Staying Home is No Punishment
Some people prefer going out and celebrating with the crowds on New Year’s Eve, while others prefer staying in with those to which they are closest. During a visit to Lake Harmony in the Poconos, it’s quite common that most choose to stay in. Our homes offer a warmth you don’t normally find in a rental, and the cheerful décor is inviting and comforting. Keep the champagne chilled in the refrigerator of the fully equipped kitchen, watch the countdown on the large screen television in the living room, and when the last confetti bomb has gone off and the new year has been born, dropping thankfully into soft beds will be a welcome end to the holiday! If you still need to get work done over the holiday, many of our rooms make for comfortable offices. Staying in, in one of your own Lake Harmony rentals with Pocono Mountain Rentals is no punishment; it’s the best decision you can make to end the year!
Going Out Can Be a Blast
It’s ok if you’re still among the ones who prefer to go out and party with the masses; there’s more than a few parties going on in the Poconos! Enjoy an elegant masquerade balls, grand buffets, and even a snow tubing event at the Blue Mountain Resort in nearby Palmerton. The Boulder View Tavern, right here in Lake Harmony, offers a celebration that combines live music, a delicious meal, and of course a cash bar where you can purchase all the champagne you care to drink! Kissing your favorite traveling partner at midnight brings hopes of happiness and good luck, both of which started with your stay in our holiday Lake Harmony PA vacation home rentals!
New Year Adventures
New Year’s Eve lasts only a few hours, but your Poconos vacation is sure to extend far beyond the holiday, and when you stay in Lake Harmony, you’ll find there is always something to do! Waterparks used to be a summer only event, but H20oooooh, the Poconos only indoor water park, extends your water fun to every season of the year! Located right here in Lake Harmony, a day pass for kids under 42 inches in height will only cost you $33, and while the park is more specifically geared towards the younger generation, the entire family can have a day of water fun as the snow falls outdoors!
Healthy families don’t hide indoors when the day is cold; they get out there and enjoy the feel of that cold air kissing their cheeks with a hike through Hickory Run Boulder Field, which offers over 40 miles of trails, trout streams, and natural areas perfect for taking a family picture you’ll never forget. Shopping is often a favored vacation activity, especially in the winter when weather is less than friendly.
Who wants to be outside in the cold and wet when they could be warm and toasty and shopping for bargains at the local outlet mall? The Crossings Premium Outlets are located just 25 minutes down the road in Tannersville, and they offer even better deals than normal during the holiday season! Home to your favorite high-end stores and a few you may not know but will soon fall in love with, spending the day in this shopping nirvana promises to be the highlight of a vacation that is already extraordinary!
All This Shopping and Hiking is Making Us Hungry
Fortunately for you, Lake Harmony and the surrounding areas offer a tasty selection of restaurants, diners, and cafes, all serving the meals that make your soul happy! The Soul Food Chess House, Compton Pancake House, and Momenta Pizzeria & Restaurant in Stroudsburg are just a few restaurants that make us really happy and are just a short drive from our New Year’s Lake Harmony PA vacation home rentals.
