A Trip to Cove Haven: The Perfect Christmas Gift

Perhaps they’re in for the surprise of a lifetime, in the form of an all-inclusive gift package to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, a trifecta of romance located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. Or, perhaps this is the year to open gifts a little early, where he or she unwraps an all-inclusive Christmastime escape to Cove Haven? Regardless of when you plan to visit our beloved couples destination, it’s a well-known fact that a wrapped trip to Cove Haven makes the perfect Christmas gift.

Santa-Endorsed Cove Haven Gift Cards

Instead of purchasing a dozen stale, last-minute gifts on Amazon, contemplate going “all in” on a Cove Haven gift card, good for two years after activation. Gift cards allow couples to plan a trip together, set during a preferred season. After all, coordinating time off is no walk in the park. The flexibility of a gift card ensures that couples (especially parents) have all their ducks in a row before embarking on a well-deserved couples-only getaway into the Pocono Mountains, the “honeymoon capital of the world.” Therefore, a Cove Haven gift card is the perfect Christmas gift.

All-Inclusive Packages: The Best Christmas Present Ever

Now, it’s altogether possible that your significant other would prefer a well-thought-out all-inclusive package set for a special occasion, such as an anniversary, birthday, holiday, or, dare we say, an engagement? All-inclusive packages vary in grandeur, ranging from blazing-hot discounts to the ultimate honeymoon extravaganza. Each all-inclusive stay includes two meals daily, nightly entertainment, unlimited on-site activities, and a tantalizing suite, such as the world-famous Champagne Tower Suite. However, packages add an extra layer of passion and romance in the form of rose petals, bubble baths, candles, chocolate-covered strawberries, cafe discounts, private dining, champagne, off-property horseback riding, and, well, you get the picture—no detail is overlooked.

The Perfect Christmas Vacation

The Pocono Mountains, chiefly Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, play host to real-life Hallmark Christmas moments. Reenact your favorite scenes while ice skating, snowshoeing, or hanging Christmas decorations in your dreamy suite. This year, give the gift of the perfect Christmas getaway to Cove Haven, where we “Warm-up for the Holidays.” A Christmas-themed vacation includes VIP shopping passes at The Crossings Premium Outlets (Kelly Kapoor would approve), customized holiday photo cards, cookie decorating, winter crafts, Christmas carol karaoke, and holiday-themed scavenger hunts. Oh, and we load up on hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts, candy canes, and peppermint mochas. Remember to book well in advance as the holiday is one of our most desirable booking windows. You can either call us directly at 800-432-9932 or click the Book Now button to get started on the perfect Christmas escape.


The 5 Best State Parks in the Poconos

This three-pack of romance is known to many as the “honeymoon capital of the world.” The all-inclusive experience includes two meals daily (breakfast and a gourmet dinner), nightly entertainment, a tantalizing accommodation, and a bevy of complimentary activities, such as paintball, ice skating, tanning, bicycling, and water tubing. Each romantic resort boasts a unique lineup of pursuits. Thus, as a bonus, couples can gain access to each resort through the Key Around Club. As you might expect, traveling from one resort to another leads to a bit of Pocono Mountain exploration, whether that’s lunch at a local restaurant, a stop at a craft brewery (or a backcountry vineyard), or a short jaunt through a Pocono state park.

The Top 5 Pocono Mountain State Parks

There are nearly a dozen state parks in the Pocono Mountains, a jaw-dropping, 2,400-square-mile stretch of landscape that touches three states. Its beauty is only outmatched by its proximity to New York City, Philadelphia, Scranton, and Allentown. Hidden in the rolling hills and densely-forested valleys are some of the country’s most remote state parks. So, whether you’re looking for a picnic spot, a mid-day hike, or a photographic overlook, you’ll quickly find a suitable destination amongst this list of Pocono Mountain state parks.

1. Promised Land State Park

They don’t call it the Promised Land for nothing. While this picturesque Pocono state park isn’t quite as heavenly as The Land of Milk and Honey, it remains an idyllic place to swim, kayak, hike, picnic, and leaf-peep. It’s a photographer’s dreamland, especially during autumn’s peak.

2. Tobyhanna State Park

Tobyhanna remains one of the most underrated natural wonders in Pennsylvania. It boasts an azure lake, deep-forested trails, a thriving black bear population, and an immeasurable amount of tranquility around every turn.

