We recently announced our 2013 Ask-A-Moms (and dads)—our resident parent experts who provide their tips and tricks for a great trip to the lodge. Over the coming weeks, we are going to introduce you to each of them, giving you a look at why they love Great Wolf Lodge. First up, Anitra Elmore for our Charlotte/Concord lodge. Anitra is a wife, blogger and stay-at-home mother of two living in Cary, North Carolina.
We are not your typical family. When it comes to having fun, we each like very different things and have very strong opinions. Since none of us are afraid to speak our minds, it makes for some challenging times when we’re deciding what to do together. And when we decide to get away, it’s not always easy to make the right choice.
Except, of course, when our destination is Great Wolf Lodge.
Where else can we go, within driving distance, where we find something to please each of us? Mom can enjoy the spa while dad and the kids play in the water. Mom and the kids can run wild playing MagiQuest, while dad relaxes in the lobby or works in the cozy suite. We all enjoy mini-golf, bowling and the arcade, so that keeps us busy together for a while. When the kids need some quiet time, the Cub Club comes valiantly to the rescue.
We discover something new each time we visit. It’s amazing how much they’ve tucked away in the nooks, crannies and hallways of the lodge. While there are things we haven’t tried, like the kids spa, we definitely have our favorites—Story Time and the water slides are a must. And, if we decide not to eat at one of the restaurants on property, we’re surrounded by so many of our favorites right there in the area.
There’s absolutely no room for anyone to get bored when we visit. The concept is absolute genius and each time I’m there, I am overwhelmed at how well thought out everything is. We were hooked from the first time we heard that “Goin' to the Lodge” and we remain hooked because Great Wolf Lodge delivers what they promise. It’s the ideal place for families to make memories, and I am proud to say that we have indeed made a few.
As a blogger, I spend a considerable amount of my time making recommendations to other moms. When I find a product, service or destination that helps us enrich our family life, I’m pleased to shout it from the rooftops and across all of my social media channels. Great Wolf Lodge is definitely one of these places.
