It seems there’s a bit of a misconception about winter activities in the Poconos. Sure, there area is known for it’s great winter skiing, but not everybody thinks that strapping a couple of thin boards to their feet and flying down a snow-covered hill in freezing weather is the ideal winter recreational activity.
If you’re one of the people who just says no to the snow, does that mean you’re out of luck as far as having fun in our Pennsylvania winters?
Strap on your goggles, and slip into your swimming suit because here’s some good news for non-skiiers in Pennsylvania. Water parks are not just for summer enjoyment anymore! People living in the Poconos region can take advantage of indoor water park fun all winter long.
