We are really struggling for ideas for our honeymoon. I keep worrying because according to timelines, we’re past due to decide!
Anyway, we plan on staying in a local hotel after our reception for that night. We do know we want to go out of state and stay on the East Coast. We’d like to travel by train to get to our destination. And I’d like to stay near some place historical, hopefully in a B&B. But, we have no idea how to begin this process!
Anywa suggestions would be great! Thanks!

Where are you from? That would help determine how long a train would take, or if it would even be an option.

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and New York City are easily accessible by train and all have tons of activities as well as history. My personal choice would be DC especially since March is traditionally cherry blossom season.

We were considering DC, but as soon as some as FI’s family heard, they wanted us to stay with them and travel home with them after the wedding.

There are trains from Florida to Savannah, GA. Super historical, gorgeous, with B&Bs!

Savannah? Charleston? New Orleans? Williamsburg?
Don’t stress too much about the stupid timelines- March is off season, so you’re still in good shape. 🙂

Maybe Savannah? Or Charleston? Looks like the train line goes there from FL (I put in Jacksonville as a test) and 4 hours wouldn’t be too bad on the train.
@beachbride: NYC or Philly on the train would be brutal, IMO. Like 18-20 hours.

Amtrak. I wasn’t aware of any other trains LoL. Amtrak is what I take to my parents.
I would personally not book anything on the train longer than 8 hours. My mom takes my grandma to VA on the train and it’s 8 hours, and she HATES it. It’s like that episode of SATC…train travel is not super fun and romantic. I’ve heard horror stories about the one that goes from FL to NY.

@BetterSherm: Me and my future husband went to a place in Ohio called Hocking Hills. There are BEAUTIFUL cabins in secluded areas with hottubs on the back deck, fireplaces inside, and amazing caves and historial sites in the area. The caves and waterfalls are amazing and breath taking. its inexpensive and you can even pay for a personl chef to come to your cabin and either teach you how to cook while you drink wine, or he can cook a romantic dinner while you spend time with your husband. AMAZING!!

Cumberland Island off the coast of Georgia. You you can only get to the island by ferry, which leaves from St. Mary’s, GA (a 20 minute drive from Jacksonville). It’s not at all developed and is packed with history and wildlife, including wild horses that roam the beach. There is one inn on the island, or you can camp out on the beach.
