Pocono Summit Profile


Overview

Pocono Summit is a very small town located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 4,321 people and just one neighborhood, Pocono Summit is the 338th largest community in Pennsylvania.

Occupations and Workforce

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Pocono Summit is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Pocono Summit’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Pocono Summit has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Pocono Summit has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Pocono Summit than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Pocono Summit may be for you.

One downside of living in Pocono Summit, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.17 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

Despite being a small town, Pocono Summit has a lot of people using the bus to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the bus are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.
