Do an Oregon coast road trip?  That’s been on our to-do list for a couple years now.  It’s supposed to be gorgeous!

Oregon Coast is amazing! or jump on a plane to seattle and take a ferry ride to one of the islands out here. they are fantastic and you can find such cute little cabin to rent right on the ocean.

@MrsJules10: Oh yeah, Whidbey island (outside of Seattle) is pretty cool too.  Beautiful little bed and breakfast in a pretty sea-side town.

I’d suggest Vegas & the Grand Canyon, but it’ll be pretty hot in June. We went to Mt. Hood, OR one August for a jazzfest & it was really nice. Seattle could be nice as well. San Fran is one of my very favorite places & my next recommendation would’ve been Monterey… If you don’t mind dry heat, there is always Sedona, AZ for hiking and relaxing spa treatments?

@SapphireSun: I was stationed at Whidbey Island back when I was in the navy πŸ™‚ Great suggestion, the San Juan Islands are so romantic. I lived in Oak Harbor and Anacortes, lots of exploring, hiking, and overall great place for a couple!

I would also suggest the Oregon coast. It is amazing.

If you have your passport, Vancouver BC?

sedona is beautiful. lots of hiking and scenic drives and the mcdonalds there is rather amusing (its got terquise arches instead of gold) we got engaged there in august (peak heat seson for az) and it was not terribly hot. it was a little warm but nothing insane.

  • Oregon coast and/or Crater Lake
  • For that matter California northern coast – Avenue of the Giants, Redwood National Park, Mendocino, Eureka.
  • Yosemite and Sequoia National Park, California.  
  • Maybe a bit further then you want, but what about Yellowstone/Grand Tetons, Wyoming?  Absolutely GORGEOUS there!  πŸ™‚
  • Olympic Pennisula in Washington



I wish I knew where more of my pictures were, but unfortunately, these are the only ones I can find that I have online:



Crater Lake:




One tiny part of the Oregon Coastline:




Sequoia/Kings Canyon:
The next few are tiny, but give you an idea of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons (they are pictures I took of a scrapbook I put together from a loooong family trip!):

How about Catalina Island? It is about 25 miles off the coast of Southern California and has a very Mediterranean feel to it. You can take a fast boat, slow boat, or helicopter from the Long Beach area and it takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour to get there. There are little shops, restaurants, and really cute hotels, plus lots of options for hiking or snorkeling if thats your cup of tea. It’s definitely not a big place, but really relaxing and fun.

How about Santa Barbara?  It’s really beautiful and lots to do!

You’ve probably been there, but just thought I’d throw out Big Sur as a suggestion since it’s a pretty beautiful drive without having to do a full day down to Santa Barbara.  There’s a great resort up there called the Ventana Inn that’s very secluded and has a great spa.  Would be great for a relaxed, romantic honeymoon.
