Resorts In Poconos Pennsylvania

Poconos resorts offer a variety of activities for families to enjoy.

The Pocono Mountain region in Pennsylvania was long known as a romantic getaway destination for couples. It reinvented itself in the 1980s and 1990s to become a place for families to vacation. “The New York Times” talked about yet another change for the Poconos, stating that “Much has been said of late about the Poconos going upscale, but the traditional style of fun in its mountain resorts hasn’t disappeared.”
