If you don't have the money to stay in a floating bungalow in Tahiti and Fiji, don't worry. You can do the same thing on a lake in Indiana.


There is an affordable alternative to that ultra-expensive foreign vacation right here in the Midwest. I was talking to a friend the other day and she informed me of some awesome floating cabins in Indiana. They aren't quite as fancy as bungalows on the ocean. But they are pretty cool. Patoka Lake Marina & Lodging is only a 6 hour drive from Rockford. Close enough to make a long weekend trip out of it. Fully equipped with everything you need including air conditioning. And the kids can jump right off the back porch and go swimming. Sounds like a no-brainer to me if you are looking for a quick relaxing getaway.
