Winter - Father Time rewards us with 60 more daylight minutes
of playtime, Mother Nature flirts with enticing 65 degree
temperatures, and the countryside lures us with lush, fragrant,
green mountains. We at PoconosBest.com wonder, can the outdoors
be any more appealing during spring than in the Poconos? Perhaps,
but surpassing the recreational possibilities centered around
150 lakes, 13 waterfalls, and 170 river miles
highlighting 2,400 square miles of natural charm
is a tall order--anywhere.
the water? Thrill seekers raft
the picturesque Lehigh Gorge at Whitewater
Challengers Outdoors Adventures, while the more sedate
find fishing such favorite spots as Brady's Lake, Peck's
Pond, Hidden Lake, Lake Wallenpaupack, and the West Branch
of the Delaware River the BEST in the East. The rest leisurely
explore the Delaware's splendor at a paddle's pace with Kittatiny
Canoes. But, if you prefer a family picnic beside a waterfall,
we've got two suggestions:
Park (non-commercial) and Bushkill
Falls, both mesmerizing wonders.
the drier side, a sunny round on one of the many fine area golf
courses is a given: Hideaway Hills,
Cliff Park, and Buck Hills Golf Club are suggestions.
And for those weak for a different passion, honeymooning at any
of the four exquisite Caesars' Resorts
can keep any relationship on track. Returning to outdoor
activity, however, horseback riding along scenic country trails
at Mountain Creek Riding Stables
is a must for folks into that sort of thing; we suggest the up-close
and personal captivation of nature's rebirth hiking (some of)
the 25 miles along the Appalachian Trail. The faster crowd finds
biking in the Jim Thorpe area outstanding.
as the day ends, there remains plenty of nightlife, good food,
and accommodations from quaint to luxurious. PoconosBest: rates
Skytop highest for family resorts.
For eateries with ambiance, here's the short list: Stroudsmoor
for Easter dinner and any Sunday Brunch; The
Stone Bar for lunch and dinner; Alaska
Pete's for the same and barroom party atmosphere
truth, there's so much to do in this special time of year, you'll
just have to keep coming back to hit all the best spots. And
when you do, live, love, have fun, splurge a little, spoil yourselves,
and enjoy springtime in the Poconos (has a nice ring to
it, don't you think?) because it is, like the movie title says,
"as good as it gets."
