Popping the big question, getting engaged, proposing, ready to get hitched, planning to get down on bended knee, asking for her hand in marriage—however you choose to phrase it. You want that moment to be special. In Northeast PA, you are afforded hundreds of unique opportunities to make your engagement memorable from excellent romantic settings at great area restaurants (Tunkhannock has quite a few) to the great wide open with the Endless Mountains in the back drop.
Here are just a few ideas:
Where to ask:
Take a train ride from Steamtown or Jim Thorpe – ask as
the train is pulling out of the station.

the pull off on route 11, stand behind her and enjoy the
view and as she’s completely enthralled in the scenery pop

breakfasts—Wyoming County offers quite a few. Bed and
Breakfasts often offer a more intimate and comfortable
setting for your proposal.
The Endless Mountains host an excellent choice of
wineries…choose your favorite or visit them all – pick
the one you like the best and ask her with glass of wine in
hand to say “I do”.
The Wyalusing Rocks also offer a wonderfully natural and
romantic setting for asking for her hand.
Share a love for outdoors? Skiing at Elk Mountain or Sno-Mountain
– asking as best you can while going down the slopes (just
don’t drop that ring in the snow).
Did you go to school together? Take her to the front door of
your old alma mater or join her on the swings at the
