Okay! So we never got on the Honeymoon bandwagon cause I have been looking for a new job! Well i would rather have a new job then a honeymoon! But we have decided to plan one! If we have to cancel we will! I don’t want to go anywhere tropical cause that is just not us! My FI loves to Scuba Dive and well i don’t so I would rather just not go! We both want to go to Europe but for at least a week or more so now is not a good time! We have narrowed it down to going out west, Colorado, ect and go hiking and all the fun stuff or go back to Northern California and do everything we did not get to do a few months ago when we were there for me to run a marathon! Any other suggestions! We are thinking 4 or 5 days!

Thought about maybe touring Asia? My FI and I went to Japan and spent most of the time in Tokyo, then a couple of days around Hakone (where the hot springs are). We went after our college graduation. Lots of sight seeing. Some other areas of Japan, there will be hiking trails and such and you can go to visit historical temples, etc.
*Edit* Sorry I just re-read your post and noticed you wanted to stay within the states! (But check TravelZoo for deals, because sometimes there are REALLY great deals for going overseas.) I haven’t traveled to the other states but I live in California and there is a lot to do if you want to roadtrip through it.

If you’re looking for adventure why don’t you plan to go hiking in a national parks? Southern Utah (Arches, Zion, Bryce, etc) are amazing. In California Yosemite is great for backpacking and there are other good parks nearby. There’s tons of great ones.

My FI and I did a roadtrip through the Southwest a few years ago, and New Mexico and Utah were so, so beautiful. Arches National Park was spectacular. They have hiking, biking, and 4WD adventure stuff. Good luck!

You didn’t mention what season you want to go…..
If you’re looking at CO in winter, you’ve get your skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and skate skiing. Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash is one of a handful of places that you can cross-country ski in CO–it’s a beautiful ranch (it’s where Mrs. Cowboy Boot got married) and it’s about 20 minutes from Winter Park ski resort. 20 minutes in the other direction, is Sulphur Hot Springs (town name, and the main attraction). The west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is also about 20 minutes north (grab some snowshoes). Staying at the ranch is a bit spendy, but you can also find lodging in Winter Park. There’s also the Ouray ice climbing festival that takes play in Ouray, in southern CO, in January. Skiing and hot springs nearby there, too.
If you want to do CO in summer, you’ve got whitewater rafting nearly anywhere—though the white water is dependent on snowmelt, so highest in early summer. The arkansas river, around Buena Vista, is a very popular spot for kayaking and rafting. The collegiates (a group of 14’ers—mountains 14,000′ tall—are also very close by to that area. The Silverton train runs during the summer–it’s a tourist train, and can drop you off to hike 14’ers. Great Sand Dunes National Monument is down south in the Sange de Cristo range–cool. There’s a hot spring near there, called Valley View—anyone can go during the week, have to be a member to go on the weekend, clothing optional all the time. There’s also Mesa Verde and four corners for history. Moutain biking is great all over, too.
You could also do a hut trip—www.huts.org—summer or winter. Cabins that you hike/bike/ski/snowshoe into.
That should give you some ideas to get started on CO….

Our honeymoon was in Utah! We toured Bryce, Zion and Arches NP and all of them were amazing, we did a lot of hiking in each park. Each park also has overnight camping in each if you guys really want to be adventurous! We did some really difficult hikes in Zion, but the views from the top of the canyons are beyond words. For the fearless…there rock climbing in Zion too.
