Poconos during thanksgiving

Is it a bad idea of visit Poconos during Thanksgiving weekend? My parents, my husband and I plan to visit poconos. We will be driving from Baltimore. What are the possible places to see during this time of the year? We are interested in driving along scenic routes and sight seeing. I read about the Bushkill waterfalls. Will it be too cold?

As we would be with parents who are quite old, we would not be able to do outdoor activities and we are not too keen on thanksgiving dinner as we are Indian vegertarians. I would like to know what are all the places that we can cover.

Thanks in advance.

You are coming at one of the least scenic times. All the leaves will be off the trees, but it is too early for snow.

As for Bushkill Falls, be aware that the Falls will require some walking. The main falls is the most accesable, but require a 15 minute walk and climbing some steps Can your parents do this? Some of the other falls require a mile to two mile hike.

Temperature highs will proabably in the 40's or at most 50's.
