Best Resorts for Family Reunions
Sun Valley Resort
Sun Valley, Idaho
America’s first four-season destination resort—founded in 1936 by a railroad tycoon and an Austrian count—is a family magnet in summer: there are 35 miles of paved bike trails, chairlifts to the scenic peak of Mount Baldy, and a year-round skating rink that’s hosted Olympians Scott Hamilton and Sasha Cohen. Kids flock to the six-lane bowling alley and the heated pools, which open to the fresh mountain air.
Guest Tip: The Leishmans have made the trek from their home in Bountiful, Utah, for 57 consecutive years; they book rooms in the apartment-style condos a quick walk from the main lodge. “The condos are great for families because they have full kitchens and laundry facilities, and bike paths winding around them,” says Nate Leishman. “On summer evenings you can hear the Sun Valley Symphony right outside your door.”
