The Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler, Canada

Although best known as a ski destination, Whistler is 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 in a four-wheel drive in search of black bears. Naturally, Avello Spa and nearby Jack Nicklaus- and Arnold Palmer-designed courses will appeal to parents, but there are plenty of activities that are sure to thrill all ages, including fishing, hiking and horseback riding. The hotel also offers Whistler Kids at the Westin (eighteen months to four years), the seasonal Teddy Bear Daycare (30 months to five years) and Summer Adventure Camp (five to ten years), as well as the SPG Kids Pass, an all-inclusive dining program with children in mind. For those who decide to buck the summer vacation tradition and head here once the snow falls, there are miles of ski trails for all levels.
