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.

Lenni Lena’Pe ~ The True People Of The Poconos
Long before Europeans, the Lenni Lena’pe called this area home. These Native Americans were the first inhabitants of the Pocono Mountains, having settled in the area over 10,000 year ago. Lenape is pronounced “Leh-NAH-pay” and it means “the people.” Sometimes you will see this name spelled Lenape, Lenápe or Lena’pi. The tribe is also known as the Lenni Lenape which translates to “true people” or the Delaware Indians after the Delaware River – The River of Human Beings, which runs through Lenni Lena’pe territory. The word Pocono in the native Lena’pe tongue means “a river between two mountains.” The Lena’pe did not have a written language; their history was passed from generation to generation by storytellers.
