A great place to play! Tubing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming... A great and natural place to explore! I've photographed eagles grabbing fish, herons fishing, jumping fish, buzzing dragonflies, deer coming down for a drink at dusk... tons of beauty and relaxation! There is a swimming beach area at Smithfield Beach, in the national park.

This family if from South America and they dish up consistently good comfort food. This is not a Mexican restaurant, so all of the Mexican seasonings and chilies are absent. Get the Colombian sausage, the shrimp appetizer and the empanadas. We have fajitas there a lot! I've heard the churros are wonderful, but I am always too full to order them! Lovely family! The setting is a little dodgy, back in the parking lot of a derelict hotel, but just lock your doors and run into the safe haven! We've never had a problem!

Small movie theater, fairly kid oriented, but it's great for an ice cream stop! Also, if you like to eat while you watch a movie, they will deliver your food to you in the theater.

Neighborhoods
Stroudsburg has a decent downtown area. A few blocks of shops, art galleries and restaurants on the Main Street. A nice walk is up into the town where there are tons of gorgeous, historic houses. On the other side of town (Ann St.) you can check out the waterfalls.

Hiking/Walking Trails
The AT runs through this area along the top of the ridge that turns into Delaware Water Gap, follow the trail across the bridge to NJ, and you can hike up the Indian Head, to Sunfish Pond, or Mohican Peak. On the PA side you can pick it up just off of 611, in Delaware Water Gap (where there are water falls and great overlooks of the gap area) or on 191, at the top of Bangor Mountain.

This is a wonderful, wide trail that extends most the length of the park and provides views of the river, charming streams, open farm fields, forests, and historic landscapes. The trail offers hikers, bikers, and cross-country skiers areas of varied difficulty, from easy to strenuous. With trailheads distributed between ½ and 5 miles apart, this trail offers a section for just about any visitor. Additionally, most trailheads are along the park's free bus route that operates summer weekends.

Standing out in vivid contrast to the surrounding Pocono Mountains landscape, Tannersville Cranberry Bog provides a snapshot of colder times. Thousands of years ago, a large glacial lake occupied the space of what has since become a thick soup of peat moss. Today, while the ice and lake have long receded, the unique ecosystem that remains serves as the southernmost low elevation boreal bog along the eastern seaboard. It represents an intricate transformation that took place over the millennia and would be impossible to replace if destroyed. The Tannersville Cranberry Bog Preserve is one of The Nature Conservancy's first nature preserves in Pennsylvania. Over the years, careful stewardship by TNC, partners and the local community has yielded great returns as the bog soaks up rain and runoff like a giant sponge--cleansing water and controlling pollution throughout the Pocono Creek watershed.

Gorgeous hike (especially in autumn!). It is a rocky path, though, so wear sneakers, or hikers. Worthington State Park in NJ has a ton of great trails, beaches, etc.
