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.

Delaware Water Gap - Hiking the Appalachian Trail
One of the most prominent views from the Appalachian Trail is the cascading Kittatinny Ridge that dramatically cuts in and overhangs the Delaware River, right in the Poconos’ very own Delaware Water Gap.  The gap itself spans nearly a mile thanks to the winding river that cuts through the mountains separating the New Jersey and Pennsylvania border.  The river actually contributes to the continual peak growth of the ridge, which is constantly shifting.

Consider a Locally Sourced Thanksgiving Celebration

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to express gratitude for the abundance of locally grown foods available in and around Northeastern Pennsylvania and Sullivan County, NY.  “We’re so fortunate to have a variety of fresh produce and meats from regional family farms and cooperatives,” says Sky Ballentine of The Lackawaxen Farm Company, a food hub based in Wayne County, PA.
