Romantic Holiday in Lancaster, PA


Even though stores have been boasting Valentine’s decorations and candy filled hearts since the beginning of the year, I believe the holiday is more about spending time with your loved one, than showering them with impractical (yet sometimes adorable) gifts. Planning a weekend getaway together just might be the perfect way for you to celebrate this holiday of love. Adamstown Inns & Cottages has the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, and it is near Hershey PA which is celebrating Chocolate Covered February.

Naturally, chocolate is a great gift for women, so tastings and chocolate spas are fitting events for your holiday getaway. At Hershey's Chocolate World you can follow cocoa beans from the rain forest, all the way to the free sample at the end of the tour! Then try your hand at making a candy bar, spending time learning about the origins of chocolate, or sampling featured desserts. Most weekends in February they host a parade and hot cocoa tasting at the Hershey Museum (located on Chocolate Avenue). Zoo America is also open, and they are featuring artists who paint with chocolate.

The Hershey Spa has specials for extreme chocoholics. Get silky smooth with a chocolate sugar scrub or take a whipped cocoa bath. Try the new edible chocolate facial, or even the chocolate martini. They’ll satisfy your chocolate cravings while refreshing your body.

If you’ll still be craving chocolate by the end of the day, make sure to order chocolate covered strawberries or the chocoholic delight to add to your room at the Amethyst Inn. Spend the evening relaxing in your jacuzzi tub or snuggled up by the fireplace.

Before you depart for the weekend, make sure to stop by some antique malls, as they will have discounts for the holiday. No trip to Adamstown is complete without at least one shop at an antique store! As always, ask your innkeepers for their favorite shops and restaurants to help you plan your romantic weekend getaway. Happy Valentine’s Day!
