On the Riviera — Mayan Style
Cancun may be a choice destination for Spring Breakers, and singles, but there’s a resort area a 45-minute drive south along the Yucatan Peninsula that is growing fast, and offers much for family vacations — the Riviera Maya. (read the story...)

Washington D.C. — A Spy's Eye View
Going to D.C. for the weekend should not be a hard sell to the kids, but a certain 14-year-old preferred to go to the beach rather than take yet another visit to the nation’s capital. Too bad — she missed out on new attractions. (read the story...)

Family Travel: Vermont for all seasons
Going to Vermont in winter is a no-brainer – lots of snow and skiing options. Summer also has its charms, with plenty of bike paths and lakes. In fall, you can’t beat the foliage.

The Chincoteague pony swim:Play Misty For Me
At the age of 9, I probably could have recited most of Marguerite Henry’s book, Misty of Chincoteague, from memory. Horses, at the time, were my passion — I rode them, read about them, drew them, and would have done just about anything to have one of my own. I fantasized about participating in the annual roundup and "pony swim" between the islands of Assateague and Chincoteague, Va., and about buying one of the ponies at auction the following day (never mind that we would have to find space for the pony in our little townhouse in Bronxville). It never happened, and gradually I turned my attention to other things. But when I got an opportunity, at the age of 41, to finally see the annual July pony-penning for myself, I was as excited as a child. (read the story...)

Florida Road Trip Begets the Real Thing
The birth of Baby Road Trip, a new edutainment video series that (so far) extols the wonders of beach and jungle destinations, was not easy. But it continues to be a creative challenge with which husband-and-wife co-founders Laura and Shawn Kronen are thrilled. (read the story...)

O Canada!
The first time I saw a photograph of Chateau Lake Louise sitting at the edge of an unimaginably turquoise lake and surrounded by the snow-covered Canadian Rockies, I knew I had to go there. My husband, our two sons (ages 16 and 13), and I finally made the trip last summer and discovered that the region is even more spectacular than we had imagined because no mere photograph can possibly capture its grandeur. (read the story...)

Head to the Hamptons!
You don’t need to rent or own a house in the Hamptons to enjoy summer fun with your family. We stayed at three resorts, and enjoyed wonderful amenities, excellent beaches, great dining, and family activities. (read the story...)

SpongeBob Makes a Splash!
You stand with your group under a huge bucket of “slime”, waiting anxiously for its contents to devour you in a pool of yellowy-green muck. Sound like a great vacation? Get with it, Mom and Dad! This is the kind of stuff adored by SpongeBob Square Pants fans. And Wyndham resorts hasn’t missed a beat. They have SpongeBob, Nickelodeon’s hottest cartoon character, as their current mascot.
