Summer has officially arrived. And with it comes a new round of packages offering fun for travelers of all ages.
For traditional family getaways, the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, in South Florida has a variety of activities, including its new Quest Club for kids.

The supervised camp runs daily from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m and offers, among other activities, soccer, yoga, tie-dying and stuffed-animal making, fishing, beachfront kite flying alongside the Kite Concierge, life-size lawn chess, golf and tennis.
The resort also has a surf school.
And this summer, kids receive complimentary buffet breakfast and lunch and dinner at 501 East when parents purchase a full-priced entree. Rooms start at $149 a night.
For a romantic couples getaway, the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park has launched a “Chef in the Park” luxury picnic for guests attending outdoor concerts at the park.
The package includes a pre-event menu consultation with a member of the hotel’s executive culinary team and special event manager to develop a personalized picnic that will be served to them in the park. The package starts at $600 for two guests, and includes parking at the hotel.
And for those looking for an over-the-top adventure, the Four Seasons Resort Maldives Kuda Huraa has created what it calls the “ultimate surfing fantasy.”
The package offers groups of up to eight a chartered seaplane for the day that will take them from the resort to as many secluded surf spots in the pristine Indian Ocean as they can access in a day. The package also includes an expert guide.
“What do you get when you cross Four Seasons Resort Kuda Huraa's epic surf team, secluded A-grade waves and a seaplane? Fantasy surfing beyond your wildest imagination,” the promotional statement said.
“With no agenda other than the pure, unadulterated sport they love, surfari adventurers can wave-ride to their heart's content, paddle back to the plane for refreshments, or decide to fly on to the next break to catch a dropping tide."
Rates start at $6,500.
The resort also offers through September a family package that gives 50% off a second guestroom, daily breakfast for two adults per room and a Shark Snorkel Safari.
