Winter can be challenging for families since everyone has to remain cooped up indoors. It can cause people to go a little stir crazy. How about mixing things up a bit? We’ve got the best list for family fun and the perfect winter activities in the Poconos.
A perfect, undisturbed way to view the beauty of this region is by snowshoeing. Adventure through pristine woodlands draped in blankets of snow. Watch and listen for animals enjoying the winter weather. Promised Land State Park permits snowshoeing on all trails within the park. There are different places to rent snowshoes and purchase a guided tour if you’re new to this activity.
Indoor Family Fun Parks
Are you looking for a way to fight the winter blues for the whole family? Family fun parks are a great way to create memories with the entire family. You’ll find various options across the Poconos, from ninja warrior courses and boulder climbing walls at Poconos Rocks to trampolines and bounce houses at Pocolandia. Let the kids burn off energy and test their skills at whichever park they pick.
Head to an indoor waterpark where the temperature is always 84 degrees, and the water feels tropical and warm. The entire family can relax in the lazy river, conquer the towering slides, and splash around in the wave pool. The Poconos has a few different indoor waterparks to choose from, including Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia, Kalahari Resorts, and Great Wolf Lodge.