3. Big Pocono State Park

Big Pocono is home to the most enthralling valley overlooks in the region, as well as 8.5 miles of wilderness trails. The 827-foot-tall Camelback Mountain towers above the Pocono Mountains’ southern reach near the New Jersey border, offering sprawling vistas at various intervals.

4. Prompton State Park

Locals and travelers alike rarely visit Prompton State Park, primarily because it’s well north of Lake Wallenpaupack and U.S. Route 6. However, this finger lake is an aesthetic beauty that provides heart-throbbing colors during fall, lush greenery in midsummer, and picture-perfect snow-topped forestry in the heart of winter. Most visitors fish in Prompton Lake, “snap” photos of the waterfall, or play disc golf on the 18-hole course.

5. Hickory Run State Park

Hickory Run State Park is home to the world-famous Boulder Field, an 18-acre plot made up of nothing but massive rocks. It has been described as a “giant’s driveway.” Geologists speculate that the Boulder Field was created during the most recent ice age by a glacier that migrated from Canada and eventually paused, for good, in what’s now Hickory Run.

Romantic Weekend Getaways in Pennsylvania

Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is the most tantalizing couples-only destination near New York City and Philadelphia. Planning an adult vacation typically takes months of planning. However, at Cove Haven, we do all of the heavy lifting. Our all-inclusive packages include two meals daily, coordinator-led events, nightly entertainment, dozen of complimentary activities, and, of course, an overnight stay in a suite of choice—perhaps a world-famous Champagne Tower Suite? You’ll rarely want to leave your fantasy suite, as most come equipped with a log-burning fireplace, heated pool, dry sauna, celestial ceiling, and heart-shaped whirlpool bath. To start planning your next extended weekend getaway into the Pocono Mountains, please give us a call today at 800-432-9932.


Cove Haven: The Ultimate Poconos Babymoon Destination

Amidst all of the pre-birth excitement and chaos, it’s easy for soon-to-be parents to become deluged in anxiety, especially if it’s your first child. In hopes of encountering a “calm before the storm,” many couples embark on a well-deserved, stress-relieving babymoon, a late 20th-century construct that has become somewhat of a normality in the United States and Europe. And it’s hard to imagine a more relaxing, intimate, or revitalizing babymoon destination on the globe than Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the “honeymoon capital of the world.”

So, What Is a Babymoon?

There are dissenting opinions on the actual definition of a babymoon. However, most view it as a pre-birth getaway (not post-birth). English author Sheila Kitzinger coined the term in the 1990s, and it stuck. The idea behind its formation is rather simple: When babies are born, newfound parents’ lives change—drastically. Call it “one last hurrah,” if you like. But a true babymoon should be centered around her. Her feelings. Her desires. Her cravings. Her spirit. Once that little rugrat becomes a proper part of the family, it will grow increasingly difficult to get away. Furthermore, it’s critical that Mom feels calm, content, and prepared in the days leading up to that inevitable nerve-racking drive to the hospital.

Cove Haven: An Idyllic Babymoon Destination

So, what makes Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts such an invigorating babymoon destination? Well, this is the “Land of Love,” after all. Everything, from the gourmet cuisines to the heart-shaped Jacuzzis and the complimentary entertainment, is centered around romance. Romance is in our DNA. And, as the premier East Coast babymoon destination, we’re committed to fostering a playful, passionate, and uninhibited getaway that won’t soon be forgotten. Our CXOs (Chief eXcitement Officers) ensure that all on-site activities, such as guided hiking, ice skating, pedal boating, and croquet, are safe for all soon-to-be moms (and everyone else, for that matter).

However, the principal draw remains our newly-updated Champagne Tower Suites, equipped with a log-burning fireplace, dry sauna, celestial ceiling, heart-shaped pool, and seven-foot-tall glass whirlpool bath for two. The on-site spa, which does cost extra, specializes in prenatal wellness, including the “Mommy & Me” massage, aimed at relieving stress, fatigue, tension, and stiffness.

