According to a Virtuoso survey of more than 1,000 travel advisors, multigenerational travel is the most popular vacation trend for 2019. Selecting a destination for summer travel that the whole family enjoys can be tricky. However, The Diplomat Beach Resort in South Florida – voted “One of the Top Resorts in Florida” by Condé Nast Traveler Readers in 2018 and “Best Family Resort” by the Travvy Awards in 2019 – is a family friendly destination that every generation can appreciate.

The property features endless amenities and activities including a kids’ club for the little ones (ages 4-12), an ultra modern spa for the parents to unwind, two sun-drenched pools, water sports and eight different culinary destinations with plenty of spots to grab cocktails. You’ll make memories that the family will recount for years to come.

Start the day with a relaxing morning walk on the beach or a vigorous core fitness training class lead by Dean Statler, and then grab a delicious fast casual breakfast at celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s CounterPoint. Book a treatment (or two) at The Diplomat Spa + Wellness, then open a book and relax at one of their gorgeous oceanfront pools. Parents can enjoy frozen cocktails in one of the poolside cabanas while kids laugh and play in the Splash Pad. Cool off with a treat from Candy & Cones, a sweets shop featuring freshly churned ice creams, customizable sundaes, a candy wall and much more.

End the day with dinner at OpenTable Diners’ Choice Award winner Diplomat Prime for a reimagined menu of prime beef aged in-house and seasonally-driven seafood dishes that the whole family will love.
