    We are looking at a last minute, hopefully cancellation to pop up in RCI, what are your favorite resorts or area for a family vacation? We are in Michigan and only looking to drive around 8-12 hours.

    Thanks everyone!

    We are also in Michigan, and have been to the Smokies (Sevierville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge) twice. We were at the older Wyndham both times, and enjoyed it.

    Hands down our favorite is Bluegreen's Wilderness Club at Big Cedar, in Ridgedale, MO (just south of Branson). It's a beautiful upscale resort and the larger units are really nice. There is a lot to do on the property if you like outdoor activities, as it's on the lake, with swimming, boating, fishing, pools, a lazy river, golfing, hiking, plus some very good restaurants. It's a great family destination (we don't even drive up to Branson).

    (We don't own there, but have traded in a few times.)

    You might check out resorts at Lake of the Ozarks. I liked the Four Seasons Racquet & Country Club, even though it has slightly dated decor
