Best Family Hotels in the U.S.

From play dates to soccer games, kids' activities are a central part of family life. The same holds true for family vacations — as is evidenced by the wealth of resorts that cater to the wants and needs of kiddies. Gone is the era of plunking your offspring in front of a hotel room TV. These days, family-friendly resorts boast water parks, creative kids' camps and unique activities as varied as butterfly release programs and gold panning. But we here at GAYOT believe in equal opportunity, which is why we've crafted our list of the Top 10 Family Resorts in the U.S. with parents as well as children in mind. Across the country, we have selected properties that will appeal to the young and the young at heart, as well as adults who want a little "me" or "we" time on the golf course, in the spa or over a relaxing glass of wine.
