All Aboard

Something for everyone—is that too much to ask in a family vacation? We don’t think so! If the kids want to surf, the grandparents head to the pool, mom books a spa treatment, and dad plays golf, these days it’s easier than ever to please everybody. Top resorts on every coast are catering more to multigenerational families who are vacationing together. Group activity lists are growing, and so are the rooms, the dining options, and the deals. We found 10 destinations that make family travel a breeze. Spread the word: This year’s reunion is on the beach!
