With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many couples are looking for that perfect destination to celebrate their love. The Poconos are an excellent choice, with a range of romantic adventures and activities that are sure to captivate your partner. As you map out your Valentine’s Day escape, consider these suggestions for creating amazing new memories in the Poconos this year.
A Romantic Ride Along the Rails
Step aboard vintage rail cars and take a step back in time, as you enjoy a romantic trip along the rails with the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. They offer 70-minute trips, with heated cars and some amazing views. You can also spend some time in the charming town of Jim Thorpe after your ride!
Horseback Ride in the Pocono Hills
If you’re looking for a unique adventure, saddle up for a horseback ride through the scenic Pocono Mountains, where breathtaking views and trails await. Share a romantic journey as you and your partner explore the region’s natural beauty on horseback, guided by experienced wranglers who will ensure a safe and memorable time. Mountain Creek Stables is a great choice, and offers both public and private trail rides. If you’re looking for an even more intimate experience, contact Daisy Field Farm. They offer rides by appointment only, and also offer a chance to visit with the other farm animals.
Mountain Elegance: A Romantic Dinner and Night Out
No romantic getaway would be complete without a memorable dining experience. There is no shortage of Pocono dining options for you, with amazing cuisine and intimate settings that make for the perfect evening. Some of our favorites are Louie’s Prime, Macaluso’s, Momento Pizzeria & Restaurant, Stroudsmoor Country Inn, The Water’s Edge, and the Delmonico Room at the Hotel Fauchere. And after dinner, enjoy an Evening of Love Songs at the FM Kirby Center on February 14th. Featuring Tim Husty and Erin Malloy, the show starts at 7:30 pm, so it would make the perfect destination after a romantic dinner. The French Manor Inn & Spa is always an excellent choice. They have a sophisticated menu, and you can’t beat a relaxing couple’s massage to melt away that stress! Or for even more Spa Facilities, click HERE.
