I am not sure if we can even afford a honeymoon but just in case, I figured I would look around a little. That said, we are not beach people. Hot weather, yes but we are more sight seeing, historical locations, good food, touristy kind of folks. Love road trips etc.
Any thoughts on locations for a honeymoon? We are Canadian, willing to do a road trip in the USA or fly somewhere overseas. Europe is likely out because it’s just so expensive.

OOOhhh….Niagra Falls would be neat! Or maybe NYC? Washington DC is pretty neat as well!

Charleston, SC! (I’m biased), but it has everything you are looking for, good food, historical stuff out the wazoo, and hot weather.

@M.Ruder: Niagara Falls is out. Been there a bajillion times lol
ETA: I live in Ontario so I have always lived within 1-3 hours of the falls 🙂

New Orleans is super cool. Lots of walking, sight seeing and things to do. Tons of cool historical buildings in the French Quarter and outside of the city there are huge old plantations that you can tour.

How about New England trip. Rhode Island/Connecticut shoreline?

@plantains: Oh that would be nice and we aren’t that far from the border for that area.

Wine country! There’s a ton to do! (besides just wine tasting, of course!) There’s lots of cute B&B’s all over — and the Russian River Valley is gorgeous.

@ktisthatbees: im with you! charleston is so beautiful and romantic – its so full of history and there is tons to do down there – great food, great shopping, tons of tours and sightseeing. and if you feel crazy and up to going to the beach its only a few miles away. but im bias too – i got engaged down there and Darling Husband and i go every chance we get (its only a 3 hour drive from us)
another neat option would be costa rica – tropical and beaches but its also great for ecotourism – ziplining and volcanos- really neat!

New Mexico is really nice and you could do all the things you mentioned. It’s beautiful, unique, very historical, great for road trips, and has great food! It’s the most interesting place I’ve visited in the U.S.

I second NEw England. We actually did our honeymoon in Colorado – rented a house in Estes Park right outside the Rocky Mountain National Park! It was gorgous, relaxing (hot tub and fabulous kitchen!!), and a bargain (the whole house cost the same as a night in a nice hotel).

I’m with a few of the other girls, Charleston is absolutely gorgeous! Savannah, GA is also gorgeous with a ton of history & plenty to do.. Depending on how long of a trip you plan on taking those two cities aren’t very far apart, I think less than 2 hours.

New York? I’ve never been, but I think you can take a bus down (might be cheaper?) and find a decent hotel in NYC.
ETA – I’ve also been to GA, NC, and SC and would highly recommend them all!!! So beautiful!
