Transportation

The closest major airport to the Pocono Mountains is Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVI), which is located about 58 miles from the area. We suggest that you get a rental car at the airport since most of the attractions are spread out in this mountainous destination. It is also recommended since there is not a lot of public transportation in the Pocono Mountains. There are a few small taxi services, but they are generally only in large cities like Scranton, Stroudsburg and Wilkes-Barre.
