First vacation in 20 years. Taking our 15 year old son and his 2 friends with us. Rented a cabin in Bear Creek Crossing. Owner was fabulous in sending me a few coupons and giving overall info. Cabin is very reasonably priced and is a gated community with a pool and putt-putt golf course. One of the very few cabins that didn't charge a cleaning fee and the deposit came off the top of the total rental charge. Those were all pluses to me!
Going to be grilling and picnicking most of the time to save money. Intend to eat out once at Cici's Pizza and a nicer eat out meal for dinner. Going to do a breakfast buffet at least once.
Only two main attractions, but doing the Aquarium and Wonderworks for sure. Going to also do the Heritage Center, the Aviation Museum, Muscle Car Museum and Knive Works or superstore or something another. We also are thinking about teh Cooper Creek Trout Pond to try our hand at trout fishing. I think it is closer to Cherokee, however. Also possibly considering Lazer Port day bands for 5 attractions but cannot find many reviews on them. Not sure if worth the money or not.
We are planning on seeing as much of the Park as possible. Considering some of the classes the rangers do. Considering tubing in a more remote area and not in the middle of the crowds.
So, question is this. Anything I mention NOT worth it? Any suggestions of other things we could do that are VERY affordable?
I enjoy all the posts I read. Great information!
