If you are planning on going right after your wedding (July), I’d stay away from New England. It is super hot and humid in New England in July and has been increasingly hotter the past few years. 

I’m not really familiar with these areas but I think they maybe cooler… but somewhere like Colorado, Portland, or Seattle?

Are you going right after your wedding? You could wait a few months and go skiing somewhere!

@Krises:  Just wanted to say that Colorado is blazing hot in July.  This year especially it has been 90s or above almost every day this month (and I live in northern Colorado).  Northern Wyoming/Montana might be a better bet.  We went camping in Yellowstone in the middle of June and it snowed… so yeah, it’s a bit cooler there.

@MrsKaySea:  That’s a great idea!  Skiing is so fun.


My vote would be for Alaska.  I went there last year to visit a friend and it was absolutely gorgeous!  It is pricey though especially during the summer months.

Alaska cruises are not outrageous in price. You can get one week cruises out of Seattle or Vancouver right now for $799 and up depending on the location of the cabin. Remember when you choose a cruise it is simlar to an all inclusive- room amd meals included. You wouldn’t get a hotel room and 3 meals a day for that price.

Some cruise lines , like Holland America for example also allow you to bring on your own wine.

Look at http://www.cruisecritic.com and read the forums. You will get lots of great ideas. For booking, also check http://www.vacatiopnsto go.com.

If you are willing to gamble, prices will come down, go up again 2-3 months out from your cruise date, then come down as they get closer and cabins are unsold.

I lived in Cody WY last summer. It was cool (70-80) but still very sunny. If its just the heat that bothers you, I would reccommend northwest WY climate-wise. We drove up to the top of the beartooth mountains and there was close to a 30 degree change in temperature from the lowest elevation to the highest. But, I pretty sure you’re more likely to get sunburnt at high elevations. I was doing an internship so I didn’t explore too much, but there are some outdoorsy (hiking, climbing, scenic drives, biking trails, walking trails ect.) activities.

Have you considered Iceland? From Ontario it shouldn’t be too long a flight. You should be fine sun-wise and I don’t think you have to worry about sweating a lot. It is not too expensive and most people are fluent in English, so it should be easy to get around.

@smcs28:  If its just sun exposure then I’m not sure that would be the best place for you. It was definitely sunny like 90% of the time.

My fiance and I are going to Iceland for our honeymoon. We went there last spring and just fell in love with the country, the people, everything! There is so much to do and the weather is similar to spring in Ontario. From Toronto it’s 5.5 hour flight. I definitely recommend it!!
