ABOUT POCONO TALK
Pocono Talk was created in October 2007 by Andrea and Eric Kimes to provide information and insight about the Pocono Mountains.
Often referred to as “The Poconos” the Pocono Mountains are a beautiful place to both live and visit. Eric lived in the Poconos since he was a young child and Andrea moved to the area here in 2003. We both love the Pocono area and enjoy everything it has to offer. It is a great place to live, work, and vacation – from Casinos to Skiing to Resorts to Golf the Poconos has something for everyone.
We live and work in the Poconos and own and run our own website design company, WebLeaps. Whenever we get the chance we try to take advantage of the numerous activities the area has to offer to visit and see new things. Having 4 children the Poconos has many great family activities that we have experienced that provide us with information that we then share here.
Through our experiences, I hope we are able to provide you with some useful information whether you live here, visit on vacation, or are considering moving to the area.
