Stephen and i finally had a sunday off after 8 straight weddings in a row!! we needed to get away any have some “US” time!

here is our journey!

So it’s early morning and we are hungry! we took the hopwood
exit because it said FOOD. their was only a subway lol don’t be fooled! but we turned around and headed back and Steve spotted a cute little dinner!!! i was beyond excited!

super cute place with all MALE staff. thought that was pretty cool breakfast cost around $21.00

Second stop was the laurel cavern, this was just amazing! walking in the caves 8 stories down! “Child friendly” took about an hour and it was $12.00 per person!

not to mention there are tours that run every 20 minutes which means you never have to wait in line!!! we got there and in 2 minutes our tour left.

if you go make sure you don’t forget to go out on the back deck and see the amazing view!!






This view!!!!!!



Third stop for us was, Sun set beach marina
We lathered up in sun block and hit the water for 2 hour with our paddle boards on cheat lake!
“if you never tried this, it’s amazing!”

They rent everything from boats, kayaks, canoe, tubes. just about everything! paddle boarding is $20.00 per hour per board.   total $80.00 for 2 hours of fun!


following this there is an AMAZING lake view restaurant which is like 20 steps from the marina!

Absolutely amazing food and you get to set on the deck right beside the water. WINNING!!!
total cost; $45.00 “including alcohol”

Forth stop; Coopers rock, this is about a 10 minute drive from the marina, Absolutely worth it.
it takes about 5 minutes to walk back the path: but it’s an amazing site to see “and photograph”

we spent about 20-30 minutes here just breathing in the fresh air!!!  FREE

From here we headed to our fifth and last stop Cucumber falls in Ohio Pyle.  FREE

We planed on a small hike but this didn’t happen once we pulled in you literally walk 100 feet and you can see the waterfall. it was just amazing. absolutely Beautiful!!!

we walked down, got in the water and chilled for a bit taking in the beauty!


After this we drove down to the old country store right beside the bride and got Ourselves some ice cream and Redbulls “yes i needed it after this full day” we sat on the tables outside taking in all the beauty! $12.00

From here we headed home it was one heck of a day absolutely filled with tons of fun!!!

The sun setting was just the perfect golden set, tons of lip syncing and hookah smoking!

This was the end to our amazing day! we got home while it was still light out, hopped in the pool and had a few beer!

Talk about a crazy adventure for a Sunday afternoon!

I made this trip up the night before we left! just using Pinterest and google maps!

think you might like to take the trip? here is all the information you need!!!


Don't let the 3 hours and 6 minutes turn you away! it's 3 hours round trip and you barely even know you are driving with all the pit stops

Tip #1    fill up your gas tank the night before {no gas stops needed = more fun}

Tip #2   pack some water and a few snack to much for lunch and only eat out breakfast and dinner

Tip #3   leave before 10am to be back around 9Pm (Take into consideration your starting point may be further than ours from 15676

Tip #4   Don't plan, JUST GO!! you will not regret it!
