Skytop Lodge, PA

5 of 19

Fans of the cult classic Dirty Dancing will recognize the wholesome brand of family fun cultivated at this stone-and-wood lodge on 5,500 acres in the Poconos. You can zipline through the Tree Top Adventure Course (more than 3,000 feet long, but a comfortable 10–15 feet above the ground); play laser tag or paintball; set off on a GPS-guided nature hike; or, in the winter, go dogsledding with the resort’s own team of huskies. Grown-ups may opt to do the more rigorous Leavitt Falls hike, which descends into a rhododendron-dotted ravine, home to foxes.

Rate: From $495 per night based on double occupancy, for the Full American Plan, which includes three daily meals and select activities (hiking trails, indoor and outdoor pools, and mini-golf). Children under 12 are free; those 12 and over or additional adults are $75 per person. Fees apply for golf and Adventure Center activities.
