T+L Family 50 | 2004

You know what you want: the perfect setting, of course, plus terrific food, top-notch kids' programs, and a few indulgences for you while the troops are occupied. Look no further. We asked readers for their favorite family resorts in an on-line survey, and Harris Interactive tallied it all up. This year, we included Central and South America for the first time. Take a vacation, amigos!

CONTINENTAL U.S. AND CANADA: TOP 20

1 The Cloister 90.50
This secluded island retreat is proper enough to please G8 dignitaries, yet lively enough—think golf, tennis, and target shooting—to draw families back generation after generation. In the summer months, Camp Cloister serves up everything from scuba diving and sailing to etiquette classes. Teens, who by now should have learned their manners, dance the nights away by the bonfires.
