The nearest airports, about 45 minutes away, are Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton (ABE) and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AVP). They are regional airports and due to their small size, airfare into them is usually slightly more expensive than the larger international airports. A cab can be taken from ABE to Stroudsburg for about $70, but it may be cheaper to rent a car.
The larger airports nearest to us are Philadelphia (PHL) and Newark (EWR). We recommend renting a car from these locations, as they are about an hour and a half away.
