    Default inexpensive family get away ?

    Hello,

    We are planning a small vacation at the end of this month and I was curious if
    anyone had any great get away ideas. I live in OK and we are looking at Texas,
    Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico. We are planning to leave
    early on the 28th and we will need to be back home on Saturday in time for hubby
    to get sleep and back to work at 4am on Sunday the 2nd. We were looking at Sea
    World, I received a coupon for $129 for 4, but they are only open on the 30th,
    leaving us finding something else to do for the 28th and 29th. We will have a 7
    and 3 year old with us.

    Thanks!

    Melissa

    Melissa, are you talking about the Sea World in San Antonio? If so, there
    are plenty of fun things to do there. DH and I went years ago and enjoyed
    their outdoor market and the riverwalk area downtown. We didn't have kids
    with us then, but with a little search on the internet, you'll be able to
    find things for the kids. San Antonio is a fun place. You can also
    research the towns you'll be driving through and make short stops along the
    way to keep the kids interested. I don't have anything in particular off
    the top of my head, but Texas will have lots to do, if you just look. Do
    you or someone you know belong to AAA? If so, go get yourself a Texas
    Tourbook for more ideas.

    Going in another direction, Branson is lots of fun, especially Silver Dollar
    City. AAA offers discount tickets there as well, but you have to get them
    in advance. Tablerock lake is beautiful, even if it's too cold to swim, you
    can fish there.

    Santa Fe, New Mexico isn't too far away. It's lovely up there. Kansas City
    is fairly close and it's got Worlds of Fun amusement park too. Oklahoma
    City is nice with Frontier City, and the Omniplex with a nice science museum
    for the kids. They also have a wonderful permanent display of blown glass
    from Dave Chihuly at their art museum. Downtown has been re-done and is
    called 'brick town'. Look into their semi-pro baseball league to see when
    the home games are, they're pretty cheap to get into.

    I hope all that has helped somewhat.

    Well, I would look around at other attractions around Sea World. One thing
    that comes to mind is the Alamo. I assume you are talking about Sea World in TX.
    If you look online for San Antonio attractions, there are many fun ideas. You
    could visit some of the wildlife refuge zoos, visit a 20 duck , The River
    Walk I hear is beautiful, and lots of other places that might fit your family's
    interests.
