SEPTEMBER FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (September 9 – September 11, 2016)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful labour day weekend. We went on a 24 hour adventure and I thought I would share it.
My husband and I decided it would be fun to do a road trip with our two kids over the labour day weekend. I booked a night at a place called Hope Lake Lodge just past the Finger Lakes Region in New York. It was a five hour drive from Toronto. The place looked like a Great Wolf Lodge nestled in the mountains of Collingwood. The hotel was nice and food was good, but the Water Park was really lousy. It was 1/4 the size of Great Wolf and it felt gross and beaten up. The arcade also couldn’t hold a candle to Great Wolf, but it was okay. What we did all love was the Mountain Coaster! It is exactly like the one in Blue Mountain where you sit on the little cars and you control the speed. I wouldn’t go back to this resort but we had a nice adventure.

The next morning we drove two hours to The Strong Children’s Museum in Rochester NY. It was fantastic!!! There is something there for kids of all ages. I was in love with the upstairs with the toys and games. It was so interactive. My kids had a blast and we spent 5 hours there. The Strong Museum is a 3 hour drive from Toronto. If you want more information on it, go to: http://www.museumofplay.org. I highly recommend this place. It is DEFINITELY worth the drive! We have nothing like this at home!

After the Museum, we called around to book a hotel room for the second night. There were limited hotels available and the prices were jacked up so high, that we decided to drive home after dinner. I definitely recommend pre-booking a room in Rochester or Buffalo (in advance) if you plan to stay over.

After the Museum, we went to the Cheesecake Factory in Rochester and the kids loved it.
It was definitely a nice way to end the Summer!


 

I hope all of your Kid’s had a nice first week of School! I feel relief that my kid’s minds are now being stimulated during the day, but I secretly miss them when they are gone!
