Hawley, Pennsylvania: Small Town on a Lake amid the Poconos
Dotted with lakes, ribboned by rivers, and surrounded by the Pocono Mountains, Hawley is a year-round destination for outdoorsy activities. The tiny town, set the northeastern corner of Pennsylvania, is right on the shores of 13-mile-long Lake Wallenpaupack, with its 52 miles of shoreline. It's popular with boaters, trout fishing enthusiasts, and sunbathers in warmer months. You'll also be close to The Delaware River Highlands, a three-state network of hiking and biking trails with its own network of waterfalls.
It's also worth it to stop at the Hawley Silk Mill. This historic silk mill has been renovated into a coffee house and boutique shopping area, complete with a gym that offers spinning and yoga classes.
