I did the cruise and interior of Alaska and it was a fantastic trip. Put it off for now but save it for a nice anniversary trip or something. At first I wasn’t feeling beach honeymoon either, and we looked into Portillo, Chile, which is in the Andes, and looks like a really pretty mountain/lake type of a place.

Some ideas that would be fun for me!

Napa Valley
Colorado/Montana area
A road trip hitting Triple D spots!
Finger Lakes winery trip?
Canada? Montreal/Quebec?
Manchu Picchu, Peru?
Costa Rica?

How about looking at “lists” from travel sites?

If your still interested in hawaii you wouldn’t have to spend all day in your bathing suit. My fiance and I are going to hawaii this August for a week. We have a couple days planned out for just beach days (we will wear our bathing suits all day on these days) and for the other days we are going to a sunset cruise with dinner while whale watching, a polynesian circus type thing,a luau, and the maui bay aquarium. Maybe you could do something like that?

We’re going to Portugal. 1/2 of the trip we’ll be in Lisbon exploring and shopping and taking tours, and the other 1/2 we’ll be in the Algarve lounging on a beach. It seemed like a good mix for us, and it sounds like you guys might enjoy it too!

@Treejewel19:

Triple D = Diners, Drive Ins and Dives!

It’s a show on Food Network, don’t know if you watch?

We’re going to Maui and some of the things we’re doing that aren’t beach related are:

• Ziplining tour

• Bike tour down the Haleakala volcano mountain (and watch the sunrise before)

• Old Lahaina Luau

• Hikes around the island

• This one is sort of beach related but we’re going on a snorkel cruise to Molokini

• Taking the infamous drive to Hana and swimming in the Seven Sacred Pools, we’re renting a convertible Mustang so it should be fun!

• Something we’re not doing but there are helicopter rides available, too!

We went on a cruise, and I loved it! I’ve always been a traveler so I thought I’d be disapointed not going somewhere new and exotic, but really all I wanted to do was relax. I felt like I didn’t have to do any planning, everything is right there for you and if you want you can do it, if not you just chill.

@Treejewel19: YES! Florida in May and June is unbearably hot and humid. I’m a native and I can’t stand living here from May through about mid-October.

We went to Hawaii last year and Kauai was by far my favorite island. So underdeveloped and beautiful, definitely would be my pick.

What about honeymooning in the Outer Banks? My friend spent a week on Hilton Head Island for hers and LOVED it. 

We are going (because of many, many airline miles donations) to Thailand for our honeymoon!

@Treejewel19: I’ve only been to the Outer Banks in the spring, but my friend honeymooned there last June and it was fine. Can’t be more humid than South Florida ๐Ÿ™‚
