A nature lovers paradise, Sherbaug is essentially a theme park that also provides luxury tent rentals. You can follow secluded nature walkways at your leisure, or don your swimwear and head to the water park area. If these are too tame for you, get into the horror house! Then calm your nerves by strolling through the cactus gardens. The grounds have ducks, exotic birds, and even rabbits if your kids like that. There’s a tree swing too, so you can relive your own childhood.
