4. Cooking Classes
Interested in learning something together? Give the cooking class in The Boiler Room at the Hawley Silk Mill a go. These interactive classes are offered the second Sunday of the month.

Most of the classes pair adult beverages with the menu, too.
5. Hike and Picnic
Opt outside to enjoy each other’s company during a hike and picnic. Explore the paths at Pocono Mountains’ parks and pack a lunch to have along the way. Parks like Hickory Run State Park feature tumbling waterfalls along their hiking trails. After walking the trails, set up for a nice picnic lunch. Many parks also have picnic areas, or you can stop and make your own spot in a pretty part in the park.
