Mid-Week Escape to Woodloch Pines Resort

The best getaways happen off-season…… By Nicole Jackson Sometimes you just need a mini escape to recharge- just enough to get you through the rest of the month. With me returning to college, hubby getting a new job, and Seth turning two and transitioning into the toddler years- that “sometime” finally came about two weeks ago. We were given the chance to have an impromptu, mid-week getaway to our favorite

Island Glamping at The Shawnee Inn in the Poconos

Glamping [glam-ping]  noun 1. Informal. the activity of camping with some of the comforts and luxuries of home: Imagine glamping in a carpeted tent with a comfy queen-size bed By now you’ve probably scrolled past images on Instagram of glamping- making experienced campers laugh and wilderness-challenged folks actually open to the idea.

Located right on the Delaware River, this golf resort decided to give

Making Memories at Silver Birches on Lake Wallenpaupack

Located just a little over two hours from the Bronx is the man-made Lake Wallenpaupack. Made in 1925 by the Pennsylvania Power & Light Company, it measures 13 miles in length and around 5,700 acres of surface water. Homes, resorts, a beach, and even a high school are situated along the lake, but the view from the water feels as though you’ve just discovered a hidden gem- since homeowners aren’t allowed to cut down

Day Trip: Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark in the Poconos

  With so much to do within driving distance of the Bronx, we don’t often get to visit the same place twice. But when it comes to one place, the kids love it so much that we’ve made it part of our annual summer fun. That place is Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark. Situated at the bottom of a beautiful mountainside in the Poconos, Camelbeach is actually the biggest waterpark in Pennsylvania. No
