How To Plan The Perfect Poconos Family Vacation

May 24, 2018

If you’re thinking about planning a trip to the Poconos, get ready to eat, play and relax like never before. Here’s how to plan the perfect Poconos family vacation.

Pack for the Outdoors

Because you’ll probably be doing some outdoor activities while you’re here, pack clothes that you can layer and shoes you don’t mind getting muddy. Hikers should bring a lightweight backpack with room for water bottles, snacks and sunscreen. Don’t forget your swim suit if you plan on playing in the water or spending time at the spa. If rain is in the forecast, don’t let it ruin your vacation. When you stay in one of our cottages, embracing the weather can lead to some perfectly peaceful afternoons.

Road Trip Games

Skytop Lodge is just a short trip from the city. If you’re driving to the Poconos with kids in tow, brush up on some fun road trip games to pass the time. One of our favorites is road trip bingo. Make your own bingo card with items specific to where you’re going. It’s fun and gives your family an opportunity to learn about the Poconos. Oak tree, squirrel, butterfly, Skytop Lodge…bingo!

Activities for the Family

Perhaps mom wants to relax by the pool while dad golfs and the kids play at camp for the day. Sounds dreamy, right? It’s all possible at Skytop Lodge. Check out the activities ahead of time, so you know what your family wants to do. Did you know that Skytop Lodge is the only place in the Northeast where you can play Archery Tag? If your family is up for some unique fun, Archery Tag is the way to go. Book ahead and surprise the kids!

Elegantly Appointed Rooms
