How to Plan a Romantic Getaway to the Poconos


Romance in a marriage is essential for a long lasting relationship. The Pocono Mountains, located in Eastern Pennsylvania, are known for their romantic destinations. Beauty is bountiful there, and many resorts have begun catering to couples, whether on their honeymoon or just looking for a romantic getaway. There are many things to see and do in the Poconos, including shopping, horseback riding, white water rafting, skiing in the winter and hiking up beautiful trails to see the sights.

  • Choose a weekend, or week, for your getaway. Consider how you will be traveling there. Will you be driving? If so, plan enough time for travel and still keep enough time at your destination to enjoy it. For instance, if it will take you a whole day to drive there and you only have three days off, you will only get to spend one day in the Poconos.

  • Decide on a hotel or resort to stay at. The Pocono region is quite large, so choose the location of your hotel according to the sights you want to see, or activities you want to pursue. Look online for photographs of the hotels and resorts. Some may offer Romance packages as well. Choose one that suits you and your partner. Consider not only location and offerings, but price as well. Reserve your room beforehand so you are certain to have a place to sleep once you get there.

  • Plan the itinerary you may want to follow. Do you want to take a nice horseback ride through the beautiful trails? Or, do you want to hike up and see the magnificent Bushkill falls? Don't forget to plan a day trip to Jim Thorpe, an old, eccentric town full of stories and sights.

  • Pack some romantic items to make the trip special. Candles, rose petals, candy and massage oil are all good ideas.

  • Plan a surprise for your partner. This is a great time for give her that special gift, or take her somewhere spectacular. If you can, bring a video camera to capture any special moments.
