Nov 5, 2019

Looking for outdoor adventure when you come to the Poconos? Check out this list of the top things to do and see on your Poconos vacation.

  1. Go on a scenic hike. There are many day hikes for hikers of all levels that provide stunning lake and mountain views. 
  2. Rent bikes. Cruiser bikes are available to rent and explore miles of trails. Plus, Skytop Lodge offers Burleys for children who aren’t ready for a 2-wheeler just yet.
  3. Do an adventure course. Why not take in the views from the tops of the trees with a TreeTop Adventure Course? Zip and fly between trees, balance as you walk over bridges, and be one with the birds.
  4. Pocono Snake and Animal Farm. See the animals native to this region. This Pocono family farm has an impressive assortment of mammals and reptiles, including monkeys, lemurs, and chinchillas.
  5. Check out Bushkill Falls & The Delaware Water Gap. There are many waterfalls and fishing areas where you can enjoy the serenity of your surroundings. Bushkill Falls is a nearby favorite, located in The Delaware Water Gap. 
  6. Play Archery Tag®. Best described as “dodgeball with bows and arrows,” this exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate experience that you’ll only find at Skytop Lodge. 
  7. Day trip to a historic town. Whether you’re driving in or looking for a fun day-trip, visiting a historic town like Jim Thorpe or Milford is a fun sightseeing excursion. 
  8. Take a train ride. A ride on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway is a must. This vintage railway will take you back in time. You’ll see wildlife, mountain scenery, and seasonal foliage as you travel through cliffs and valleys.
  9. Whitewater rafting. Boating season typically runs mid-April through October. If you’re visiting in the Spring or Summer, head down the Leigh on a whitewater raft! 
  10. Fishing. Cast away in a private trout stream full of freshly-stocked trout. Or post up at the lake for some largemouth bass, perch, pickerel, and more.
