Beach Getaways

South Seas Island Resort
Captiva, Florida

This resort sits on 2 1/2 miles of private coastline, where your brood can collect seashells, take a dolphin cruise, or splash in 20 pools. Snag free time by enrolling your kids, ages 6 to 13, in an ecology-based class at Sanibel Sea School. Southseas.com

Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort
Panama City Beach, Florida

Scoop up a one- to three-bedroom villa (with a kitchen) and hit the waves. When the kids are feeling waterlogged, head to the tennis courts or nine-hole golf course. Resortcollection.com

Traveling with extended family? Book this new, all-suite resort not far from Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort. Groveresortorlando.com

The Garland

Nature Retreats 

Loews Ventana Canyon Resort

After hiking at Sabino Canyon (a free shuttle takes you there), cool off at the pool, where staff hand out fruit and smoothies. Four- to 12-year-olds can feed fish and take an ecology walk at the Coyote Kids Club while you get a spa treatment. Loewshotels.com
