Delight in the serene ambiance by the poolside, where you can lounge amidst breathtaking views.

Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort: family-friendly resort with everything you didn’t know you needed. This resort offers so much more than just a nice place to rest your head. Just steps away from your suite, you’ll find dining, pools, waterfalls, cabanas, water slide, spa & salon, world-class golf, hiking trails and impressive event spaces.

One of my most memorable childhood Spring Break trips was to this resort – known then as The Pointe. I learned to swim on my own after taking the slide into the pool. I also experienced my worst sunburn on that trip, so don’t forget to apply and reapply throughout the day!

Fairmont Scottsdale Princess: This resort is not only a luxurious retreat but also a paradise for families. While parents indulge in spa treatments or tee off on the golf course, kids can partake in a plethora of exciting activities.
