We are confused on areas especially that fit our limited budget. But still we want some place for kids and dogs to run. If anyone has some insite please let me know.

Try the Blakeslee area....(2) ski resorts...Jack Frost Big Boulder | jack frost big boulder + where snow comes first Try Arrowhead Lakes, Wagners Forest, Locust Lakes, Towamensing Trails, Holiday Pocono....many places to see & explore. Close to state parks..Hickory Run. The Lehigh River is close by....crime tends to be lower in the "west end" of the Poconos. Good Luck.

kpearl, You have already received some good suggestions. If you want more dialog, you may want to post your question in the Northeastern PA subsection of the PA forum. Lots of Pocono dwellers there!

Also, you can do a search in that forum and find a great deal of info about local crime areas.

Best wishes on your search!!
