Looking for the perfect Mother’s Day vacation spot? Look no further than the Poconos! Here are some great tips for celebrating Moms this year with an unforgettable getaway here.

Something for Every Mom!

For the adventurous mom, the Poconos offer a wide range of outdoor activities. Take her on a scenic hike in one of the many state parks, or explore the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. There are also opportunities for horseback riding, kayaking, and even hot air balloon rides. 

If mom loves to shop, there are great opportunities near the Lake Harmony area.  It is home to the Pocono Premium Outlets, which feature over 100 stores offering designer clothing, accessories, and home goods at discounted prices. You can also visit the nearby town of Jim Thorpe, which has a variety of unique shops selling everything from antiques to handmade crafts.  

Delicious Meals with Mom

For a special dinner with her, the Pocono Mountains have a variety of great options to choose from. Nick’s Lake House in Lake Harmony offers lakeside dining and a menu featuring seafood, steaks, and pasta dishes. Shenanigans in Lake Harmony has a cozy atmosphere and serves up classic pub fare such as burgers, wings, and salads. And for a fine dining experience head to Louie’s Prime Steakhouse, where you can enjoy delicious cuts of beef and seafood dishes in an elegant setting. With these excellent dining options, you’ll be sure to find the perfect spot to treat mom to a memorable meal. And if mom is a wine lover, the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail is a short drive away, featuring several wineries with tasting rooms and vineyard tours.

Creative & Fun Activities

For a fun activity that moms can do with the family, consider The Arty Party Place or Poke-A-Nose Pottery.  The Arty Party Place offers painting and the opportunity for everyone to make a  memorable piece of artwork. It doesn’t matter if you’re a toddler or an adult, they have something for everyone.  At Poke-A-Nose Pottery you can enjoy an hour and a half of painting FUN! Painting pottery or playing with clay you get an awesome hands-on experience and get to create a keepsake (you’ll receive at a later date).  Both are great ways to commemorate that special Mother’s Day in the Poconos.

There are also plenty of fun and creative indoor activities that families can enjoy together. One such activity is creating DIY photo frames together. This is a great way for children to show their appreciation for their mom and create a special memento of their Mother’s Day vacation. Kids can use paint, glitter, beads, and other materials to decorate their photo frames and make them truly unique. Then you can insert a special photo of the family from the vacation to commemorate their trip. This is a fun and easy activity that the whole family can enjoy, and it’s a great way to create lasting memories with mom.

With so much to see and do, the Pocono Mountains are the perfect destination for a Mother’s Day vacation. Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation, shopping, or quality time with mom, you’ll find it all here. And Pocono Mountain Rentals offers a wide variety of vacation rentals that will give you all the comforts of home, while being close to so many opportunities.  From lakefront homes to secluded retreats, we have something that is perfectly suited for your family Mother’s Day vacation!