All-Inclusive Babymoon Packages

Make your trip into the sprawling, picturesque Pocono Mountains extra special by purchasing a hot deal, such as the three-day, two-night babymoon package, starting at just $399. The all-inclusive package includes unlimited fine dining, countless on-site activities, nightly entertainment, CXO-led events, and, of course, two nights in a suite of choice. We also boast a variety of gift packages would be quite the romantic gesture (*ahem*), such as chocolate truffles, rose petals, heart-shaped cheesecake, and private photography. Hopefully, we’ve effectively painted a picture as to why Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is considered the ultimate East Coast babymoon destination. To book a well-deserved getaway with your sweetheart, please give us a call today at 800-432-9932 (or click that handy “Book Now” button at the top of your screen).


5 Yummy Fall Cocktail Recipes

And, for many adults, it’s also a suitable time to unearth a bevy of delicious fall cocktail recipes. There’s nothing quite like tasting fall in a glass (or copper mug). It’s nearly impossible to pry a couple from their accommodation at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, especially when it’s a Roman Tower Suite or Champagne Tower Select. Therefore, we’ve compiled five of our favorite fall cocktail recipes, as selected by our staff members. When combined with a soak in a heart-shaped whirlpool tub or a fireside snuggle, these fall drinks are bound to turn up the heat.

5 Delicious Fall Cocktail Recipes: Living the Suite Life

Several online publications, such as Country Living, The Oprah Magazine, and Delish, unleash yearly lists stuffed with dozens of fall cocktail recipes. Sometimes there’s just too much eye candy in one place. Thus, we’ve pieced together a digestible, five-recipe compilation that is sure to provide a little extra spice this fall. Before we begin, it’s worth noting that all fantasy suites come equipped with a personal refrigerator.

1. Apple & Gin Autumn Cocktail

If you’re searching for a smooth, tart fall cocktail recipe, you better purchase a bottle of artisanal gin. You’ll also need fresh apple cider, apple matchsticks, liquid honey, and a dash of cinnamon (among other things) to piece together this yummy concoction. It’s seasonal heaven in a glass.

2. Caramel Apple Moscow Mule Fall Cocktail

Keep your cinnamon sticks handy because this delectable cocktail is as autumnal as it gets. Combine caramel vodka, apple cider, lime juice, chilled ginger beer, and ground cinnamon and let your tastebuds bathe in the fall-y goodness.

3. Spiced Apple Margaritas

Margaritas often go hand in hand with summer. But that’s all about to change. We give you the spiced apple margarita, a festive, Middle Eastern specialty that enhances this classic Mexican drink. Reposado tequila is a must here, as you need that oak barrel-aged flavor.

4. Warm Apple Pie Cocktail

This mouthwatering recipe does require a kitchen, so it’s one to try at home. But it’s worth a spot on this list regardless. When combined with cider, cinnamon, allspice, and clove, rum has a way of pinning a smile on one’s face. Don’t forget the whipped cream topping!

5. Autumn Rickey

There are two ways to make a rickey: gin or bourbon. It’s a simplistic drink at heart. During autumn’s peak, a warming bourbon is the way to go. The key here is the maple syrup, which adds a much-needed sweetness to the drink for some.

Unlike most Poconos lodges, Cove Haven’s accommodations are the main draw, primarily because of the wood-burning fireplaces, heart-shaped whirlpool baths, dry saunas, and heated pools.

Please call us today at 800-432-9932 to book a well-deserved couples vacation (or check availability online).


Poconos ATV Rentals: Go Muddin’ near Cove Haven

As we gradually enter autumn’s vibrant realm, it’s natural for couples to want to spend as much time outdoors as possible before Jack Frost greets Northeast Pennsylvania. Here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, we embrace winter’s arrival as much as any other four-season destination. “Common” on-site winter activities include snowmobiling, Nordic skiing, snow tubing, and snowshoeing. However, the autumnal thrill of a multi-hour ATV ride underneath falling, colorful leafage is indescribable. Keep reading to learn more about purchasing a Poconos ATV rental.

Find Your Ride: Poconos ATV Rentals and Tours

Some couples arrive in the Pocono Mountains with their ATVs strapped down on their trailer. Others have never hopped aboard an ATV in their lifetime. Regardless, it’s important to point out that only three local outfits offer rental services and backcountry tours (as noted below). Typically, all signs point to Pocono ATVs on Grange Road, located only one mile away from Paradise Stream Resort.

