Soak in the Summer
Find thrilling outdoor adventures and vibrant small town happenings in the Pocono Mountains.
Grab your friends for an unforgettable road trip or treat yourself to a solo vacation: the Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania is a picture-perfect backdrop for warm weather getaways. About a two hours' drive from New York and Philadelphia, our 2,400 square miles of unspoiled natural beauty are home to countless ways to get outside and enjoy the summer.
Take on the mighty Lehigh River during a whitewater rafting trip over Class II and III rapids or take things at a slower pace as your group floats with the current down the Delaware River during a canoeing or kayaking expedition. Try hiking or biking in our national, state and local parks to discover gorgeous panoramic views of the region or kick the adrenaline up at the largest paintball facility in the world.
Raise a glass to great memories: local breweries offer one-of-a-kind craft beers you have to try. Set out along the Pocono Beverage Trial to sample vintages and spirits at atmospheric wineries and distilleries as well. Many locations offer live music, and there are constantly new and unique events and festivals coming to the area's charming and historic small towns.
When it's time to find a place to stay for the night, why not try a twist on a classic? Gather around the campfire and pick your perfect style of camping experience. Trendy glamping resorts offer the best of both worlds: a chance to immerse yourself in nature without giving up any creature comforts.
