For fall and winter luxury resort destinations, you can choose outdoor activities including skiing on the snow-capped mountains of Canada at Banff or salmon fishing and whale watching in Alaska, or enjoy the warm seasonal temperatures of Florida and California with a trip to Disneyland or Disney World. Spring and summer destinations in the Caribbean, California, and beyond also promise a great getaway, so when planning your vacation, choose a destination from among the top luxury resorts in the world, and you’re virtually guaranteed a good trip.
