Experience Your Best Poconos Vacation

The Poconos mountain area is a popular vacation destination for residents of New England, New York, and New Jersey. It is close to the Catskills and is known for many attractions, including the Delaware Water Gap Recreation area, which spans 67,000 acres and includes 40 miles of rivers. Visitors to the Delaware Water Gap can hike the Appalachian Trial and view the area's natural wildlife.

The region's many ski resorts include the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area.

In addition to a multitude of natural attractions, this area also has many shopping opportunities, including outlet malls and antique stores.

Best time to take a trip to Pocono Mountains

Summer is one of the most popular times of year to visit the Poconos region. Though temps can reach up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the pleasant mountain climate and multiple lakes and rivers keep the weather pleasant enough for enjoying the region's many outdoor attractions. Hiking, water sports, and camping are all popular summer attractions in the Poconos. Many of the region's historic sites are best viewed in the summer, since snow and cold winter temperatures force these attractions to close in the winter months.
