    Why don’y you try a domestic beach somewhere, like Key West? Way less expensive than the Caribbean, but still relaxing and more typical honeymoon. There are some other nice beaches in Florida too, like Fort Lauderdale, Miami, etc. Or you could go to Maine or something, won’t be as hot and you may not swim as much, but there are some breathtaking beaches there too. NC/SC are also good options.

    I think Vegas is great for a honeymoon too, but it’s more of an active honeymoon (going out to casinos, dancing, etc) than a beach type. Personally I wanted to relax after the wedding, but I think Vegas could be fun too!

    We did a honeymoon in Vegas and it was plenty romantic. ANYWHERE can be romantic, seriously. There are SO MANY amazing restaurants there and we got so many free drinks and desserts just by mentioning it was our honeymoon. Our room (at the Aria) was upgraded for free as well. We also did some room service and indulged in quite a few couples spa treatments. The shows are fun to go to, we went to the adults only Cirque show, it’s topless and quite sexual, great honeymoon material. It doesn’t have to be all GO GO GO, Vegas can be relaxing too!

    While I understand your disappointment, I also agree with him that a house should come first. Vegas is a perfectly fine place to go for a honeymoon, there are plenty of other bees who have gone there. Seeing as how neither of you have been it sounds like a great place to go. There are tons of yummy places to eat and you can stay at a more relaxing hotel (less of a party hotel) and lounge by their fabulous pools all day long.

    It could be fun depending on what you like to do as a couple, but also EXPENSIVE. For the money, if it were me, I’d head to California wine country / bay area, like Sonoma or SF. I’m just not the raging/clubbing/out all night type, at all, so Vegas for a honeymoon would definitely turn me off.

    You could also head to San Diego or Carmel for a beach honeymoon and not have to head further south!

    We honeymooned in Vegas. It can absolutely be romantic. Our decision was sort of made for us, as our close friends were getting married there. It was not really feasible for us to take two vacations so close together. I really enjoyed our time.

    I dont see why it couldn’t be romantic. Honestly any place can be made into a romantic trip. You don’t have to have a “beach” honeymoon to make it special. Darling Husband & I went to Seattle for our honeymoon.  We had fun and had plenty of romance there.

    Honestly, it’s cheap to get to Vegas for a reason……it’s expensive there (casinos and such) and if you aren’t a gambler or don’t like to see shows, it’s pretty boring there.

    I think it would be a lot of fun and romantic. But if you’re looking for beach and he’s looking for a night life what about a cruise? You can get both and they are relatively cheap. Either way though vegas would be tons of fun. But this needs to be a comprimise, not what you want and not what he wants but what you want together.

    If you stay on the strip yea its easy to get around. If you want to go off the strip I would want to rent a car either for the day or a couple days. You could take a drive to Mt. Charleston or Red Rock if youre into hiking and beautiful scenery and pictures too. Lake Mead isnt far away for a day at the lake too. Lake Las Vegas is gorgeous as well. Also not far away. I wouldnt rely on public transportation for anything other than the 2 story bus ride on the strip thats fun for tourists. Hmmmm what else. Lots of shows. Restaurants. Plenty to do that the tourists dont know about only the locals. Golden Nugget down down has the coolest pool. Mandalay Bay is the best one on the strip by far. Hope that helps. If you want my email Ill give it to you.
