Get ready for an exciting winter getaway to the Poconos this year. You will not find a quiet and sleepy town but instead a sprawling outdoor adventure destination eagerly awaiting you. The locals know how to have fun and will show visitors what to do. Here is what you can enjoy during your Poconos getaway this winter season:
Winter Sports Everywhere
The winter season comes alive with thrilling winter sports that can be enjoyed on local peaks. The Pocono
Mountains are set up perfectly for never-ending fun in the snow. Nearby mountains that features various ski trails include Camelback Mountain, Shawnee Mountain, and Blue Mountain. Ski resorts are all over the Poconos and with them come ski lifts to take you up the mountains. All the resorts offer daily passes so you can ski for a full day. Make sure to grab all the gear you need from local shops, many of which even offer daily rentals. Make sure to take it slow on the bunny hills first or take in-depth lessons to help you get started.
Ice Skating Paradise
The Poconos offers multiple spots where you can enjoy seasonal ice skating. Tobyhanna State Park is a great place to get started for outdoor ponds. However, ice skaters will be at their own risk as ice thickness is not monitored; ice skating with someone else is always recommended. For a safer route, try out one of the many indoor ice skating rinks in town.
In Time for the Holidays
It would not be the winter season without a plethora of winter events in the Poconos. You can celebrate Christmas and New Year’s in style with in-town celebrations. Winter concerts will feature all of your favorite holiday carols. The Hawley Winterfest is an incredible town celebration that features activities such as sleigh rides and more.
Stay Warm at the Brewery
Keep warm during the winter by visiting one of the hundreds of breweries found around Pennsylvania, many of which can be found just a few minutes away. Come see all the local favorite spots such as Susquehanna Brewing Company and try out their handmade craft beers. Take home a growler to enjoy at your vacation rental too!
