fort complete with several large 'squirt guns' and a giant bucket that dumps 1,000 gallons of water down a 30 foot 'waterfall'! As soon as the

bell begins to ring (meaning the big splash is coming) all the kids run for it to get doused. The fort also has a couple of pretty fast waterslides that are great for kids and grown-ups!

Smaller kids and toddlers can play for hours in the 'kiddie' pool which has several small slides and some fountains. There are also two waterslides for little ones in a separate two foot deep pool.

Another pool has several basketball nets and some floating toys for the kids to play on. When the excitement gets to be too much, float down the 'lazy river' on a tube, or relax in one of the giant whirlpools!

All that fun is sure to get you hungry, and the Great Wolf Lodge has you covered there too. Enjoy great food and service in the relaxed atmosphere of the Gitchigoomie Grill or a family style meal at the Lumberjack's Cook Shanty.

We went during the Christmas season, and the entire lobby was decked out in Christmas lights, giant snowflakes and a 30 foot tall Christmas tree. The kids even got to Meet Santa!

If you go, we'd definitely recommend one of the "Kid Cabin" rooms. These feature a log cabin inside the room complete with bunk beds, a TV, and Nintendo.

The kids can enjoy that 'camping out' feeling while mom and dad relax in the other room.

There are also Great Wolf Lodges in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and many other locations in the U.S. and Canada. The Great Wolf Lodge is a great place for a family getaway!
