The Poconos is a vast area, and thankfully, there are a number of visitor centers that can help you on your way and offer some advice about local attractions and exhibits.
Several are operated by the State of Pennsylvania, a few others are funded by local tourism bureaus and chambers of commerce. Still some others are put up by a local business (sometimes a real estate company).
Most will not offer advice about which hotel or motel to stay in, they can only refer you to a member.
