Plan your trip to Minnesota
For those families who are looking to enjoy a wet and fun-filled family getaway without heading to a waterpark, Minnesota has some options available. Arrowwood Resort and Conference Center and two Holiday Inn Express locations (Elk River and Brainerd/Baxter) feature great attractions like water slides, hot tubs, heated swimming pools and more. And, if you are looking for other waterpark options, Wisconsin is Minnesota’s neighbor to the East and features the Waterpark Capital of the World: Wisconsin Dells.
