ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: My mom and I set off to Camelback Lodge in the Pocono Mountains on Friday morning; our commute wasn’t long, so we got there earlier in the day. Since it was spring break for some New Jersey and New York schools, it was crowded when we arrived, but the check-in process went smoothly. The staff at the hotel was waiting for our arrival, and our room was ready for us as soon as we got there.
GUEST QUARTERS: Camelback Lodge is currently in the process of renovating all its guestrooms, and we were lucky to stay in a newly refurbished room. Our room was a generous size, decorated with vibrant colors and photos by local artists. As we walked into the room, a decent-sized bathroom stood to the right, and to the left was a hanging rack and shelves. The room included two queen beds along with a sofa sitting area and a small dining table. The table was filled with some of our favorite snacks such as popcorn, Doritos, fruits and vegetables and, our personal favorite, a giant soft pretzel.
The lodge offers countless activities and amenities to take advantage of during a stay, no matter the season. Year-round, guests can enjoy Aquatopia, the famous indoor waterpark, where they can spend the day relaxing at a private cabana or splashing in the wave pool and slipping down the slides. In the summer months guests can also head to the outdoor waterpark.
If adventure is more your speed, spend a winter weekend hitting the slopes of Camelback Mountain. Located right behind the resort, the slopes are easy to get to and suitable for different skill levels for skiing and snowboarding. In the fall, spring and summer, adventure seekers should try the multiple zip lines, mountain coaster, ropes course and more. We went during early spring and had the chance to ride the Mountain Coaster, which provided beautiful views of the mountain.
If you are looking for a delicious meal and great atmosphere, head to Berrelli’s Italian Chophouse. Within walking distance of the hotel, the restaurant offers a variety of great dishes; delicious desserts; and an extensive wine, beer and cocktail menu.
- Camelback Lodge is the perfect place for families to let loose and escape their everyday lives.
- All overnight guests have free passes to the waterpark during their stay.
- The Lodge offers plenty of family suites and condos that can accommodate up to 12 guests.
- No matter the season, plenty of activities will keep the kids entertained, from an arcade to two waterparks, ski and snowboard slopes and more.

Birmingham, Alabama, was named for the city in the English Midlands that kept the fires burning, warmed the homes and made much of the steel for the United Kingdom’s industrial revolution. Decades later, the American city also made steel, so much of it, in fact, it became known as the “Magic City” for steel production, and the moniker stuck. But today’s Magic City makes more than steel, taking the raw product a few more steps to become a major center for automobile parts manufacturing and more, including Honda, Mercedes-Benz and U.S. Steel. Thanks to local leadership and long-term planning, the magic still works for Birmingham, as evidenced by its role hosting The World Games 2022 last summer.

Originally a thriving Colonial seaport, Newport became the summer playground for the Gilded Age’s elite in the late 1880s. Today their mansions dot the coast of Aquidneck Island, and their favorite pastimes — sailing and tennis — still dominate the city’s recreational offerings. In fact, Newport hosted the first U.S. Open tennis championship in 1881 and golf tourna- ment in 1895 and hosted the America’s Cup from 1930 to 1983. You can experience most of Newport on your own, including the mansions, but don’t rule out a guided tour or two when you visit.
