You have to go to Destin! Hands down. And, it is doable to do the whole Orlando/Disney thing for a couple of days…but remember that it is tourist season right now so it is very crowded. But if you’ve never been, you definitely should go. When you say a week, do you mean 7 full days? Because then you’d have 4 or 5 days in Destin after Orlando. That would be perfect. And it would start your honeymoon off fun, and then end it with romance!

I’m currently in south florida, atlantic ocean side and alot of people to the orlando disney deal:) Renting a car and spending some time at the coast would be awesome. Most any small resort town you pull into has great deals, we do it alot just for day trips. 

I recommend some of the southern islands on the western side of Florida

Also they have a few dude type ranches in central florida that are super nice- if your up for something other than the typical beach honey moon- it would be a blast!! (and still warm and sunny 😉

@MissMargie: I would say its about a 5 or 6 hour drive from Orlando. So, it’s pretty far…but all of the beaches in Northern Florida are. And I would say its both family and singles, but if you stay in Sandestin it is more away from the hustle and bustle- and more romantic. Here is an example of a romantic night in Sandestin: http://www.sandestin.com/ExploreSandestin/CurrentPackages/Romance.aspx

Sanibel Island or Destin by bar would be my pick!

I’m all about the ocean side of florida.  Gulf, not so hot on.  Just a personal preference.  

Key West is stunning, romantic – and the sunrise and sunsets…can’t beat them anywhere in this country.  

Best Honeymoon Options: old west indies feel with historic inns, fun things to do, walking distance to alot.  

Nice spots:

Also, we love it becuase you can take a boat and visit one of the most beautiful national parks: Dry Tortugas.  It literally looks deserted.
