Since conditions were not always safe for this practice, people began to race on horse tracks instead. This led to modern raceways specifically designed for racing cars.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span>Today, you can enjoy high-speed car races as they unfold before your eyes. The&nbsp;</span><span>Pocono Raceway events</span><span>coming up will provide a spectacle you don&rsquo;t want to miss!&nbsp;</span></p> <p><a class="btn" href="https://mountaintoplodge.com/poconos-vacation-guide/"><span>Get Your Free Poconos Travel Guide</span></a></p> <h2><a href="https://www.poconoraceway.com/"><span>The Pocono Raceway</span></a></h2> <p><span><a href="https://mountaintoplodge.com/poconos-vacation-guide/"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-2932" src="https://mountaintoplodge.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/ml-vg-3-300x300.png" alt="race flag with text " width="300" height="300" /></a>The Pocono Raceway, also known as the &ldquo;Tricky Triangle,&rdquo; was first constructed in 1968. Over the years, it has come to enjoy a reputation as a unique track. It is one of the few NASCAR courses not owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc. or the National Speedway Corporation.</span></p> <h3><span>The Track</span></h3> <p><span>The Pocono Raceway has the racetrack plus three separate infield sections that connect to the main track, allowing for more lap options during non-race weekends. Each turn on the main track is modeled after turns on other tracks throughout the U.S., making these turns difficult since they are all different from each other. The stretches between the turns also differ in length, which compounds the challenge.</span></p> <h3><span>Other Events</span></h3> <p><span>In addition to the races it hosts from the IndyCar Series and NASCAR, the Pocono Raceway is home to other kinds of entertainment.</span><span><br /></span><span><br /></span><span>Various sports car companies enjoy the use of this track, like&nbsp;</span><a href="https://www.signaturecarcollection.com/"><span>Signature Car Collection</span></a><span>&nbsp;from whom you can rent a sports car.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span>You have a choice of riding along as a professional commandeers the car for a heart-racing experience similar to the real thing, or you can&nbsp;</span><a href="https://mountaintoplodge.com/blog/pocono-raceway-driving-experience/"><span>take the wheel yourself</span></a><span>.

Conveniently located within the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.discovernepa.com/thing-to-do/the-marketplace-at-steamtown/">Marketplace at Steamtown</a>, this 20,000 square foot aquarium connects visitors to wildlife that they may not see every day.</p> <p>There are sharks and stingrays, giant South American catfish and piranha. You can enter the brilliant, colorful world of a tropical reef teeming with fish both big and small. Get up close and personal with some sea life at the interactive touch tank, where guests are welcomed to reach in and touch starfish, horseshoe crabs and sea urchins. The aquarium staff also conducts educational programs and interactive feedings throughout the day.</p> <p>When your undersea adventure is complete, continue on to the equally stunning Reptile Den. Here you will be immersed in the habitats of frogs, turtles and snakes. You&rsquo;ll see lizards and crocodiles and though its not a reptile, you may even see a giant tarantula.</p> <p>The aquarium also provides a separate room for birthday parties, events and school or camp outings. And with its location in downtown Scranton, it&rsquo;s convenient to all of NEPA. Stop by the marketplace, grab a bite and shop local at the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.discovernepa.com/thing-to-do/scranton-public-market/">Scranton Public Market</a>&nbsp;and end the day with a visit to your fishy friends at the aquarium.</p> <p>The Electric City Aquarium and Reptile Den is one of the region&rsquo;s only fully immersive wildlife attractions. Every visit inspires young and old minds alike and reveals something new to the naturally curious. Who knows?
