    I would not take a trip just to please others. If you really dont enjoy it I would use that money for something you guys do love.

    Much like you, we don’t like to travel much [however we do enjoy big cities]. We like the beach but we don’t like it enough to stay a long time.

    We decided a roadtrip would be best for us, we’ll be visiting 5 locations in indiana, michigan & illinois which includes many different restaurants and attractions, and we’ll end our trip with a 2 night stay in a suite [with an in room pool!]

    andreagrace:  Do you have any great B&B’s or country inns near where you live? You can book a couple of nights, have a great dinner, breakfast in bed and maybe a couples massage, then sneak back home to do what you want.

    Go to a local bed and breakfast and go get a nice couples massage the next day and do a really nice dinner. Simple and relaxing.

    andreagrace:  Don’t take a honeymoon bc you feel pressured to do so, if you don’t like to travel then don’t. You don’t want to take an unwanted vacation and not enjoy yourselves and then end up fighting bc you are both miserable. 

    I would suggest that when people tell you to take a honeymoon, just tell them “traveling is not our thing, we don’t like it and we would enjoy eachother’s company as husband and wife in the comfort of our own home!”

    I do agree that you should still take a week off from work

    Why spend time, money, and effort to do something you don’t want to do?  I can’t fathom not liking or wanting to travel, but that’s me.  If you are happy just relaxing at home and enjoying your time together, then that’s what you should do.

    First, I don’t think you need to take a trip just to please other people. Personally, stay-cations have never worked for me because, I don’t relax as much at home as I do if I leave. When I’m home there’s always something I should be doing – cleaning, dealing with bills or to-do items. So I wouldn’t be able to fully relax at home if I felt like I should be setting up house together, etc. But that may just be me, I know other people that enjoy and relax with stay-cations. I will say that it’s nice to have a couple days to just relax and bask in the newlywed glow and recount your wedding.

    Have you thought about renting a cabin for a couple days? My husband I do this every winter and we love it! We hole up in a cabin with movies, games and good food/drink. We always get a cabin with a hot tub so we can sit in it and enjoy the snowy wonderland around us without freezing. We also get a fireplace so we can sit and chat and watch the fire. It’s nice and relaxing and romantic and good for our relationship.

    So you could, maybe, do a couple days in a local cabin just to relax and focus on the two of you, then head back home and do stuff around the house for the rest of your time off work. Best of both worlds!

    Don’t take a honeymoon if you don’t want to. However, if you really are intent on taking a honeymoon to get everyone off your back, then how about a local bed & breakfast for a weekend? You can relax and go to a couples’ spa.
