Why go? It's the waterpark capital of the world! Your kids will get waterlogged long before they'll get bored.

What to do: Since they’re open year-round, the indoor waterparks can be enjoyed any month. Get a day pass for Noah's Ark Waterpark (America's largest) and race each other down 2018’s newest ride, Raja, which ends in the mouth of a king cobra. Or book one of the wet and wild resorts, like the African-themed Kalahari Resort Waterparks (the Sahara Sidewinders looping slides literally drop you through the roof) or Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park (the Lost City of Atlantis water fortress has slides, geysers and monster dump buckets).

Where to stay: In addition to the resorts with indoor waterparks, there are plenty of quieter options like Alakai Hotel & Suites and Hilton Garden Inn where you can get a nice room for less than $100 per night.
