Best Ways to Get Here...

For such a large area, covering four counties and 2400 square miles, it's interesting to note that there are no major airports within the confines of the Poconos.

There are, however, a number of International and Regional airports that are on the peripheral edges - and those serving metro New York. Bus service is also available from both Philadelphia and New York City for those who don't own a car.

Getting to the Poconos


Getting to the Poconos

Airports that surround the Poconos include:
Newark - EWR
La Guardia - LGA
JFK - JFK
Allentown - ABE
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre - AVP

My favorite is Newark, since most major cities in the US fly non-stop. And while Allentown and Scranton may be closer in miles to your final destination, the extra time involved in transfers and stop-overs actually ends up taking more time. There are exceptions, however, check to see if your local airport has any carriers that fly non-stop to Allentown or Scranton. If there are, compare prices and then factor in schedules, flight times, and aircraft.

By bus: The Trailways Martz lines service the Poconos from both NYC and Philadelphia.

By Car: Interstates 80 from East of West, I-84 from New England, I-83 from North or South - Also I-95 to the NE extension of the PA turnpike will get you here, too. Of course, maps at Google or MapQuest or your GPS will give you the best directions (normally).
