Highlights: hiking / lake / antiques shopping / forest / cabin / rustic / American Food / outdoors
I always dreamed of owning an A-Frame cabin in the woods. But a vacation home is only as good as the land it sits on. The Pocono Mountains, or as locals call it – the Poconos, is the best weekend escape from New York City or Philadelphia.
Life in the forest may bring friendly foxes and adorable deer to your porch in the morning, but there are also a whole lot of incredible things to do in the Poconos during summer.
My map weaves a journey through several towns surrounding the Poconos area, all just a short drive from my A-Frame.
Try out traditional Mennonite farmer’s markets, hunt for antique furniture & treasures at a local flea market, go fly fishing, or just relax by one of the gorgeous lakes and enjoy some rustic American comfort food.
All places on my list are family-friendly, but they’re also perfect for a romantic couples’ getaway, with a few wineries for the adults. Listen. What’s that? The trees and fresh air are calling your name!
