My husband and I spent our 26th wedding anniversary at the Poconos (24-28 Sept 08) and had a WONDERFUL TIME. We ate and ate and ate way too much. Relaxed, cuddled, and played some couples games. We won the 8 ball pool tournament and didn't do so well with the "guess who" pictures of celebrties and sports figures. My brain could not work that fast :(

Met a very nice couple from Boston, MA that has 6 kids. Oh my gosh, 6 kids, I cannot even guess how busy her house is on a daily basis.

I know what comes to everyone's mind first when you say going to the Poconos, because it is the place for LOVE, but there are a lot of other things to do like,

Wine tasting tours
White water rafting
Stock car riding / racing
Outlet store shopping
Water skiing
Row boating
Paddle boating

We also had a couples massage. THIS IS A MUST for anyone. My husband was a little hesitant, but he even said it was really relaxing. Afterwards we both wanted to take a nap. There was a fireplace, so we had a fire and relaxed one evening.

Coming from someone who has been going to the Poconos with her hubby for several years. it is a VERY NICE place for couples who want alone time and some relaxing fun where you become the kids.

    It sounds so awesome!! I desperately want to plan a trip w/my husband. We need to celebrate him being NED from last ct scan and just have couple time @ from our 3 kids! I am up for the message and wine tasting...and quiet night in front of the fireplace. Thanks for sharing!

    Glad you had a great time
    My honeymoon was in the Poconos at a resort called Cove Haven, 34 years ago this past August .We loved it then and I'm sure it's better than ever. I'd love to go back again for a weekend away. Am glad you had an awesome time and a chance to relax. Happy 26th anniversary ! and thanks for bringing back those memories.
    God Bless,
