What about Cape Cod or Newport? You could drive there easily after your wedding, so you wouldn’t lose time travelling to a third place.  There are also a ton of beautiful inns and b&bs on the Maine coast.  Or you could rent a cottage on Long Island Sound (my family used to spend summers in Old Saybrook and Niantic, and we always loved it!).

I love Key West. You get all the benefits of going to the Caribbean without leaving America.

We went to the Poconos to go snowboarding and then to Hershey, PA, and Philadelphia, PA. We had an amazing time. We went hiking and horseback riding in the mountains, designed our own candy bars at Hershey, and saw amazing historic landmarks and Eastern State Penitentiary in Phily. We also ate some of the most amazing food ever.

I think it would be cool to do a midwest tour and visit, Deadwood, SD, Mount Rushmore, The Grand Canyon and Yosemite or some variation of that.

I vote for Grand Haven, Traverse City, or Harbor Springs in Michigan.  It might be a bit out of the way but the western side of the state is beautiful and Lake Michigan is just like the ocean but without the icky salt and threat of jellyfish.  There are lots of bed and breakfasts in both places and some really nice resorts/hotels if you want something more fancy.

I am with RunsWithBears.  The western/northern coast of the lower penisula in Michigan is GORGEOUS.  You can go to the beach, wine/vodka tours, shop, etc.  They are so many quaint little towns that you could get lost in, or bigger ones (not BIG by any means), with tons of different fun things to do!

You could also do Niagara Falls…

I had friends who took their mini moon in Philly and they had a blast

@Jenlon:  As a fellow WNY-er, I am surprised that you are mentioning Niagara Falls. I would probably only recommend the Canadian side. I like the view way better, and I love doing a little trip up to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Or maybe I just need to figure out some great things about our US side!


I woul suggest Florida, just because I love the beaches there.

I would like to recommend Louisville, KY, which is my hometown. There are great restaurants and bars and arts. Wonderful museums and horse racing!

DC is a fun area for a mini-moon. There’s no shortage of things to do and places to stay.

We considered Savannah, Cumberland Island, and Jekyl Island in Georgia for a long time- it looks relaxed and fun.
