4) Visit the best shops and local restaurants:

A nice thing about the Pocono’s is we have a little bit of everything, including some neat shops and restaurants. Being a some-what small town area some of these local spots are not the easiest to find without someone pointing them out.

5) Horseback Riding:

A great activity for any season is visiting the horseback riding stables near the Poconos, get your girlfriends together, and experience the adventure of riding a horse on trails through the Pocono Mountains. 

Mountain Creek Riding Stable

Mountain Creek Riding Stable is located in Cresco (very close to Callie’s and other Mountainhome sites), here we offer a beginner paced horseback ride consisting of walking and some trotting. The ride takes 45-50 minutes and crosses through a creek onto a 3-mile wooded trail. You are accompanied by our experienced trail guides along the entire ride. We will take children as young as 7 and 50 inches tall, for anyone too young or that isn’t up to riding yet we also offer horse-drawn wagon rides on Sundays.

Grab your favorite ladies and get this girl’s getaway started!
