what to do in the poconos on a rainy day

If you’re planning a Poconos trip, it’s no secret that there are endless ways to enjoy the area. But what if it starts to rain and your family is wondering what to do?

Here are six indoor activities that every member of the family will love. From a zoo-in-the-woods to an escape room, the following suggestions will keep your family entertained and happy on a rainy day in the Poconos.

The Living History Museum

This Poconos attraction has a colonial Williamsburg vibe but without the trek down south. Pet the animals, take part in family programs and learn how people lived 150 years ago.

Klues Escape Room

For a unique challenge that the whole family can tackle, head to this ingenious puzzle-solving escape room. The clues are all hidden in different themed options, and it’s up to you to figure out where to go next.

Train Tours

If a ride through the Lackawaxen River Valley is your idea of fun, hop aboard the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway in Jim Thorpe. The train cars are a cool way to spend an afternoon, and you can also opt for specific tours, like the Ice Cream Express or the Pumpkin Patch Express.

Shop ’til You Drop

If shopping is your thing, Crossings Premium Outlets in Tannersville offers over 100 designer and brand name outlets. With savings from 25 to 65 percent, you can pick up everything from Vera Bradley to Ann Taylor and Coach.
