Family Fun Magazine has awarded Sanibel Island the number one destination for families in the entire country. View the Today Show clip above.

Family Fun magazine asked 2,000 families who travel with kids ages 3-12 to name their favorite getaways.
Here are some of their top picks:

1. Sanibel Island, Florida

This beautiful island off Florida’s Gulf Coast was voted the No. 1 overall destination.

“This town is famous for its laid back vibe, where families can just chill out and hang out. They also are known for more than 250 varieties of sea shells,” Mary Giles, deputy editor of Family Fun magazine, told TODAY’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.

The building code adds to the charm because structures on the island can’t be taller than the palm trees, so you won’t find any high-rises.

“Because the buildings aren’t tall, it’s such a quaint, beautiful place,” Hoda said.
