Summer may be prime vacation time for beach locations, but fall is the most impressive season in the Poconos. Maples, oaks and birch trees explode with color, their leaves bursting in gold and crimson until the winter drop. It’s the time for sipping hot cider and breaking out the sweaters. If you’re headed to the Poconos in Pennsylvania this fall, here are a few of the activities and sights to expect.
It’s time. You have the perfect partner by your side – the one who cheers you up after a hard day at work, brings you soup when you’re sick and, frankly, makes every day just a little better with their presence. Now, you’re ready to take the next step.
Fall is a beautiful time to visit the Poconos Mountains. The forests are awash with bright earth tones, the air is crisp, and travelers indulge in pumpkin spice lattes and campfire cookouts. Families gear up for the winter, and look forward to holidays filled with comfort foods like turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce.
One community group in the Poconos has taken treasure hunting to a new level. Hidden around town – on courthouse steps, outside of stores, on sidewalks and even in the woods – are “Kindness Rocks.” These colorful, hand-painted stones are part of a national movement that combines scavenger hunting with the drive to make people happier. The idea is that finding one of these rocks emblazoned with a child’s drawing or an upbeat saying like, “Don’t ever dull your sparkle!” will lift your spirits.
