Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe, California

This expansive Southern California retreat offers luxury accommodations in a setting that's ideal for family vacations. On a 40-acre estate just outside of San Diego, 49 hacienda-style suites provide a home-away-from-home ... that is, if your home happens to have tennis courts, a spa and a farm-to-table brasserie. While parents are taking a well-deserved break, children can enjoy arts and crafts, badminton, board games and more. But most likely families staying here will spend their time together, using the resort as a base for day trips to SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo and the Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
