We're particularly interested in North Carolina. (We live in Florida - and it's easy to get to NC) but we're open to going anywhere.

If you want to come to California, check out http://www.montecitosequoia.com located near Sequoia National Park. I haven't stayed as I live close, but friends from LA love it!

If you are interested in NC why not post this in the NC forum. You'll probably get a much better response.

You might look into a dude ranch. They have all sorts of recreation, not just horseback riding, including white water rafting, bike riding, and climbing. Many have very nice accommodations, and wonderful food. The smaller environment is very intimate, and a wonderful place for families to reconnect. A lot of them have youth programs for your kids, to get them involved with the other children.

You can start with the dude ranchers association- www.duderanch.org. They can help you narrow down what you are looking for.

Check out the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City. They are the best rafting outfitter and have been there forever. Also, Cataloochee Ranch, but that is more of a horse place. No rafting. Although I am sure they will hook you up with a French Broad River rafting company. Have fun! Western North Carolina is beautiful.
