Looking for an escape during or after your uncontested divorce? Well, you don't have to go far. Pennsylvania offers you a wide selection of getaways, and at the top of the list is a visit to the Poconos Mountains.

As a Pennsylvania resident you have the ability to make your trip as long as you want or just get away for an overnight stay. Outside the natural beauty and serene environment there are activities year around that in which you can participate. There's a bit of everything for different types of travelers.

For those who like to participate in tours, not only are there plenty to pick from, but you can also chose the way you want to tour. Adventure tours are an exhilarating way to experience the landscape. Off road tours are available with an all terrain military vehicle.

Should you be looking for something a bit more sedate, walking tours are another option. Historical walking tours of towns are a delightful way to get outdoors and learn interesting historical and architectural facts, and to take your mind off your divorce. If you are looking to get a bit more out of your walking tour, you can combine the day's activities with a hike to a lake or waterfall. Ask the tour company what types of options they can combine for you. Make sure to get your reservations in ahead of time to assure your place in the tour.

Divorcing individuals who are drawn to waterfalls have no shortage of places to visit. You may want to consider visiting Raymond Skills Waterfall. This waterfall is the largest waterfall in the state of Pennsylvania and only four feet shorter than Niagara Falls. Visiting after a rainfall can give you an impressive view.

Naturally, there's a multitude of outdoor activities to in which to participate. Fishers can enjoy catching local fish such as: rainbow trout, walleye and large mouth bass. For an adrenaline rush you can embark on a whitewater rafting trip. Daily biking rentals and shuttles allow you to explore the area on your own, and there are plenty of trails to pick from.

A search on the internet will give you additional ideas for a memorable getaway. There are shopping outlets to be discovered as well as plenty of snow activities to fill your day. You may just want to snuggle up to a fire with a good book and a steamed fill cup of coffee. Whatever you do to relax and take a healthy break from your divorce is a good choice.
