Since school is around the corner, that also means fall is too. Here in the Pocono Mountains, we welcome autumn with open arms. The cool nights spent with friends and loved ones is amazing. During the day, there are so many ways to enjoy the weather. One, in particular, is a festival. In the autumn, there are many events and festivals to fill your days. The Honesdale Fall Festival is one that embodies everything we love about fall. Read on to see how we at Ledges Hotel love to spend our fall days here in the Pocono Mountains.

Other Activities in Autumn
The Stourbridge Line
If you are looking to enjoy everything that the Pocono Mountains has to offer in the fall, we recommend a trip on the Stourbridge Line. They have many options for scenic routes. Many of them go between Hawley and Honesdale which is a great way to see both towns. Tickets aren’t expensive. They are anywhere between $20 and $25.
While you are here in the Pocono Mountains, we suggest you take some time to see our area. This can be best done by having a scenic walk on our many trails. Some take you into the mountains, others can be a quiet stroll around Lake Wallenpaupack. We have many ideas for you. All of them can be found in our Vacation Guide. Be sure to grab yours today!
