The grandeur of the Canadian Rockies, the glamour of Paris, the jaw-dropping beauty of Tahiti… sensational destinations exist all around the world. While those locations can make for a wonderful getaway, they aren’t solely dedicated to romance. That takes a special place – welcome to your Poconos honeymoon!
Pulling together the best activities on land and water such as golfing, sailing and horseback riding with gourmet dining, the finest resorts and luxury accommodations that fit any budget, the Pocono Mountains have it all with an added bonus: you can easily find a honeymoon package where everything’s included!
The Pocono Mountains are located in the northeastern region of the state of Pennsylvania. At about an hour and a half drive from New York City, the region is part of the Allegheny Plateau, much like the neighboring Catskills, and has long been the state’s premier vacation destination. The scenery is quite beautiful and though the mountains may not be the highest, they’re perfect for skiing, sledding, hiking, camping, swimming and numerous outdoor adventures throughout the seasons. In fact, one of the Pocono Mountain’s best features is the exquisite kaleidoscopic colors of the leaves changing in autumn.
In the past, a Poconos honeymoon may have had a reputation for being less than sophisticated. But all that has shifted in recent years as the area has made a contemporary move from chintzy to chic. If you want a wild experience in a giant champagne glass whirlpool bath for two, that option is certainly available. However, you’ll also find picturesque resorts, excellent cuisine and activities to rival the finest of pampering anywhere.
Due to its close proximity to major metro areas, a Poconos honeymoon is ideal for any length of time from a quick weekend to a full two weeks. Ignite that romantic spark by celebrating each other with beautiful scenery, casinos, kayaking, white water rafting and more in a destination that’s as committed to your love as you are.
