THIS WEEK…Start Exploring Events to Make You Want to Stay

The Pocono Mountains—a magnificent vacation destination with tons of ideas for recreation. A view into a few “why’s” illustrates events and opportunities that are igniting Spring enthusiasm for fulltime or second home “stays”.

As March maneuvers more than a few green-themed scenes across the region; it stands to reason Irish Fest cultivates plans to invest time in Jim Thorpe. A beautiful historical mountainside destination, this quaint town, bustling with culture, creates the perfect situation for Irish Fest’s two-weekend attraction March 9-10 and 16-17.

Premiere Sponsor, Liberty Homes Custom Builders, agrees the festivities awesomely introduce visitors to a tour of how great mountain living can be. Sure, with a name like Holahan there may be some favoritism for this particular tourism attraction; but Liberty’s John Holahan enthusiastically suggests Irish Fest’s strolling musicians, Celtic performers; plus, restaurants and shop stops are “Fun everyone can enjoy.”

For those who may be considering long-term stays after experiencing play, Kalahari resort hosts March 23 and 24’s Greater Pocono Home & Outdoor Living Show. A two-day attraction that “Inspires homeowners with countless ideas” featuring exhibits from area pros with demos; displays and more; Saturday 9a.m. to 5p.m. plus Sunday 9 to 4.

So Mar(ch) your calendar for these inspirations to see the why setting up roots in the Pocono Mountains is an investment in a future of fulltime recreation.
