There’s Plenty to Do for Your Thanksgiving Getaway

The Poconos region offers tons of fun things to do during the autumn months. The beautiful scenery is only 2 1/2 hours from New York City and 40 minutes from Scranton, PA. With such short drive times, why not plan your Thanksgiving getaway here? Here are a few extra reasons to plan your trip to the Poconos this Thanksgiving.

  • Miles of hiking trails and biking trails make this one of the most incredible places to go for Thanksgiving weekend. Bring your bikes or rent bikes and have a great time!
  • Horseback riding also gives you a great look at the scenery. Located at the highest point in the region, Triple W Stables is just a short drive from Silver Birches Resort.
  • Some of the Poconos’ most dramatic attractions are gorgeous waterfalls. People have traveled to see these beautiful waterfalls since the mid-19th century. Take a tour of the waterfalls in the vicinity!
  • The Hawley Silk Mill in Hawley, PA, is a massive, 75,000-square-foot bluestone building. Totally renovated with state-of-the-art technology and fiber-optics, the building is now home to several shops and galleries, Cocoon Coffeehouse and Bakery business offices, and Lackawanna College on the top floor. This historic building is home to some of the best shopping in the region.
  • Dining in the region is as delicious as the region is beautiful. During your stay at Silver Birches, you can stop by The Dock at Silver Birches and indulge in the lakefront view while you wine and dine on American classics. You may also want to check out the farm-to-table Restaurant at Settlers Inn. They are open for breakfast and dinner daily and brunch on the weekends.
