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.

10 Intimate, Memorable Pocono Adventures

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that outdoor recreation still plays a massive role in our relationships. The mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests of Eastern Pennsylvania have never been more enticing than they are today. Luckily for couples in need of an extended weekend of memorable Pocono adventures, Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts is nestled in the lush, rolling backcountry, approximately 90 miles from Manhattan.

10 Pocono Adventures: Excitement and Seduction

Outdoor recreation often gets a bad rap. Contrary to popular belief, some of the most tantalizing Pocono adventures don’t take place in a suite, pool, or beach. Oftentimes, seduction, desire, and flirtation flourish amid Mother Nature’s warm embrace, deep in the Pocono heartland. Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, a beloved, adult-only romantic escape, proudly presents the Key Around Club. This exclusive club provides access to all three of our honeymoon resorts, including dozens of complimentary activities, curated by our CXOs (Chief eXcitement Officers). Because we boast three all-inclusive resorts in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, you’ll never be more than a stroll, bicycle ride, or short drive from one of these 10 Pocono adventures.

  1. Forest bathing – OK, you’re probably wondering, “What the heck is forest bathing?” Well, this ancient Japanese art form is all about utilizing your five senses. While remaining silent, listen to nature’s call, smell the fresh flora, observe the swaying greenery, feel the mossy trees, and taste the earth’s edible delights.
  2. Geocaching – Join the world’s largest treasure hunt in search of another couple’s prized artifact or memory.
  3. Birding – At its core, birding (or “birdwatching”) is easy. However, a pair of binoculars can only amplify the experience. Birding takes patience, cunning, and a keen eye. Common birds in the area include meadowlarks, bald eagles, ladder-backed woodpeckers, and cardinals.
  4. Horseback riding – We have strong relationships with three nearby riding stables in Honesdale, Cresco, and Waymart. Horseback riding is equally playful, uninhibited, and invigorating. Plus, the horses are quite beautiful and majestic.
  5. Berry picking – A sizable, undeniably romantic blueberry farm lies near the edge of Lake Wallenpaupack, just down the road from Cove Haven Resort.
  6. Waterfalling – The subtle art of “waterfalling” is as tantalizing as any other outdoor activity. There’s just something magical about exploring new terrain with your partner, far from civilization’s commotion and infrastructure.
  7. Fishing – All three of our couples destinations are located near water, including the famous Lake Wallenpaupack. Bait, hook, and reel in a monster walleye, slippery brown trout, or feisty smallmouth bass before posing for a keepsake photo!
  8. Kayaking – The aforementioned Lake Wallenpaupack provides 5,700 acres of potential paddle-forward Pocono adventures. You can also kayak on Pocono Palace Resort’s private Echo Lake.
  9. Cycling – There’s a seemingly endless network of bike paths and cycle-friendly backcountry roads in the Pocono Mountains. We provide complimentary bike rentals to ALL guests!
  10. Archery – Archery is quite intimate in nature. To learn the craft, one must be taught in close quarters. Why not learn the sport together? Laughs, shrieks of joy, and, hopefully, bullseyes will ensure.

U-Pick Berries near Scenic Lake Wallenpaupack

The sweet aromas, vibrant fruit, and lush greenery whisk couples away into the heart of a modern-day love story. Many long-standing farms in the Poconos Mountains offer “U-pick berries” for those with a keen eye for ripe fruit, whether that’s sugary blueberries, subtly-tart raspberries, or juicy strawberries. Berry picking is an art form for some and a leisurely (and playful) mid-day activity for others. Luckily for you and your sweetheart, Cove Haven Resort is a scenic, 14-mile drive away from the yummiest U-pick berries near Manhattan.

The Paupack Blueberry Farm

The Coutts family owns 42 acres of awe-inspiring, undeniably serene farmland a few miles east of Lake Wallenpaupack. Nine varieties of blueberries thrive amid tall trees, quiet ponds, and rolling hills. Repeat visitors admire the dense forestry, ancient farm equipment, and picturesque covered bridge. Oh, and the blueberries are delectably divine. While strolling through the Coutts’ three distinct blueberry fields with your partner, feel free to snap photos, share a smooch, and, of course, taste-test some of the most flavorsome U-pick berries in Pennsylvania.

The General Store: All Things Blueberry

The on-site general store is stocked to the brim with various goodies that are all blueberry “flavored,” such as syrups, jams, jellies, and, heck, even blueberry soap. And, wouldn’t you know it, the multi-talented Coutts family also crafts their own ice cream. As you might expect, the “blueberry cheesecake” ice cream is a revelation. Meanwhile, the bakery features nearly a dozen different types of baked goods, including some of the tastiest scones, muffins, and pies in the state.

Other Nearby U-Pick Berries

For those staying at Pocono Palace Resort or Paradise Stream Resort, Spring Mountain Farms and Heckman Orchards both offer U-pick berries. Heckman’s strawberry harvest will return in 2021. Spring Mountain, meanwhile, is the only U-pick berry farm in the area to grow currants, blackberries, and kiwi berries.

The Most Romantic Places in Pennsylvania

The time to book a long-awaited romantic getaway to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World” is right now before droves of curious New York City residents rediscover the seductive powers of Cove Haven Resort. Berry picking season often aligns with late summer’s golden radiance. Thus, Cove Haven’s guests can combine a couple of hours of berry picking with a half-day of tennis, swimming, fishing, and even indoor ice skating.
