I’ve heard Kalahari Resorts is an awesome place to go for a family get away! I’ve never been there simply because there isn’t one located near me.

Well, I’m excited to share they have plans to build a third waterpark resort and convention center property in the Pocono Mountains, tentatively scheduled for opening in late 2014 or early 2015. This isn’t too far from me, so I’m thrilled!

I’d never heard of them before right now but I need to remember this for next winter. I looked all over for fun indoor waterparks this winter and couldn’t find one I loved for our family. This looks awesome.
