Stupid Oil Spill

Posted by Mandy at 11:46 AM

For obvious reasons this oil spill in the gulf is simply terrible. But, if I can be just a bit selfish...


I was on Facebook saying how I am ready to go to Destin this summer, only to be reminded that, really, I probably don't. Bummer.

I started to think of other beaches, but it seems that this oil spill is pretty much ruining them all this summer. I'm not sure how far we're willing to drive for a beach experience, but I feel somewhat of an urgency to go THIS summer. I have no idea who we will have in our home next summer, and if a trip to the beach will be possible or enjoyable.

Now, I'm trying to rethink vacation plans. I want to get out of Arkansas, but where to go for summer fun with no beach?

For now we're looking forward to out typical summer events: Magic Springs, Mid-America, the awesome pool at Chicot Co. State Park... but I am looking for a road trip. I want to go somewhere that cannot be mistaken for Arkansas. Any ideas?

Atlantic side of Florida may not be messed up, although it could be crowded. South Texas, perhaps? It's upstream. Ocean City, Maryland is nice, and you can catch DC on the trip. Just a bit of travel.

Still praying that somehow that petrochemical disaster becomes less than it seems to be, but it's looking worse.

Branson is always a winner for families with kids. We take our boys to Silver Dollar City every summer and they always love it. There are a lot of other fun things to do such as all the different shows, go carts, some sort of butterfly palace?, mini golf, bumper boats, White water and a dinosaur exhibit that i havent had a chance to take the kids to yet. There is place called the grand country inn, if im not mistaken about the name, that has its own indoor/outdoor water park included with the cost of your room.

Do you like mountains at all? I know it's not the beach, but it could still be fun. East TN (Chattanooga area) is gorgeous!!!
