When the weather cools the crowds leave the beach but the beach is still beautiful and there is still fun to be had at the Cape. We recently stayed at the fabulously remodeled Cape Codder Resort complete with a 30,000 square foot indoor water park,beach fun themed accommodations in the family suites adjoining the park and a sunny, open daily saltwater pool with falls and a hot tub. The resort looks small from the road but there are so many different types of rooms available. From simple hotel rooms to lavish suites all have access to the family fun water park. There are also a few restaurants on site serving up local New England favorites as well as a medi spa where tykes as young as 4 can have specific treatment such as mani/pedis with a parent present. When you are pickled as a prune from the waterpark head to the local attractions for a bit but be sure to spend time at the waterpark after dark when the theatrical thunderstorms roll in and bring a whole different level of effect to the park.
As a bonus there are a bunch of family friendly activities right nearby. Great for an impromptu weekend family getaway!
If you visit Disneyland, you might want to spend some time at the pool to cool off when you are not at the parks. Choosing a hotel with water slides or a miniature water park can enhance your family vacation. There are no hotels with large water parks in Anaheim, California, but the first three hotels on this list have themed pools or small water park facilities. The remainder of hotels on the list are good family friendly hotels with nice but standard pools. I’ve placed the hotels with the cooler pools, i.e., pools that also have kiddie wading pools, hotels with more than 1 pool, or pools with superb landscaping higher on the list.1. Disneyland Hotel
These orchards are great day trip destinations for picking apples and other seasonal fruit with the kids.1. Gabriel Farm
