DELAWARE-WATER-GAP, PA

A July 2005 trip to Poconos by MRBOB63

Quote: An incredibly peaceful place only 1.5 hours from NYC. The area is filled with nature's best! I suggest rafting the Delaware River, as it is calm and a good pace for all level rafters. Try horseback riding in the woods, hiking the trails, or visiting timeshare resorts in that area.

Dine in an old train station building right on the tracks. Three large-scale trains run throughout the station, keeping kids' interest. Food is good and fairly priced.

The river is very calm and perfect for beginners. The scenery is spectacular. The water is crystal-clear in this area, and the fishing is excellent.
