Did you know there is a waterpark that is open year round in Sandusky, Northern Ohio? Did you know it snows in Ohio? So how can one go to a waterpark in the middle of February during a blinding blizzard? Well, there is an indoor waterpark at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. Yes, that  Sandusky – the same city that is home to the world famous Cedar Point Amusement Park. There is so much to do in the Lake Erie Shores and Islands region, including visiting a waterpark in the dead of cold Ohio winter.

Don’t forget to wear your sunscreen, even in the winter. The Texlon roof does not block out the sun rays and you can and will still burn.

After Mr. Beet and I spent a day at the waterpark, we ventured up to the Candy Hut, one of the many shops in the lobby of the resort. We bravely tried a chocolate covered jalapeno.
