There’s no friendship quite like the ones developed between men who have walked the same path with you over the years, and sometimes, in between the insults and pranks, you find yourself realizing how lucky you are to have these men standing by your side. Big events in life can cause your thoughts to wander in this direction, and if you have something coming up in your life that makes you think a guys’ getaway would be the perfect way of showing your gratitude, a trip to the Poconos and a stay in one of our Pocono Mountain Rentals vacation escapes can be just the gift they deserve. This guide will give you some ideas on how to have fun with the men who are sometimes more like brothers than your own brother!
If you have ever watched a buddy movie, the first stop is always for cigars, so why not follow suit with a visit to the Ok Cigar Co, easily found in downtown Jim Thorpe; the hanging sign features an oversized cigar! Inside you will discover a large selection of cigars from all over the world as well as all the accessories necessary for a late-night bull session with the guys!
Picture this: It’s late at night and you and your wingmen are lounging in the oh so comfortable sofas and chairs of your Pocono Mountain Rentals secret hideout. The television is on low, but it’s the conversation that is catching your attention as you sip on sodas munch on chips and other snack food picked up during your day’s adventures. Do you see something wrong with this story? Perhaps you are missing the perfect glass of whisky, carefully cradled in the hands of each of your friends? The Holy Ghost Distillery in White Haven can remedy this situation, but you will have to get dressed and prepare to celebrate in an atmosphere that is casual and low key, something we don’t think any of you will mind all that much!
There is no wrong time for pizza and no better time to enjoy than during your getaway to the Poconos, and Papa Santos offers one of our favorite pies! The Papa Santos Special Pizza is piled high with all the goodies that make this dish mouthwateringly delicious; pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, and mushrooms combine together to make the perfect recipe! Open for dining in or carrying out, most visitors who try it once end up becoming regular customers!
A little healthy competition adds to the excitement of a guys’ getaway and Paintball Asylum offers a day’s worth of adventures the men will love! Featuring eight different fields with names like Boomerang, the Asylum, and Dead Man’s Alley, you and your friends can join in the fun with your own equipment for only $19.99 or rent everything you need from a variety of different packages topping out at $39.99 per person! Paint asylum also offers private group packages for groups of 15 or more, but if your group is under 15, they offer a referee for an additional $100 charge! Rent smoke grenades and paint grenades and all the extra protection you may need (paint balls really do sting) and spend a few hours of your getaway getting out your aggressions!
Growing older is an unfortunate part of life, but just because you are growing older it does not mean you have to grow up and a visit to the S&S Speedways is the perfect way to stay young forever! Keep the competition going with a few hours of fun on this indoor track as you bring back the fun of youth, quite possibly with some of the very people; friendships like yours can last forever! Only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the pandemic, safety measures are being taken, including temperature checks and safety stations!
Not every night has to be spent exploring the wonders of the Poconos; some of the best nights can take place in the comfort of your Pocono Mountain Rentals country cabin, just hanging out with the guys! Toss your favorite meats on the grills outside (the Butcher Shop in Blakeslee has some of the best cuts of beef in town, but any of our local grocery stores offer a great supply as well), pour some of that whiskey you bought at the Holy Ghost Distillery, and gather round the table for a night of barbecue and your favorite game of chance! If poker isn’t on the agenda, watching the big game on the big screen is always a popular way to fill the hours and our state-of-the-art televisions will make you feel you are right there on the court, on the field, or behind the dugout getting a bird’s eye view of your favorite sport!
The age-old question, “What do you want to do?” can be answered in a variety of ways, none of which will be the wrong answer when you and your friends choose to stay in one of our Pocono Mountain Rentals vacation escapes. Reserve yours today!
