Playing Pokémon GO in the Pocono Mountains

Thursday, August 4, 2016 10:00 AM by Aimee Kohler

With four counties, 2,400 square miles, historic buildings and countless attractions, the Pocono Mountains is a pretty cool place to play Pokémon GO.

Our downtowns are swarmed with catchable creatures. Parks are doubling as gyms and landmarks as Pokéstops. It seems like everywhere you turn, there’s something to grab in the game. We say go for it, but look up from your phone once in a while. Our Pokéstops are awesome IRL.

For a day trip that's both exciting and educational, visit Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm. Step back in time and into the lives of 19th century Pennsylvania-German farmers. Tour their buildings, meet their animals, and get a sense of what life was like before the convenience of electricity.

Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm is open for summer tours from late June through Labor Day. Special events are scheduled throughout the year. View the photos below for a look at life on the farm, and plan your summer tour today!
