Canadensis is the "heart" of the Poconos; it is home to a number of bed & breakfasts. The area is more for the outdoor enthusiasts, mostly during the summer. In the summer Canadensis serves as a home to many sleepaway campers from the tri-state area at Camp Canadensis.[2] There are no actual tourism sites within Canadensis. Canadensis has a few restaurants and small businesses which function to serve the local economy rather than attract tourists.
