Pennsylvania is the perfect place for a laid back resort getaway. There’s a surprising amount of things to do in the wilderness outside the cities, with forests, rivers, and mountains at your fingertips, including the popular Poconos. And a few of these resorts are considered to be the best in the country… and even the world.
Most of them combine a woodsy, rustic lodge vibe with a bit of luxury and a great spa. They often offer water sports, golf, and fishing, but some also have casinos, lively entertainment, and fine cuisine. From couples retreats to family vacations, Pennsylvania resorts can give you whatever it is you’re looking for.
Lets have a look at the best resorts in Pennsylvania:
