Growing up, my family didn’t travel much. On the rare occasions when my family took a road trip, often to visit family members who lived in other states, we stayed at budget roadside motels and lodges. It wasn’t until I was in my 30s that I ever visited a luxury resort. And, I am just going to say, sometimes the splurge is worth the cost. We surveyed our well-traveled team of family travel writers and asked them for their favorite splurge-worthy luxury travel destinations that are worth saving up for. Start saving your pennies (and Benjamins) for a visit to these splurge worthy luxury resorts located in the United States and Canada.