Pocono ATVs – Mount Pocono

For obvious reasons, we typically steer guests to neighboring Pocono ATVs. Its convenient location is only outmatched by the affordability, gnarly terrain, and charismatic guides. After getting acquainted with your newfound Poconos ATV rental, you’ll motor into the “unknown” atop a state-of-the-art vehicle. With approximately 200 woodland acres at your disposal, you’ll be able to roar through the towering timbers at blazing speeds. If there has been a recent downpour, you’re in for a muddy surprise!

Pocono Outdoor Adventure Tours – Long Pond

If Pocono ATVs is fully booked or you feel like exploring the southwesterly topography, we recommend Pocono Outdoor Adventure Tours in Long Pond. Two-seater tours cost only $115 per couple for an hour-plus of backland riding. There will be ample time to switch drivers throughout the guided excursion, which is grittier, quieter, and wilder than most tours in the region. As a point of reference, this Long Pond company is approximately 24 minutes away from Paradise Stream Resort.

The Lost Trails ATV Adventures – Dunmore

On the edge of the Wyoming Valley (Scranton and Wilkes-Barre), lies a 2,000-acre natural wonderland. Tours rumble through mostly rocky terrain with the Pocono Mountains seen at a distance. You’ll stumble across creeks, plenty of mud, a cave, and a lake en route to a dramatic climb to a jaw-dropping mountaintop overlook. Getting “lost” has never been so alluring. Because Lost Trails is closer to the city, their Poconos ATV rentals are a little pricier than other competitors. However, the experience is priceless!

All-Inclusive Resorts in Pennsylvania

If you’re hoping to avoid spending money on guided tours, look no further than Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. Through our all-inclusive Key Around Club, you’ll obtain free access to snowmobiles, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing gear, kayaks, paintball guns, golf clubs, fishing rods, ice skates, bicycles, and so much more! Each adult-only escape also includes live entertainment, two meals daily, and, of course, a stay inside a world-famous Champagne Tower or heart-shaped whirlpool suite. To learn more about a potential couples getaway in Pennsylvania’s “honeymoon country,” please visit us online. Otherwise, you can call us directly at 800-432-9932.


Spray and Pray: Adult-Only Paintball in the Poconos

Escape to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the “Honeymoon Capital of the World.” All three of our adult-only resorts are within two hours of New York City. Thus, you’re running out of excuses to not embark on a well-deserved couples’ vacation deep into the heart of the Poconos Mountains. Couples can partake in a wide variety of adventuresome activities, including archery, fishing, paddling, water tubing, and laser tag. You’ll also be happy to hear that we offer the only adult-only paintball in the Poconos.

Setting the Scene: Paintball in the Poconos

Whether you’re a “newb,” a “kamikaze,” or a “baller,” you’ll discover a little slice of paintball heaven in a remote field near Albrightsville. Through our year-round Paintball Package, which we’ll dissect a little later, couples can embark on a short journey to Skirmish’s head-turning, capacious field. Paintballers from all across the Northeast visit Skirmish to partake in some of the most elaborative wars on dazzlingly-designed grounds.

 

Skirmish boasts 700 acres (you read that right) of countryside real estate, which houses 50 paintball paddocks. Besides your classic pastures, woods, and creeks, this Albrightsville attraction features castles, cargo containers, villages, swamps, and tanks. It’s time to pump up the adrenaline and buckle up for some of the wildest, most intricate paintball in the Poconos!

The Paintball Package

Before continuing, it’s worth noting that our very own Pocono Palace Resort offers complimentary paintball in the Poconos’ honeymoon mecca. Obviously, the paintball wars that ensue on our property aren’t nearly as extreme as Skirmish’s contests. Now, the Paintball Package costs only $150 per couple. You don’t have to be a pro baller to appreciate this combo special, which includes Skirmish admission, air fills, camo overalls, belt packs, goggles, facemask, and, yes, 1,000 paintballs! That’s hours upon hours of ammunition for just $75 per person. Instead of searching for “paintball near me” this autumn, simply visit us at CovePoconoResorts.com (or bookmark this article).

Romantic Places in Pennsylvania: Pocono Palace

After embarking on a tree-top canopy tour, relishing a lakeside picnic, and enjoying some electrifying paintball in the Poconos, head inside for a hearty gourmet dinner. Potential culinary delights include Caribbean mahi-mahi, lobster ravioli, and prime rib. Don’t forget that Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is all-inclusive, consisting of two meals daily, dozens of on-site activities, live entertainment, and seductive fantasy suites. Whether you’re planning a honeymoon getaway, a romantic escape, or a last-minute vacay, you’ll instantly fall in love with Cove Haven’s unique blend of romance, convenience, entertainment, beauty, and hospitality. Start the planning process by giving us a call today at 800-432-9932. You can also book directly online to save money and avoid hidden third-party fees.


