Put down the Excedrin. Choosing a trip for the kids, the in-laws and your rowdy cousins doesn't have to be a migraine in waiting. It's easy for everyone to get behind these locations, which are loaded up with scenic hikes, record-breaking water slides, kid-friendly golf courses (and shhh, we snuck in a few nearby wineries for your vacation within the vacation). 
 
 
 
 

Welk Resort

            
With a pool worthy of a waterpark, you'll be hard-pressed to get the kids to leave Branson, Missouri's Welk Resort, tucked into the Ozark Mountains — but with Branson's nearby Silver Dollar City Amusement Park (modeled after an 1880s mining town) and a neon light-lit strip (a family-friendly version of Las Vegas!) lined with theaters and comedy halls, we think you'll manage.

Trout Lodge

                
Ready to go back to camp? The YMCA serves up some of the best — and most affordable — sites for outdoor fun. This one is perched in Missouri's Eastern Ozarks and overlooks the vast Sunnen Lake. The family-friendly accommodations include buffet-style meals and adjoining two-bedroom cabins that share a common room.Details: Prices start at $149 per night for one adult and each additional adult is $59. Kids 6 through 17 are $49 and those 5 and under are free. Includes all meals and most activities.Book it: Call 888-386-9622 or go to ymcaoftheozarks.org. Browse the offerings at ymca.net to find a camp near you or in a locale you'd like to visit.




Royal Caribbean Cruise

              
For a big-boat cruise that caters to everyone in your brood, consider Royal Caribbean's new Harmony of the Seas, which also happens to be the biggest ship to ever set sail. On board you'll find 16 restaurants, an ice skating rink, a zip line and the world's tallest slide at sea. NBD.Details: Prices start at $889 for seven nights and vary by ship.Book it: Call 866-562-7625 or go to royalcaribbean.com.




Smugglers' Notch

               
The slopes along this Vermont hot spot are just as fun during warm sunny months as snowy cold ones — and the prices are lower too. Adults can choose between getting a massage or taking a zip line canopy tour, while the kids can hop onto the resort's free shuttle bus bound for skate camp, theater workshops or one of four water parks.Details: Prices start at $260 to $500 per night for a family of four in a one-bedroom condo, and includes most activities.

Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa

               
This Oahu, Hawaii-based Disney destination offers an island experience filled with faces your kids will love seeing, like Mickey and Minnie.

Steamboat Springs

              
With spectacular scenery, luxurious amenities, and a full roster of fun, these slopes in Colorado make for just as great of a getaway when they're snow-free. Fill your days with less strenuous (but equally entertaining) activities like fly-fishing and soaking in hot springs.Details: Prices vary depending on which of the 150 lodging properties you choose.Book it: Visit steamboat.com.

The Hotel Hershey

                   
As soon as your children approach the front desk of this Hersey, Pennsylvania-based resort, they'll be asked one of the best questions of their young lives: Do you want milk or dark chocolate?

The exclusive Hersheypark and Cocoa Clubhouse.Details: Prices start at $349 per night for a queen guest room.Book it: Call 844-330-1711 or visit thehotelhershey.com.
