You can also stroll through the tracks and explore the Poconos mountains. It is a perfect pastime for couples and families who will enjoy an autumn ride on the train.
There are many train rides like Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway, which is only some distance away from our Luxury Green Valley Farm House for a 70-minute trip that travels along the river from Jim Thorpe through the Lehigh Gorge State Park.

6. Fun indoor activities
Whether you are with your family or with friends, you might be interested in more fun and adventurous activities during the day. In a place like the Poconos, where the temperatures start to drop during the fall, you might find it challenging to find fun activities and can be done indoors. Well, the good news is that there are a few big indoor water parks that might check your interest. These parks are as fun and entertaining during the fall as in summer.
7. Experience Poconos history with your family
