The deal: Starting at $148 per adult, per night, for a visit in October, a stay at this 1,200-acre resort in the Pocono Mountains comes with a rustic or contemporary room, a daily-changing menu with kidfriendly options, and a choice of dozens of outdoor activities.

Why we love it: It's impossible to be bored here. There's water-skiing, kayaking, sailing, swimming and hiking during summer, and snow tubing, snowshoeing and ice skating during winter. Mealtime serves up family bonding, with food presented on platters, meant to be passed around the table. This year, the resort unveiled a 9,000-square-foot open-year-round ice rink, a junior go-kart track for guests 48 to 58 inches tall, two escape rooms, and a Broadway- style show featuring themed acts such as Mardi Gras and the circus, in celebration of the resort's 60th anniversary.
