We needed to spend a few days somewhere before heading back to Cedar Point and had heard good things about Neuseway Campground. The campground was easy to get to and, at $12 a night for full hook-ups, we figured we couldn't go wrong! We pulled in and got settled quickly and then it was off on the pedal bikes to explore the area. In addition to the campground, there are a few trails, three stocked ponds, a nature center, planetarium and museum. The nature center, planetarium and museum are FREE.

|Love those Cypress trees - this pic is for our Carolina Clan buddies!|
|Relaxing on the Neuse - such a great day!|
We were thrilled that we were able to kayak both days and commented about how nice the weather was for November!
Dan and I both wanted to check out the Nature Center and I really wanted to go to the planetarium. There was a school bus in the parking lot so we were a bit hesitant to go as we were afraid that the crowds would be crazy. But, as luck would have it, we had both places all to ourselves (kids were at the playground)! The guide put on a really nice show for us at the planetarium and I'm anxious to see if we can remember what we learned next time we are exploring the night sky! Before the show started at the planetarium, being the big kids that we are, Dan and I played around in the museum.

We had a nice time at Neuseway and would definitely go back if we were in the area again.
