Family holidays are a lot more than a burger menu and a trip to the museum these days, as Travel & Leisure's 2013 'World's Best' awards show.
Top of the list of America's best family hotels was Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Florida. Kids can play a spot of lawn games, drop into a craft class, catch flounder with a sea-captain, ride a horse on the private beach, or improve their serve (tennis) or swing (golf).
Toddlers even have their own tees at the 18-hole Golden Eagle Golf Club at Tides Inn in Virginia (no. 7 on the list).
Daily story-time and free hot chocolate is on offer at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa in Colorado (no. 20).
The family rooms, three-acre water park, and the short stroll to the Epcot Center saw Disney's Beach Club Resort make no. 10.
However, what we really want to know is: can adults also opt for the pastry-scented kids' pedicure at no. 3 on the list, Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont?
