From world-class fishing, and bald eagles watching on the nearby Delaware or Lackawaxen rivers to horse drawn wagon rides, winter Olympic style games,  ice skating and snow tubing onsite, the cold weather months are actually “pretty cool” for families.

Woodloch in Pennsylvania’s Poconos is one of the best all-inclusive family vacation resorts for a winter getaway because they offer endless activities and entertainment for all kids from two to 92. Woodloch's Boomer Bear Snowmobiling, Poconos PA

1. Imagine a cruise on land. During the cool weather months guests may enjoy the indoor pool as well as a “kiddie” pool and water slide. The social activities staff is dedicated to entertaining guests and not in a boring predictable manner. Their goal is to exceed your expectations and they focus their energy on doing just that. 

2. Watch a comical black bear adds to the fun. The resort’s mascot is a black bear named Boomer. He has his own way of attracting attention and entertaining guests throughout the resort. Sometime he’s skimming the snow on a snowmobile and other times making a snowman with kids. His antics cause laughter and make interesting dinner conversation. 

3. Stay inside and have fun.  Boomer Club activities fill each day with entertainment, add to that family-friendly game shows, game room fun, scavenger hunts, cupcake wars, trivia games, seasonal arts & crafts, and racquetball.Woodloch Family Snow Tubing Adventures, Poconos PA

Bonus Points: The nearby Lodge at Woodloch offers guests who need to de stress spa time and an effortless way to energize mind, body and spirit.

6. Look on the green side. It’s not surprising based on the beauty of the resort’s natural surroundings that Woodloch has an earth-friendly, green side. For guest’s benefits they have partnered with a variety of local naturalists and herbalists to offer exclusive classes, tours, outdoor excursions and nature walks. During cold weather months they offer adventure/nature packages that include: hiking/rappelling trips, rafting, American Bald Eagle watching, and snowshoeing. Wait for it! As the weather warms “green” options include: medicinal herbs presentation, wild edibles presentation and nature walk, survivalist skills presentation, wildflower nature walks, fly fishing, and butterfly education and release program. 

7. Enjoy night time entertainment. Heritage Nightclub at Woodloch Pines offers Broadway-style themed shows on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. Other nights feature swing bands, comedians, magicians and various other talented performers.
