There you have it, our pool and water park reviews. As we continue to make our rounds during the summer of 2013, updates will be added to the reviews. And, we may be adding new pools to our list!
It was great fun visiting the various pools and water parks for our “research” yet the reason for the reviews is that this is the type of information I wanted prior to visiting and it wasn’t available. . . anywhere! The idea for the pool reviews was born at our family’s kitchen table, just like many other ideas. We hope the information helps you and your family to have fun!
