How to Have the Most Memorable Christmas in the Poconos 

Old Time Christmas Tours at Quiet Valley

Old Time Christmas Tours are a holiday tradition here in the Poconos. During the first two weekends in December, Quiet Valley offers guided lantern tours through the 19th-century farm. Enjoy a live barnyard Nativity scene, listen to the carolers, and learn about farm life in the 1820s. Then, do your holiday shopping and warm up with hot cocoa and cookies at the gift shop. It’s the perfect way to celebrate Christmas in the Poconos!

Jim Thorpe’s Olde Time Christmas

Jim Thorpe’s Olde Time Christmas is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season! Bring the whole family out for train rides with Santa, caroling, live entertainment, and plenty of Christmas shopping. The highlight of the event is the annual tree lighting ceremony in Josiah White Park.

Hawley Winterfest

Christmas in the Poconos is not complete without a visit to the annual Hawley Winterfest! This three-day holiday event is excellent for a fun family outing or a casual date. Take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride around town and then tour all the decorated historic homes. You can also enjoy ice-carving, delicious seasonal food, hot cocoa, arts and crafts, and endless holiday entertainment. There is even a Beer Tour and an ugly Christmas sweater party! 

Honesdale for the Holidays

One of the best things about Christmas is the shopping! If you still need to do your holiday shopping, head to Historic Honesdale for a delightful Winter Wonderland. You can listen to great holiday music while you browse through a wide variety of shops. There is also a Christmas tree lighting and an annual Santa Parade!
