Southern charm meets world-class elegance at the Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. This grandiose lodge, which has welcomed discerning guests and even presidents since the 18th century, maintains its reputation as a prime escape. Take it easy on a cruise around the lazy river as the children ride the many waterslides, or indulge in a mud wrap at the spa before relaxing in the adults-only pool. Later, drive a short way to the Jefferson Pools, where the wooden building that covers the naturally warm spring dates back to 1761.
