Long gone are the days when a Griswold-esque family vacation was anyone’s idea of fun. Today, modern families require a particular set of leisurely pursuits – and family resorts across the country are pulling out all the stops to offer such fine recreation. On top of the typical smorgasbord of family amenities – day camps, cool pools, kids’ meals – our 10 favorite family resorts offer something different: pioneering learning programs. Yes, we’ve said it. Learning really is fun at these family resorts, where kids can hone in on their latest obsession be it tennis or sailing, learn a new craft like surfing or waterskiing, pick up a few pointers in the kitchen at a cooking school, or star gaze with skill after an intriguing 101 in astronomy. Formulated to engage and inspire, these innovative resort programs span the U.S., from Florida to Vermont, Texas to Minnesota, San Diego to Maui, and provide the winning formula (instruction, encouragement, and rewarding hands-on activities) for a satisfying summer vacation. Plus, the experience and knowhow will last long after your family heads home. Check out our Family Resorts Slideshow for a sneak peak at these fun, kid-friendly resorts.
