Artsy Stroudsburg Juxtaposing historical buildings from centuries ago with contemporary, hip businesses, Stroudsburg is a town where old and new, traditional and avantgarde mix effortlessly. Stroll down the townâ€™s main street, past the Stroud Mansion, built in 1795, and the Wallace Hardware Building that dates back to the mid-1800s and grab a Cappuccino at Starbucks. Pop into Dunkelbergers Sports Outfitters and pick up the perfect outfit for every sporting occasion and a night on the town. Enjoy tapas and cocktails at Liquid or an elegant dinner at Willowtree Inn. As the cultural epicenter of the Pocono Mountains, Stroudsburg is home to the Pocono Arts Council, which sponsors a wide range of art classes and events for adults and children. Art galleries featuring local artists are interspersed throughout town. The School of Visual and Performing Arts, Sherman Theatre and Muses, Graces & Fates Academy of the Performing Arts also contribute to the creative consciousness that infuses Stroudsburg with richness and relevancy. Located five miles from the Delaware Water Gap, Stroudsburg is situated at the confluence of the Pocono and Brodhead Creeks. Famous residents of Stroudsburg include PBSâ€™s Schoolhouse Rock! creator Bob Dorough. From New York, Stroudsburg is a mere 90-minute drive, 55 minutes from Scranton and less than two hours from Philadelphia.

Delaware Water Gap A haven for artists, musicians and adventure sports enthusiasts, the town of Delaware Water Gap is blessed with an exquisite location and abundant natural beauty. Geologically, the Delaware Water Gap, which lies on the border between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is the point where the Delaware River cuts through a large ridge of the Appalachian Mountains. As a recreational area, the Water Gap, which is part of the national parks system, draws visitors for a wide array of outdoors activities, including white water rafting, tubing, swimming, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, birding and horseback riding. Quaint bed and breakfasts and country inns characterize Delaware Water Gap. June 30 is Delaware Water Gap Founders Day. Each September the town hosts “Celebration of the Arts,” which brings together musicians, dancers, poets and filmmakers for a three-day artistic feast. Year-round, internationally-renowned jazz musicians perform at the Deer Head Inn on Main Street, the country’s oldest continuously running jazz club.
Founders Day Celebrations Delaware Water Gap Founders Day, June 30, is a day of celebrations taking place throughout the borough from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Festivities include a pancake breakfast at the firehouse, custom and classic car show, fine arts and crafts, rubber duck race on Cherry Creek, live music, shopping and fantastic food. See the whole area with a ride on the Delaware Water Gap Trolley. Ride the excursion train from Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton to the Gap. One of the most picturesque towns in the Poconos, Delaware Water Gap offers a wealth of cultural and recreational activities set within sight of the Appalachian Trail.

4 th of July Fun: Fi reworks, Fes t ivals & Parades As the quintessential 4th of July celebration, fireworks filling the night sky never cease to awe. The first Independence Day was celebrated with bonfires, bells and fireworks on July 4, 1777 in Philadelphia. The Pocono Mountains, less than 100 miles from the birthplace of Independence, likewise boast a long history of patriotic festivities that make this region the ideal place to celebrate Independence.
Shawnee-on-Delaware’s Shawnee Mountain kicks off this year’s celebrations on July 3, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with its Independence Day fireworks and festivities, featuring a DJ, stilt walk performer, magic show and loads of food and craft vendors. Cost is $10 per carload and all proceeds benefit the Shawnee Volunteer Fire Company. Rain date: July 7. Info: (570) 421-7231, www.shawneemt.com. Also on July 3: fireworks in downtown Honesdale. The American Freedom Festival in East Stroudsburg’s Dansbury Park offers family friendly fun from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on July 4. Bring your own picnic lunch or try out dishes presented by the many food vendors. With an amusement park featuring carnival rides, boardwalk-style games, clowns, magicians and face painters, the Freedom Festival is a huge hit with children. Artisans, merchants, exhibits and demonstrations make the event equally fun for adults. A fireworks finale brings the day to fitting close. Info: (570) 421-8300, www.eastburgalliance.com. In lovely Hawley, the dazzling Fireworks Display Over Lake Wallenpaupack is accompanied by a patriotic music radio broadcast (FM 105.3). Taking place on the 4th next to the Wallenpaupack Area High School, the fireworks begin at approximately 9:15 p.m. Bleachers for spectators open at 7 p.m. Boaters can take in the extravaganza right on the lake. Wallenpaupack Scenic Boat Tour (570) 226-3293, www.wallenpaupackboattour.com) offers a special 4th of July cruise that puts you in the perfect spot for viewing the fireworks. Or you can rent a boat from Rubber Duckie Boat Rentals, located in the Lakeside Country Plaza in Tafton, which offers a large selection of boats. For more information: (570) 226-3930, www.rubberduckieboatrentals.com. In the northern part of the region, Scranton’s famous fireworks show begins after dusk. The best seat for watching the show, which
ThisWeek.net 17 takes place downtown on Courthouse Square, may be Carl Von Luger’s outdoor tables where you can also enjoy dinner or drinks. Throughout the region, parades commemorate America’s birthday. Pleasant Mount’s parade begins at 10 a.m. on July 4. Downtown Hawley’s Independence Day parade kicks off at noon. For a special celebration at a Pocono Mountain architectural gem, take a tour of Milford’s Grey Towers National Historic Site for free on July 4. For families whose Independence Day festivities cannot be contained in one day, the Pocono Environmental Education Center offers its Celebration with a Bang Family Getaway from July 3 through July 6 in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area’s Dingmans Ferry. Enjoy night hikes, nature presentations, swimming, canoeing, campfire fun and, of course, fireworks.

