Posted by: Jalissa Kuehner
We put together all of the information you need to know about why so many people love living in the Poconos, and why so many people relocate to the Poconos!
If you appreciate all four seasons, the Poconos is definitely the destination for you. We have so many fun things to do in the Poconos all year round. Take a look below on why the Poconos is so popular in the United States and also world-renowned!
Natives to the Poconos love their food and places to unwind! Downtown Stroudsburg is in Pennsylvania’s Pocono region, and has a bunch of delicious, up-beat restaurants. A few fan favorites are Siamsa Irish Pub, The Sarah Street Grill, Newberry’s Yard Of Ale, The Charcuterie and much more! If you enjoy a cozy café, definitely checkout Café Duet. If you are a wine or beer connoisseur, checkout Renegade Winery and Downriver Brewing Co. If it’s a date night, girls night, guys night or just a stroll for a good cup of coffee, Downtown Stroudsburg is where you want to be!
Commute to New York and New Jersey
If you love working in the city, but want to live your life in the country with the fresh air and large outdoor space, the Poconos is for you! You can have the best of both worlds, because the Poconos is just a little over 60 miles outside of NY and NJ. Instead of living in such close proximities to other people in the city, the deer and wildlife can be your next-door neighbors!
It is no secret that the cost of living in the Poconos is much more cheaper than areas in New York and New Jersey. A lot of commuters are surprised with how much more they can afford! There are also lower tax rates, how refreshing! You now just might be able to afford that new boat you wanted!
Gorgeous All Year Round
In the Poconos, you get to enjoy all four seasons. That means the warm sunshine in the summer, the leaves falling and changing colors in the fall, the snow in the winter, and the flowers blooming in the spring! It’s not only gorgeous to watch, we also have exciting activities for every single season! Here in the Poconos, we celebrate it all.
Things To Do
In the winter we have mountains to ski and snowboard on such as Camelback Mountain Resort, Shawnee Mountain Ski Area and Blue Mountain Resort. If you like four wheeling and snowmobiling, we have the area for that, too! There are resorts such as Great Wolf Lodge Water Park, Kalahari, Split Rock and much more for you to enjoy all year round. In the summer we have white water rafting, kayaking, boating, fishing, parasailing, exciting outdoor patio-seating restaurants, wineries, breweries and so much more!
We could go days for talking about why the Poconos is not only an exciting place to visit, but to also live in. If you are considering moving to the Poconos, we suggest you start here!
