The Best Resorts On The Pocono Mountains

The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania are an ideal location for kicking back and taking a vacation. Located only a couple hours away from major cities like Philadelphia and New York, the Pocono Mountains are a great place to go and enjoy nature, without having to fly or drive several hours away. If you’re a city dweller looking for some outdoor fun and relaxation, there are several resorts on the mountain perfect for doing just that. Here are a few of the best ones.

Bear Creek Resort

This 116 room resort is the perfect place to go skiing, tubing, and just experience the great outdoors. While you’re there enjoy its many amenities, including fireplaces in several of the rooms and frequent special events. Bear Creek is also a year round resort, so if the cold isn’t your thing, you can visit the resort all year round!

Blue Mountain Ski Resort

If you love to ski/snowboard, Blue Mountain is definitely the resort for you. Enjoy Pennsylvania’s largest vertical drop at nearly 1100 ft! If you’ve already used up all your time off at work (or just wanna get out and have some fun one day) you can get half day skiing passes or night time skiing passes, so no need to wait till you can finally use that paid time off at work.

Jack Frost and Big Boulder

These two ski areas area fairly close to each other, and each have their own appeal. Jack Frost is the ideal location for casual skiing and snowboarding, while Big Boulder is great for more advanced skiing fun. Make sure you catch both during the winter, since these resorts are closed during the other seasons.

Camelback Resort

With over 160 acres of skiable terrain, Camelback Resort makes for an amazing vacation spot. The lodge at the resort has great amenities too, such as full kitchens and fireplaces.
