My FI and I had assumed we would be going to some sandals resort in a tropical place. Howvever the more I thought about the more it didn’t make sense. The FI and I aren’t a relax, lay in the sand type of couple. We are more outdoors, hiking type of couple (Ex: we went to gatlinsburg this summer and hiked during the day). We both have always wanted to go out west and what better time than our honeymoon. We would be going in mid-May. Any suggestions bees?

We’re going to the Canadian Rockies in late May! Here’s a thread I started where I ask for a few tips: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/honeymoon-in-canadian-rockies-tips
I didn’t get a ton of suggestions, but maybe you hadn’t considered Canada at all.
Don’t you want to go here?

Aspen Colorado is a fantastic place. Or, Park City, Utah (charming quaint city, lots to do).

The Tetons and Yellowstone are amazing and there’s a huge range of hikes to do depending on how serious you want to get. It’ll still be fairly chilly in mid-May, but there’d also be fewer tourists.

I live in Utah. Tetons/Yellowstone could be chilly or even snowy. May is kind of a shoulder season for mountain activities, but the mountain towns (down lower) would be very nice.
As someone mentioned, Park City could be a place to visit. The Utah national parks would be pretty warm (80s-90s) but a doable time to visit (you could hit all 5 parks).
I recently did a trip based out of Boulder/Golden, CO. We visited many little mining towns (Idaho Falls, Wondervu, Georgetown, etc) and it was a nice drive and we hiked along the way. Not sure what mid May would be though.
