Trip Report July 2007

Stayed at Great Wolf Lodge for 5 days. Very nice staff, very clean, nice pools. Have kids 2, 6, and 8. Older kids might find the pools a bit boring, but our younger ones loved it.

Had breakfast at Great wolf, great value, served family style. Kids loved it.

Ate at Berardi's, local home cooking. Excellent food, service, homemade pies. Highly recommend.

Spent 2 days at CP. Had a an absolute blast. Short lines during middle of week for many of the "older" coasters (5 minute wait for Gemini). Long wait for Top Thrill Dragster, but worth it for the bragging rights.

Spent 1 day at Surf City at CP. Disappointed in this water park. Long waits in lines, even during the middle of the week.

Took Jet Express from Port Clinton to Put in Bay. Nice trip. Took kids to fort maze (great time), Gem Stone mining (great time). Monument is closed for season for repair.

Tried Downtown Sandusky one evening for dinner by lakefront. Area was dead except for a couple of bars that served food, but didn't want to take the kids in.

Ate at Cameo pizza. Good but not great. Wouldn't go out of my way for it.

good report! i agree, Soak City isn't worth it. Glad you enjoyed PutinBay, and glad the kids had fun as well! Berardi's and Cameo are both local favorites, I'm sad your experience wasn't better at Cameo, but Berardi's deserves all the praise in the world. And yes, sadly, downtown sandusky doesn't have much to offer in the way of waterfront dining besides Damons (Damons is kinda set away form the main drag of downtown, so you may not have seen it).
