Top 4 Family Resorts in the South Fun For Children and Adults

The southeastern United States offers a wealth of family resorts that will appeal to adults and kids alike.  From the Smoky Mountains to the beaches of the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico, there are dozens of dedicated family resorts that will cater to your needs.  Next time you plan to travel, consider one of these top five.

Myrtle Beach is a popular vacation spot with several family resorts.  The Sea Mist Oceanfront Resort has dozens of activities for kids, including a lazy river and water park.  Adults will also enjoy the comfortable rooms and the proximity to the beach.  As far as family resorts, the Sea Mist is tops.

The Inn on Biltmore Estates is one of those family resorts that will pamper you and your kids.  There are activities to keep everyone busy, superb service at all hours of the day or night, and the main house will capture everyone’s imagination.  The outdoor activities nearby also help keep everyone fit, topping those offered by most family resorts.

New Orleans might not sound like a city with family resorts, but you might be surprised.  The Royal Sonesta in the French Quarter has a reputation for catering to the kids.  The city of jazz offers the Audubon Aquarium and the Audubon Zoo, and you can take the whole family on a cruise of the Mississippi.

Captiva Island in Florida has several family resorts and a reputation for a quieter vacation.  This is no party town, but there is plenty of fun to be had.  Check into the South Seas Island Resort and enjoy plenty of water activities, kids’ programs, shelling, and boating. 


Captiva’s sister island also has dozens of family resorts, but adults might campaign for the Casa Ybel Resort for the spa services.  Kids will still have plenty to do, too, and the beach is nearby for fun in the sun, making this a first-class choice.
