Vacation in the Poconos!

Happy Friday friends!

Last week, my husband and I took our mini “honeymoon” road trip vacation in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. I recently got a new position at work and had training that cut into our honeymoon time, but it was worth it. 🙂

We dropped Samantha off at my parents in New York (my mom was on spring break) and headed down to Allentown first to spend the night.

We didn’t want to have a longer drive to Hershey Park in the morning. We had a quick breakfast, then headed to the park!

We drove through Amish Country and found a donut place called “Sugar on Top,” where they had a design your own donut. Pat was pretty excited! 18010430_10102949912149270_5272716446962601306_nI ended up getting some homemade cookies from Central Market in Lancaster.

After Hershey, we headed right across the park to Giant Center to watch the Providence Bruins play against the Hershey Bears. Those fans were so energetic, it was a total blast!18033319_10102949911475620_3475233617955233380_nThe game finished pretty late, so I grabbed coffee (opened til 11pm!) and we drove to the Poconos to spend a couple days at Crescent Lodge and Inn.18033900_10102949900622370_2727808772642970847_nIt was different to spend Easter just the two of us, but we did enjoy some good food. The breakfast at the lodge was absolutely delicious.17917315_10102947221735880_3844322043440203303_oAnd so was the coffee. 😉17992184_10102949911281010_5232480526820967630_nAfter breakfast, we headed to Bushkill Falls (about 30-40mins away) to hike!18033428_10102949900762090_7953642920685064237_nThey had three different trails you could follow.
18010037_10102947476036260_4089858301926821891_nWe chose the “blue trail” which takes on average 1.5hrs, but we finished it in under an hour.17952679_10102949900667280_1746079005457548266_nAfter, we had lunch, then headed to the lodge to shower and get ready for Mount Airy Casino. We played at the slots for a bit then started to get hungry. 17904395_10102949900078460_8267856583804618332_nAn employee recommended the Frogtown Chophouse; SO, SO GOOD. If you are ever in the Pocono area, check it out.17952704_10102949899838940_3441297957075878376_nThe last morning we were pretty tired, so we packed up, had breakfast and played around in the casino one more time before hitting the road.

I love long trips in a car, just seems like such an adventure to travel different spots or find things on the fly. I would go back to the Crescent Lodge again to spend another couple of relaxing days with the hubs!

They also had an outdoor area, but it was raining most of the time (except for when we went hiking, phew) so we couldn’t do much.

Maybe next time. 😉

  1. I love taking day trips to Hershey. One of my favorite towns. I like to go there occasionally to see musicals at the Hershey Theatre. They get some of the same touring productions that come to Philadelphia or Pittsburgh but the parking is free and it is easy to get to and sometimes cheaper.
