Knott's Soak City Open for Summer!

Great news for Southern California residents! One of the best ways to beat the heat this summer is Knott's Berry Farm's Soak City - especially now that Wild Rivers is no longer in business. I don't know about you, but the older I get, the more grumpy I become about hot weather. I do not want to spend my summer being too hot and uncomfortable, so I'm planning on being in water as much as possible (even though my bikini body isn't what I'd like it to be - yet).
My kids love this water play area!

As a mom of three non-proficient swimmers, we gravitate towards the relaxing, small-scale attractions. I love the lazy river and the wave pool. The kids love the interactive water play areas especially. I would so enjoy getting a cabana for the day this summer and live large; but I doubt it's in our budget.
Even though you're chillaxin', DON'T pee in the pool!
