How long are you planning on Honeymooning?  Do you think you will get a car and drive to different places, or would you want to get a plane ticket and explore one place in particular?

Depends on how far you want to travel and whether or not you plan to travel by plane or car.

The Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains are not terribly far (driving) from Nashville. There are a lot of options for cabin rentals, hikes, sightseeing.

We spent our honeymoon in Asheville NC, which is also neat because there are a number of restaurants and stuff to do in town.

The Chattanooga Aquarium is really nice if you want to stay in TN. If you don’t mind caves, Ruby Falls is also pretty cool.

Here’s a list of attractions in Nashville: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g55229-Activities-Nashville_Tennessee.html

It’s a big city, so there’s a lot to do and see! #30 on that list – the murder mystery – sounds really fun. My mom, aunt, and siblings went to one in Chattanooga and they had a blast.

I was going to suggest the Smoky Mountains too. Another choice would be Northern California–SFO and everything in a 2 hour radius is fabulous!

I agree! I’ve vacationed in a cabin in the Smoky mountains in the Gatliburg area, and it’s really romantic. It’s a cute little touristy town, with tons of cabins/chalets close by. You get a beautiful wooded setting in the mountain with lots of quiet and privacy, and during the day you can have your pick of what you want to do – go into town and do touristy things, go into the National park, or just chill out in the cabin. It’s a pretty great deal for your money, considering you’re getting an entire house to yourself (and many of them have hot tubs!). Here’s one site where you can search for cabins: http://www.gatlinburg.com/lodging/chaletscabins.aspx

You could do Newport, RI and Boston- spend a couple of days in each place!

I was going to say the Appalachain Mountains(the range that includes the great smokey and blue ridge subranges).. but previous posters beat me to it! lol

If you haven’t been to Disney.. that could be a cool trip.

I guess I’d want to know more of what type of trip you want. You can go big city vacation, mountains, lakes, oceans, dude ranches, cute colonial towns, go out west and sight see (hoover dam, grand canyon, etc)… the list is endless!

@Bchilders:  Darling Husband and I visited Nashville in May of this year and the weather was just beautiful. If you are interested in US history at all, the area is very good for that. I would also 2nd the Chattanooga suggestion. Beautiful city with a lot to do.

We are getting married in may and going to Atlantic City, NJ for a week. So much at your fingertips there!  Luxurious hotels, spas, shopping,nightlife, gambling, the ocean and it’s not too far for us to make a trip up to Six Flags New Jersery for a day.  Yup, we’re big kids!

What do you like to do on vacation?  That might help narrow things down — there are so many great, different places to explore in the US.

If you haven’t been to the Grand Canyon or Disney World, I’d choose those.

Since I’ve been both places, should we decide to stay in the US for our honeymoon, we’re going to go to Hawaii or maybe a cruise in Alaska or maybe even Washington, DC. I really really really want to spend a week just at the Smithsonian and then I want to see all of the other historical monuments.

@Bchilders:  My Fiance and I are in the same boat!  We want to stay in the US and we’re not beach people.  We’re planning on spending a few days at Yosemite park (either camping or doing a bed and breakfast), and a few days in San Francisco.
