Alternative to Gulf Coast Family Vacation???

Jump to last reply

After much deliberation, we decided to cancel our annual family vacation to the Alabama Gulf Coast due to the oil spill. We are really disappointed because we've always had a fantastic time there, but we were just too concerned about what the situation might be like in 30 days... We are looking for another vacation idea (doesn't have to be a beach) - here are our requirements:

1. Within driving distance (8 hours or so) from New Orleans.
2. Condo with full kitchen.
3. Nice pool area with water slide (lazy river a plus)
4. 3 or 4 sites to see - we don't just relax by the pool the whole time...
5. Activities appropriate for young kids (ages 2, 3, 4, 7), 4 parents, and 2 grandparents.
6. Not Orlando - just went.

We've found some great hotels that meet our requirements, but not condo's. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Kim
