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! I ended up getting some homemade cookies from Central Market in Lancaster.
Hershey was so much fun! It was nice to be a kid again (without the kid lol) and get on roller coasters, enjoy the park lemonade and eat fries. 😛
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!The 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.It 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.And so was the coffee. 😉After breakfast, we headed to Bushkill Falls (about 30-40mins away) to hike!They had three different trails you could follow.
We chose the “blue trail” which takes on average 1.5hrs, but we finished it in under an hour.After, 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. An employee recommended the Frogtown Chophouse; SO, SO GOOD. If you are ever in the Pocono area, check it out.The 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. 😉
