Hello fellow Bees!
So Fiance and I are having trouble figuring out where to go to for our honeymoon. While we would love to go to Hawaii, Bahamas, or Jamacia our budget just can’t handle that type of expenditure. Also staying the states is basically a must since neither of us have up to date passports and don’t want to hassle with getting new ones.
We are thinking along the lines of Floridia (maybe the Keys?) or Vegas. Anyone have any suggestions of where we can stay, or a completely different destination that we can head to that won’t completly break our bank? Our wedding is in May and we are planning on honeymooning May 14th-19th.
Any suggestions are appreciated!

My Fiance and I are in the same boat. We live in Washington and our plan is to go on a mini-moon until he’s settles into the Air Force, then go somewhere extravegant later on down the road. Unfortunately we can’t go anywhere tropical or humid…the Fiance hates hot weather
Are you set on somewhere warm? If not, then western Washington is gorgeous and here in eastern Washington we are surrounded by beautiful lakes. Northern Idaho is wonderful too, and there are plenty of affordable resorts to choose from. The water doesnt usually start getting warm here until around June though.
If you are looking for someplace warm, the wine country in California is always a good choice.
I’ve never been to Florida or the Keys but my Fiance has and he says its really fun down there. Vegas was fun, but a little too crowded for me. I’ve never been past Utah state so I’m not too sure what lies yonder on the east coast.

I’m going to New Symrna Beach, FL for our Honeymoon. My Mom has a timeshare down there (you can probably browse around and find a timeshare to rent for a week – they’re perfect because they have a full kitchen so you can save money by eating in some nights). I’m excited because it’s not a huge town so we’ll get some peace and quiet, but we’ll also have the pool, a beautiful beach, and be only 20 minutes from Daytona and an hour and a half from Orlando (I plan on dragging him to Disney for a day).
If you guys want a little more excitement there’s plenty of other places in FL you can go, the Keys are definitely a good choice. I personally love FL – it’s the perfect place to visit for a week or two when the weather is good and their beaches are amazing. I’ve been to Vegas twice and while I do enjoy it, I don’t think of it as a particularly romantic place to go.

consider Santa Barbara, CA for the wine and the beach and the food without a bunch of tourists like Napa. Or maybe Napa b/c then you can go to San Francisco.

If you are interested in a tropical feel without the price tag, check out the Panhandle of FL (pensacola area).
white sand beaches (even with condos and houses to rent out)
wilderness (zip-line, canoe, tubing, hiking)
