Best 5 water parks in the US
School is almost out and that means summer is here. The temperatures are soaring already and families are looking for ways to cool off and entertain their children at the same time. There is no better way to beat the summer heat than spending the hot summer days at a local water park. Or you can let them stay home and they will call you at work every 15 minutes for no reason at all, they will also come close to eating a year's worth of grocery in the span of two months. I bet the water park is starting to sound pretty good to you now.
The US has more than enough water parks to accommodate the thousands upon thousands of kids out on summer break. I have put together a very short list of the best 5 water parks in the US. If you live in or near any of these parks you owe it to your children and yourself to visit one. Let your hair down, take a break from the cares and stresses of work and school and enjoy a summer your kids and hopefully you too will be talking about for years to come.
