Mount-Pocono is located in Monroe County in the heart of the Pocono Mountains region of northeastern Pennsylvania. As of the 2000 census, the borough had a population of 2,742. The Poconos region is famous for its' natural beauty - mountain vistas, peaceful valleys, rushing rivers and waterfalls. Just a few of the outdoor activities in the area include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, skiing and golf. For those who aren't the outdoorsy type, the Mount Pocono region is also filled with fine dining and accommodations, historic bed and breakfasts, luxurious spas, resorts and other attractions. It's easier to say "what's not in the Poconos?" You can go to the theater or attend a concert, tour a living history museum or a brew pub, shop at outlet stores for great bargains, even attend a recreational cooking school. In the summer, relax on a beach or float on a tube down a river. In the wintertime, the Poconos are famous for its' ski resorts. Not just alpine skiing, but sledding, tubing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, ice skating, ice fishing, cross-country skiing - even dog sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides. The Poconos are home to over 185 slopes and trails, for every level, expert to beginners. Or, simply snuggle up by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate and watch the action outside. No matter what your interests, the Poconos has something for everyone, which is why it's Pennsylvania's most visited tourist destination.
