Shawnee Mountain, located in East Stroudsburg, Pa., is a prime destination for active and outdoorsy families looking to escape the stuffy indoor air. It is a skiing, snowboarding, and tubing hotspot during the winter months, but the fun doesn’t stop then. The mountain also hosts exciting summer and fall activities for the whole family, including the Annual Fireworks Display and Shawnee Mountain Mud Run.
Kids of all ages can partake in group ski or snowboarding lessons such as SKIwee (ages 4 to 6) and Mountain Cruisers (ages 7 to 15). At the end of each day, kick back at one of the area’s condos, villas, resorts, hotels, campgrounds, or bed and breakfasts, all located just minutes away from the mountain.
