Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
Classically posh guest rooms and top-notch service in two towers facing the Gulf of Mexico. There’s big-deal golf here, plus a gorgeous beach. The Nature’s Wonders program, for all ages, has nine aquariums, a butterfly garden, naturalist-led outings, and a lab with microscopes—just right for budding marine biologists.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
