Located in Pennsylvania, The Poconos is a primetime winter destination. Whether you enjoy skiing, snowboarding, tubing or are just looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, the Poconos may be the place for you.
Although there are multiple mountain destinations in the area, Camelback Mountain is perfect for families.
Camelback Mountain and the lodge were voted No. 1 for skiing and riding in Pennsylvania. Guests staying in the lodge can engage in endless experiences. Lodge guests receive discounted pricing for lift and tubing tickets.
Families can spend the weekend at the resort or book a house in the surrounding neighborhoods. There are plenty of housing complexes and communities within walking distance of the resort and the mountain.
The mountain offers 39 ski trails, 166 acres of slopes, 42 snow tube lanes and more. Spend the day racing down the mountain, and making memories for the family forever.
If you aren’t into hitting the mountain, stay in the lodge and visit the indoor waterpark, voted No. 1 in the United States. From the comfort and warmth of the indoors, bask in the sun shining through the state’s largest Texlon roof, speed down wild slides and fun rides, relax at the cozy cabanas and more.
Once you are all ski, snowboarded and snow tubed out, travel about 10 minutes down the road to the Tannersville Outlets to catch sales and explore more than 100 different shops.
While COVID-19 restrictions may apply to some aspects of the lodge and park, check out the resort’s website to plan accordingly.
With indoor dining finally (mostly) reopened in Philadelphia, my mom, sister and I were able to enjoy a day roaming around the city, eager for a warm place to enjoy a late lunch after a cold day out and about. For anyone who recently enjoyed the creativity and ingenuity of the city’s outdoor winter dining, an indoor space with heat, cozy furniture and rich wood walls is a much-appreciated semblance of normalcy.
The Marriott Bonvoy Bold™ Card recently launched BoldFamilyTravel.Chase.com, an interactive, online resource allowing families to plan future travel together.

Theme parks are a great way to escape reality as most offer different worlds in each section. Guests can explore different worlds, from their favorite TV show and movie franchises to much-loved video games. Mario and friends have been beloved video-game favorites for decades, and they finally get their own section of Universal Studios Japan.
Although FaceTime, Zoom and other forms of virtual communication have helped during these difficult times, sometimes it just doesn’t feel like enough. Let your friends and family know you are thinking of them by sending something personal, so they will have a piece of you with them.
