Encompassing nearly 2,500 miles of tree-filled hills, white-crested rivers, and historic towns, the Pocono Mountains in northeast Pennsylvania are an East Coast getaway to an easy encounter with the great outdoors. Often known as a romantic winter destination for its snowy hills and bevy of nearby skiing trails, it's also a vibrant spring and summer retreat thanks to lush valleys and rushing brooks that invite everything from rafting to freshwater fishing. Year-round festivals and art exhibitions in tucked-away towns lend themselves to casual entertainment courtesy of kind-hearted communities eager to share with you their beautiful backyard.
Surrounded by a long list of high-energy excursions that include everything from snowmobiling in the winter to biking and paddle-boating in the summer, the all-inclusive, couples-only Paradise Stream Resort boasts individually appointed rooms that are each named for the area's most well-known attractions. Some rooms, like the Champagne Tower Suite, the Garden of Eden Apple Suite, and Diana's Oasis, boast log-burning fireplaces, private whirlpool tubs, king-sized beds, and personal refrigerators. Spend the morning by treating yourself to an in-room spa treatment (based on availabilty) or playing a round of tennis, and then have a romantic afternoon drifting along the water in a rowboat. Later, choose a nearby hiking trail in the Pocono Mountains, and return to the resort for a swim in the pool and a drink at the poolside bar.
Once you're done swooning over the hotel, you'll fall head over heels when you step outside to the breathtaking beauty of the Poconos valley. Go on a horseback ride with Mountain Creek Stables or get your heart pumping (even more) with a paddle adventure through beginner-to-expert rapids with Pocono Whitewater. Take a romantic stroll along a hiking trail inside Beltzville State Park or feel the mist on your face from Bushkill Falls. Feeling like you want to get lucky? Aim for the jackpot at Mount Airy Casino.
