The perfect family trips and holidaying experience are achieved when activities are suited for every family member. For this reason, if you intend to have the best time with your family, pick a resort that features events and activities for all age groups, from children to adults.
With an almost century-old track record of hospitality, Skytop Lodge is your best bet. Skytop Lodge is located in the Pocono Mountains, a rich terrain suitable for all kinds of outdoor activities. If hiking or skiing is not your thing, perhaps you will find the Vegas-style lifestyle of the Poconos more appealing.
The Poconos is an area consisting of a series of flat-topped mountains, with the Catskill mountains to the northeast. The Pocono Mountains are bordered by the Delaware river and Water Gap to the east, Lake Wallenpaupack to the north, Wyoming Valley and the Coal Region to the west and the Lehigh mountain to the south.
These geographical features make the Poconos hike-worthy and one of the most sought-after recreational destinations in the country. The view from the mountain-tops is a masterpiece waiting to be photographed. Despite being known for its natural reserves, the Poconos is just as enjoyable at night. From skiing to gambling — the fun never stops. If you are more inclined to play poker and try your luck at the slot machine, the casinos are yet to disappoint.
Physical casinos in Pennsylvania only became legal a few years ago, but they are up to standard. With only a population of 3,000 residents, the demand for casinos in the area is mainly driven by tourists and visitors. One of the commonly asked questions by our guests is, “How many casinos are in the Poconos?” There are two major casinos in the Poconos and a few noteworthy ones bordering the community.
So, what is the best casino in the Poconos area? We will go over three of them:
The Mount Airy Casino is one of the most popular in the Pocono Mountain region. If you were blindfolded and led by the hand into Mount Airy, you couldn’t tell the interior apart from what you had seen in the movies. The casino features around 1,700 of the most in-demand slot games and over 70 table games, ensuring players are treated to their choice and not the available ones.
The casino’s all-new sportsbook provides bettors with the most luxurious viewing pleasure on match day. With lots of spacious grounds and designated smoking areas, you can take a breather after intense gaming sessions by going for walks or lighting a cigar. Other features include state-of-the-art dining, a poker room, a player’s club, cash advance and credit. In addition, the casino is open 24/7 and only a 19-minute drive away from Skytop Lodge, so you don’t have to worry about the distance.
Sitting magnificently on 400 acres on the hillside of Plains is Pennsylvania’s first legal, physical casino, the Mohegan Sun Pocono. The Mohegan’s casino floor is the largest in the area, with 82,000 square feet of fun waiting to be had. You have plenty of games to choose from their over 1,900 slot machines and 50+ table games. Other attractions include sports wagering, poker and casino credit.
If you want to hang out with fellow luxury players while at it, there is the high-limit slot room and private lounges. Non-smokers and smokers have an equal go at the facilities on the casino floor, as about half the gaming space is allotted to each group.
What’s particularly impressive about Mohegan’s policy is its dedication to curbing gambling addiction, with a subsection of its website dedicated to educating players. If the 55-minute journey to the Mohegan doesn’t mean much to you, you should look into the Momentum rewards program because you will be tempted to visit again.
Although not located in the Poconos, Wind Creek is worth a mention. Wind Creek in downtown Bethlehem offers an even bigger space with over 140,000 square feet of gaming floor and more variety than the previously mentioned casino. Boasting a mind-blowing 3,000+ slot machines, 150 table games and live dealer stadium gaming, Wind Creek may just be where you discover your winning moment.
As of this moment of writing, the Wind Creek Bethlehem’s jackpot total for the day was a staggering $280,000. You can watch your favorite teams and fighters on the massive 21-panel TV wall of the Sportsbook as they win you money.
At Wind Creek, every social class is welcome. The poker room, although temporary, features Bad Beat Jackpot, Limit Hold’em, Stud and Omaha and Texas Hold’em. A newer and more luxurious poker room is under construction and will be unveiled soon.
And, if you are feeling wound up and need a place to unwind, you can party at any of the three nightclubs within the gaming premises with your partner and pals. Make sure you have the perfect playlist for the journey, as Wind Creek is a 62-minute drive from Skytop Lodge.
Since 1928, Skytop Lodge has provided unbeatable hospitality and has always been the preferred resort location for tourists and visitors. The resort is built on 5,550 acres of natural goodness, providing families of all ages and sizes with incredible holiday experiences. Skytop’s services and on-ground activities are structured so that you and your family can witness every imaginable happy emotion, putting smiles on your faces for that memory-lasting pic.
For wedding ceremonies, business retreats, meetings or family reunions, Skytop is the destination. Our facilities are incomparable for the terrain; whatever your recreational choices, Skytop has got you covered.
Activities range from family-friendly games like paintball, arrow tag, tennis and skiing to events like fishing, axe throwing and wobble trap. Complementary to resort guests are the discounted rates for using the golf course. You can access the golf course for only $30, depending on the time of the day, week and year.
Do you fancy the rich history of the lodge, the privacy and modern look of the Inn or the views from the cottages? Regardless of your preferences, be prepared to be spoiled.
