As we bid farewell to 2023 and usher in 2024, we invite you to ring in the New Year with an exciting vacation in the Poconos. Breathe in the crisp mountain air filled with the possibilities of hope, joy, adventure and unforgettable moments. Join us as we explore some entertaining activities that enhance this holiday season. Let the countdown begin!

Chilly weather and snowy days can be the perfect time to enjoy indoor activities with the family.  Split Rock Hotel’s H2Oooohh! Indoor Waterpark offers indoor fun, no matter what the weather holds.  With 53,326 square feet of water attractions to experience, you’ll never get bored!  Explore and enjoy the 3 four-story slides, wave pool, activity pool, dumping buckets, and more!  Plus, you’ll find all you need at the Island Oasis Snack Shack.  Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is another great option when you want to splash all day!   With wild slides, fun rides, cozy cabanas and more, it’s everything you want from an indoor waterpark!

Ready to get your shop on?  Pocono Premium Crossing Outlets is one of the area’s most popular destinations. You’ll find over 100 outlet stores full of great deals on name brand items.  

Interested in trying your luck?  A great way for the adults to spend a day is to hit up the casinos!  Mount Airy Casino and Mohegan Sun Pocono- Casino are nearby and have plenty to keep you entertained.  In addition to the games of chance, you will find entertainment, live music, good food, and more.

Get your heart rate up with some competitive Pickleball action at Dropshots in White Mills, PA.  They’re open 7 days a week, and you don’t have to be a member to play!  They’ve got cushioned, temperature-controlled indoor courts, outfitted with Nova tennis court surface and court dividers for non-stop game play.

Want to put your problem solving skills to the test? Grab the crew and head to Big Screen Escapes!  They offer many different themed escape rooms, and can accommodate larger groups in most cases.  They have locations in both Mt Pocono and Tannersville.  Your best bet is to reserve your time online, but they do allow walk-ins subject to availability!

And how could we kick off the new year in the Poconos without mentioning the many events happening.
