Just a hop skip and a jump form Cincinnati (about 22 miles) one finds the neat and friendly community of Mason. Ohio. This community of approximately 31,000 people may appear nondescript at first glance. However, in 2013 it was voted America’s 7th best place to live by Money Magazine – appearances can be deceiving – clearly Mason is something special.
For a middle sized community Mason punches way out of its weight class when it comes to tourist attractions. In and around the area there are numerous attractions that bring visitors from not only the surrounding areas, but from across the United States and even abroad.
If visitors want to enjoy water based activities and amusement they are in for a treat when they visit Mason.
First there is Soak City. Located in King’s Island Amusement Park this is a water park that has something for everyone, young and old. For the little ones Castaway Cove is a delight. A cozy pool and fountains of water to play in keep pint sized bodies active and encourages an exploration of fun and laughter.
For the older kids Splash Landing is perfect – with water slides and a giant bucket that fills up and soaks everyone in range this is water based fun at its very best. If the kids want Mom or Dad to join in the fun then the Mondo Monsoon is just what is needed. Riding four person inflatable rafts along the curves and dips is sure to leave everyone grinning.
If you prefer your watery fun indoors then a visit to Great Wolf Creek Lodge Resort has plenty of water park attractions – all set indoors in temperature controlled pools. There are also slides a tree house with water cascading around (and into) it. In fact there are too many rides and water based activities to mention. This is a place well worth visiting. Adults can also enjoy a soak in hot springs to relax and rejuvenate.
Of course there other non water based activities in Mason.
For instance explore the great outdoors, have a picnic with the family and maybe do some relaxed fishing at Warren County ARMCO Park. This green space is perfect for families to just kick back and relax taking in some beautiful natural vistas.
Mason Ohio is the perfect place for a weekend getaway with the family – if you are visiting Ohio and are in the area set aside some time to pay the folks there a visit.
