Find It on the Mountain
Origin of the Poconos
Pocono is a funny sounding word, but did you know it’s Native American meaning is stream between two mountains?
The Delaware Water Gap is the origin, named for the area where the Delaware River cut a gap between two mountains. The Pocono Mountains has over 67,000 acres of wide-open space to explore and is home to resorts, spas, outdoor adventures, and more. Check out stock-car racing in Long Pond, PA, or whitewater rafting in the funky town of Jim Thorpe.
