Poconos Vacation

Enjoy a Poconos vacation in a sprawling 2400 square mile region bursting with natural beauty. Magnificent waterfalls, wooded mountains, and sparkling lakes combine to make the region a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates incredible natural beauty.

It is true that at one time, the area was known for tacky couples' resorts featuring mirrored wallpaper and heart-shaped bathtubs. I am happy to report that those days are gone! While you may stumble upon an old-time resort sporting 70s decor and those infamous tubs, the vast majority of resorts today offer upscale amenities and family friendly activities.
