A romantic Poconos getaway might be just what the love Doctor ordered let me tell you why. On the east coast of the US, a romantic Poconos getaway is a great way of celebrating a special anniversary or just reconnecting with the love of your life in a breathtaking setting. The Poconos covers 2400 beautiful square miles in Pennsylvia and is a resort that is popular with winter sport enthusiasts.
It also has a reputation for being something of a couples’ destination with a number of the big resorts specifically attracting the attention of couples. With some heart shaped facilities and all inclusive deals, Pocono Palace and Cove Haven are just two of the resorts which advertise their accommodation as being a places for romance and emphasize a more intimate setting for their visitors.
If resort life is not quite what you are looking for on your romantic Poconos getaway, another accommodation option is to go bed and breakfast. The facilities you get on this option will vary from one establishment to another, as will the amount of other guests. Some bed and breakfast homes will cater for only one or two couples whereas other larger establishments will have more rooms and will allow a number of different types of bookings, including families. Some of these may not allow smoking, some may allow pets, and some may not have en suite bathroom facilities – so you need to make sure what the bed and breakfast accommodation you are interested in offers before making a reservation.
You could also enquire about which meals are included as part of the price and whether additional meals are available if you require them – dinner may not be included or available for example, which means you need to know if there are restaurants nearby.
Having sorted out your accommodation, what can you do on your romantic Poconos Getaway? Although there are many types of outdoor activities to take part in, the most romantic “must see” are the eight waterfalls making up the Bushkill Falls (otherwise known as the “Niagara of Pennsylvania”).
Around the falls are a number of other attractions such as paddle boating. Away from the wonders of nature and the add-on tourist attractions of the area, another popular way of spending time in the Poconos is at the Pocono Raceway which makes the region a favorite with NASCAR fans. Winter in the Poconos brings out the snow lovers with skiing being the top attraction at this time of year. Sipping hot chocolate and snuggling with your partner beside the hotel’s log fire could be the perfect end to a romantic day on the slopes.
Although temperatures in the summer can make it up to the 90s, the winter gets cold with temperatures dropping down to the 50s, so make sure you pack enough warm clothing if you are planning your romantic Poconos getaway between November and February!
Pennsylvania’s beautiful Poconos offers a great romantic vacation – with quiet bed and breakfast accommodation and unforgettable waterfalls – this is a great place to spend either an anniversary, honeymoon …or even the ideal place to propose to the love of your life!
