What to do in Poconos?

Hi everyone,

We're planning a trip to the Pocono Mountains area in a few weeks. I know there is plenty to do with the wife and kids, but I'll also have my parents with me. My dad is confined to a wheelchair, and I was wondering if anyone had any insights into what we might be able to do with him. We certainly don't want him sitting around in his hotel room all day long.

We're also flexible as to location. They'll be moving on to visit friends in southern NH right after that, so someplace between the Poconos and NH might work, too, just not too close to NYC, though.

Just curious. Any help would be most appreciated.

You could stop at the KOA in Newburgh (Plattekill), NY and take a trip to Hyde Park to see the FDR and the Vanderbilt Mansions. These are federal sites and have full handicap access and I'm sure the history there would appeal to your Dad. Just a thought.

We are currently in Foxboro MA up from SC. Spent the night at Cherry Hill north of DC. Transportation from there to the city is convenient. Next stop KOA Plattkill. We stayed there two nights and visited some local spots. There was more to see than time allowed. Moved to Mystic KOA beautiful camp ground. If we had more time we would still be there. Beautiful town very old homes. Groton several exits south is home to the Submarine museum. Normandy Farms here in Foxboro is a very nice CG close to Boston and Providence. All new to us but we are having a great time exploring.
Come on up!

What a coincidence! I was just looking at the KOA in Plattekill last night. I think we've changed plans, and we're going to be heading more towards the Boston area, though. Maybe the KOA for overnight. I looked at Normandy Farms, too. Looks really nice. I think the Boston area would have lots for all of us to do. We might see you guys up there in a few weeks. Thanks for the replies.

If you want a "blast from the past" you can check out the Woodstock Museum in Bethel Woods. We really enjoyed it. Stayed at Skyway Campground in Greenfield Park, N.Y. It was a nice RV Park with FHUs. We stayed there just prior to Memorial Day last year. Don't know how crowded they get during peak season. Lots to do, see and eat in the area. Only 90 miles from N.Y.C.
