Summer break is here, but not for much longer!
If you have exhausted the usual list of summertime activities to keep your family preoccupied, you're not alone. While setting up a pool in the backyard or bringing movie night outside is a fun way to enjoy the warmer months, there's nothing like getting out of town to create lifelong memories.
And while theme parks like Universal Studios (whose epic new Harry Potter attraction opens this summer at Universal Orlando Resort) and Disney (whose Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens this summer at Disneyland) are always popular family destinations, we went looking for the hidden gems that strike the perfect balance of fun in the sun for the kiddos, and ultimate relaxation for the grown folks.
Whether you are looking to stay in the U.S. or venture to Europe or the Caribbean, we're excited to share a few of our favorite family friendly resorts below. Half the fun of taking any vacation is actually planning it—so, happy planning friends!
Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs
Live it up at Margaritaville's first West Coast location! There's two pools for the kiddos to play in, a soothing spa oasis for mom to get some Me Time and plenty of spots for dad to enjoy an iced cold beer or margarita. Plus, you don't even have to leave the resort as there are six Margaritaville-inspired dining options!
