A few family favorites

One of our favorite beaches is nowhere near the ocean, but at the alpine Mondsee, not far from Salzburg, Austria. A laid-back recreation area includes killer water slides for the kids and a shady beergarden for the grownups.

SUMMIT COUNTY — If you’re a last minute vacation planner, check out a few of our favorite spots. They may not be the most famous on the tourist agenda, but we can vouch for good scenery, food and genuine experiences in all these locations. Check out our travel section for more.

Whether you’re a Colorado resident or visitor from out of state, the Upper Colorado River is a quiet haven in the shadow of bustling resorts like Vail and Breckenridge. We love camping at Rancho del Rio, a riverside spot featuring a bustling tiki bar, boat rentals and spacious campsites where dogs are allowed.
In Negril, Jamaica, Dylan befriended a lifeguard at the Xtabi Resort, who later invited him to go night diving for lobster, a great adventure for a 10-year-old.
Belize, baby! Leigh and I often dream of returning to the quiet strands of Caye Caulker and San Pedro.
Passau may not be as famous as nearby Munich or Vienna, but the city is at a remarkable confluence of three major rivers, the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube.
Texel, Holland, is not exactly a household world, but the extensive undisturbed dune system on the island is protected as a World Heritage site.
In Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Republic, Leigh and I spent the night in this boatel, which never leaves its moorings.
The town square of Piran, Slovenia.
