SPLASH INTO SPRING BREAK WITH FOSS SWIM SCHOOL: TIMBER RIDGE LODGE {LAKE GENEVA}

By: Jessica Gebbink

If you are a parent, you know that traveling is hard work. Typically squishing a family of five into a hotel room means a lot of stress and not much sleep. But when you need a break from the depths of a northern Illinois winter, where can you go to feel tranquil 87-degree breezes, warm waters, and get away from it all? My family hops across the border to Timber Ridge Lodge and Water Park at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. It’s close to home, very affordable, and perfect for all ages.

When you drive through the welcoming gates and down the rolling driveway, it feels like you are entering a luxurious destination. Take your first right to enter the Timber Ridge portion of the resort, and you and your family will be transported to the great north woods. After you check into your room, put your swimsuit on and dash down the hallway to the mid-sized indoor water park!

Indoor Water Parks That Will Save Your Winter

By: Amy Bizzarri

The tropics have come to Chicago! Well, kinda. If you’re looking for humid temperatures, palm trees, beach chairs and water play, head to one of the region’s indoor waterparks. There are great options located a short drive from the city and many offer day passes. Click through our album to see which ones you should visit when you need an escape.

Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark – Lake Geneva
Main Attraction Climb, swim or slide down Moose Mountain Falls, the main attraction at this spot, located just across the border in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, less than two hours from Chicago. Perhaps the biggest draw here is the Tiny Timbers area, which is ideal for kids ages 3-6 due to its swings, slides, spouts and mushroom waterfall. The main activity pool has a rope climb and a water basketball court. A lazy river snakes around the entire waterpark.

Thrill Factor: 2 out of 5. This park is designed with kids ages 10 and under in mind. There are two single and double tube slides, which are just right for kids of any age with swim skills.

Family Appeal: The adjacent Timber Ridge Lodge is designed for families: One- and two-bedroom suites are available, so parents can relax and watch a movie in the living room area while the kids are nestled in bed. Plus the waterpark and lodge are located within the Grand Geneva resort complex, and you can not only enjoy splashing around the waterpark but also skiing, skating, sledding and horseback riding in the winter, golf in the summer, and spa time year ’round.

Admission: Room rates start at $195/night and include waterpark admission. On weekends and holidays, the waterpark is reserved for resort guests only. All other days, groups may purchase admission by contacting 262-249-3499.

3 Spots to Make and Eat Pizza—and Call It Business

By: Kelsey Ogletree

F&B can take a big slice out of your budget, but it can also be a tasty piece of your event pie. Popping up at hotels and venues around the country, hands-on pizza-making activities can serve dual purposes, satisfying teambuilding components of your conference as well as appetites. Take a look at these three options, and get ’em while they’re hot!

Flour & Barley
This Las Vegas pizzeria isn’t afraid to get eccentric with toppings, from calamari to broccolini. Teams compete to create the most delicious (or outrageous) pizza, and a panel of judges (that can include your company’s CEO or the restaurant’s owner) chooses a winner. Bonus: The package comes with a two-hour open bar.

Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel
Hired as executive chef earlier this year, Chaz Frankenfield has tossed things up, breaking groups out of the ballroom and into the kitchen. Teams are given dough and toppings to shape how they please. They can get down to business while their pizzas are baking, then enjoy the spoils.

Timber Ridge Lodge
The competition at this Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, property involves much more than crust, sauce and cheese. Things can get downright saucy when you throw in creative elements such as groups designing their own pizza box, logo and even making a 30-second commercial for their pie.
