I’ve been coming here every summer since I was a newborn, so I could hardly wait to bring my daughter here to make memories of her own! We travel with my mom’s side of the family, who have been vacationing in Okoboji since my mom was in first grade, and stay at the same place every year. The “resort” is in a great location and we have so many awesome memories here, but it could definitely use some updates. It hasn’t changed much since 1987 when I first started coming. 🙂 Our favorite things to do are swim in the outdoor pool, hang out by the lake (it’s usually too cold to go in), go on boat rides, shop, play games, and go out to eat all together, just to name a few. Tomorrow night we’ll all watch the annual firework show down by the lake. My favorite tradition though is our annual mini-golf tournament. We pair up in teams and the winners have to buy the losers old-fashioned nutty bars at Arnold’s Park. The competition is always fierce! I’ll be sure to let you know who wins … as long as it’s me 😉
How will you be celebrating the fourth? What are your favorite traditions?
See you back here on Thursday for an easy-peasy dinner recipe!
