The Poconos

Covering more than 2,400 square miles, northeastern Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains region offers family fun any time of year. In spring and summer, you can traverse the area’s lush national and state parks to view waterfalls, wetlands, and old-growth forests, or sign up for a rollicking white-water adventure along the Lehigh or Delaware Rivers. Abundant lakes mean plenty of chances for boating, sailing, and fishing, while stock-car enthusiasts can cheer along with the crowds at the Pocono Raceway.

Autumn brings vivid colors to the area’s maple, oak, and dogwood trees, along with crisp days for visiting a museum or historic home. Cool nights invite you to enjoy local suds at Poconos-area breweries or to eat dinners at cozy mountain-town restaurants serving up dishes using fresh local ingredients.

Winter means snow, and for vacationers in the Pocono Mountains, that means skiing, snowboarding, and snow-tubing. It also means bird-watchers can marvel at overwintering bald eagles in the Upper Delaware River region. And any season is the right time for a relaxing getaway at one of the area’s many spas. Or, for the kids, indoor water parks will have them feeling like it’s summer, no matter the weather outside.
