Daily deal: Legendary family waterpark getaway
Plan a hike or biking trip through the Chiricahua Mountains.
When it comes to giant mythological lumberjacks, Paul Bunyan stands head and shoulders above the competition—literally.
And when it comes to a rustic family getaway, so does The Lodge at Brainerd Lakes.
Take a swing at two nights of fabled fun at the Baxter, Minnesota, hotel where you and your little campers will enjoy a two-night stay for up to four people in a standard room, a free weekday breakfast buffet, and four passes to the sprawling, indoor Paul Bunyan Water Park at a seriously axed price of $199.
At a legendary 30,000 square feet, the aptly named water park (currently closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays) will keep the kids busy for hours with water cannons, a tree house, lazy river, and slides like the light and music-programmed Holographic Tube while you and your Babe enjoy the indoor/outdoor hot tub or a beer and a burger at The Lodge Grill & Bar.
Keep the folklore-worthy family memories coming at the on-site Gold Mine Arcade, where you'll find games for all ages like pool, air hockey, racing, and skee-ball, nearby fishing and boating. Enjoy an evening of playing cards in spacious, cabin-inspired rooms-complete with a mini-fridge, coffee maker, and complimentary Wi-Fi, and big enough to accommodate guests of mythic proportions.
Give yourself a break and your little lumberjacks a story to pass on to the next generation. Now if only we could find a big-blue-ox-sized inner tube...
- A two-night stay for up to four people in a standard room
