Summer is by far my favorite season here in Minnesota. The days are longer. The kids are out of school. The family appears to be more relaxed from the hustle and bustle of the school year. What better way to spend your summers than at an outdoor waterpark. Minnesota does not disappoint when it comes to swimming options.
