So, this is NOT me and my husband in this picture but YES that is a champagne glass shaped whirlpool. My husband surprised me this past weekend with a romantic getaway to the Poconos. I have never been to the Poconos, never even though about going there but we spent two nights at the Pocono Palace, an all-inclusive resort in an awesome room that featured a heart-shaped pool, the aforementioned jacuzzi, a sauna and a shower that doubled as a steam room.
We had some much needed couples time (sans small children) holding hands and gazing lovingly into each others eyes (no, really!). In between sitting in the jacuzzi, we ate at the restaurant on the grounds, forayed into the village surrounding the resort (full of cute shops), traveled to a nearby winery, Cherry Valley Vineyards where we learned how wine was made and sampled some really great vino. Back at the resort, late nights were filled with live music and very funny comedians.
We had a great time and I would encourage couples who want a mini-getaway to consider vacationing in the Poconos. I’m pretty sure we’ll be back.
