We had attended a wedding there July 18. It was the worst event we have ever been to. There were 150 people. they made us wait over 45 minutes to go into the cocktail party. then they had one 6 foot table for the cheese and crackers for 150 guests! it was a mad house and hot as heck. They had no clean up people or an y garbage cans, the server said she was busy passing snacks and they were short staffed. we all couldn't wait to go upstairs to the reception for air conditioning. we arrived upstairs. It was cool upon arrival but soared to 93 degrees on our phones. They had a total of 5 staff for 150 guest. they forgot to bring out the champagne for the toast so the wedding couple had to toast with water. They had stated their staff had quit. The food was awful. Very very unorganized affair. It was very sad to see the wedding couple so upset with their special day that Memory town ruined for lack of professionalism and planning. You would think for a catering facility they would know how to conduct a wedding for that amount of guests. if they could not then they needed to decline the event. Shame on them.
I do understand things happen as no one is perfect. but this was a perfect storm. Maybe others will have better luck as everyone makes mistakes.

Knob road on top of Pocono Mountain in PA. AAA said there was a great overlook at the end of this road. It would have been great if the small trees and tall weeds would have been cut down. You can not see more than 100 feet.

Beautiful area of the Country with lots to do and see. I was there for a CMC civilian and military combine at a ski resort. Absolute blast. There was lots of places to stay and malls nearby with lots of shopping to be done. Roads are really nice and vista views on the side roads winding into the hillsides

We had a great day at Poconos for snowtubing. The sky was blue, not too cold at all and ... NO SNOW! It was in late December 14 . We had kids with us, they had fun sliding down the tubes filled with artificial snow and that´s what it counts.
My only negative comment is that the toilette were ridiculous. They were the chemical ones, super duper dirty. Imagine when you have to go in with a kid in his snow clothes and you have to be super careful not to touch anything. It was disgusting and disappointing, specially for being in the US! Oh my! Other than that, it was a great day!

We have driven through the Pocono Mountains on several occasions, and never been disappointed. Our last trip was to Jim Thorpe en route to a day of tubing and snow boarding. I would especially recommend taking a drive and staying overnight in the fall when the leaves are changing colors.