The Top 3 Apple Orchards in Pennsylvania

The mountains and hillocks that roll through the countryside in Eastern Pennsylvania, as well as neighboring New York and New Jersey, provide idyllic temperatures and soil for fruit-forward farmsteads. Strawberries, blueberries, and even peaches thrive in the backcountry near Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the country’s most beloved adult-only romantic escape. Many of the finest apple orchards in Pennsylvania are a short drive from our honeymoon resorts. Thus, we’ve decided to spice up your day with a healthy serving of Galas, Honeycrisps, and Ginger Golds.

Apple Orchards in Pennsylvania: Ripe for the Picking

While most couples have strolled through an apple orchard at least once in their lifetime together, it’s important to note just how utterly playful and flirtatious the experience is (regardless if you’re keen on fruit or not). The surrounding Pocono Mountains, which just happen to be shedding their summer “skin” during peak picking season, provide quite the backdrop at these three hand-selected apple orchards in Pennsylvania’s “honeymoon capital.” Without further ado, let’s take a bite out of the local orchard scene.

Grim’s Orchard & Family Farms – Breinigsville, PA

West of Allentown lies a quaint, lovely pumpkin and apple orchard known as Grim’s. There’s certainly nothing grim about spending an afternoon at Grim’s Family Farm, a multi-purpose extravaganza that’s equally kid-friendly and seasonally enticing. The farm boasts many cute animals (including piglets and goat kids), a corn maze, a makeshift go-kart track, a “hay place,” and, of course, several acres of pick-your-own fruit. Grim’s remains one of the most underrated apple orchards in Pennsylvania. We simply cannot get enough of several varieties, including Shizuka, Crimson Jonagold, and Pixie Crunch.

Lakeland Orchard & Cidery – Scott Township, PA

Approximately 30 miles northwest of Cove Haven Resort lies Lakeland Orchard, a family-owned, U-pick institution. With over 30 different types of apple hybrids, Lakeland isn’t short on innovation. The family farm spans over 100 acres, including a sunflower meadow, a zinnia field, and a pumpkin patch. But most folks arrive in hopes of filling a peck or two with juicy, crisp apples. Make sure to allot plenty of time, as the farm features over 20,000 apple trees. Come for the apples, stay for the hard cider, live music, and yard games!

Gulick Fruit Farm – Bangor, PA

Have you ever visited a fifth-generation fruit farm? Yeah, us neither. Until we discovered the Gulick Fruit Farm in Bangor, which is only a few miles south of the jaw-dropping Delaware Water Gap. Don’t expect the type of programming, amenities, and sheer acreage offered at Lakeland or Grim’s. However, the panoramic Pocono Mountain views are undeniably sublime, especially around dusk. A trip to Gulick only requires an hour or two, which aligns perfectly with a stay at nearby Pocono Palace Resort.

All-Inclusive Resorts in Pennsylvania: Cove Haven³

After spending a late morning or early afternoon at one of the prettiest apple orchards in Pennsylvania, remember to utilize your exclusive access to Cove Haven’s Key Around Club. Club access allows guests to partake in any activity at any of our three resorts! Don’t forget that an all-inclusive stay with Cove Haven includes two gourmet meals daily, unlimited access to our on-site activities, live entertainment, and, last but not least, a tantalizing accommodation, such as the world-famous Champagne Tower Whirlpool suite. Apple picking in the Poconos has never been sexier, thanks to our array of all-inclusive luxuries! Please give us a call today at 800-432-9932 (or check availability online) to book a well-deserved, long-awaited romantic escape to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World.”


After Dark Romance at Cove Haven: 10 Tantalizing Activities

Thankfully, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” remains a beacon of light in the heart of the rolling Pocono Mountains. Couples can fill their days with gourmet cuisines, absolute relaxation, playful (and complimentary) activities before dusk inevitably arrives as the sun dips behind the densely-forested horizon. With Cove Haven’s live entertainment programming adhering to the state’s health guidelines, sweethearts could potentially have a little extra after dark free time on their hands this autumn. Thus, we’ve pieced together a fun after dark activity guide. After all, there’s nothing quite as a seductive as a healthy dose of moonlit romance.

