have you tried uncommon places???? a long weekend somehwere fun??  the atlantic coastlines have plenty of cute towns you could try to find something… or there’s savanah, georgia….key west, florida….seaside, florida (or anywhere along scenic 30 A)… you might be able to find a cruise for 3 nights that could fit into your budget.  you might even try a travel agent.

one more really nice option would be to register for your honeymoon instead of gifts.  my friend did this and i wish we had also.  we didn’t take a honeymoon and said we’d do it for our 1st anniversary, but it’s looking like now that isn’t going to happen either.  

congrats on the baby!

Congrats on the pregnancy! I know Florida has some nice hidden gems if you want to go somewhere warm and sunny. I’m not 100% sure on flights, but you should be able to find a coastal town there with a decent priced B&B maybe.

Well I am a big believer that EVERYONE deserves a Honeymoon (or at least a Mini Moon)

To be honest, your idea of heading off for decent weather is a fair one considering December in Minnesota… BUT with a budget of just $ 1000 for the entire vacation getaway, I don’t think you’ll get very far

Example… I looked at Myrtle Beach, which I happen to know can be a fun city, and although it won’t be beach / swimming weather, it can be quite nice in December (this from a girl who lives in Canada and heads down to MB often just for a chance to get away from our horrid weather… lol, that and Mr TTR loves to golf).  And MB isn’t crazy expensive in the off-season.  Anyhow airfare mid December… Minneapolis to MB is going to cost you $ 450 return each… so no great bargain.

In my mind, MB is going to be one of the cheapest places to go down south at that time of year, and unfortunately it is still beyond your budget.

Sorry, but as I see it you either have to up your budget, or down your expectatoins.

Hope this helps (some),

*NOTE – I found really cheap flights to Orlando Florida for a Tuesday (Dec 10th) at $ 307, but I don’t particularly find Orlando (aka The Theme Parks) to be a cheap Destination, BUT the weather is good, and there is a ton to see and do.  Fun Location.

@Sunshine1011:  What about Las Vegas? Even if you don’t like gambling it’s a pretty cool place to visit. I’ve been in December and was thrilled to see the sunshine! It’s pretty easy to get hotel deals there! Especially if you wait until Thanksgiving for Cyber Monday Deals!
