Hotel at a Glance: Kalahari Resorts & Conventions Pocono Mountains
The massive Kalahari Resorts & Conventions Pocono Mountains packs a spa, fitness center, salon, arcade, several restaurants and bars, and 6,000 sq. ft. of retail space into its 150-acre complex. But the big attraction is its 220,00-sq. ft. indoor waterpark—recently more than doubled in size—where kids and adults splish splash down high-speed water coasters and float along a lazy river. After adding hundreds more rooms and expanding thousands of square feet, the Poconos Kalahari is now the largest indoor water park in the United States. Those who’ve been to the resort before will now encounter a whole new level of fun and adventure. Every person seems to have their own favorite ride here—from the massive family-friendly Victoria Falls raft ride to the hair-raising, near-vertical plunge of Screaming Hyena to the toddler-friendly Tiko’s Watering Hole. What’s more, this deal comes with a daily admission to the indoor water park for four.
Family-friendly accommodations: Up to four people can stay in the comfy desert room, which features an HDTV, free WiFi access, a refrigerator, and microwave.
Added perk: This Getaway comes with a $100 arcade credit per stay.
Take a spa day: Book a pedicure or hot-stone massage at Spa Kalahari.
Get fit: Break a sweat at Kalahari’s fitness and training center.
Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains: Downhill Skiing and Historical Towns
The Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania accounts for some 2,400 square miles of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and forests. The area has been a popular vacation destination ever since Pennsylvania Quakers opened a hotel here on the Delaware River in 1829. Today, the Poconos draw more than 25 million annual visitors, thanks to year-round recreational opportunities and spectacular natural scenery.
In winter, locals often make weekend trips from Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, and DC for one reason: skiing. One ski spot that’s particularly popular is Camelback Mountain Resort, which sits atop one of the region’s tallest mountains and boasts 160 acres of skiable terrain. For an extended run, head to the Nile Mile, which drops 800 feet vertically over the course of a mile-long descent. The resort is also amply lit for night skiing, and is the only place in the Poconos with a halfpipe. After you’re done hitting the slopes, take time to explore the handful of little towns nestled in the mountains. You’ll find boutique wine galleries and historical mansions, including the late 19th-century Asa Packer Mansion.
