“The Pocono Mountains is truly a spectacular sight during the fall season,” said Chris Barrett, President/CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “From hopping in the car for a scenic cruise to climbing aboard a fall foliage train or chairlift, there are so many ways to enjoy autumn throughout our 2,400 square-mile, four-county region.”
The Poconos has been nominated and named a top fall foliage destination in this national contest several years in a row, securing 3rd place in 2021, 8th place in 2020, and 4th place in 2019.
A panel of experts and 10Best editors selected the Poconos as one of 20 nominees, while the Top 10 is determined by public vote. There is no cost to participate in the contest, and nominations aren’t purchased. Learn more here.
