@Peacockfeather:  Why don’t you go to an adult/couples resort?  I have a friend that went with her husband for their honeymoon and loved it.  I think they went to Aruba, I can’t remember the name of the resort though.

If your original idea was to go to San Francisco you really don’t need a car there. I wouldn’t even want a car in a city like that- total pain. It is very easy to get around and see everything by using public transportation. Thats most the fun of a big city! I’m not sure what you mean when you say they are packed at Christmas when you are getting married in the summer. Do you mean you would postpone your honeymoon until winter?

December is definitely high season in the Southern Hemisphere. It really depends on where you want to go. I’d start by reading reviews on Tripadvisor that were written by travelers who were there around the same month you plan on going. Often they will write things like “too many families with children” or “too many tour groups from China” that will give you an idea of what to expect.

It won’t be warm in San Francisco in July…SF is perpetually about 55-65 degrees and foggy. I celebrated the 4th of July there one year and wore a down coat to watch fireworks. 🙂 

You should be able to rent a car at 23, I think they just charge you more…

You absolutely don’t need a car in San Francisco!

if you book a hotel in the city, it’s very easy to get around using taxis and public transport, or by walking,  and you can get to Napa or Sonoma on everything from bus tour group to private limo. There’s no reason for a tourist to have a car, and you’ll save $55/day by not parking it in the hotel.

seriously I can’t count the times I’ve been there and only gotten a car once, and pretty much regretted it. No point to it at all!

You actually don’t necessarily have to be 25 to rent a car – it just makes it easier (and cheaper).  There are plenty of places that will rent a car to people under 25, you just usually have to pay a fee.  I’ve rented plenty of cars under 25.

I second the no car idea. Go to a larger city Boston, DC, NYC, probably SF though I’ve never been there and it’s so nice to have public transportation. Or think about a cruise, maybe leaving from California. Not as hot in the Pacific and cruises are always about the same as far as crowds  go.

I’m not 25 and I’ve rented a car, you just have to pay more for insurance.  There will always be some reason not to go somehwere – just do it!  Whatever you love the idea for.  Other people are probably just trying to “help” by making you aware of possible detractors.
