Preparing Your Poconos Family Getaway

The mountains of the Poconos is such a beautiful region and is the perfect spot for a family vacation. Even in the mountains there are multitude of pleasing places hiding for you to explore.

Let me assist with your Pocono family trip and brief you with the lovely locations in the region.

The western regions of the mountains are covered with the Lehigh River Gorge, while the southern area has been surrounded and strikes the borders with a part of Kitattinny Ridge of the Appalachian Mountains. 

The eastern part of the mountains are covered as the Delaware River Region which flows from Pennsylvania to New Jersey, whilst the northern part is Upper Delaware River Region which flows from PA to New York and moreover, the drive from New York and Philadelphia just takes around 2 hours. 

If you are traveling from New York to the Poconos, the first thing you will pass through is the Delaware Water Gap with the curvy roads surrounded by stunning views of forested hills featuring one of the top most hiking trails. The next place in your route is Stroudsburg where you can stop for some amazing cuisines. 

Now that you have reached the beauty of Pennsylvania, it is time for you to decide the places where you should visit to have the most memorable days of your and your family’s life. Also don’t be confused about deciding what to do in the mountains as I’ll lead you to the best places and activities you may experience. 

Things to do in Poconos: Trip Ideas and More

Now that you have stepped foot in the regions, it is time for setting up your family friendly Poconos vacations. Not only for the romantic honeymoon atmosphere, the mountains are always ready for some adrenaline compelling activities and family oriented spots. In addition to it, there are several annual festivities and exquisite restaurants and various different activities.

Winter Plans in Poconos

Visiting Poconos in the Christmas season is such a blessing, as you may get to experience the various amazing activities present in the region. Now, would you like to have some outdoor fun? Then you are in luck because there are many fascinating things available like snow tubing, skiing, dog sledding and many more.

Get ready with your warmest clothes and boots as you may experience sliding down the frosty ways on horseback or snowboarding. If you don’t have skills on snowboarding or skiing, there are Skiing lessons available regardless of your age and experience. 

The children will love skiing alongside their family and it’ll create more bonds between your family. Moreover, the Pocono Mountain Water Parks will provide the right amount of excitement and soothing atmosphere for the children. Wave Pools, Waterslides and aquatic children’s obstacles are the key attractions in the waterparks. 

The winter is still open with many events across the region such as Wally Ice Fest, WinterFest in Downtown Stroudsburg and many more. These events will be perfect for a peaceful winter outing with your family. For adrenaline junkies out there, you can rent an ATV or UTV for your thrilling winter tour. 

Summer Plans in Poconos

It is time to explore the great outdoors of  Poconos in the summer. The natural beauty of the regions have made it a loving family getaway spot for decades. 

You may get in touch with nature through biking or hiking alongside the trails of the mountains in groups. As you continue your journey through the woods, you may witness the elegance of water falls like Bushkills Waterfalls, Raymondskill Falls, Dingman Falls and many more.

The parks and beaches of the regions are open for your sunny day with several kid-friendly swimming spots at several Pocono State Parks, for instance Palmyra Township beach, Tobyhanna State Park and more. The Costa’s Family Fun Park is perfect for miniature golf, bumper boats and go karts for the children as they will love it.

Paddle across the rivers of Poconos by canoe or kayaks or do white water rafting which is an ideal summer activity in the region. For fishing with some fascinating scenery, visit the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River which has been an all time favorite thing to do for families. 

Family Reunion Staycations in Poconos

Having a great place to stay while experiencing the thrilling activities is a mandatory feature. The staycations in the region are just as popular among all the other things to do in the mountains like Pocono resorts for families reunions, cottages and camping sites and it goes on like this.

Among the huge options of properties available, I’ve always felt comfortable and secure while staying in a mansion. Mansions are one of the best places to stay in the Poconos for families if you are planning your trip as a big group like a huge family reunion. Multiple families can stay together in a single mansion and even host a private party for them inside of it. 

However, if you are more comfortable staying alongside as a single family, then booking a    small home is the accurate option. As it is more affordable and cozy, and is even included with the best amenities and hospitality possible. The quality in your staycation won’t be uncompromised in the Pocono Mountains. 

For the families out there who wish to stay in the woods while being in touch with the serene nature, then camping or booking a treehouse is for you. You may see the constellations and hear the sound of nature calling while having a peaceful time with your family which will remain as one of your favorite memories forever.