Glass Legacy Glass has played an important role in man’s development since the Stone Age, when naturally occurring obsidian was used to make tools. Archaeological evidence suggests that man first made glass in coastal north Syria, Mesopotamia or Ancient Egypt. Glass beads from the Indus Valley date back to 1730 BCE. The Pocono Mountains has its own rich glass history. Christian Dorflinger, creator of fine crystal and cut glass, who was educated at the Cristalleries de Saint Louis in France, founded his Honesdale factory in 1862. Glass Expert Ray LaTournous A new documentary, A Legacy of Glass, illuminates Honesdale’s rich glass history. Featuring Wayne County glass expert Ray LaTournous and his daughter Kathy, the film chronicles Mr. LaTournous’ seven decades as a glass artist and curator of the Dorflinger Glass Museum. The film premieres at 6:30 p.m. on July 6 in the Green Room of the Dorflinger Museum on Route 6 in White Mills. Cost is $10 or $25 to attend the premiere and receive a copy of the DVD. After the premiere, the DVD will be available at the Wayne County Historical Society Museum shop. For more information: (570) 253-5468, www.dorflinger.org.

32 This Week in the Poconos
Food, the Way Nature Intended There are plenty of reasons to frequent farms and farmers markets. Small, local farms produce healthier, more nutritious foods that are better for you, the environment and future generations. Factory farming perpetrates atrocities against animals and, often, creates products that raise your risk of disease. Strolling through aisles of beautiful produce and flowers is uplifting. Also: locally produced foods are, simply, more delicious. The Pocono Mountains are blessed with a number of small farms that feature produce, poultry and meats of incomparable quality. Since pretty much anything can be grown in this region, the range of vegetables, fruits and flowers is staggering. Northeastern Pennsylvania even boasts several outstanding wineries. Hereâ€™s where to go for some of the freshest foods on the planet, right here in the Poconos.

Hiking the Poconos Relocating is rarely easy, but when South Korean native Minjeong Gwon first moved to the Pocono Mountains region from Boston, she found a way to quickly connect with likeminded people. Minjeong joined the Pocono Outdoor Club (POC). POC sponsors regular hikes through the hundreds of miles of trails lacing the Poconos. Minjeong says fair weather outings draw 30 to 40 hikers. But even rainy days bring out 10 or more people. Regardless of weather, each two- to seven-hour trek travels through some of the most spectacular scenery on the East coast. “This area has a wealth of pretty, unspoiled nature,” says Minjeong, who attended veterinary school in Oklahoma. Minjeong points out that the Poconos are home to the healthiest population of black bears in the country. This is good news for humans. Healthy wildlife indicates a healthy environment.

The Grey Lady The Pocono Mountains are an earthy paradise, packed with the natural beauty of emerald hills and crystal blue lakes, rivers and streams. Naturalists are naturally drawn here. But, with architectural gems that include French chateauesque mansions, colonial estates, neo-Gothic wonders and Victorian showcases, those who appreciate manmade creations also have plenty of reasons to enjoy the Poconos. At Grey Towers National Historic Landmark in lovely Milford, natural and manmade beauty coalesce in an exquisite balance. The former home of Gifford Pinchot, first Chief of the U.S. Forest Service and Pennsylvania Governor for two terms, Grey Towers is the Poconosâ€™ version of Versailles. You can tour the mansion and grounds every day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Grey Towers sponsors special events throughout the season, including free environmental films. A Sense of Wonder, July 14 at 8 p.m., chronicles the story of Rachel Carson and her love and defense of the environment following World War II. John James Audubon: Drawn from Nature, emphasizes Audubonâ€™s creative genius and lasting legacy, and will be shown at 8 p.m. on August 18. For more information: (570) 296-9630, www.greytowers.org.
