Vacation ideas - kid friendly
It's time for us to plan our summer vacation. Can you help me choose a destination please? We have 3 young kids (ages 6, 4 and 1). I don't want to fly, but am willing to spend a day in the car to reach our destination (we are in SE Michigan). I'd love to rent a house/condo using VRBO.com or something similar since we've had luck with that in the past. We'd like to take a week for vacation during the last 2 weeks or July or the first two of August.
We love the water (ocean or inland lakes). I'm leery of going too far north since we spent last summer's vacation in northern Michigan and the water was COLD!
Any suggestions? Any "must see" ideas, or "avoid if at all possible" considerations?
