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. Just pick a verb: chill, escape, relax, romance, fish, hike, golf, shop, wed, party, gamble, float, glide, slip ‘n slide, paddle, row, ski, race, or spectate. 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.

An Iconic Career Win at the Tricky Triangle: A Look at the 2017 Pocono Axalta 400 Race

Around 10 a.m. at the Pocono Raceway on June 11th, the cool morning hours offered a vast, clear blue sky. Against the mountainous, wooded backdrop, pit crews were preparing their team’s stock cars for inspections before the Pocono 400 race.

 

The place was already booming with onlookers out for the full experience; many lined up at the inspection area, watching each car come in.  “It’s fascinating watching the cars getting all the measurements. It’s our first time at the Tricky Triangle,” says Julie Zwahr who travelled all the way with her family from Texas.
