Sun- and adrenaline-filled family vacations are hotter than ever.

Hot-Spring Hopping in Central Florida

1 of 11

This easy-access region averages winter highs around 73, plus has more than 240 days of sunshine a year and 700 freshwater springs—the most in the world. Each of the crystal-clear springs maintains a year-round 72-degree temperature. Blue Springs State Park ($6), 40 minutes from Orlando, is a winter favorite among scuba divers, snorkelers, and manatees alike, while hiker, kayaker, and riverboat passengers can look for endangered species like the Florida scrub jay.

Stay: Orlando’s posh Waldorf Astoria (from $199) shares pool access with the neighboring Hilton, so kids can use its lazy river and waterslides.
