It was a surprise when hubby told me that he wants to do a weekend getaway. I was exhausted these past few weeks and I don't feel like going on a long drive. And since we have always been driving south on most getaways, this time I suggested going north. The Poconos Mountains sounds a good idea. It is close, an hour and a half drive and we never been there. So, we grabbed the water cooler, the van and the in-laws and off we went.
The Poconos Mountain is a popular (and cheap) options for family vacations. It is great to visit on both extremes of the season. On winter, it is a popular ski destination. On the summer, it is known for hiking and white water rafting. We are in a shoulder season (too cold for the pool, too warm to ski) so I am not sure what other options we could do for the weekend. It turns out that its a good thing not to do much on a weekend. My in-laws (both retired) made sure we ate good and got enough sleep. I told hubby that we should do this more often.
I know. I wish I could write something about doing cool things but rest and sleep seem to be a luxury for us nowadays. Next post would be more photos of what I would term as a "hidden treasure" on the Poconos. I have never heard of this place before but I would love to come back and stay at least overnight on this inn that looks like you are in a time warp. A little hint - it reminds me of The Great Gatsby. Enough said.
