Schools are canceled, kids climbing the walls, and mom and dad try to work from home while screening repeat episodes of any television show the kids will watch. Snow days: they're pretty, for sure, but they aren't exactly relaxing. In light of this East Coast whopper of a storm, we're sharing some photos of a place we'd rather be: Anguilla! Photographer Michael Edwards, whose credits include Sports Illustrated, Glamour and Vogue, recently spent time on the island while shooting supermodel Ashley Graham. He shared snaps from his stay at one of our favorite hotels, Malliouhana, and it's pretty much all we want to think about today. All photos courtesy of the immensely talented Michael Edwards.
Pool time, beach time, anywhere but digging out the stoop time...
Not so bad on the inside either....
We're big believers that nice rooms and an infinity pool only go so far. The people are what gives a resort its soul, and Malliouhana's got some of the best.
And a nod to our brave photographer, working hard and always taking things ever so seriously :-)

Family travel begins with the babymoon—a chance to slow down before the baby arrives, squeeze in a dream trip before more complicated travel logistics, or just lounge in an adults-only infinity pool while you can.

Tips on navigating Florida's most famous theme park with kids plus a bun in the oven.
Leave the heels at home, forget your make-up and tell the office not to call. Families looking for a true escape from city life are skipping the scene at the Hamptons, Nantucket and Malibu and succumbing to the lure of the American West. But it’s not just the drop-dead landscapes and pristine wilderness that are pushing the cowboy life to the top of everyone’s wish list.
June in New York is all about outdoor eats, rooftop drinks, festivals in the streets and movie nights with a view. Read on for our pick of city events to celebrate the start of summer… with and without the kids.
Last week we shared some of the best hotels for plotting a romantic escape to Italy. This week, we're focused on where to feed your love. In other words, these are the best spots to binge on fresh pastas, fish straight from the sea, and just about every other delicious delicacy that brings us back to Italy year after year. Bring the kids, book a sitter, do whatever it takes to live la dolce vita to the hilt (and worry about the diet later).
London is shrugging off its annus horribilis and rolling out the red carpet to visitors with a glut of luxury hotel openings from city veterans like Four Seasons and Soho House to newbies including the teams behind the Experimental Cocktail Club and NYC’s Gansevoort Hotel. The trends? The City (aka London's financial heart) is no longer just for business travelers, Shoreditch is still drawing the cool crowds, and Londoners love a members club. Read on for the new arrivals topping our London lust list.
Whether you're getting hitched or celebrating a few (or more) years of surviving marriage, few spots top Italy's Amalfi Coast for its combo of romantic hotels, drop-dead views and fantastic food. And though this Mediterranean paradise may be booked to capacity already for much of the summer, we're still squeezing in couples sneaking away for that perfect Italian escape. Here's how to do it up right.
Kitesurfing isn’t a new sport, but we’ve never seen so many requests for family trips that include kites, and not the fly-in-the-park variety. The follow-up question to where to kite surf is often: is there a kids’ club? Which makes sense, since the parent left in charge of the kids while the partner is off pursuing his or her passion is usually looking for a little downtime of their own. To help you fanatics out, we’ve mapped out our favorite resorts that have kitesurfing from their own beach, as well as a few others with the sport nearby.
