Free, popular guide for Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Carbon counties

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) announces the return of its popular, free travel guide for the new year ahead. Each year since 2018, the Pocono Mountains Travel Guide has highlighted the PMVB member businesses, regional attractions and stories about Pocono Places and the people who make this destination a favorite of 30 million visitors annually.

The PMVB has partnered again with Bailey Design & Advertising to create the travel guide in both print and digital versions. The free publication is updated each year to help guests plan their getaway to the Pocono Mountains by showcasing things to do and places to stay, eat, shop, and enjoy the outdoors. The digital version also links to all the advertisers’ websites and is another way visitors can get more information on what to do and see in the Poconos.

Just like years past, more than 200,000 copies of the Pocono Mountains Travel Guide will be distributed to more than 800 locations throughout Virginia, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Travel guides are available in high-traffic locations including all Pennsylvania welcome centers, PMVB visitors centers, rest areas, AAA offices as well as via direct mail and trade shows. The PMVB also runs broadcast spots in major markets to promote the travel guide throughout the year.

“Each year our region sets the bar for visitor experience, and this is one significant way we can keep the Pocono Mountains top of mind for the millions of people who choose to spend their valuable money and time here,” said PMVB President/CEO Chris Barrett. “The official guide will continue to inspire travel throughout our destination and connect those visitors with our hospitality, restaurant and retail locations as well as the countless attractions across the Poconos that leave lasting memories.”

The guide will offer different levels of exposure and advertising. Priority will be given to PMVB members. A free listing will be given to any PMVB member and any property that pays the hotel tax within Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Carbon counties. Enhanced listings are also available at a low cost that include additional content such as a website listing, description and image.

An Early Bird Advertising Rate is being offered this year with a 25% savings if payment is made by March 1st, 2024. Ad placement will be on first come, first served basis with prepayment. For more information on the travel guide, please visit
