Great Wolf Lodge
The first thing you should know is if that even if you can plan a last minute trip this week or next, you are going to pay a premium for mid April at this giant built-for-fun water park and vacay destination. Bu still, with several locations, this can be a really fun, fast getaway. You can choose a standard family room, or a themed room complete with bunk beds and fun surprises for the kids. When you book online, you can upgrade with add-ons, like a mani/pedi with mom, story time package, and more, especially if you use a code to book!
Your Nearest City
Baltimore? Boston? Houston? Find your nearest city and drive there. Visit their tourism website and book a tour and cheap-ish motel (what’s one night?). See what your home state has to offer. You will probably be surprised by how much tourism every city actually has. For example, when we visit the Baltimore city site, we found theater tickets, trolley tours, heritage tours, aquarium discounts, baseball tickets and more. Sometimes, you just need to get out of the house. Check out the Hyattfor something higher end at a great price.
The San Diego Zoo (or your nearest equivalent)
Find an amazing zoo, aquarium or museum and go there. Spend the day and book a room so you can all pass out from the long and exciting day. Many hotels offer discounts with museum passes or park tickets. Spread out your weekend and do not attempt to do the whole zoo/aquarium/park in one day. Go in the morning, get lunch and grab a movie. You can probably get a deal on a weekend pass. Check out zoo passes here!
