Water Parks in the Summer = A Beautiful Thing

3 Aug

I love summer. No, really… LOVE! Give me sweltering heat over turtle necks and snow boots any day.

 

One of my favorite pasttimes when I was younger was visiting Splish Splash Water Park on Long Island in New York. I haven’t been there in ages, so I’m sure it’s a bit dated but man, what a good time we had whenever we went.

 

There’s nothing like packing up a picnic lunch and spending an afternoon on water rides during the summer.Visiting the top amusement parks of the U.S. is a bucket list trip for me but if you’re a big water park fan, I’d suggest you pull together a fun road trip before summer leaves us!

 

The folks at TripAdvisor, a favorite resource of mine- I might add, pulled together a list of the top-rated water parks in the country. I’m a big fan of TripAdvisor because it provides real feedback from real people in real time so you know these water parks have to be good!

 

Take a look. Been to any this summer?
