If you are looking for an affordable, fun, family vacation then look no further than the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park/Resorts. This is a great getaway for the weekend,  a week or longer.

There are 80 Jellystone Parks mostly in the Eastern portion of the U.S. There are seven of those locations in Texas the closest of which is in Wichita Falls.

These parks are like an all inclusive resort, sort of, with water parks, camping and hiking, cabin rentals, mini-golf, live music and more. Depending on where you travel there are lots of great water activities and outdoor fun, like boating and fishing. The whole family can have fun even if you're on a budget.

You can take your own RV or tent or rent accommodations on the camp grounds to suit your needs. They have cabins that even include Wifi. There are also stores on site just in case you forget supplies or want a souvenir.

So when you plan your weekend getaway, Spring Break or vacation don't overlook the simple and amazing places close to home. It will still be fun but much more affordable than say a trip to Disney or a family cruise.
