“I do” Ideas: Honeymoon Ideas (Part 4 of 4!)

For the final installation of honeymoon ideas, I thought we could look at some ideas a little more closer to home, right here in the US! There’s lots of beautiful places in our country that make for great getaways!

Continental US


“Find yourself here”

Sue S visited California with her husband last year for her honeymoon. She says “We went to Northern California. Marin County is beautiful. I LOVED Muir Woods! Stinson Beach has a great laid back surfer type vibe. We loved taking drives up and down the coast line in our rented convertible...especially to Point Reyes National Seashore! Beautiful. The convertible really made the trip. Oh and riding the cable cars in San Francisco wasn't bad either.”

“Discover your Florida side”

Tana, who honeymooned in Florida last May, says “We went to Orlando, FL specifically Disney World. Jim and I are not beach people but we wanted to go somewhere warm, where we could eat great food, enjoy incredible wine, have fun, and swim with dolphins (my only request!). Orlando, FL has all that and more. We stayed on Disney property and had a great time exploring the theme parks as well as eating some of the best meals of our lives and enjoying a leisurely 10 day trip. The entire time we were there we were treated like royalty because it was our honeymoon.”

Courtney B visited a different area of Florida for her honeymoon. She says “We took a mini-moon to Key West, it is so great down there, you totally feel like you are on a tropical island but you're still in FL.”
