Where it is: Coastal Georgia (about an hour from Jacksonville or Savannah airports)
What it is: Tucked away amid Georgia's Golden Isles, Sea Island resort occupies its own island and boasts a rich 85-year history. The property melds Southern hospitality at its finest with tons of thoughtful, modern amenities that will appeal to families. Visitors can opt to stay at the Cloister or Lodge, or rent your own cottage or villa on the island. While five miles of private white sand beach are the main attraction, there's also tennis, squash, fishing, boating, dining, and spa amenities (hey, Mom's gotta have her fun too, right?).
Fun kid activities: Whether you prefer to drop your tots (ages 3-14) at Camp Cloister for a day of outdoor exploration, crafts, games, and more or embark upon a family bike ride or boat outing, Sea Island can accommodate your every whim. The Beach Club Theater shows (free!) family-friendly flicks, and on Tuesday and Thursday nights, get the whole family dressed up for the resort's bingo night tradition. Tweens and teens can partake in stand-up paddle boarding clinics, basketball or tennis tournaments, and their own fitness classes and spa treatments. You won't hear "I'm bored!" once the entire trip. We can almost guarantee it.
