10 Ways to Spend Fall in the Poconos

If you want a great weekend away, look no further than Fall in the Poconos! Between Halloween fun, fall foliage and the food you’ll love it!

My family seems to never have enough time lately. It’s a common problem among other families I know too. That’s why this Fall, we packed in all of our seasonal favorites into one fun weekend in the Pocono Mountains. From pumpkin picking to corn mazes to hiking the fall foliage, we got do it just about all!

There is no shortage of ways to spend the Fall in the Poconos

Halloween Fun in the Poconos in the Fall 

We conquered Mazezilla, an 11 acre corn maze! My kids had an absolute ball and it was really nice to enjoy some family fun together. While there is a fee to conquer the maze, there was so many free activities for the kids to enjoy too!

We highly recommend picking some pumpkins while you are at Mazezilla at Klingel’s Farm too!

While in the Poconos you would be remiss if you missed out on “The Niagara of Pennsylvania” – Bushkill Falls. Our family found hiking highly rewarding.

Downtown Milford is a quaint little town nestled in the Poconos. There are some little shops and restaurants and makes the perfect place to come and relax for lunch or coffee after a morning of hiking Bushkill Falls.

The last time my husband and I were in Jim Thorpe was about 14 years ago when we went white water rafting. This time, we did something a little more low key and enjoyed the Fall Foliage Festival before getting taste of the beauty and charm of the town and fall foliage aboard the Lehigh Gorge on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway.

Enjoy the good food and wine while in the Pocono Mountains!

I absolutely love exploring vineyards. They all have such a unique story. I loved hearing how Linda Rice and her husband fell in love with wine making during a trip to the Finger Lakes in upstate New York and then went on to fulfill their dreams to open Mountain View Vineyard. Their vineyard was so beautiful and I loved sitting on their wood porch enjoying the sights and smells of the Poconos in the Fall.

Before you head over to Camelback Mountain Adventures you should definitely enjoy dinner at the Barley Creek Brewing Company & Distillery right down the street. First of all, their Halloween decor is on point and they had some of the best food my family has enjoyed in a long time!

I enjoyed the Mountain View Vineyard’s wine so much, I ordered a glass at dinner at Barley Creek!

Of course, you need somewhere to lay your head at the end of the day. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Stroudsburg, PA. We are big fans of staying at the Fairfield Inn. We loved so much about this location. It was centrally located to the highway, as well as an array of shops and restaurants.

My kids loved the cookies that were in the lobby all day, I loved the 24 hour free coffee and water. There was a great indoor pool and a fire pit outside.
