Top 5 Things To Know When Visiting Schlitterbahn Waterpark & Resort South Padre Island During the Winter!
Don’t pack away your swimsuit just yet! Just because winter has arrived it doesn’t mean you have to be stuck indoors until spring arrives. Get out and enjoy a day at the waterpark! No, you didn’t hear me wrong! That’s right, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort South Padre Island features a heated indoor waterpark where families can enjoy a day of splashing fun. A trip as fun as this is sure to toss away the winter blues.
Top 5 Things to know when visiting Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort South Padre Island during the winter.
1. Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Resort provides beachfront family accomodations at an affordable price all throughout the week. However, the indoor waterpark is only open Sat-Sun during the months of January through February. The waterpark is also open during March on Saturdays and Sundays but will also be open all week during the weeks of the 9th – 13th and 16th – 20th for spring break. For a complete schedule click HERE.
2.Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Resort is located directly on the beach with easy peasy access points from both the outdoor waterpark and resort location. Parents, you won’t be disappointed at how truly great the beach access is and how clean this beach is. The kids will have a great time searching for shells and watching the hermit crabs come out in the evenings. Okay, that may be one of my favorite things but you will enjoy it too!!
3 3. Affordability….Affordability….Affordability. Did I mention affordability? As a frugal mom affordability is a huge factor for me when planning a family vacation. Schlitterbahn makes me breath a lot easier with frugal features such as allowing families to bring their own coolers into the waterpark. This is HUGE for my family because two hungry boys at a snack bar could very well break me. No joke! I have very hungry boys!!!
Another frugal feature I love so much is life jackets, bodyboards, picnic facilities and tubes (including tubes with bottoms for children) are all included free with your paid waterpark admission.
4. Dinner Shows! Throughout January and February you can enjoy a fun filled evening of music from 6:30pm – 9pm with musical talent from Branson and beyond! Resort guests receive discounted admission.
5 5. Winterfest! Mark your calendar for January 28th, 2015 and get ready to boogie down with some great musical performances and feed your appetite with food provided by the Shrimp Haus. Resort guests receive FREE admission. Tickets for non-resort guests can be purchased for just $17! Find out more information HERE!

Saving is that easy!
People keep saying Christmas is coming. Yes, I get it. All of us get it. If not by the Christmas lights covering the streets and malls much sooner than they're due, then by the fact that stores are barely able to keep in-stock due to people buying out the whole of their merchandise. It's the festival of presents, and people are sure taking this seriously. However, one thing surprises me, and it's that people actually keep wasting so much money buying things they could afford at much a cheaper rate. The appreciation you show a person by remembering them and giving them a present during Christmas is not based on how much you pay for it. Heck, usually people rip the price tags off in the first place! So why not save a little when buying tons of gifts?
It's actually pretty simple to save money on Christmas too. You just have to know where to go and what to do. Guess what, I'm about to share one of those secrets with you. You simply go to Overstock, a place I'm sure you've heard of before once or twice, and all you have to do to save is use Overstock Free Shipping. Yes, it's literally that simple. Overstock is a place that offers a massive variety of things to choose from, be it clothes, jewelry, beauty products, electronics, and even furniture! All made much more accessible because of the many overstock deals out there.
Think logically here. You've probably got quite a good list of names in your mind of people that you want to surprise during the holidays, am I right? Okay, now consider the fact that you'll be spending this and this amount of money on presents for said people. When you do the math, you probably get quite the ludicrous sum of money. How would you feel if I told you that you could shave off at least 20% off of that number? I'm not joking. How, you ask? Simply by shopping at Overstock while using one of their 20% off overstock promo codes. The kicker is that you buy one item with a coupon, then you might have enough for another one, which you can use a coupon on again! It's an endless cycle of spending less which enables you to either save or buy more, take your pick!
I mean, think about it - there's survival to be had after the holidays, and you don't want to be one of those people who end up broke because of how much they gave others. Granted giving for others is not a bad thing - on the contrary, it's one of the noblest things out there. However, we have to be realists here. You need to support yourself too, especially if you have people depending on you, like your wife, husband, kids, parents, grandparents, etc. Worrying about these things is all well and good, but why not save yourself the trouble? All you have to do is be smart with your money, and that is made easy if you shop at Overstock!
