The World’s Largest Treasure Hunt: Geocaching near Cove Haven

June 3, 2020

One of 2020’s fastest-growing outdoor recreational activities, regardless of age, is Geocaching®, the world’s largest treasure hunt.

This “sport” has spread like wildfire across North America, including right here in the sprawling Pocono Mountains. Naturally, the mountains are an idyllic place to hide a treasure trove of goodies, trinkets, and heartfelt keepsakes. In fact, here at Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts, many clever lovers utilize the art of a geocache proposal, in which the cache itself is a diamond ring.

Geocaching 101

Without getting overly technical, geocaching is, in broad terms, a 21st-century GPS-enabled treasure hunt where outdoor enthusiasts seek (or hide) a “cache” using nothing but a smartphone, cryptic directions, and years of intuition. There are several apps on the market, but Geocaching.com is the obvious choice. Instead of blindly searching for the “best places to go geocaching near me,” simply enter the app and get started. You’ll be happy to know that there are hundreds of caches near all three of our historic couples retreats. For those that have never geocached with your partner, this hobby can be quite playful, romantic, and flirtatious.

3 Adult-Only Resorts, Hundreds of Possibilities

We won’t spend too much time on the details. Instead, we’ll leave the exploration to you and your partner. After all, the “hunt” is the best part of each adventure. It’s worth noting that Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts provides a bevy of complimentary on-site activities, such as bicycling, paintball, and kayaking. There are also several nearby diversions, including mountaintop ziplining, craft distilleries, and horseback riding. Oh, and a tantalizing Champagne Tower Suite is waiting for you at the end of each day.

 

Many caches lie near Pennsylvania Route 940 within minutes of Paradise Stream Resort. Nearby Kurmes Preserve is said to have a handful of challenging caches and countless acres of sheer tranquility. As you might expect, Cove Haven Resort is a short distance from “The Tunnel of Love,” a small cache near the property’s entrance. Countless hidden gems lie on both ends of Lake Wallenpaupack, including “The Forgotten Woods” and “Pebble Beach Peek-a-boo.” Pocono Palace Resort, the pride of East Stroudsberg, is a short drive from Mt. Nebo Park, home to nearly a dozen caches. We recommend purchasing (or creating) a “geocaching toolbox” if you aim to spend several hours in the dense Pocono wilderness.

Romantic Weekend Getaways in Pennsylvania

There’s never been a more desirable time in history to escape New York City en route to the “Honeymoon Capital of the World.” But, of course, you don’t have to be a honeymooner to plan an extended weekend getaway to Cove Haven Entertainment Resorts. Spend your days sunbathing, swimming, sipping cocktails, and paddling before indulging in steak, live music, and a late-night fireside snuggle in your private suite.
