Spring holidays provide families a chance to rejuvenate and enjoy time together. Here are five ideas to consider:

1 WESTIN LAKE LAS VEGAS RESORT & SPA, HENDERSON, NEVADA

This sunny resort is just a free shuttle ride away from the glitzy Las Vegas Strip. Enjoy a family getaway that includes pedal boarding, paddle boarding and kayaking on the 320-acre lake, plus poolside fun with a giant slide, dive-in movies and a Kidcabana. Golfers will want to sample the newly renovated Reflection Bay course, a Jack Nicklaus signature track that offers red rock and lake vistas.

2 WILD DUNES RESORT, CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

Stay on a lush barrier island and pair nature outings and resort relaxation with the best of Charleston. Sign up for a guided kayak tour through the low country salt marshes, where wildlife is plentiful. Stop at a hammock-strewn island where you can relax or take a swim. Play golf or tennis at the resort before heading into town for a photography tour.

3 ARIZONA BILTMORE, PHOENIX

With a full renovation completed, this historic resort offers a wealth of experiences for families. From scavenger hunts and water balloon games to desert hikes and kids' fitness challenges, there is something for every age group. Sample a carrot cake facial, or enter the field-goal kicking contest.

Berenstain Bears fans will want to stop at the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature to see exhibits featuring the series creators. Make a stop at the Grace Museum to see more than 1,500 works by artists with Texas connections, as well as a giant Operation game to encourage discovery-based learning.

5 SPRING TRAINING

From now through March and into April, enthusiastic baseball fans head to warmer climes to watch their favorite players work out the kinks.
