6 Reasons Why a trip in November to the Poconos is a Perfect Idea

Go Sightseeing as the Leaves are Falling

The leaves are changing color, and the scenery is breathtaking when you go sightseeing in the Poconos. Despite the colder temperatures, November is one of the best times to witness the natural beauty of the Poconos. Watch as lakes start to freeze, animals change colors, and forests shed their leaves with a hot chocolate in hand.

Cooler Weather

The weather is cooling down, but not unbearably so as it can be in the later winter months. You should definitely pack warm clothes as we are in the mountains so the weather is always a bit colder, and be sure to always check before you leave if it is going to snow as it can sometimes in late November.

Fun Fall Events

Many seasonal events take place in November, such as the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Stroudsburg and the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Jim Thorpe which are a lot of fun to experience with friends, family, and the lovely people of Pennsylvania.

Discounted Shopping

November is famous for its Black Friday Shopping deals, and the Poconos are no exception to the rule! You can find deals on things to do, souvenirs to take home, and on the usual suspects like clothes and electronics.

Enjoy Seasonal Food

November is a great time to try some of the delicious local food and wines the Poconos offer. Thanksgiving food obviously overshadows everything else in November, but don’t feel limited by the turkey when other local options are available.
