My fiance and I are really interested in a New England honeymoon….Boston, Vermont, New Husband, Maine….maybe CT and Rhode Island. We really did think about a tropical/beach honeymoon but decided it just really wasn’t our style. We are not big on organized tours, but would like to see some lighthouses, check out some historical sites, eat some great seafood, do a little shopping…that kind of stuff 🙂 We are both somewhat well traveled…have both been to parts of the Caribbean and areas of New England, but would love to take 10 days and just explore the region! Does anyone have any tips or points of interest that we shouldn’t miss? We are also really interested in standup or improv comedy, or possibly a riverboat ride? Thanks for any suggestions!

If you’re going to Boston, definitely walk the Freedom Trail, and stop at Mike’s Pastries in the North End for the best cannoli you’ll ever have in your life!
I love Kennebunkport, Maine and Newport, Rhode Island for two gorgeous seaside towns. Cape Cod is not to be missed if you’ve got the time (The Vineyard, Chatham, and Provincetown are my favorite spots)!

Check out Bear Mountain in Bethlehem New Husband. It’s a very intimate Bed and Breakfast that we absolutely love! Also the White Mountains are fun to explore as well!

@futuremrsgwt: What month will you be traveling to the New England area? I personally love Cape Cod (specifically Provincetown) however if you go in May, the town is very empty and has sort of a sleepy feel to it. The good thing about this is that it almost feels like the town is yours. Also, it’s a little chilly during that time. What I love about the area includes the seafood, whalewatching, lighthouses, and beautiful beaches.

I HIGHLY suggest Newport, RI! It is absolutely beautiful, there are lots of things to see, delicious food, it’s just beautiful. You can remain very self-sufficient, lots of things to do on your own. For places to stay, my Fiance proposed while we were staying at Castle Hill Inn, which I definitely recommend. We stayed in a beach-side cottage that would be perfect for a honeymoon! They even have a small lighthouse on the property. In Newport, you can self-tour the mansions, walk down Thames Street near the water where there are tons of shops and AMAZING food. You could also take the ferry to Block Island, which is a very fun day trip type of place. I can’t really imagine spending more than a day on Block Island though. There are also a lot of wonderful wineries along the Coastal Wine Trail.
Burlington, VT is another place I loved visiting. I went in the late fall/winter, though. Bar Harbor, ME is lovely. And of course Boston is Boston! Funny, I’m from CT and I can’t really think of anywhere here that is actually worth traveling to see. That’s awful! Lol, but maybe it’s because I’m from here. Although Mystic, CT is a quaint, fun town to visit! I know the shoreline isn’t doing too well right now because of the storm, though 🙁

What a great idea for a Honeymoon! My parents actually went to Cape Code on theirs 43 years ago. I took my mom on a girl’s trip right after I got engaged to Newport, RI and Stonington, CT and we found both places to be beautiful, charming, and great food and fun.
In Newport we stayed at the Red Cottage at 41 North and it was really great and could be super-romantic. In Stonington we stayed at the Inn at Stonington and it was very charming. All rooms have a working fireplace and jacuzzi tub and I really want to take my fiancee there someday for a romantic trip.
