KIDCATION: JULY 26 – AUG. 4, 2019

The summer is slipping through your fingers, kids will be headed back to school, and you haven’t even had time to think about taking a family vacation. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there! Your summer escape is waiting for you where the great rivers meet the Mother Road … and the kids are in charge! We’ll be rolling out the red carpet for a Kid’Cation July 26 – Aug. 4. Your destination for 10 days of great getaway deals (and free family events) is here. This is where the kids are treated like royalty and families can enjoy affordable fun. Take a glimpse at what we have in store.


Sweet Treat Trail Fun

Sweet surprises are in store on the Sweet Treat Trail during Kid’Cation.
