“KALAHARI RESORTS IS REINSTATING FAMILY TIME, STARTING WITH SUMMER VACATION”! 

“Authentically-African Themed Resort is on a Mission to Save Family Time Before it Becomes Extinct”!

 In my home, It’s that time of year when we start thinking about family vacation time! It’s something we only get to do once or twice a year. “Due to the demands of modern life and overbooked schedules, families are, on average, spending less than eight hours per week with one another“. I know this is true in my family. We are always so busy with work, school, extra circular activities and the like that we’re like ships passing in the night.  Finding a time we can all cut the ties that bind us to our responsibility has often proven to be a difficult task. That;s why this summer my family has decided to divide our vacation time into three separate weekend getaways. We’ll be headed to Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio for a fabulous weekend adventure! The Kalahari is and African-themed family destination boasting the largest indoor water park in the entire US.  S_7_Indoor_Park

Have you ever looked at your child and wondered where the time went?  That moment when you realize how fast they’ve grown? I know I have! Time with family is a terrible thing to waste! This summer, save family time, make memories that will last a lifetime. Put away those tech gadgets and get out and enjoy time with the family!  To help encourage more family time this summer, beginning June 18, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions is also offering a “Fuel for Fun” special for a discounted room and a $40 gas card when you book your reservation at www.KalahariResorts.com.
