Saylorsburg, Pa. -- Mention the Poconos and certain time-burnished images of that Pennsylvania area come to mind. Hotel suites named Fantasia II. Stock-car racing. Candle factories and Christmas shops on Route 611 as it climbs to the town of Mount Pocono, sometimes called the honeymoon capital of the world.But one image not likely to occur is this one: two African-American men, young musicians in hip-hop gear, bobbing to a ground-shaking beat in a recording studio."Not the kind of setting you'd expect hip-hop to come out of, is it?"

That means there's still plenty of winter weather ahead, and there's still plenty of time to escape to a cozy romantic retreat - in Phil's home state, no less. We've found three such places for you, all in the Pocono Mountains - 200 miles north of Baltimore (and 220 miles east of Punxsutawney, Pa.). If you think the Pocono region is the land of heart-shaped bathtubs in tacky resorts, you're in for a surprise.

Unleash your inner Tiger (Woods). If you haven't had enough golf this weekend with the Masters, head north to Pennsylvania. The Pocono Mountains are kicking off spring and the 2011 golf season with specials from more than 35 regional golf courses. The plan: The Poconos are less than a four-hour drive from Baltimore, making it an easy destination for a weekend trip. Golf resorts in the area have been designed by names that rank among the best in the game, including Donald Ross and Art Wall Jr. Whether pros or just playing for fun, golfers can customize their trip by choosing courses, accommodations and activities that appeal to them.

"Fall is huge," said Gillian Moore of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. The geology of the sprawling 2,400-square-mile Poconos region in northeastern Pennsylvania means the blaze of fall foliage peaks at different times in three distinct zones, so there's more time to savor the reds and oranges.
