Weekend Retreat At Bayfront Resort At Crossview

Bayfront Resort at Crossview is a luxury RV and cottage resort. We don’t own an RV, but I wish we did after visiting Bayfront. The good news is that you can stay here even if you don’t have an RV. They offer several cottages, which is where we stayed. There’s also an option to rent an RV and have it dropped off directly at the resort. You don’t have to worry about driving or parking it. 

Here’s a closer look at what makes Bayfront Resort a perfect option for your next weekend getaway.

Kings Island 2024 News & Updates

On August 10th, 2023, Kings Island Amusement Park and Cedar Fair announced that it was expanding its award-winning kids’ area, Camp Snoopy. The park announced Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers, a new roller coaster, would be added to the family-friendly area for the 2024 season, along with other new additions to Camp Snoopy. 

We’re huge fans of Kings Island. Our kids are teens now and probably not as interested in Camp Snoopy, but the updated kids’ area will surely be a hit among families visiting the amusement park for years to come.

Are Kings Island Season Passes Worth It?

ings Island Amusement Park is one of our favorite Ohio spots to visit each year. I have fond memories of annual visits as a child and teen to Kings Island. I’m old enough to remember when Woodstock Express was called the Scooby-Doo roller coaster (then Beastie, followed by Fairly Odd Coaster). 

If you’re a fan of Kings Island or live within driving distance, you may be wondering if season passes are worth the cost. The answer depends on how often you plan to visit the amusement park during the season and how likely you are to take advantage of the benefits that come with a Kings Island season pass.
