Your destination choice will depend on the type of couple's vacation that interests you most: sunny beaches, snowy mountains, classic architecture, historical settings, delicious food, etc... Today Brides of America has pulled together 10 honeymoon destinations, both near and far away, that fulfill a variety of desires.
Inside the U.S.A.
This country has a lovely variety of places to relax, explore, and enjoy an adventure as husband and wife.
We recently wrote a blog talking about how Florida is an Amazing Wedding Destination. If you have chosen to travel here to get married, you can just stay and continue a wonderful honeymoon right here too. We have some of the most beautiful beaches to lounge on, incredible shopping, exciting nightlife, and even some amazing theme parks to experience. Depending on where you stay - Miami, Key West, Palm Beaches, Naples, Marco Island, Orlando... - there's a little bit of everything for everyone.
Traveling to the other coast puts you in Wine Country. Spend a relaxing honeymoon tasting a variety of delicious wines, biking the countryside, and enjoying some fantastic resorts with unique spa treatments. Hundreds of wineries can be found in the areas of Napa Valley and the Sonoma Valley alone. And of course, they also have some wonderful beaches too.
Maybe the two of you prefer to escape to the mountains. Colorado has multiple elevations that each have something special to offer. There are trails to hike, mountains to climb, and incredible hot springs to enjoy. And of course, you can find lots of places to play in the snow. Ski all day, then warm up and get cozy in the resort all night.
The next two honeymoon destinations are a part of the United States, but you do have to travel a ways to get to them. The Hawaiian Islands offer a picturesque vacation getaway. You'll find tropical gardens, scenic waterfalls, romantic sunsets on the beach, delicious cuisine, and more. There are multiple islands to choose from, or you can spend a few days island-hopping.
Alaska is not just a frozen wasteland. There are plenty of places for romance. You can take an excursion cruise or even kayak in the sea and search for whales, otters, and seals. There is excellent fishing and hiking amidst breathtaking natural scenery. Stay in a luxury hotel, or rent a car and experience a few day trips traveling. Definitely don't miss the glacier tours too.
If you prefer to travel far away from home, possibly to someplace exotic and brand new to the both of you, then the following destinations may interest you more.
- Bora Bora
This small island is only 6 miles long and about 2 miles wide, but that tiny area is overflowing with beauty. It is all centered around a dormant volcano, and features lush jungle and aquamarine lagoons. Imagine the most fabulous tropical island paradise you can, and that's pretty much what you'll get here. You can spend your days snorkeling or exploring, or you can simply laze around on the beach and enjoy each other's company with a few cocktails.
Italy features many intriguing places to visit, one of which is Venice. You can take a romantic stroll around the Piazza San Marco, then take a magical gondola ride through the Grand Canal, or even visit one of the unspoiled islands nearby. Best of all, authentic Italian food is a special experience of its own.
Nothing says romance like a sunset view of the Eiffel Tower. The feeling you get while you are in Paris is laid back and relaxed. Sip red wine on the plaza, and spend your days viewing some of the most amazing art in some of the most famous museums in the world. If fine dining, culture, and romance are your idea of a perfect getaway for two, then this is the place for you.
Creative individuals have traveled to this exotic location for decades for inspiration. You will find mazes of markets filled with incredible items, belly dancers, snake charmers, acrobats, and more. There are marvelous bohemian coastal towns to explore, fantastic sunsets over the dunes of the Sahara to marvel at, and even snow topped mountains full of amazement.
The Greek Islands are a very popular honeymoon destination. There are villages perched high on the cliffs overlooking the sea. A myriad of hip boutiques, bars, and cafes abound, and you will find the best beaches in the Aegean. Between days on the beach and evenings in the clubs, there is plenty of relaxation and excitement combined, plus the gorgeous views of the countryside it is all set in.
Planning a fabulous honeymoon is a wonderful break during the wedding planning. It's one of the fun tasks that you get to tackle, much like shopping for your dream bridal gown.
When you make an appointment at our Miami bridal boutique, our goal is not only to make sure that you find the perfect wedding dress, but also that you enjoy the experience. Brides of America will pamper you while you are here, making you feel like a princess.
