California! It is a very beautiful state. I’m not a fan of the southern parts since I was born in LA and hated it. However, wine country and higher is simply  beautiful.

You should check out Mrs. Sprinkle’s posts about their B&B tour of Appliachia/Virginia. Looked really relaxing to me, without going crazy out-of-the-country!

Do you not want to fly far? Like Florida?

If you want to keep it kinda close, what about Colorado? I’ve never been, but I’ve heard its beautiful all year. Instead of a tropical honeymoon you can have a warm & snuggly one at a cute B & B 🙂

Hi! I’m actually in Spokane right now. We’re having a smiliar issue – no room in our wedding budget for a big honeymoon. We are thinking about doing a fun road trip, something my folks did when they were first married.

I’ve been around all of Washington, ID, MT, N and S Dakota, and so on. I’ve found some really cool parks and viewpoints that I’ve always wanted to show my fiance’. We are thinking of taking a week to travel together and stay in cute little B&B’s or motels, take touristy pics at funny landmarks, and eat at humble road-side diners together. We’re thinking of going to Silverwood theme park, Glacier Nat. Forest, and maybe Yellowstone. We’ll have LOTS of film in our camera and cash in our pockets and who knows where we’ll end up! Not too expensive, but well have memories that will last forever!

Go camping somewhere you haven’t been (Big Sur, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite?).  It’s the time of year now to start being able to make reservations for the big famous places for next summer/fall, so you might be in luck!

Canada!  When we lived in Helena, my husband and I took a weekend trip to Calgary and stayed at a really cute little B&B up there.  It was really fun and pretty cheap; I think the biggest expenses were gas and the room (I think we paid $50-$65/night?).

Finding B&Bs is a really great option, so I agree with the rest of the ladies. 🙂 Also, just towns that are sort-of near to big ones work well too! You can go, relax in the atmosphere, but not pay the price!

 

P.S. Wouldn’t this be considered small rather than huge? I was all thrown off by the thread title. Tongue out I know what you mean, of course, now. lol
