The Poconos are the Best Winter Getaway from New York
Famous for its gorgeous views, hiking, and relaxed mountain towns, the Poconos region makes the perfect winter getaway from New York. While you’re there, there are certain places you’ll want to make sure to visit. Here are our highlights.
- On a milder winter day, take a hike to see frozen waterfalls in the region. The waterfalls in the Poconos are so famous, that people have been traveling to see them for over a century. The region is home to so many waterfalls because the tributaries of the Delaware River have to travel over the rocky terrain of the Poconos to reach the river. You won’t be disappointed by the spectacle of huge icicles and winter scenery when you take a waterfall tour in the Poconos!
- Relax in the quaint atmosphere of Cocoon Coffee House in Hawley. Whether you are a coffee snob or love a good latté, beginning your adventure at Cocoon Coffee House is the perfect pick-me-up to power you through the day. With locations at Silver Birches Resort (formerly Ehrhardt’s) and the Hawley Silk Mill, you can find the best fair-trade coffee in the area just minutes away.
- Celebrate the holidays at the Hawley WinterFest. The festivities begin in early December as the community of Hawley welcomes the holidays! Enjoy the jolly spirit with delicious holiday fare, carols, a children’s show at the community theatre, artists and authors mingling with festival-goers, ice carving, gingerbread decorating, holiday house tours, and more! You won’t want to miss it!
- Unwind by Lake Wallenpaupack next to the outdoor fireplace at Silver Birches Resort. Warm your hands with hot coffee from Cocoon Coffee House at Silver Birches and get cozy by the fire. The winter wonderland that is Silver Birches makes the perfect setting for a wonderful winter getaway from New York.
