Grab your friends for an unforgettable road trip or treat yourself to a solo vacation or workcation: the Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania is a picture-perfect backdrop for cold 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 winter season.
Don't let the frosty temperatures keep you indoors! Make the most of the season with a visit to our six ski areas, and spend a day flying over the slopes while skiing or snowboarding or snow tubing.

Snowshoeing and winter horseback riding allow you to take your time and truly savor the magic of the icy fields and forests.
Raise a glass to great memories: set out along the Pocono Beverage Trail to sample hand-crafted beers, vintages and spirits at atmospheric breweries, wineries and distilleries. It's the perfect way to warm up after a day out in the chilly weather.
