Massive Indoor Water-Park Resort with Relaxing Spa and Lively Nightclub

With more than 15 water rides and attractions underneath a massive transparent roof, America’s largest indoor water park is at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio. You could spend all day experiencing different attractions—rides here range from high-banked, high-speed turns on the Zip Coaster to the “whirling vortex of fun” at the Tanzanian Twister. Parents can unwind inside the steamy indoor spa, while kids burn off their energy at the Shooting Star water basketball court. The resort’s FlowRiders attraction re-creates an ocean-like swell, allowing guests to experience the thrills of surfing as if they were catching a wave off Hawaii’s coastline. And those staying in one of Kalahari Resorts' Desert or Hut rooms get free admission to this whimsical water park.

Many aspects of the resort are kid-centric, but adults will find plenty of activities suited to them. Grab a tropical drink and lounge in a private cabanas (extra fee) a safe distance from any rouge cannonball splashes. The resort’s black-light mini-golf course and bowling alley can make for a date night or a full-family outing. At night, the African-themed The Reserve Restaurant & Bar restaurant transforms from a casual pub into a bouncy nightclub with dancing. And when all you want to do is relax, the Spa Kalahari specializes in restoring peace through rejuvenating massages and body treatments.

Sandusky, Ohio: Roller Coasters on Lake Erie

Located on the banks of Lake Erie and almost exactly halfway between Cleveland and Toledo, Sandusky earned a spot on Forbes’s list of Best Places to Live Cheaply for its picturesque lake views and premier theme parks. Foremost among them is Cedar Point, the self-proclaimed roller-coaster capital of the world and the country’s second-oldest operating amusement park, where you can ride 15 coasters among more than 70 rides. For an unforgettable 40-second thrill ride, climb aboard the Wicked Twister, which speeds up to 72 mph as it whips into a series of 450-degree spirals. Cedar Point is open Friday–Sunday until October 28.
