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.
