The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler

Although best known as a ski destination, Whistler is also a great place to take the family for a warm weather getaway. Kids will love paddling a canoe to an authentic ghost town or joining a professional researcher on a four-wheel drive in search of black bears. Avello Spa and nearby Jack Nicklaus- and Arnold Palmer-designed courses will appeal to parents, but there are plenty of activities for all ages, including fishing, hiking and horseback riding. The hotel offers Whistler Kids at the Westin (18 months to 4 years old) and two off-site programs, the seasonal Teddy Bear Daycare (30 months to 5 years old) and the Summer Adventure Camp (5 to 10 years old). Also available is the SPG Kids Pass, an all-inclusive dining program with children in mind. For those who decide to bypass the summer vacation and head here once the snow falls, there are miles of ski trails for all levels.