Cove Haven after Dark: Playful, Uninhibited, and Liberating

As you might imagine, most couples choose to spend the hours superseding twilight inside a luxury suite, complete with a fireplace, sauna, and heart-shaped pool. However, you’re free to move about the campus in search of some outdoorsy seclusion underneath a blanket of stars and a curious moon. After dark romance naturally provides elements of seduction, energy, and adventure to an already stellar day in the Pocono Mountains.

  1. Stargaze during a hand-in-hand walk amid dense forestry, moonlit spring water, and the soothing sounds of nature.
  2. Soak in a world-famous Champagne Tower Whirlpool.
  3. Sway to live music from a local musician, skilled DJ, or renowned performer.
  4. Plan an outdoor candlelit picnic, complete with a bottle of wine, chocolate-covered desserts, and a “midnight” snack.
  5. Enjoy a nightcap inside one of our dazzling, retro bars.
  6. Swim underneath the stars in a glowing pool or pristine Lake Wallenpaupack.
  7. Play a bevy of tantalizing hotel games in your suite.
  8. Host a two-person wine (or beer) tasting. Make sure to check out our local winery and craft beer guides beforehand.
  9. Go fishing after dark. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band had it right, after all.
  10. Create your own Poconos-style bucket list.

How to Travel with Your Love: 10 Travel Tips for Couples

It takes years to learn each other’s dietary restrictions, desired destinations, idyllic mid-day activities, sleeping habits, budgetary ideals, and taboo road trip subjects. Oftentimes, these aspects may differ on vacation in comparison to real life. Believe it or not, but most people’s personalities change while traveling. Sometimes for the better; sometimes for the worse. Also, one person’s expectations may vastly differ from their partner’s vision. Thus, many couples opt to choose an all-inclusive destination where worries about fluctuating budgets, tourist traps, and mid-day lulls float away like a child’s balloon. To ensure that your first romantic escape to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is nothing short of flawless, we’ve pieced together 10 travel tips for couples.

10 Travel Tips for Couples: Balance, Compromise, and Romance

Whether you’ve never traveled together or you’re looking for ways to enhance your next adult-only getaway into the Pocono Mountains, these 10 travel tips for couples should provide ample balance to the trip. Traveling as a couple, much like relationships, takes compromise, patience, and honesty. And, please, do whatever you can to amplify the fun. We’ll certainly do our part!

  1. Plan a detailed itinerary – Planning a trip together takes several hours of research, conversation, and maneuvering. But, at the end of the day, it’s well worth it. Compromise is key here. And don’t forget to compile a list of potential backup plans in case inclement weather rolls through.
  2. Bring a heap of in-suite accessories – Whether a storm’s in the area or you just don’t want to leave the comfort of your suite, it’s always a good idea to bring games, music, candles, scented oils, and reading materials.
  3. Make a playlist for the road trip – Utilize Spotify by piecing together a lengthy playlist filled with all of your favorite road trip-esque tracks. Take turns making song selections so that there’s plenty of genre variance.
  4. Plan a surprise for him or her – Itineraries are key, but sometimes a surprise pit stop, gift, or activity is precisely what’s needed to spice things up a notch.
  5. Unplug – Turn off those smartphones. Leave the laptop at home. Focus your energy on each other.
  6. Try new things – Vacation is the perfect time to try as many new things as humanly possible. Learning new skills, especially when accomplished together, is incredibly invigorating and undeniably tantalizing.
  7. Eat healthily – It’s vital to know each other’s dietary restrictions, first and foremost. You also don’t want to feel sluggish at any point during the trip. Luckily, we offer a diverse range of eats, from juicy steaks to fresh salads and pan-fried fish.
  8. Stick to the budget – Make room in the budget for a couple of luxuries or pleasures. However, going off-script can lead to unexpected financial stressors.
  9. Take photos (but stay in the moment) – Photography plays an integral role in travel. Being able to look back on a trip and feel something is very important. However, don’t get lost behind the lens. Make time for photos, but remain grounded in the moment itself.
  10. Sleep in – It’s a vacation after all. No alarms needed here. Earlybirds will likely rise with the sun anyway. Don’t let technology tell you when it’s time to greet the day. Naturally, our bodies tell us when it’s appropriate to rise.
