@Nelly1214:  Vancouver & Whistler, BC are beautiful that time of year and perfect for skiing.  I’m a little biased though as it’s my backyard 😉

@MrsBananas:  I totally second the suggestion of going to Vancouver/Whistler for snow. Vancouver is an awesome city, tons of things to do there, and Whistler has great skiing – perfect honeymoon spot 🙂 

In October, do you want to go somewhere warm or you don’t mind if it’s cold? Do you like beaches or adventuring around cities and urban areas? Are you outdoorsy?

My recommendations for a trip in October would be New York (it will be starting to get chilly, but NYC is always romantic!!), Nashville (a little warmer, cool city with lots of things to do), the Carolinas (also on the warmer side, very romantic towns & cities), San Diego or Florida (beach!), Seattle/San Juan Islands (mix of city & outdoorsy trip, although it could be rainy in October), or maybe even a cruise around Maine to see the fall colors on the trees – it’s supposed to be beautiful!

@Nelly1214:  October is a gorgeous time of year in the SE appalachian Mt.’s! You could rent a cabin in a cutesy artsy town like Helen/Blue Ridge, GA or Ashville, NC (or the Biltmore there) or Gatlinburg, TN

I moved from GA 5 years ago to CA & the only thing I miss (other than family of course) is seeing those gorgeous fall colors coating the mountains as far as the eye can see!

October is great for the mid atlantic/new england area.  Its chilly but very scenic.  If you are history buffs DC/Philadelphia/Boston are quite close to each other, less than 2 hour flights.  I feel like NYC is sort of a mandatory visit because it is wonderful and has a lot to do.  I dont find new york romantic but I live in a big city so I just get the city vibe.

We went to Whitefish, Montana last month for our honeymoon – I highly recommend it!  Great skiing, lots of stuff to do, Glacier National Park in 20 minutes away.

October in Pennsylvania is really nice!!  Lots of stuff to do there as well- hiking, sightseeing, amish country visits, etc.

I would also suggest Western N.C. (Asheville area) or Eastern TN during October.

Where are you from? That makes a big difference. If you are from the south or the west coast it might be nice to come to New York. (That’s where I am from) The trees that time of year are absolutely gorgeous. There is a ton of apple picking, pumpkin picking, hiking, in NYC there are plays, museums, clubs, etc. It can be very romantic here that time of year. If you are from this area or you are looking for something warmer, I visited Florida in october and it felt like summer does here. We were able to go to beaches, aquariums, theme parks, etc. It’s in the US but has a bit more of a tropical honeymoon feel.

@Nelly1214:  Whistler is a great choice and you won’t be dissappointed!  There’s world class dining, amazing outdoor adventures, a kick-ass nightlife scene and of course skiiing/boarding.  The mountains usually open mid-November (give or take a week or two depending on snow levels) and the village is always magical when there is snowfall. 

Whistler is broken into 2 general areas,the Village and Creekside.  The village is the heart of Whistler at the base of Blackcomb and Whistler mountains.  From there its just steps to the slopes, shopping and dining.  Creekside is a quieter area about a 10 minute drive to the main village.  There is a small village feel here with limited dining and shopping options.  Ski-in/ski-out options are also available here.  I have stayed in both areas but really recommend staying in the Main Village.

There’s no shortage of accomodations ranging from luxury hotels, condo/townhomes rentals or private residences.  I’ve enjoyed staying at the Westin Resort & Spa and the Fairmont Chataeu Whistler but those can get pricey.  The Delta and Crystal Lodge are more economical and are also in walking distance to the Village.

Hope that helps and you choose to come up here!  It really is one of the prettiest towns 🙂
