2. Grand Country Resort

This is my kid’s favorite year-round.  The actual hotel is not the fanciest, but it has an indoor and outdoor water park that my kids LOVE that is included in your stay.  Between the lazy river, several pools, hot tubs, water slides, water basketball, a giant bucket, and your family is sure to find something to enjoy for all ages!  They have a special area for small children indoors and outdoors that was perfect when I had young babies. They also have a pizza parlor, mini-golf, a kids club, live music shows, and more on sight for your family to enjoy.
