A resort fit for all the family

Q&A

April 20, 2008|By San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News)

Can you recommend any family resorts that would provide a multigenerational vacation?

Here are a few we can suggest:

Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort (hiltonhawaiianvillage.com) in Waikiki, Hawaii: There are plenty of programs and demonstrations on Hawaiian culture, and kids will enjoy the daily wildlife feedings of penguins, turtles, ibis and carp. While parents learn to make leis or play the ukulele (or just lounge on the beach), kids can join full- or half-day programs in the Express Keiki Club.

Barton Creek Resort & Spa (barton creek.com) in Austin, Texas: This resort has four golf courses, tennis courts, a full-service spa and a kids' club offering nature walks, educational programs and crafts.

The Tyler Place Family Resort (tyler place.com) in Highgate Springs, Vt.: This resort has programs designed for three toddler age groups, starting as early as newborns, and programs for kids and teens that include indoor and outdoor swimming, a climbing wall, gymnastics and nature hikes. For adults, there's family fishing, farm tours and health and fitness programs.

We're planning to visit Munich, Salzburg and Prague over an eight-day period. What's the best way to visit these cities?

Train travel is popular and relatively simple throughout Europe. We suggest you try a site like raileurope.com or railpass.com, both of which sell tickets online.

We found one-way fares of $44 between Munich and Salzburg and $104 between Salzburg and Prague, both for second-class travel, at Raileurope. Railpass had a combined fare of $132 for the two routes, also for second class.
