Weddings in the Poconos
The scenic Pocono Mountains next to the Lehigh Valley in Northeast Pennsylvania have long enjoyed a well earned reputation as the land of love. Pocono resorts are known for such novelties as heart-shaped and champagne glass tubs, but their attraction for romantic couples goes far beyond these unique features. Wedding resorts in the Poconos offer an amazing variety of activities and diversions for almost any interest and in all seasons that keep visitors and love birds returning year after year with their friends and families. Your wedding guests and family can take a break from the wedding preparations with a wide variety of entertainment and recreation.
In the spring, summer, and fall, active sports minded couples will discover that Pocono resorts are home to some of the finest golf courses in the Northeast. Rates are reasonable and the quality of play is very high. One could spend a week in the Poconos and never play the same course twice.
Horseback riding is a favorite at Pocono resorts and is readily available at a number of nearby stables. Trails range from simple to more challenging for the experienced rider. For the beginner, the stables provide excellent instruction. Taking in the natural beauty of the Poconos on horseback is a memorable and unique experience.
More active couples may prefer hiking along the many trails including the one and only Appalachian Trail which displays some its most beautiful vistas while passing through the Delaware Water Gap. Hikers can look down boaters enjoying the waters of the silvery Delaware River as it snakes through the Gap while they picnic along the side of the gorge. Boaters love to canoe or raft all along the river throughout the National Recreation Area where they may catch a glimpse of American Bald Eagles and other wildlife.
Besides the Delaware River for water related activities, several Pocono water parks invite couples and families to beat the summer heat by their wave pools and thrill rides. Families with children greatly appreciate the opportunity to relax and have some summer fun. Pocono resorts even offer indoor water parks so families can take advantage of the parks year round. In the Poconos, you can be looking at a pristine snow covered landscape outside as you zoom down a water slide in your bathing suit inside. Couples planning a Pocono Wedding may just want to relax and take advantage of a spa, or simply stretch out by a pool.
Shopping is conveniently located nearby for any last minute or forgotten items, and for those for whom shopping is a welcomed diversion. While out and about visitors will find a range of local restaurants to satisfy any taste and budget. Pocono Wedding Resorts hire the finest experienced chefs to prepare some of the most delicious foods that will ever cross your palate.
Couples who choose the intimacy and romance of a winter wedding will find skiing, snow-boarding, tubing, and even dog sledding readily available. Spend the day shooshing down the slopes and the evening snuggled up by a cozy fireplace. Pocono wedding resorts have a lot to offer in every season.
