In the interest of saving money, we are looking to stay local this summer. However, this isn't as easy as it sounds. I'll be honest — my first idea came from watching Kate Plus 8 and seeing Discovery Cove. That place looked awesome! That being said — I went to price it out. Ummm, yeah. Way to pricey for us. Their prices start at $200 a person. Yes, let me repeat — start at $200! Cool, yes. Way to expensive for us, yes. By the time I add in airfare and everything else, well this trip would have costed us more than Disney did last year!
So after getting over my disappointment over Discovery Cove, I started looking local. We are just looking at taking the family away for a weekend. Kenosha started looking really good. Now, I need to talk Bill into it. I found the Bristol Renaissance Fair. I'm still looking for someone who has went here. I need to know if there's something for a 3 (aff) and a 6 year old to do or is this place too old? Also, I need to talk the hubby into it!
Anybody know of other things to do? We are looking at 4 hrs or less from Chicago we'd be willing to drive. Any ideas?
