No. 1 Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, FL
This historic golf-and-tennis resort also offers biking, lagoon excursions, and horseback riding. For little kids, however, the tried-and-true pleasures of a playground, a pool, and easy beach access may prove most popular. For a sweet pick-me-up, head to The Gourmet Shop, where an innovative chef churns out homemade ice cream in heavenly flavors like crème brûlée, chocolate-coconut, and violet.
