Lake Ariel—go wild for the wildlife

Kids will love the lions and tigers at the Claws ’N’ Paws Wild Animal Park or the water slides and go-karts at the Costa’s Family Fun Park. But there’s plenty of real wildlife to be seen in the outdoors, too, from turtles and raccoons, to bears and deer. In the winter, skiers flock to Camelback Mountain and Ski Big Bear, while in the summer, the many watersports centers are great places to learn to waterski or kayak. Whatever the season, auto-racing fans can pick up the pace at the speedy Pocono Raceway, and if all this sounds too busy, you can sit back and take in the scenery aboard one of the Stourbridge Line Train Excursions.
