Summer has officially come to a close and it is time for me to share our very last summer adventure. I didn't know how we were going to top the others, but I think we pulled it off. We had a family reunion the other weekend, about 2 hours away, up north. We told the kids that we were going to that. What they didn't know was that we had booked a hotel room at a water-park on the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth!
We stopped for gas in a small town called Rush City and apparently, they have the World's Largest Walleye, so we had to stop and take the obligatory, touristy family photo!
Our family reunion was out in the country. Man, I love being out in the country. Everything is so beautiful and peaceful, but to be honest, my husband and I were itchin' to get up to our real destination!
After we had lunch with the family, it was only a 45 minute drive to our hotel on Lake Superior. We stayed at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark in Duluth and as soon as we arrived, we knew we'd be happy.
Check-in was quick and easy. The gave us a welcome packet with our wristbands, coupons and tokens for BOGO drinks at the bar and coffee shop! They also had a cute welcome in the room for us! Way to win a mama over!
I was, seriously, blown away by the view from our hotel room. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you already got a sneak peek, but man, is it gorgeous!
Of course, the kids couldn't wait to hit that waterpark! We couldn't either, so this is where we spent most of our night! It is a pretty sweet indoor waterpark.
The next morning, after enjoying the breakfast buffet, we checked out of our hotel room and headed down to Canal Park.Have you ever seen anything so beautiful?
It was a partly cloudy, windy and chilly day, but we still made the most of it.
My son tried to be Thor and move a giant anchor.
I also made them pose for another obligatory, touristy family photo!
All I know is that we all felt it on Lake Superior. We all felt the wonder, the power, the peace and the freedom that such a beautiful place can provide!
I, truly, from the bottom of my heart, loved this trip. I don't think that I have ever soaked in tranquility like I did at Lake Superior. I mean, come on, how could you not?!
There you have it! Our final summer adventure to Duluth and Lake Superior. I hope that you have enjoyed sharing in our adventures and I also hope that you found some local adventures of you own! [Tweet “Our final summer #adventure to Duluth and #LakeSuperior. I hope you've enjoyed the ride!”]
