Go swimming in Hastings for $3 (or $4)


It's Spring Break and families around you are heading to Miami or San Diego. They're at the beach and you keep seeing their photos of blue water and sandy beaches. Your kids want to go swimming.

Your only option is to send them into the puddle that has formed in the backyard because of the recent snowmelt.

We're here to tell you, though, that isn't your only option.

You can take them to one of two hotels here in Hastings and get them swimming for as little as $3.
