When you think of an all-inclusive vacation, your mind probably heads straight for the Caribbean. You don't need to leave the country to enjoy an all-in-one getaway though. While most U.S. properties are not all-inclusive, some resorts provide packages and plans with accommodations, meals and activities included in one easy price. These are our favorites. Find more all-inclusive resorts in the U.S. and other destinations here: All Inclusive Resorts for Families.

Be sure to take a look at our 10 Best Dude Ranches for Families, as most dude ranches also offer nearly all-inclusive deals or accommodations.

Omni Mount Washington Resort - New Hampshire

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
781 Family Reviews
We've seen the Omni Mount Washington Resort likened to a cruise ship in the mountains because it offers just that much to do, all in one place. While it's not all-inclusive, the resort features indoor and outdoor pools (in a heated complex), family activities throughout the day, a kids' club, an alpine club for young skiers in the wintertime, and an adventure center for summer activities. A number of accommodations are available with various room types to meet the needs of all family sizes. Kids stay free in all rooms at the Mount Washington Hotel. Select a dining package to include meals and make the visit more all-inclusive.

Napili Kai Beach Resort - Hawaii

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
184 Family Reviews
With tropical beach resorts, you’d think Hawaii would offer all-inclusive options like those scattered about the Caribbean, but alas, it is not to be. However, Napili Kai Beach Resort on the island of Maui tries to come close. Kids activities are provided free of charge during the summer and peak seasons, kids 12 and younger eat free, and the resort is one of a few that does not charge a resort fee, meaning parking, beach gear and Wi-Fi are all free. The resort prides itself on its intimacy and family-friendly environment and it shows in the number of guests who return year after year.

Tyler Place Family Resort - Vermont

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
125 Family Reviews
Tyler Place's formula for good, old-fashioned family fun features morning and evening children's programs with afternoons free for families to bike, hike, canoe and sail together. Little ones fish for perch and play dress-up; preschoolers listen to stories and jump on trampolines; and grade-school kids go on nature hikes, participate in gymnastics and put on marionette shows. Tweens take to zip lines and go on fishing trips while teens add bicycle trips and water skiing. The accommodations, whether in the resort's Inn rooms or cabins, tend toward basic, but are comfortable.

Woodloch Pines - Pennsylvania

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
872 Family Reviews
Located on 1,200 acres of land, Woodloch Pines traces much of its success to a decision not to host a children's program. Instead, the lakefront Poconos resort provides much for families to enjoy together. In the summer, guests can water-ski, kayak, sail, bike, hike, play mini-golf and swim in indoor and outdoor pools. Join in family Olympics, cookouts, scavenger hunts and karaoke, too. In the winter, go snow tubing, ice-skating and fishing. Room rates come with meals and most activities. The two- to five-bedroom Guest Homes may be rented with or without a meal plan.

Mountain Sky Guest Ranch

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
26 Family Reviews
This western dude ranch is so much more than a traditional dude ranch. Visit the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch and you'll ride horses, fish, hike and enjoy the great outdoors, but you'll also enjoy so much more. This upscale dude ranch also features gourmet dinners, wine and cheese hours, private cabins, and more to make you feel like you're enjoying the Wild West in style and comfort. Kids' programming will keep the children happy, and the entire family will enjoy the mountain air and dude ranch's rugged location.

Rocking Horse Ranch - New York

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
689 Family Reviews
A unique family getaway is a ranch resort vacation, and for families in the East who can't get out to the ranches in the West, they can turn to Rocking Horse Ranch. Just 90 minutes north of New York City, the dude ranch is all-inclusive resort and offers exactly all the fun one would expect on a ranch resort: horseback riding, bonfires and hiking. And with more than 100 rooms to choose from, guests won’t need to sleep in the rough. Also included in the price is a kids' camp. The resort regularly offers great promotions and package deals, too.

Migis Lodge - Maine

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
34 Family Reviews
We’re almost afraid to list Migis here, as it’s a gem of a property that is a well-kept secret and we kind of like that about the lodge. Still, it’s a fantastic “Full American Plan” getaway option for families with wonderfully styled and luxurious cabin accommodations, daily meals, and a number of activities and kids’ programs included. Kids can learn to water ski (included!), fish, swim, kayak and more, as well as enjoy special children’s activities and the Children’s Zoo in the evenings. Families will also love the Lobster Bakes and Island Cookouts.

Mohonk Mountain House - New York

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
443 Family Reviews
Rock scrambles, carriage rides, woodland hikes, trout fishing, lake swims and campfires with S'mores are just some of the activities featured at Mohonk Mountain House, a 265-room National Historic Landmark resort. Sprawled on 2,200 acres in the Catskills, the castle-like resort also offers a complimentary kids' club for ages 2 to 12, and a teen program for those ages 13 to 17. Young kids can ride ponies, sail on boats and go on frog hunts while older ones can choose from tennis, hiking, orienteering and other activities.

The Grand Hotel - Michigan

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
531 Family Reviews
A grande dame property, the resort, dubbed America's summer palace, dates back to 1887 when wealthy families arrived for vacations by steamer. Families still arrive by boat and are usually met by a horse-drawn carriage, as motorized vehicles remain prohibited. Part of the old-fashioned fun is getting around by bicycles or by foot. Although not a traditional all-inclusive, The Grand Hotel's rates include a full breakfast and dinner, plus supervised children's activities for ages 5 to 14, Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Club Med Sandpiper Bay

TripAdvisor Rating: TripAdvisor Owl
1847 Family Reviews
Located in sunny Florida, this is America's only Club Med resort. It makes the cut for its renowned amenities and activities, all included in the price. The resort features three swimming pools, an 18-hole golf course, an International Tennis Academy and kids' programs for all ages, from infants to teens. The resort's 337 rooms are divided between seven buildings along the St. Lucie River. Families can dine in three onsite restaurants and one casual sports bar, with the Marketplace restaurant featuring its Baby Corner for children to play in during dinner.
