Why People Are Moving to the Poconos from New York and Philadelphia

Posted by John Holahan on Apr 1, 2019 9:23:00 AM

Large metropolitan areas such as New York and Philadelphia have a lot to offer. They have an abundance of culture, great shopping, fine dining, and nightlife.

Others are moving to the region permanently—either to retire or simply to enjoy a different lifestyle. Here’s a look at why people are moving to the Poconos from New York and Philadelphia.
