Dinner and a movie is always a safe bet for date night, but what about something out of the ordinary? Say goodbye to your routine on your next romantic rendezvous. 

Whether catching a breathtaking sunset by air or reigniting your romance under earth, we’ve got unique ways for couples to appreciate one another. Read on for five romantic activities to experience with the love of your life in the Poconos.



1. Sunset Air Tour

If you’ve never been in a plane, now’s your chance. Moyer Aviation provides year-round air tours of the Poconos; a sight you’ve got to see. Take an aerial ride with your honey and be captivated by the region’s beauty in a whole new perspective. Choose from mapped out trips or customize your own. Ride off into the sunset together, and maybe even pop the question to commemorate this romantic experience together.  


2. Spa Getaway

You can never go wrong with a day at the spa, especially at an award-winning location. The Lodge at Woodloch is a world-class destination spa that offers luxurious experiences for couples. At an adults-only paradise, you and your sweetheart will relax among scenic beauty and serenity. Pick from seasonal treatments, couples’ massages or retreat packages. Book an overnight stay and enjoy the finest arrangements on your getaway.


3. Winery Visit

Spend some time sipping delicious vintages together or take a stroll through the vineyard. Mountain View Vineyard Winery is located just outside of Stroudsburg and offers wine tastings as well as special wine pairing events and dinners throughout the year. It's a three-in-one stop along the Pocono Beverage Trail, with a brewery and distillery on property as well. 


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. Each class showcases a different dish and the techniques to take with you. Have some fun as one while learning culinary tricks during these hands-on demonstrations. 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.
