Located in the 13 destinations featured on this year’s Best Family Vacations in the USA ranking list, these kid-friendly hotels and campgrounds will help your family create memories that will be talked about for years to come. To find these kid-approved spots, we combed through our Best Hotels database to find the properties that offered the best amenities for youngsters and their parents. Some hotels are located on private islands or situated inside theme parks, while others boast their own waterslides or kids camps. Despite their varying amenities, they all have one thing in common: Each hotel ensures that families are the top priority. Here are standout places to take the crew this summer.
Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa
Designed with kids in mind, Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Honolulu provides families with kid-friendly pools, water play areas and its own snorkeling lagoon. There’s also a craft room, movie nights, a playground and Goofy-led dance parties at the pool. And when parents want to unwind at the spa or hit the links at the 18-hole Ko Olina Golf Club, kids ages 3 to 12 can be dropped off at the complimentary Aunty’s Beach House, the resort’s supervised activities club. When the gang is back together again, head to one of the resort’s 10 eateries.
