Last summer on a vacation to Northern California, my family camped for several days before rewarding ourselves with 1 night at a restored boathouse on the shores of Tomales Bay. It was a bit of a squeeze for our family of 5; but after making use the large bathroom (portable crib), window seat, and a car seat for baby, we managed to all experience a good night's sleep. Boy did we appreciate that outdoor shower after several days of no shower! Although I've only tasted it a maybe two times in my life, I now understand the allure of nice lodging.
If you're in the mood for a little splurge, then give the Bellagio in Vegas a whirl between the dates of May 21 and September 4. You can snatch up a 5-star deluxe room for a 3-star price of $149 (use coupon code: SU149D). I've seen Best Westerns more expensive than that!
You can book online here.
* Make sure you hit the yummy patisserie and gelateria in-house if you go!
