So Fiance doesn’t want to go to the beach and our Alaskan cruise plans stopped when I found NO cruise lines go to Alaska past like 10/9.
I’m now looking for honeymoons in states that are fun, have things to do, and nice weather.
Vegas is out, he’s not a gambler. We were thinking Bar Harbor Maine (we can save $ and drive up there, therefore upgrading to a suite) but a coworker told me most of Bar Harbor restaurants, shops etc will be closed then and the weather might be really cold.
I’m SO stressed. I just want to lay on a beach and snorkel but Fiance wants something else (not sure of what) but he’s a cheap a$$ so doesn’t want to spend a lot of money. I’m super upset b/c you only go on your honeymoon once and I want to make it memorable and enjoyable for both of us.

Wow, I think your Fiance and mine are long-lost soul mates. Only mine also hates everything in California, just because it’s California.

@Sage- If Fiance had his way we would go on a snowmobiling honeymoon, only catch is I DONT SNOWMOBILE! He totally wants snow etc, which I said NO right away. I don’t mind visiting Canada but I’m not going to compete with snowmobiling. I can just see myself sitting alone all day reading while he is out on the sled, no fun at all.

There are so many great places in the States! Florida (Miami, Keys), California (anywhere!) – what about New Orleans? You could pop down for a few days and even go on a cruise in the middle of the trip!
What do you two like to do? Eat out and party? NOLA or Miami would fit (and you can get in days in the sun in Florida!) Do you like being outdoors? California! And don’t discount going out of the country unless there is a real reason for you not to – check sites like cheapcaribbean.com for some really great deals.

What about going to Yellowstone? A friend of mine just got married in November, and while they did fly into and hang out in San Francisco for a bit, the bulk of their honeymoon was spent in Yellowstone exploring.

Think about leaving the country. There are some really great deals on cruises right now. When we wer at our travel agent’s office 2 weeks ago she said you can do the carribean for about $100 per person per day. We opted for an all inclusive instead because we wanted to stay in one place but a cruise would let you have activities and do things beyond just sitting in the sun. Alternatively, I would second the recommendation of Miami/FL keys. You can even rent a car in Miami then drive down through the keys it’s about 4 hours to Key West from Miami and there are great beaches along the drive to stop and have lunch.

there’s lots of places that would make good honeymoon locations in the states. California – San Francisco, Napa. Florida. Chicago. Colorado – spend the time together for the most part, but if he wants to go out snow mobiling, you could hit up some of the spas. Sedona, AZ or Flagstaff (Grand Canyon). Seattle.

I would go to either San Juan Islands in Washington- that place is like heaven to me! Or Estes Park in Colorado- the elk are usually very visible in October and the leaves will be changing.

We are going to Napa and also spending a couple of days in San Francisco!

I think it would be super romantic to do a road-trip! You could take a few weeks and drive across the country and see all kinds of beautiful things across the country.

Oh oh oh! Santa Fe NM is beautiful and romantic in a colorful, deserty way. Ashville NC is a great mountain city with lots of art, music and outdoor activities.
Of course, there is always Vermont, which is beautiful in the fall, especially in a romantic bed and breakfast tucked away in the hills. Plus Montpelier and Burlington have lots of nice restaurants and things to do.
My Fiance and I are planning to drive up the west coast, San Fransisco to Seattle for our honeymoon. I’ve heard its a great trip.

Well, could you postpone your honeymoon til next spring? We’re getting married in August but putting off our honeymoon til the following May cause a) the weather will be better b) we’ll have more time c) we have to move right after the wedding.

what about arizona? fi and i took a trip there when we wanted warm weather, but not a beach and it was fantastic! we rented a car and drove through most of the state, pheonix, flagstaff, sedona, tuscon, grand canyon, scottsdale. every place was different and it was a good mix of sight seeing, outdoors/active stuff and relaxation. we both loved it!
