The Fun Continues in Chicago when the Taps are Turned Off

The lazy rivers aren't the only attraction worth visiting in Chicago. You'll see that this city offers entertainment choices for the landlubber in all of us. This is why Chicago welcomed thousands of visitors last year who made it one of the top ten places to cool off. It's just not guests that know Chicago is an energetic entertainment hub - the fun locals can make this city come alive.

With a stay in The Chi-Town you'll see why so many people have made it the number 9 city to cool off when the temperature rises.

Start out your Chicago water park adventure with a lazy, luxurious river float. Relax on a tube and let the water carry you through the park, past numerous attractions and families having a good time. Pretend you’re at the ocean when you take a dip in the wave pool and try to swim against the current. Take your children to the wading areas, and hold their hands as they wriggle their toes in the water. Don’t forget to head to the crowning glory of any water park: its slides. Whether you’re after a short, scream-filled thrill ride or a series of loops ending in a warm pool, water parks near Chicago have something for you.

You and your traveling companions, whether it’s friends, family, or children, will be wet and hungry after a long day at the water park. Cut down on transit time to hot showers and a good meal by booking a hotel close to the park. Get your little ones washed up and clothed in your hotel room, then order room service to fill your bellies. If you’ve got the energy, head down to the hot tub for a quiet soak in a non-moving environment. Upload all the pictures you took to social media via the hotel’s Wi-Fi, and watch a movie before tucking your family into bed.
