Poconos, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
The summer tourist season has officially begun for Pennsylvania’s Poconos Mountains region and local tourism and real estate experts predict that it will be a busy one this year. Many owners of Poconos vacation homes will doubtless be staying for anything from a few days to a few weeks in order to enjoy what the region has to offer, according to local real estate expert Terry Muller.
“Summer in the Poconos is not to be missed,” says Muller, a leading realtor specializing in homes for sale in Poconos, PA. “Our region is home to cool, forested mountains, miles of winding rivers, and around 150 lakes, the most famous of which is Lake Wallenpaupack, one of the state’s largest lakes. There’s no better place to escape the heat of the cities and it has the added advantage of being no more than a two-hour drive from both the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas.”
Many of those who opt for Poconos vacation homes for sale, in fact, come from urban areas in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and the region has been a popular vacation destination since the 19th century. Encompassing an area that’s more than 2,000 square miles in size, it includes communities within the counties of Wayne, Pike, Monroe, Lackawanna and Carbon.
“The Poconos is a four-season destination,” says Muller, “and it’s really a great place to visit anytime. Now that its summer, you can explore more than 250 miles of hiking and biking trails, golf in more than 35 golf courses, go fishing or whitewater rafting, and more. Many of the area’s resorts, hotels and inns have also added improvements and completed renovations just in time for the start of the season.”
