"The Pocono Mountains Region of PA" Mount Pocono by Ewingjr98

Mount Pocono Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 13 photos

The Poconos is a beautiful hilly region of Pennsylvania full of old resorts, ski slopes, and state parks. This has long been a favorite vacation destination for those from New York and Philadelphia. In fact, 80 percent of the state's vacation resorts are in the Poconos. This region is also a prime hunting area, and it is home to Pocono Raceway, a triangular oval used for two NASCAR races each summer.

When I lived in Boston, I frequently drove through the Poconos as a scenic alternative to the high-traffic areas of I-81 around Wilkes Barre & Scranton. I also attended a wedding in the Poconos in 2008.
