Beaches Family Resort

Recently, I learned about Beaches Resorts from MomCentral. Actually, I knew about Beaches but always thought is was a couples destination, as opposed to a family retreat. I was not only pleased to see how beautiful and upscale the resorts look, but as a parent, I was THRILLED to see that a sponsor of Sesame Street, the resorts offer a bunch of events with their favorite characters. Activities include Sesame Street Stage Shows, Story Time with Elmo, Baking with Cookie Monster, Dancing with Zoe, and more. Kids can even eat breakfast with their favorite Sesame Street friends too! I wish this had been around when I was wealthy and I know my kids would think they'd gone to heaven if we had been lucky enough to visit Beaches.

If your children, like mine, are well beyond the Sesame Street years, not to worry. Though each of the four different Beaches destinations features different adventures, you can be sure everyone will be Waterpark satisfied. The Negril, Boscobel and Turks & Caicos locations have Pirates Island Water Parks with gigantic waterslides, kid-friendly pools and swim-up soda bars. Supervised kids camps for all ages are available at all destinations, from newborns to tweens and teens. Kids can also take advantage of the Crayola Art Camps and an Xbox 360® Game Garage, featuring the latest video games the entire family can enjoy. Here's hoping they get a WII too, maybe with a WII Fit game.

There's plenty of fun to be had for parents as well. Included in the all-inclusive price is luxurious accommodations, up to ten restaurants (kids-oriented and adults-only), access to the spa as well as activities like scuba diving and golf (additional cost).

And here's the best part - Beaches just announced the unique WonderFALL Celebration, taking place during the off-peak season months of September and October. Not only do you get to enjoy everything Beaches offers year-round but you can SAVE up to 45% off** published rates and get 2 Nights Free**(on stays of 7 nights or more).

As part of this WonderFALL Celebration, Beaches has a great fall line up of special events and activities. From even more Caribbean Adventures with Sesame Street® that includes the premiere of a brand new stage show and a new activity with Abby Cadabby, exclusive Gordon and Elmo live performances and special parenting workshops hosted by Sesame educators, to Dive In Movies, "Baby You're A Star Photo Contest"( where your baby or toddler could win the chance to be featured in the next Beaches brochure) and even a celebration for Grandparents, it's all happening this FALL at Beaches family resorts.

Now all I need to know is, who is going to pay for our vacation to Beaches. Oy, do I need one!
