Outdoor Ceremony Venue in the PoconosPoconos Ceremony Venue
Ultimate Poconos Outdoor Ceremony Venue
The Pocono Mountains in northeast Pennsylvania have 2,400 square miles of natural landscapes, including spectacular mountain vistas, gushing waterfalls, lush woodlands, and 170 miles of meandering rivers. There’s much to do on a weekend break or a week-long vacation, whether you want to sip, taste, rest, or explore.
The Pocono Mountains were once regarded as the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” a designation given to them just after World War II. As GIs returned to New York City’s harbor, they were reunited with their sweethearts, married fast, and proceeded to adjacent Poconos resorts for their honeymoons.
What makes the Poconos so well-known?
The Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania have long been a popular vacation spot for those looking to unwind. In the early 1900s, the first resorts opened. It developed in popularity during the 1920s and 1930s, thanks to its theater and skiing, as well as resorts ranging from budget to luxury.
The Poconos cover 2,400 square miles and are home to four counties, two national parks, nine state parks, 150 lakes, 19 waterfalls, 170 miles of rivers, and seven ski areas.
