Sometimes the best way to describe what it's like to live the Poconos is not to describe it at all—but to simply let you see things for yourself. Here are eight beautiful photos of the area that pretty much tell their own stories.
The Pocono Mountains are known for their beautiful waterfalls. Factory Falls, shown here, is just one set of incredible falls you can find throughout the region.

Even though there are plenty of places to hike and bike and fish throughout the Pocono Mountains, sometimes it's nice to simply sit and relax at the end of the day. For some, nothing is better than sitting at lakeside and watching the sunset. Pocono Pines and Lake Naomi are great spots for that activity.
