Although The Inn at Dos Brisas is a more ideal setting for a romantic getaway or weekend of R&R, the Texas hotel does offer a few perks for the kids in your life. If you happen to travel with a few under-agers, don’t fret about keeping them occupied during your massage hour. During the day, children can borrow mountain bikes, fishing gear and board games from the front desk for free; the 300-acre ranch has plenty of pathways and a lake to explore that could keep any kid (or adventurous adult) busy for hours. Or you can schedule a variety of activities to keep your youngsters happy, including cooking and gardening classes, horseback riding and fishing lessons and a horse-drawn carriage ride through the inn’s grounds. In the evening, borrow a telescope and let the kids stargaze up at the clear Texan sky; without the light pollution of the big cities (the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is one hour from Houston, two from Austin), you can see for miles.
