Make an Autumn Harvest Family Escape to Big Cedar Lodge, tucked into the Ozark Mountains just south of Branson, Mo., where the leaf-peeping should be grand. The resort, on Table Rock Lake, made Travel + Leisure's list of top U.S. family hotels, in its September issue. The package includes a two-night stay in your choice of accommodations (the resort has lodges, cottages and cabins with all the modern comforts), caramel apples on arrival, a fall-foliage wildlife tram tour in the 10,000-acre Dogwood Canyon Nature Park and a breakfast buffet at the Devil's Pool Restaurant. The package price, for a family of two adults and two kids, starts at $429. It's good through Nov. 30. To book, ask for the package by name at 800-225-6343.
