#2 Go to an Animal Park or Petting Farm

Do your kids love animals? Who doesn’t! Take them to a petting farm to get close to many different kinds of animals. Whether your kids want to pet a friendly goat, feed a monkey or parrot, they’ll surely be able to do in one of the animal parks or petting farms located in the Pocono Mountains. Being able to see everything from deer to gibbons to lemurs to lions to lizards,  an animal park or a petting farm will delight every family member.

#3 Go Hiking

Get your hiking boots on and become one with the nature and beauty of the Pocono Mountains! We recommend hiking in and around one of the picturesque waterfalls. Don’t forget to ensure you and your children wear appropriate shoes! After the long hike, you and your family will want to jump into the water to cool off on a hot summer day. So don’t forget to wear bathing suits!

#4 Go Whitewater Rafting

Treat your family to an afternoon of wet and wild fun on a whitewater rafting adventure! Float right down the Lehigh River Gorge in the Poconos, while taking in the stunning scenery that surrounds you. If you trust yourself not to drop your phone, snap a couple of pictures along the way! So, pack up your whole family and head to the Pocono Mountains. Rafting experiences cater to children as young as 5!
