Hmm, it’s a tie between Rhode Island, P.E.I and Hawaii if I had extra travel time ๐Ÿ™‚

If I were going on a minimoon, I’d stay in a treehouse resort. But that may just be me, haha. Cities or beaches would be cool too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also agree with Rhode Island, go to Jamestown and take day trips throughout the state.

Where are you from? I agree w/ MissAanB–minimize your travelling time. It also depends on the season and if you want a sort of snowy getaway or tropical getaway, and on whether you want something more relaxed or to visit a city. I’d think of some of my hobbies and do stuff from there–so if you like nature, visit a national park. If you like culture, a big city. If you like relaxing, a cozy B&B or spa. Here are some ideas for things I think would make a great minimoon:

W. COAST: go to San Francisco. Spend 2 days in the city and 1 day driving up to Napa/Sonoma and seeing wine country. Alternatively, you can drive south and visit all the sleepy California towns along the cost–gorgeous. Other ideas: Las Vegas, Baja, Grand Canyon/Yellowstone/Yosemite, Santa Fe, Seattle, Joshua Tree/Palm Springs,

E. COAST: Personally, I’d go to Niagra because I’m a Marilyn Monroe fan and love the retro aspect of it, but Montreal is a short plane ride from most east coast cities and it’s like being in Europe. 3 days is perfect for taking in the city. But you really don’t want to go there in the winter! Other ideas: Vermont/Maine, Rhode Island Newport, NYC, Adironacks or Pocanos, Boston, Cape cod/Nantucket/M’s Vineyard, Berkshires

MID-ATLANTIC/SOUTH: My beau and I want to do a road trip through the South, but I was so enchanted by Savannah. I love your idea of Harry Potter too. Other ideas: Keowah Island, Charleston, a million gulf coast towns, Florida Keys, Miami, N. Orleans, Graceland/Nashville, Ozarks, Charleston

MIDWEST: I’m not so good with the midwest, but lived in Chicago and let me tell you that city is the best. Wonderful for visitors, beautiful, fun. You could also go retro and do Mt. Rushmore or look into getting a cabin or something along the many resorts dotting the Great Lakes.

From VA where you live, I think there are lots of options!

Anywhere in New England – Newport, RI; Boston, MA, mid-coast or lower coast Maine, Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard even NYC would be close

Carribean locations – Aruba, St. Kitts, St. Lucia

Florida Keys

I would stay on the east coast to maximize your 3 days.  And I would also be more inclined to do the Carribean or Keys if you’re willing to pay for a flight.

Western coast. Anywhere is good along the coastline, really. SF, though, smells like urine and fish in some parts. People just pee in some of the streets so, you may come across a strong urine smell. And the piers smell like dirty fish. SF is worth seeing I suppose but it’s really kinda nastay! Being from Reno, I would never go to Vegas for any reason! It’s tacky like here but worse. If you like smoke-filled casinos with no windows..there you go. Reno/Vegas are so tacky and tourist-y. I can honestly say that I hate this town for so many reasons and I hope we move the heck outta here one day! Lake Tahoe is nice, I can say that much. Napa is nice, just don’t stay in Napa the town unless you want a B&B by walmart or somethin. Stay in a town nearby, just not in the actual town of Napa. Just my two-cents!

My close friends are going to Florida for their honeymoon! Specifically to go to Disney and Universal Studios……to see Harry Potter. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sounds like fun to me. They actually asked us to join them the last few days to go to universal studios with them.

We’re doing a 3 day mini-moon to DC!!  Any major city would be fun because there’s always more than enough to do, but you don’t have to spend a ton of money or feel like you HAVE to rush around to see stuff since you’re there. ๐Ÿ™‚
