This historic train takes you on a romantic journey through the stunning Lehigh Gorge, allowing you to snuggle up and enjoy the scenery without worrying about driving.

Waterfall Exploration

The Poconos boast numerous stunning waterfalls, perfect for romantic hikes and picnics. Situated in Lehman Township, Bushkill Falls has earned the moniker “Niagara of Pennsylvania” due to its impressive series of eight cascading waterfalls.

Outdoor Adventures for Two

For active couples, the Poconos offer a wealth of outdoor activities to enjoy together.
