Hotel at a Glance: Best Western Pioneer

Carbondale’s Main Street is a picture of small-town America. Near an old-fashioned courthouse, restaurants, and shops, you’ll find the Best Western Pioneer. The hotel offers several welcoming amenities, including complimentary breakfast, WiFi, and a restaurant.

  • Start the day right with a complimentary breakfast that includes hot waffles, fruit, and cereal.
  • Ambers Bar & Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can enjoy omelets and burgers or simply grab a drink at the bar.
  • King suites have separate sitting areas and two TVs.
  • Soak up local history with a visit to the Carbondale City Hall and Courthouse and the Carbondale Historical Society, located across the street from the hotel. The staff can direct you to the site of America’s first deep-underground anthracite mine and the city’s mysterious 1974 UFO sighting.

Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains: Downhill Skiing and Quaint, Historical Towns

The Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania accounts for some 2,400 square miles of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and forests. The area has been a popular vacation destination ever since Pennsylvania Quakers opened a hotel here on the Delaware River in 1829. Today, the Poconos draw nearly 24 million annual visitors, thanks to year-round recreational opportunities and spectacular natural scenery.

In winter, locals often make weekend trips from Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, and DC for one reason: skiing. One ski spot that’s particularly popular is Camelback Mountain Resort, which sits atop one of the region’s tallest mountains at 2,133 feet and boasts 160 acres of skiable terrain. For an extended run, head to the Nile Mile, which drops 800 feet vertically over the course of a mile-long descent. The resort is also amply lit for night skiing, and is the only place in the Poconos with a halfpipe.  

There are diversions outside of the slopes, too. A handful of quaint, little towns full of antique shops and galleries nestle in the mountains. You’ll find boutique wine galleries and historical mansions tucked away on country roads, including the late 19th-century Asa Packer Mansion, which is open for tours, in the borough of Jim Thorpe.

Myself , husband and daughter went here back in 2016 and we had a time of our life. The breakfast was delicious. The staff are so nice and sweet. We are black and when we got there thought it was a place we shouldn't be. But after seeing it was all sorts of families there we were happy and delighted that all races of people were there and everyone all so nice. This is most diversity here.
