Snow skiing is one of the major attractions in the Poconos.
The Pocono Mountains have been drawing visitors to their forests, lakes and world-class resorts for generations. The attractions offer year-round entertainment, relaxation and outdoor adventures for visitors of every age. Golf, tennis, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, fishing and water skiing are just a few activities the mountains have to offer. In winter, snow is the main event, with snow-skiing packages being one of the most popular winter getaways. From family vacations to romantic honeymoons, resorts in the Poconos are among the most favored destinations in the United States.
It is all about family and kids on a wet and wild vacation at the Great Wolf Lodge Poconos Water Resort. This 100-acre resort features an indoor water park with a kids pool, wave pool, lazy river, water slides, a water roller coaster and a 12-level water fort where kids and parents can splash and play the day away. Guests can relax in family suites, or choose a kid-themed cabin, cubs den or KidKamp Suite with video games, another television for the kids and separate sleeping area for Mom and Dad. Mom will enjoy the luxurious spa treatments at Elements Spa Salon, while the little ladies might indulge in a manicure, pedicure or facial at Scooops Kids Spa. Area adventures include whitewater rafting and canoeing through Lehigh River Gorge State Park, paintball, golf and winter sports at the area ski resorts.
