Happy New Year
With the flip of the calendar to 2020, the Pocono Mountains continues to gain momentum in respect to growth and collaboration that keeps increasing the appeal for those of us who live here and the millions of visitors each year.
To that end, we have a great deal to celebrate in this coming year including the expansions, renovations and new building projects that improve the Poconos lifestyle we’ve come to love. For instance, it wasn’t but a handful of years ago that Kalahari Resorts & Conventions made its grand arrival and now, the property has doubled its convention space to 205,000 square feet! That should pay dividends for years to come as another world class destination for family vacations as well as association and corporate meetings of all sizes.
Then there are the new investments in two ski resorts, Camelback and Jack Frost/Big Boulder, thanks to new ownership and a commitment to providing the best facilities and experiences anywhere. This year, our area is also fortunate to see the opening of Pocono Mountain Harley Davidson, a huge destination in its own right for Harley owners around the globe. The massive facility towers over Interstate 80 in Tannersville and will be yet another example of the continued growth in our region now and in the future.
2020 may have just begun, but the Pocono Mountains success story is still being written and I thank everyone for playing a role in it.
