Year-Round Activities in the Poconos

When you think about mountains, you usually think of snowy activities. However, snow doesn’t always last in the mountains. Whether you like snow or not, the Poconos Mountains have plenty of activities to offer everyone all year-round. That makes this location a great one to visit for families, singles, or even just as a group of friends. To plan your vacation accordingly, here are some various activities that you can do throughout the seasons.¬†

Outdoor Laser Tag

In the spring, you can enjoy the thrill of outdoor laser tag. This fun arena offered by the Blue Mountain Resort features a great place to try your hand at laser tag. They have cover and obstacles that you can use to your advantage or detriment when playing with your friends or family. Since it’s outdoors, it’s only open in the spring, summer, and fall months.

If you happen to be visiting the Poconos Mountains in the winter, then you need to try White Lightning Snowtubing a try. For kids and adults who don’t like to ski, then tubing is a great alternative. There are safe courses that everyone can run down for hours. You should also check out Blue Lightning in the summer to go tubing after the snow has melted, too. This activity is a lot of fun for everyone and is open year-round whether there is snow or not.
