Fire and Ice Sunsets


Pocono sunsets are beautiful at any time of year, but there's something particularly magical about the fiery evening skies over the icy winter landscape. This setting sun was captured over the Inn at Tyler Hill, a cozy bed and breakfast tucked away in the pastoral hills of Wayne County.


On the Slopes


With six fantastic ski areas scattered throughout the region, including Blue Mountain Resort pictured above, there are countless memories made on the slopes in the Poconos every year! Suit up for a day flying over the snow; if you've never tried skiing or snowboarding before, now is the perfect time to learn.


Family Fun


Grab your family for some splash time! Throughout all 12 months of year, it's always a balmy 84 degrees inside Kalahari Resorts & Conventions and the other enormous indoor waterpark resorts in the Pocono Mountains.


New Woodland Villas


2022 was a big year for Great Wolf Lodge, with renovations and expansion projects in the works, like a new dining concept, grand lobby and expanded waterpark, plus groundbreaking on the new Woodland Villas.


Catching the Big One


Anglers reeled in some great catches on the lakes, rivers and creeks of the Poconos in 2022. Trout season officially starts in April, but there's no reason to wait to plan your next fishing expedition. Get bundled up and give ice fishing a try!


Race Weekend


NASCAR returned to Pocono Raceway this past summer for another memorable race weekend at "The Tricky Triangle." Save the date for 2023 NASCAR Race Weekend at Pocono Raceway happening July 21-23, 2023! Another great way to feel the thrill of the track firsthand is to book a stock car racing experience.


Off the Beaten Track


There are so many ways to explore the scenic natural beauty of the Poconos! Take a ride in an old-fashioned motorcycle sidecar with Jim Thorpe Sidecar Tourz to get a new view of the historic town of Jim Thorpe and the forests and back roads of Carbon County.


Testing the Limits


Participants in the Spartan Race at Blue Mountain Resort stretched their endurance and stamina to the max during an epic obstacle race. If improving your fitness is one of your new year's resolutions, make a plan and start training for next year's Poconos Spartan Event Weekend returning to Palmerton, PA on July 15-16, 2023.


Popping the Question


Congratulations to the many Pocono couples who put a ring on it this year! From the dramatic waterfall backdrop at Ledges Hotel to custom luxury picnic displays set against panoramic mountain vistas, our region is ideal for engagements, weddings and romantic getaways.


Stunning Fall Foliage


Every fall, the Poconos comes alive in a blaze of brilliant autumn color. In 2022, our region was once again voted the 3rd best destination in the country for fall foliage in USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Start planning your 2023 fall getaway to take some breathtaking photos like the one above, captured at Lehigh Gorge State Park.


All Aboard for Autumn Views


During a classic train tour with Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway, visitors experience the beauty of the surrounding landscape and the glamour of a bygone era all in one trip.
