Hello Hive. We are tying the knot next May 21, 2011. We want to go on a honeymoon but not sure where to begin. I just want somethign beautiful and relaxing. I don’t really care where. FI on the other hand would Ideally be on a 7 day hunting adventure. I’d like to go somewhere that we both can enjoy. I wouldn’t mind doing a little hunting or fishing for a day or 2 but I’d also like to have a beautiful place to relax for the other days. I’m thinking cabin in the mountains somewhere. But most places I’ve found don’t ofer any type of hunting days. Any of you bees have any Ideas for a Honeymoon for and outdoorsy couple who want to get away!!?!?!?

I know its not exotic or anything, but you could always rent a cabin in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area of Tennessee. It is in the Smoky Mountains and is beautiful there. We take our family vacation there every year and there are so many nice cabins to choose from. Some even have indoor pools and most have hot tubs. Let me know if you need more information.

Well, this may be a little far out there…but, there is a fellow bee on here…can’t remember her name (sorry) that is going to South Africa for her honeymoon and staying in a pretty nice looking resort…you could do that combined with a safari of some sort. My boss’ family went on a safari several years ago and LOVED it. That would be a bit pricey though.
I’m not a big hunter, but I grew up in a HUGE hunting town, and I don’t remember anything being in season during May, but I’m 60% clueless on that subject. It seems if you wanted to do any time of hunting, you would have to go to a game reserve of some sort. I know in my hometown there is one of those types of places (I think) and I grew up in the mountains. lol If you want more info, PM me and I’ll tell you all about it.
One thing I’m dying to try is the “luxury camping” in St. John, V.I. To me, it’s the best of so many worlds, affordable, in the Caribbean, and luxury camping…How cool is that?

Colorado! The higher in elevation you go the later the wildflower season is, though. May might be chilly. And I think hunting season is later (FI is planning to go in October). Fly into Denver, but head west past the Front Range for the best places that aren’t overrun with tourists.

Ah; great Ideas ladies. Thank you! I would actually love to go on a safarri… but like you said it might be pretty pricey. But it will be worth looking into! I’ll have to check into the mountain seetings in Tennesee & Colorado. We actually have friends honeymooning in Colorado; so hopefully they can give us some pointers!
