3-Day Vacation Ideas in the Pocono Mountains

Whether it’s summer, fall, winter, or spring, there’s a potential, once-in-a-lifetime, family getaway waiting for you in the serene Pocono Mountains. Coming up with 3-day vacation ideas for your next extended weekend getaway with the kids isn’t easy. You don’t want to spend too much time packed in a stuffy car, and you definitely don’t want to spend hours planning, preparing, and packing for just a three-day getaway. Not only does Woodloch Resort have countless on-site activities, inclusive meals, and daily schedules, but our 3-day extended stays are too inexpensive to pass up. Here are four, seasonal, 3-day vacation ideas, perfect for families, groups, and couples alike.

Snowy Winter Wonderland

Let’s start with the most affordable season of the year: the wintertime. As we detailed in a recent money-saving blog, 3-day extended stays from March through May are one of the cheapest times to visit Woodloch Resort. Winter escapes to Woodloch, in combination with alpine skiing at Big Bear at Masthope Mountain, are undeniably entertaining. We also have on-site snow tubing, snowshoeing, and ice skating to go along with dozens of indoor activities.

Spring Fling in the Poconos

With New Year’s Eve in the rearview mirror, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about your next spring getaway to the Pocono Mountains. All 3-day vacation ideas should include ample time spent outdoors. After a winter spent shoveling, scraping, and slipping, you’ll want to explore Woodloch Resort’s 1,200 acres of lush forestry. Spring is the perfect season for ziplining, go-karting, golfing, archery, rock climbing, and hiking.

Summertime Water Fun

Despite being the busiest season of the year here at Woodloch Resort, you’ll never have to wait in line to enjoy the sun-splashed glory of a Pennsylvania summer. Most of our visiting families take full advantage of the warm temperatures and sunny skies by swimming, water skiing, boating, and sunbathing at Lake Teedyuskung. We’re one of the only Pocono Mountains resorts to have our own private lake. Summer availability fills fast, so book now before it’s too late!

Colorful Autumn Foliage

It makes sense to have separate, seasonal, 3-day vacation plans because we’re a year-round family resort after all. We finish this list with the season of falling leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, cozy flannel, and, of course, Woodloch Resort’s famous Haunted Hayrides. The Pocono Mountains transform into a stunning mixture of kelly green, amber orange, straw yellow, and brick red every autumn. Spend your days fishing, driving, ziplining, go-karting, rock climbing, and playing paintball before enjoying live entertainment from the region’s best comedians, magicians, and performers.
