Whistler's Winter Family Wonderland

Canada's British Columbia is known for its winter scenic terrain and family-friendly skiing on the two adjacent mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb. These slopes can accommodate some 12,000 skiers a day on dozens of trails with short waits in the numerous lift lines.

Whistler Village

Especially appealing for families, It's a winter wonderland of family adventure.Whistler Village offers the most slope-side lodging accommodations in North America. The village, nestled at the foot of the mountains, is a car-free zone and offers walking paths and over 300 shops, eateries, and lodging accommodations.

Activities

Tours of the snowy Whistler back country areas are available by dog sled, by snowshoes, and also by sitting cozy and warm in horse-drawn sleighs.

For cross-country ski buffs the Lost Lake Trails are a 10-minute walk from most village accommodations. The trail system includes 20 miles of groomed trails; nearly 3 miles are lit for nighttime Nordic rambles. Equipment rental and trail passes are available at several shops in the village.

     The next day after a Katie makes friends with a sea cucumber at Hideaway Beach.light breakfast at the hotel, we walked just past the St. Regis Princeville Resort entrance to a public pathway down to Hideaway Beach, a secluded public beach. Walking down the path can be tricky at times, especially after a rain but the slippery slope offers hand tied ropes as a railing to hold on to. The beach is spectacular.

      We snorkeled at this beach every morning and viewed the coral playground filled with purple sea cucumbers and the Hawaiian Trigger fish, Humuhumunukunuku apua'a.

      A short drive toward the coast is Kauai’s northern-most point and the historic Kilauea Lighthouse. Celebrating its 100th year, the scenic lighthouse was recently refurbished. This area is also a preserve for hundreds of sea birds. You can often spot whales, seals, dolphins and sea turtles at the point.

Aulani-Hawaii's Disney Family Beach Adventure

 
    The Aulani Disney Resort is a fantasy playground both for kids and adults. Guests float and snorkel on the surface of the resort’s 165,000-gallon saltwater playground. As the fish swim about in schools below, you and the kids can observe underwater statues and animals from above. It’s great for people who’ve never snorkeled before.
    Our daughter enjoyed a day of gentle snorkeling without waves, strong currents or sharks. You’ll find the It's family fun at Aulani Disney Resort on Oahu, Hawaii.calm environment perfect for children of all ages who are able to float and swim. The fish are tame and friendly with the swimmers. Guests who don’t want to enter the water can watch the fish from two viewing windows, with fish feeding scheduled two times a day.
     A fun family activity we enjoyed was the interactive hand-held electronic touch-screen device. It’s like a mini iPad with “Auntie” as the tour guide. Auntie guides families around the resort in search of the legendary menehune, the Hawaiian "little people." With a push of a button, guests learn about local folklore.
    We especially liked walking around the JW Marriott to a beach where we viewed sea turtles and Monk seals playing in the warm waters.

Cozumel Island Adventure – Family Island Getaway
Horseback Vacation in Cozumel

       We are riding on horseback through the jungles surrounding El Cedral, a small village, which boasts an ancient Mayan shrine dating back to 900 AD. We find several places to buy homemade blankets, at $3 each, and a man selling soda pop out of a cooler. We spot an iguana perched high in a wild mango tree and we see numerous underground caves where the Mayan Indians used to live.

My children and I have opted to view Cozumel by horseback but we know it’s an island off the Yucatan Peninsula best known for its underwater diving. The quaint town of San Miguel attracts 50 percent of the country’s cruise passengers, making it the third largest destination

Seagulls and herons fly overhead and brightly colored birds sit in the trees lining the beach.  Along the shoreline, hundreds of bumblebee jellyfish, so called because they are the color and size of bees, clog the waters. Our horses seem unconcerned about the jellyfish as they splash along the water’s edge.
