Picturesque Wayne County, Pennsylvania is one of the Northeast’s scenic gems, dotted with family-owned farms, pocket-sized museums, antiques stores, galleries and recreation areas. Located just 2½ hours from the New York City and Philadelphia areas, as well as major regional airports and local airstrips. Wayne County and the Pocono Mountains have long been a year-round destination for vacationing Northeasterners.
While Northeast Pennsylvania’s charming small towns and sweeping scenery feel worlds away, they’re really close enough for a quick day trip. Rich in history, culture and charm, the Poconos offer something for every taste, from high-octane outdoor adventure to low-key, laid-back lakeshore afternoons… whitewater rafting, tubing and skiing to antiquing, winery tours and delicious hidden restaurants.
Attractions in and around Wayne County include beautiful Bushkill Falls also known as the "Niagara of Pennsylvania" as well as the Dorflinger Glass Museum, Lake Wallenpaupack and the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located at the site of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Go fly fishing or boating on the Delaware River or explore Wayne County’s hiking and biking trails. Idyllic Honesdale, the county seat, is the birthplace of the American railroad and home to the classic children’s magazine Highlights, which is still produced in a historic home on Church Street.
Camp Towanda is located just 8 miles north of town in the rolling farm countryside on an inspirational dirt road, taking us back to the way life use to be!
