My fiance and I don’t have a lot of time or money to spend to take a long honeymoon, but we still want to get away. We live in Louisville, KY and we were thinking of taking a trip to New Hampshire for a festival that he’s always wanted to attend, but it may be too much money. I’d like to go somewhere that’s not a tourist trap, but not too far away. Any suggestions for nice places that might be unique or different?

I suppose it depends on what type of honeymoon you’re looking for …. but what about Red River Gorge/Natural Bridge? It’s not far away, and I know there are private cabin rentals so you can do a romantic retreat? Maybe find one with an outdoor jacuzzi tub so you can soak under the stars? Obviously this would only work if you’re the outdoorsy types but the weather would be great in June and it really is a lovely place.

If you aren’t opposed to going to the beach, the islands in Georgia are amazing, cute, relaxing…I went to St Simons Island a few years ago with a family and it was so nice. Not touristy feeling

I say New Orleans but I am a little biased.

Door Co. Wisconsin is beautiful in the summer and has so many cute little artsy crafty towns. Makinak Island (I totally didn’t spell that right) Is beautiful too and they whole island doesn’t allow cars so you have to get around in horse and buggies or rent bikes. They have the best fudge in the world!

I recently took a trip to boston and really loved it. There are a bunch of tourists so I understand if its not your cup of tea. However, about 30 minutes north of boston is Salem. Such a cute town with a lot of its colonial charm and they have all the witch trial things. It can be touristy but not like big cities. I went 2 weeks before halloween and didnt think it was too bad tourist-wise. I expected worse. People spread out a lot.
There’s always getting a house in the mountains or something along those lines.

Door County is AMAZING! It’s my favorite place in the state, by far. It will be full of tourists in summer, but there also is a lot to do (hiking/biking in the national park, water sports, laying on the beach, check out Horseshoe Island, fish boils, outdoor movie theatre, lots of little shops, etc.) New Oreleans would be a fun getaway for a honeymoon–great food, great music, and tons to do. I’m partial to San Francisco, but that could get expensive (well, I guess anything could really). Good luck! (PS, SO and I loved Louisville when we went and I still dream about hot browns all the time )
