    DH and I splurged on one of those corny honeymoon resorts when we got married... and we absolutely loved it!! We had a miniature pool, a champaigne glass whirlpool, a sauna... the works, all right there in our suite. It was so much fun. We went horseback riding, on a hayride, etc, etc.

    The same chain has four resorts in the Poconos, one of which is family-oriented. It's owned by Ceasar's. This link takes you to all their properties- we stayed at Cove Haven, which was couple-oriented, but, like I said, some of the others are more for families if that's what you're looking for.

    We don't live far so we take a ride out there everyonce in a while, there's a nice place called Bushkill Falls, lots of hiking trails around waterfalls-I believe it was $10 for both of us. If you go further south and west there is the Strousberg railroad, its a running antique railroad that goes through Amish country. Not sure if it is still considered the Poconos there, might be too far south, but we had a good time. Poconos has a beautiful foliage season over the next 6-8 weeks and there is great biking and rafting.

    I'm in northern New Jersey, 15 or so miles east of the Delaware Water Gap. We've been here 7 years and love it. It's gorgeous country. Along with the Bushkill Falls there is another nice falls (in a little village called Dingman's Ferry). It's a nice walk along a wooden boardwalk to the falls. It's run by the Parks Service. After living in Canada all my life, an hour from Niagara Falls, we chuckled at these because they're little .. but it's a lovely drive around here any season, and going to the falls makes a nice outing. You can walk up stairs to the top of the falls you want. We've been there quite a few times when people come to visit. It's a nice walk and free.

    Here's a website with pics of the Falls
