Quick Winter Family Getaways
The Best Winter Fun Getaways in New Jersey and the Tri-State Area

This winter may have you wishing you could hibernate until Spring, but now is the perfect time for a quick family getaway. The snow, ice and cold weather always seem less maddening (and the kids are less stir crazy) if you can pack up and head off for a couple of days of some family fun. In Hawley, PA Woodloch Pines Resort has endless winter activities, including snow tubing, ice-skating, skiing (off property) wagon rides...plus they also offer tons of indoor fun for the entire family. In Hamburg, NJ, Crystal Springs and Mountain Creek is the perfect getaway! They have snow tubing, skiing, ice-skating, cross-country skiing - and more, plus an amazing indoor biosphere pool. And at Rocking Horse Ranch in Highland, NY not only can you saddle up for some fantastic winter horseback riding, but they also have skiing, sledding, horse drawn wagon rides, tubing, and an indoor water park. Don't let the winter weather get you down - pack up for a weekend of family fun and memories! Need more getaway ideas?
