Things to Do In the Pocono Mountains
Visitors seeking an exciting vacation destination need look no farther than the Pocono Mountains.
A myriad of nature-filled activities await within a few hours' drive of most major Northeast cities, including overnight packages to bring out the hiker, botanist or water park lover in travelers of all ages. You can fulfill all of your vacation needs here, from the fast-paced excitement of your favorite outdoor activity, to the exceptional performances of our theaters and concerts. Tour a living history museum in the morning, unwind at a brew pub in the afternoon and dine in an elegant restaurant in the evening. Ski the slopes of a resort by day and relax in a historic bed & breakfast at night. Browse countless antique shops or search for a bargain in our outlet stores. Stretch out on a sandy beach at a lake or marvel at the sights while floating down a river. The choice is yours and the links on this page could open new doors to a memorable experience in the Poconos.
With Pocono meaning the "stream between two mountains,” the region encompasses 2,400 square miles of lakes, rivers and woodlands just waiting to be discovered.
Enjoy campfire-toasted marshmallows as you experience the outdoors firsthand at your campsite. Pack a lunch and travel around countless mountains, ravines and untouched wilderness. Nourish your soul while soaking in the majesty of a mountain vista. Listen to the birds as you float along the river.
After you've explored the tamer side of nature, why not try a walk on the wilder side. Bike through the gorge or navigate some single track. Feel your adrenaline rush as you raft down the rapids. Hike into nearly unexplored territory and discover tumbling waterfalls. Experience the wonder of a clear-bottom kayak. Test your lure as you catch largemouth bass, rainbow trout, walleye and countless other fish in our lakes and rivers. Whatever adventure you are looking for, the Pocono Mountains will help answer nature's call.
Concerts and plays are happening throughout the Pocono Mountains region year-round.
How about a live theater performance to stimulate the mind and spirit. Or check out where to hangout at night for some relaxation, fun and enjoyment.
The Poconos is rich in American heritage and history.
Many of the local historical societies maintain an impressive collection of museums - where pictures of our past remain preserved for all generations.
Brew Pub/Bar & Grill
For a casual and cool Pocono Mountains dining experience, look to the region’s brew pubs and grills.
Enjoy classic American cuisine and carefully crafted beverages in a welcoming mountain setting! Each Pocono Mountains bar and grill is as unique as the food and drinks it creates. Sample house-made artisanal beers at one of the region’s brew pubs, enjoy lakeside dining at a waterfront restaurant, or unwind to the sounds of live music during a weekend pub performance! Whether you’re looking for an après ski pint or an al fresco bite, the brewpubs and grills of the Pocono Mountains serve up great food and fun all through the year.
Restaurants and Dining
Pocono restaurants run the gamut from ethnic favorites like Thai to Italian, fine dining four-star cuisine to down-home family cooking.
The region's evolving restaurant scene goes well beyond a deli and cafe and brew pub or bar & grill. Expect the extraordinary in the Pocono Mountains, whether it's organic, local game, Chilled Strawberry & Rhubarb Soup or Roasted Lobster "Newburg".
Poconos chefs use flair and creativity to produce delicious dishes. There are several local farm to table restaurants, and the Pocono Mountains' downtowns are a great spot to relax at one of the many sidewalk cafes.

While here, visit a bakery for that special treat or make plans for your special event at a unique location. When enjoying the gaming scene, grab a bite at one of these casino dining options.
While shopping in the Poconos, you will see some of the sights we are famous for, like charming Victorian neighborhoods, historic sites, art galleries and downtowns.
Some enjoy the thrill of the hunt at a flea market, art gallery, or antique shop. Others prefer browsing in boutiques, craft and specialty shops. Still others get a kick out of finding outlet bargains. In the Pocono Mountains, shoppers of all sorts can indulge in their passion.
