My fiance and I ha originally planned to honeymoon in the Greek Islands but because his residency is going to be getting adjusted at that time (I’m marrying and Australian), we can’t leave the USA for a few months. We’ve decided to do a small honeymoon in the United States after the wedding and save Greece for next year.
Can anybody suggest a great honeymoon spot in the US?? (we’re avoiding incredibly expensive places like Hawaii since we’re still going to Greece next.. more looking for somewhere in the $3000s for a week)– We’re open to all suggestions!

Are you looking for mountains? Beach? Desert?

@stephinPA: We’re really open on that, we just want somewhere beautiful that we can relax and enjoy each other’s company

I guess it would depend on what types of things you guys are interested in. Do you want to go to the beach? We are planning our honeymoon in the US, but we like to hike and horseback ride and outdoorsy things. So we are planning our honeymoon in Montana, so we can enjoy nature. I live in Florida and the beaches are gorgeous here. I think people can make some suggestions if you give us ideas of what you’d like to do for your honeymoon. Grand Canyon is nice or the spas in Scottsdale.

Colorado is beautiful, the AZ desert is as well. If you’re looking a city to visit, Charleston, SC and/or Savannah, GA are incredible. Charming, historical, and beautiful. The cool thing about Charleston is some of the SC beaches are not too far at all!
San Diego is beautiful, there’s Lake Tahoe, Vegas!

California – Napa Valley, San Fransisco, Lake Tahoe
Georgia – there are islands off of the coast
There is some other place on the east coast by Massachusetts that I can’t think of.

We’re going to Savannah for our honeymoon. We were also considering going to Bar Harbor and might later this year, maybe in the early fall. We also were considering going to Boston. We’ve been there before and absolutely loved it and there’s so much to do there. I’ll also throw in a good word for Charleston. If you go there you can stay downtown or stay in Isle of Palms which is about a twenty minute drive so you have more of a beach atmosphere but can easily travel into downtown.

We’re going to Key West, FL. You should definitely check it out.

We went to Estes Park, Colorado for our honeymoon, and it was gorgeous! We rented a house (cheaper than a nice hotel!) adjacent to the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was so romantic – we had a fireplace, our own big hot tub, a big kitchen to make fancy food in, a wraparound porch with panoramic mountain views to drink a glass of wine on.
It was awesome.

Martha’s Vineyard or Cape Ann…if you’re looking for a place more secluded though, they may not be your best bets at that time of year.

My FI and I are planning on renting a house on the beach near Charleston, SC. We want to be right on the beach, but close enough to town to do some of the historical things. Another good option is renting a cabin in the Smoky Mountains. I know several people that have done that, and it sounds very romantic!

We are renting a cabin in the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN. We love the outdoors, so it will be great for us!

We went to Las Vegas, its my favorite place to go. We live in Indiana and the entire trip when we go for a week costs about $2800-$3000 and that includes $200/day in gambling money. The great thing about Vegas is that it can be any kind of vacation you want it to be. You can get a nice suite and relax together, you can go out and see the attractions, if you like the clubbing/party atmosphere you can do that. The nature part of it would be taking a short trip to Red Rock Canyon or even a daytrip to the Grand Canyon. You can stay in a hotel with an extravagant pool area with tropical trees and plants, or even sand and have the beachy honeymoon. So many options!
