When you start to think about your next vacation, there are so many things to plan that it can get a tad stressful. The first thing to think about is where to go. Many people enjoy going to the beach during the warmer months while others enjoy the cool and relaxing mountains. Here in the Northeast, one of the best places to enjoy a weekend getaway is here in the Pocono Mountains. We have been known for years as a fun place to go and we at Ledges Hotel want to help you plan the first of many Pocono weekend getaways for you to enjoy.
Pocono Weekend Getaway for the Adventurous
The thought of going away and not having some kind of adventure makes a trip not seem worthwhile. When you plan your many Pocono weekend getaways, know that adventure is right around the corner. One company that can give you a thrill is Kittatinny. They have many different trips that can satisfy anyone’s wild spirit. The first is a river trip. You can choose from white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking or even tubing. They have rentals and tours thought out that are spectacular. If you prefer staying on dry land, they have two to choose from. You can either go paintballing or you can see a whole new side to the Pocono Mountains from their dual zip lines.
Pocono Weekend Getaway for the Nature Lover
For some of us, the only thing we want to of when we get away is to enjoy the nature scenes around us. When you plan these kinds of Pocono weekend getaways, there is always something new to discover each time and each season of the year. One of the first places we suggest is the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary. They have several trails to choose from or to link up to make a fantastic walk. The sanctuary is a place that is simply left in peace to allow the natural residents to have a wonderful and safe home. Along the same lines is the Lacawac Sanctuary and Biological Field Station. They have over 500 acres for you to explore and be sure to check out their lake, it truly is stunning. They have trails filled with flora and fauna for you to see. It truly is a relaxing place. Lastly, many enjoy being on the water here in the Pocono mountains and can easily do so when you take a boat tour of our nearby Lake Wallenpaupack. When you book a trip or a rental with Wallenpaupack Boat Tours you can choose to have them take you around or snag a rental and explore on your own!
Pocono Weekend Getaway for the Art Connoisseur
When you are surrounded by beautiful nature scenes, the art naturally comes with it too. In our own Ledges Hotel, we have many art pieces by local artists and you can find more in our local art galleries as well. If you are looking for a day trip for a bit of art as well as history, then we suggest planning a day at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. They always have some wonderful event or festival going on as well as their amazing museum. It’s dedicated to the 1969 Woodstock Art and Music Festival and is very interactive so you will get to learn many things about that time that you may not know.
