Another good way to have active fun is to head to a resort or lodge in a Great Outdoors setting that prides itself on offering its guests a wide range of things to do. Woodloch Resort
in Pennsylvania, for instance, is a four-season resort with a thousand acres, and guests might variously try lake watersports, snow tubing, or ice skating; Rocking Horse Ranch
in New York State has horseriding and nature trails, plus bungee jumping, softball, tennis, bocce court, miniature golf, and climbing walls; at Mohonk Mountain House
, also in New York State, winter guests can try try x-country skiing on 35 miles of trails, snowshoeing, snow-tubing, and ice-skating. Smugglers Notch, VT
has too many activities to list in both winter ( including skiing) and summertime... And in North Carolina, the rustin Earthshine Mountain Lodge
--about an hour and a half from Ashville-- has ziplines and a high-ropes course; guests also hike up a creek and slide down a natural rock waterslide.
