Planning a Family Staycation: Ideas for a Poconos Getaway

One of the best things about living in the information age is the ease with which we can mix work and play. Traditionally, the word staycation—a portmanteau of stay and vacation—basically means to take a few days off of work and school to explore your local landmarks and attractions. Well, it may be safe to say that in the last few months, many of us have done just about everything we can in our immediate surroundings. But what if you applied the concept of a staycation to your home away from home? Families have been coming to Woodloch Resort for decades. But now, instead of waiting for work to be over, you can simply take work with you! Below we’ll share a few family staycation ideas.

Poconos Family Resorts: Home is Where the Heart Is

A senior citizen and his grandson stand on the dock while they decide which bait to use for fishing on their Poconos getaway. Imagine completing your final task of the day and then heading out with your family for fun and games in the Poconos Mountains. Typically, you would likely spend your time picking kids up from various events, deciding what to make for dinner, or lounging around after a long day. But you’ll forget you were even working when the whistle blows in the Poconos! Now, you might want to ask the kids not to brag too much about all the fun they had while you were doing TPS reports, but we guarantee seeing the smiles on their faces after you close your laptop will make all their gloating worth it.
