Welcome to the Poconos

Whether you’re searching for the best family vacations or weekend getaways for couples; you’ll be head over hills for the Poconos!

Once upon a time, long before Tastykakes and the Internet were invented, the Poconos majestically rose up under our feet. People and pets have been coming from the city and the boonies just to spend time in our northeastern Pennsylvania wonderland.

Here in the Poconos, you can do just about everything. You can relax – or race. You can roll down the river – or roll the dice at a casino. When you visit the Poconos, you can escape and relax for a romantic vacation, or hike nature trails in the area state parks.  Go shopping at hundreds of the areas boutique shops, antiques, malls and more.  You can even work if you must. We have great spaces for conferences. In the Poconos, you can do whatever you want. 

Poco-­Knows: The area covers four counties: Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon. It’s 2,400 sq. miles and more than 340,000 people live in the Poconos year-­‐round. It would take about 2 hours to drive from the Southern most point to the Northern most point of the Poconos.  VisitPoconos.com covers the Poconos, Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania regions.

Poconos Travel Info

Pocono Kindness Rocks

Pocono Kindness Rocks
Reason #492 to stop staring at your phone while traversing the Poconos: painted rocks. They’ve become ubiquitous, these artfully decorated stones, which are often adorned with inspiring messages. But if apps and texts distract, you’re likely to walk right past them.

Callie’s Pretzel Factory Closing in the Poconos

Callie’s Pretzel Factory Closing in the Poconos

Getting into a twist isn’t always a bad thing, especially when making pretzels. And if you churned out knotted dough for over three decades, that twist came with a high measure of satisfaction.

Christmas Eve marked the end of the road for Barrett Township mainstay Callie’s Pretzel Factory, which began baking its deliciousness in 1985, just three miles south of an eponymous Candy Kitchen. It wasn’t long before pretzel-making turned into high art, with versions adhered to sticks, cloaked around hot dogs, and morphed into pizzas becoming in-demand staples.

Ross & Ross Nursery, Leading Vegetation Center in the Poconos

Ross & Ross Nursery, Leading Vegetation Center in the Poconos
One needn’t be a discerning gardener, a top-notch landscaper, or even an ardent botanist to appreciate the horticultural trappings at Ross & Ross Nursery. This Cresco stalwart, owned and operated by the same family since 1932, has wholeheartedly earned its status as a leading vegetation center planted in the Pocono Mountains. Indeed, what’s sold here makes even casual greenskeepers long for enduring agrarian bliss.

Holley Ross Pottery, a Shimmering Wonderland

Holley Ross Pottery, a Shimmering Wonderland
Any grandma worth her salt has hutches brimming with collectibles. After the overflow jams its way into parlor curios, she gets creative: A figurine or two rests atop an end table, the periwinkle-laced teacups dangle from hooks beneath kitchen cabinets, that stack of holiday china now occupies a lower cupboard. But despite a dearth of storage, granny wants to amass more treasure.
