The Poconos Mountains in Northeastern Pennsylvania boast of an exciting, amusement park-like region covering 2400 square miles with a variety of fun activities scattered throughout.
The Arrowhead Lakes region is situated along the southern tier of Rt I-80 and is famously called the “Ski region” because of its major ski resorts all located here. However, there is a northern region along Rt I-84 called the “lake region” with no big ski resorts but offering more and larger lakes.
There are endless activities to enjoy near Arrowhead, all within a 30-minute drive. This includes skiing at Jack Frost Ski Resort and Big Boulder Ski Resort, motor boating at Lake Harmony, and indoor water park fun at Split Rock Resort or the bigger but slightly expensive day visitor option at Kahahari resort.
You can explore 130 different restaurants from fast-food chains to smaller and more intimate dining options, go shopping at the Crossings Outlet Complex, or try your luck at Mt Airy Casino. NASCAR enthusiasts can enjoy the Pocono Raceway, while adventure lovers can go whitewater rafting, canoeing, and kayaking on the Lehigh River or explore the Camelback Adventure Park and Outdoor Water Park.
Golfers have a range of options to choose from with opportunities to tee-off at Jack Frost National Golf, Golf at Split Rock Resort or Pocono Manor Resort.
For those seeking thrills, there are ATV parks for four-wheeling, horseback riding, paintball, shooting ranges, and race car experiences. And that’s not all – you can also try your hand at activities like axe-throwing, snowmobiling or fishing in the community or at various state lakes.
Enjoy your stay in the Poconos Mountains!
