Pocono Mountains, also known as the "Endless Mountains",
covers four counties in Pennsylvania, & this region is now
often referred to as "The Honeymoon Capital of the World"
or the "Land of Love". It all started in the mid-eighteen
hundreds with the construction of hotels in Delaware Water Gap.
Then described as the Ninth Wonder of the World. Presidents and
socialites from New York came by train to relax at these "Spa
resorts" and to enjoy the quiet clean Mountain air. Back
then, The Poconos Were the Place to Go to rejuvenate. In the mid-nineteen
forties Rudolf Von Hoevenberg opened "The Farm on the Hill",
which was the first honeymoon resort in the Poconos. In the late
40's & the 50's an increasing number of area resorts began
to target honeymooners. To this day, the Poconos are still a popular
place for honeymooners. But, part of the reason for the success
of this is the same as the appeal for our spa resorts.
the romantic appeal, the Pocono Mountains provides numerous activities
as well as beautiful scenery. There are over 8,000,000 tourists
here in the Poconos each year. The concern for preservation has
created 7 state parks, 72,000 acres of state forests, the 70,000
acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and numerous
state game lands. It is noted that the most scenic hiking trails
in the US are found in these mountains. There are trails ranging
in difficulty from calming strolls to rugged hikes. It is simply
a short distance for many city dwellers who are looking for a
