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.

Challengers Outdoors Adventures, while the more sedate find

Hidden Lake, Lake Wallenpaupack, and the West Branch of the Delaware
River the BEST in the East. The rest leisurely explore the Delaware's

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
