In the middle of winter, there’s plenty that gets us through to the warmer months of spring and summer here in the Pocono Mountains. For one, we have a plethora of options for enjoying the outdoors this time of year with ski resorts, state and national parks as well as frozen lakes and ponds for skating or ice fishing. Indoors, there are shops and eateries in our unique downtowns which are scattered throughout the Poconos. Bigger attractions sport some rather comfortable temperatures and lots to do from splashing around to bet- ting it big. But maybe one of the most steadfast things that helps us through this chilly season is the love we find in our various relationships.
Mid-month is when St. Valentine and Cupid spark showings of affection for couples and families all over the world. In this corner of the world, we cater to these relationships and have for generations. Whether it was a G.I. and his sweetheart after WWII or honeymooners seeking a romantic destination, this season of love has been an integral part of our hospitality industry. Keep in mind, changes over the course of time have expanded upon the ways the industry fosters a love for this place, as well as for each other no matter if it’s family, friends, business relationships or worshippers on retreat. This truly is a region built on love for the beauty around us and sharing that with people who choose to experience it in the Poconos.
