There is something truly magical about a holiday stay in the Pocono Mountains. This winter paradise is the perfect destination to avoid the high speed life in the big city and escape to the mountains. Here is what makes the Poconos the perfect holiday destination for the upcoming Poconos winter season:
A White Christmas
If you live in a city where it does not typically snow around the holidays, you are in luck when visiting the Pocono Mountains. Our lovely area is home to over 185 different skiing trails throughout the winter season. Snow is very common around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, so you can expect some picture-perfect photos during your stay.
Plenty of Poconos Winter Activities
As mentioned, it is very common to find snow in the Pocono Mountains during the winter season. Our winter trails make the Poconos one of the most popular winter destinations around the holidays. Try your skills on the nearly unlimited number of skiing trails found on the mountains. If you have never skied before, have no fear, as local shops provide introductory lessons throughout the season and provide you with the gear you need. Additional activities include dog sledding, sleigh rides, ice skating, snowmobiling, and much more.
Holiday Events You Will Enjoy
Holidays in the Poconos are about more than just enjoying the Poconos winter sports we have available. There are plenty of holiday themed events taking place around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. One of the most popular events is the Tree Lighting Celebration over in Stroudsburg. Over 150,000 Christmas lights will be lit up on the tree in addition to fireworks in the sky. The young children will love meeting Santa at the Breakfast with Santa and Santa Express events.
Nothing goes better with the holidays than a delicious feast with which to celebrate. Local restaurants provide all the meals you need so you do not have to worry about cooking during your well-deserved vacation. Candlelight dinners are available at select restaurants on Christmas Eve and Christmas, so make sure you reserve your table in advance!
