Breweries & Wineries
Designate a driver or ride share service and blaze a trail to some of the area’s finest breweries and wineries. There are many of them in the Pocono Mountains region, serving handcrafted beers and wines made right on the premises. Many have tasting rooms, and experts who will help you with proper food pairings to maximize taste. Mask wearing is requested except for when tasting.
F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts
You won’t run out of venues for live events! The F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts plays hosts to musical acts like Marina McBride, Art Garfunkel, and other live performances. The historic theater opened in 1938 and showed movies on its single screen. It had several incarnations over the years and underwent extensive reconstruction and renovation to get to the venue you’ll enjoy on your trip.
Double Cut Charcoal Grill & Liquor Bar
If you’re looking for a tasty meal any day of your vacation or need to fill up before heading out to see a show or performance, Double Cut Charcoal Grill & Liquor Bar is here to satisfy you. Open for dinner, Double Cut offers a wide variety of seafood, vegetarian, and of course steaks, along with prime rib, chicken, and more.

Much like taking a tour of the area’s best wineries and breweries, a bar or pub crawl is a great way to find hot spots that might be a bit off the beaten path. Ask some locals for advice on those establishments before you head out for a night of dinner, drinks, dancing, and whatever else you may find. Be safe and appoint a designated driver or book a car service to get you from place to place and back to your accommodations.
