Outlet Mall
“Don't leave the Poconos until you shop here, and be prepared to fill the trunk up with great deals. It has a great location just off the highway. They even have a small playground for the kids. Advice: Make sure to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers because is a lot of walking from store to store. And go early to beat the crowds!”

Trail
“One of our favorite places to go for many years, it has a 100-ft. waterfall plus trails, fishing, boating and other family-friendly activities. About 1 hour from the condo, but well worth the trip if you like the outdoors and views of the mountains. Call ahead to check on whether it is open, as it is probably closed from November until April, but their schedule is flexible depending on the weather.”
