Giveaway: Kalahari Resorts Opening In Less Than One Hundred Days- In Celebration They Are Having Some Awesome Prizes Up For Grabs!


In less than a hundred days, today would be eighty-eight to be exact, you will find my family creating some amazing new memories in the Poconos! Less than two hours from NYC there will be a new resort opening its doors to us to come and enjoy. Now, I have never been to a Kalahari Resort before, so my family and I are beyond pumped to check it out! This will be their third resort and first one on the east coast! Woot! Woot! We are pretty much waterpark obsessed so this is going to be a win for us!

Kalahari Resort will include an indoor waterpark and convention center. Boasting an authentic African theme, Kalahari will be a one of a kind resort in the Poconos area. It will be a “have all” resort! Looks to me like you will not have to leave for anything. There will be plenty of dining choices, shopping, gaming and more. Did I mention there will be a Spa Kalahari!?


By the way, there is something unique to Kalahari- DAY Passes!! You can come to Kalahari and play for the day! That is a total perk for friends and family that do not want to do an overnight. As for me, I’m a total “Play and Stay” kind of person and cannot wait to check out all of the room themes and choices. Kalahari looks amazing and our family is getting more excited as the days go by and get closer to opening day! Kalahari- Here we come!

Warm Up This Winter At Great Wolf Lodge @greatwolflodge

Winter At Great Wolf Lodge- A Perfect Place To Warm Up


The winter freeze is definitely upon us. Although we do enjoy the snowy outdoor activities, we are also always in search of a cozy winter retreat. Luckily for us, Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos- less than two hours away from NYC is always there for us. Imagine enjoying an indoor water park with a view of the snowy mountains. It’s yours for the taking. One of our favorite family fun resorts is definitely Great Wolf. No matter that age of your children, from infants to adults, even the grandparents will have a blast. If you do visit, make sure you pack your swimsuit. Well, if you do forget, there is always one available at one of the shoppes.



Ten Things Our Family Loves About Great Wolf Lodge

1. You can choose your own activity level from reading a book in front of the fireplace in the Grand Lobby to swimming and water slides. It’s your call.

2. Magiquest and Shadowquest: What a fun game for all ages. The kids will love solving quests and moving on to different levels. Good Luck at the end if you go up against the dragon. He’s a tough one to beat, but there is always someone on hand from the Magiquest team to help you out, so don’t worry.

3. The Water park! Okay, so this one is definitely is my family’s favorite. We all love the wave pool, water slides and whirlpools. 84 degrees. Yes, please!

4. There are plenty of places to dine at the lodge. You do not have to leave to fill up the bellies. There are choices from buffets, Wolf It Down pizza, and more. Did I mention there is a Starbucks?








5. Story Hour is my daughter’s favorite. She loves watching the Clock Tower show followed by story time and then a character meet and greet. It is simply adorable. If you visit, don’t miss it.

6. The rooms are a world onto themselves. There is a huge variety of room styles to choose from. We love the loft with two floors of fun, and an in room fireplace and balcony. There are also rooms that tout bunk beds and their own kids’ cabin within the room.

7. There is a SPA within the lodge. One for adults and one for kids- Scooops Kids Spa. Enough said?

8. The Northern Lights arcade is a family fun spot for all of us. Everyone in our family has a blast between air hockey, skee ball, Deal or No Deal, and so many more choices.


9. The Staff! They are amazing. We visit the Poconos location and they are just top notch. No matter where you are in the lodge you can find a smiling face and someone to help or just brighten up your day. They are knowledgeable and willing to lend an extra hand.

10. Family time! With everyone on a different schedule it’s nice to get away, even for one night and just be together. The laughs are many and the memories we are making will last forever. Great Wolf Lodge cannot be beat for close to home family fun!

If your family is ready to warm up this winter, you should definitely check out Great Wolf Lodge.

See you there! Great Wolf Lodge
