Check out the New Kids' Club
Some vacations are meant for relaxation. Some, culture. And some deliver a suspension of reality and a taste of fantasy. That’s Atlantis. Indeed, there is something almost other-worldly about Atlantis and, according to visionary founder Sol Kernzer, that’s just what they were going for.
Macaroni Kid was recently invited to help celebrate the grand opening of Atlantis’s Kids Adventures (they call it "AKA"). As if there wasn't enough to do at this sprawling resort already . . . water slides and rides, tennis, golf, a beautiful beach, 18 restaurants ...
Now. Now! Now!!!

Though not a traditional "family" destination, this high-end resort has it all . . . rooms with full kitchens, a gorgeous infinity pool and a prime location on one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Add a buffet breakfast, afternoon tea ...
Aruba is an island worth putting high on your to-do list. One of the friendliest islands in the Caribbean, Aruba boasts white sand beaches, gorgeous water and reliably perfect weather.
The Westin Resort, located on Palm Beach, is seeking to entice families to visit this spring with a host of family-friendly activities including Movies Under the Stars, Fireside Storytelling, Stargazing with professional telescopes and a Little Chefs program. And, when mom and dad need some time alone, the Westin Kids Club will help keep those ages four through 12 entertained ...
