As the heat of summer fizzles away and autumn takes its place, the Thanksgiving holiday sits just on the horizon. It’s not an understatement to say that 2020 has been a year of challenges and now, perhaps more than ever, it’s important to take time to truly reflect on what’s important. This year consider taking your holiday of thanks to the next level of fun and scenic beauty, booking an unforgettable Thanksgiving in the Poconos with those you love. With summer travelers long returned home, Thanksgiving proves to be an incredible time to visit this area of the northeast U.S. Whether you’re one for taking advantage of the mountain trails and hills or can’t wait to savor time along waterways and in rich forests, the Poconos is a place where reflection is simple and it’s easy to be thankful for the good things in life.

Hike Bushkill Falls

For those that like to work up an appetite before Thanksgiving dinner, a hike to Bushkill Falls is bound to be an inspiring choice. This collection of 8 cascades in Lehman Township is a gorgeous landmark to enjoy over the holiday and promises to provide plenty of photo-worthy moments. Accessible by a variety of trails, some of the cascades that make up Bushkill Falls tumble from an impressive 100 feet up.
