When it gets hot and sticky outside in Indiana, what's the one thing everyone wants to do? Go swimming to cool off. As you know, there are a lot of places in Indiana that you can visit during the summer to cool off in the water. There are several pools, lakes, and splash pads scattered all throughout the state.  Perhaps you just want to take it easy on some of Indiana's best lazy rivers. Or maybe you'd like to visit what was named the best swimming hole in Indiana? Either way, you can never get enough fun in the water during the summer.

Indiana is Home to One of the Best Water Parks in the Nation

One of the biggest attractions in the state is Splashin' Safari in Santa Claus. Those of us here in Southern Indiana know how wonderful Splashin' Safari is. There's so much fun to be had whenever you visit. From floating down the lazy river to chilling in the wave pools, the six massive water slides, and their three awesome water coasters, Splashin' Safari is a great time for everyone in the entire family. It's been honored with several national awards throughout the years, and the water park was recently named one of the top 36 water parks in the entire country by US News.

Here's what US News had to say about Splashin' Safari:

A perennial favorite among families, Splashin' Safari, which is situated roughly 75 miles west of Louisville, Kentucky, is best known for having several fun family water coasters, including Cheetah Chase, Mammoth, and Wildebeest. The park also offers the eight-slide Tembo Falls and the Tembo Tides wave pool. When you need a break from the water, stop by Holiday World, the charming holiday-themed amusement park that's located next door. Ticket prices include access to both parks.

Splashin' Safari is definitely a must-visit waterpark. If you have never been to Holiday World and Splashin' Safari, make plans to check it out this summer with your family. You won't regret it!
