Just four-months-old the Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, in Tannersville, Pa., has earned the title of Best Indoor Water Park in the country from USA Today and 10Best—a site that provides info on travel content for top destinations across the global.

Twenty water parks fell on the list nominated from among hundreds in the U.S.—and readers selected Camelback as No. 1.

 “The USA Today “10Best Readers’ Choice” award is a huge honor because it is a direct result of our guests’ experiences,” says Jeff Lococo, general manager and executive vice president, Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark.

Spanning 125,000 square feet, Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark is the biggest indoor water park in the U.S., and boasts seven pools and 13 water slides.

“While we just opened the doors to Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark this past spring, our team is inspired to see that their hard work and dedication to deliver a fun, safe and quality guest experience has already made such a positive impression,” says Lococo. “There are hundreds of indoor water parks in the U.S. and to be recognized as the best indoor waterpark by families from coast to coast is truly rewarding.”

Portland International Airport (PDX) was famously known for its teal, geometrically patterned carpet, which was sadly removed back in 2015. But now, PDX will be known for its recently completed, unique timber ceiling. ZGF Architects worked closely with PDX for 50 years and designed this transformation to last another half century. The Portland airport is becoming one of the first to be seismic-resilient and produce low carbon emissions, thanks to the 9 acres of native Pacific Northwest hardwood used in building the terminal’s ceiling.

 

The average event-goer spends long days sitting in meetings or professional development sessions, followed by an hour or two of standing and sipping cocktails. But holding your next big event at a spa resort opens a realm of possibilities for wellness breaks. Moving the action from the boardroom to the steam room can improve morale by combining business with pleasure—while also boosting attendees’ health.
