About the Pocono Mountains
Each season the Poconos lives up to its promise... the spring is fresh, lively and green; the summer fragrant, warm and inviting; the fall plentiful, colorful and sweet; and the winter pure, silent and majestic. Festivals, activities, indoor and outdoor life never slow.
Hundreds of events and activities take place in the Pocono Mountains each year. Music or ethnic festivals, holiday celebrations, sidewalk sales, whitewater rafting days and NASCAR are some of the exciting events that make the Poconos so popular.
