So I’m looking for honeymoon ideas for FI and I. We live in KY and really don’t want to fly since we’re on a budget. We wanna go somewhere somewhat warm lol. I was looking to go somewhere in the southeast/west (florida, texas, etc). Are there any cities that you all love that we should go to?
We’re really not into partying. I wanna go shopping. If the weather permits, having a beach would be amazing as well. Finding a hotel won’t be a problem lol, I just have no idea where to go and what part of the city!
Any help would be wonderful! =D
Just incase, we’re planning on leaving 12/9 and either checking in 12/9 or 12/10 (texas and florida are about 15+ hrs away lol) and trying to decide if we wanna check out 12/13 or stay a little longer til 12/15.

Travel Nut here…
If you are considering Florida, you might want to look at Tampa… lots to see and do there. One of my favourite cities in Florida. And if you want the Beach, Clearwater isn’t sooo far away.

Other favourite destinations of mine in Florida…
Orlando – St Augustine – Daytona Beach – Sanibel Island – Fort Lauderdale – and The Florida Keys
Florida has a lot to offer… something for everyone.
Weather early to mid December should be decent… the coldest weather usually coming towards late December and into January.
Just remember that the further south you go the better the weather generally is…
This should get you started… If you have any specific Questions… post again.
Hope this helps,

@CatyLady: thanks =)
@This Time Round: Thank you so much for the help! I will definately look into those sites =) I’ve been orlando once, and I loved it. I was there for World Series (softball) and went to disney and stuff. But FI doesn’t really like amusement parks and such
@howsweetitis: I’ve thought about miami… But I’m scared it’d be too “party” for us. We don’t go out and party or drink really lol.

We’re going to Las Vegas for ours! If you like Texas, what about Austin? Austin is a beautiful city with so much to do! It has a great music scene and a great culture about it. You can also think about somewhere near Gulf Shores…I think it crosses into both Florida and Alabama. I’m not sure what it is like at this time of year, but I went with family several years ago (I was 18 then…) and it was beautiful!
