Check out the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It isn’t the easiest to get there from the closest airport but it is AMAZING. We stayed on Ocracoke, you have to take a ferry to get there and it is just such a nice island community. It is also the furthest so you can check out the rest of the Outer Banks if you don’t want to take a ferry. There’s some great house rentals, and nice hotels.

when is your honeymoon? If its in the summer when its warm, Boston is nice. The coast of Maine is beautiful in the summer. Saratoga, NY is nice and the racetrack (horses) opens at the end of july. Its busy and gets touristy at that time but its really nice and its near the Adirondack mountains with tons of lakes. Its also a few hours away from Boston and NYC so they aren’t too far. The Finger LAkes are also nearby and the wineries there are fantastic.

What are you looking to do? Do you want beach? Romance? Nature? Culture? City?

What type of experience are you looking for? Boston in September is beautiful and still warm… and you can also visit the Cape & Islands (Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket) 2 hours south or the southern coastal  Maine 2 hours north.

May is also a very pretty time to visit the Northeast. The flowers are blooming and everything is green 🙂

They are still nice then too. Its not very often that it snows that late in May or that early in September.

Yellowstone is AMAZING!  I’m not sure what exactly you are looking for for your honeymoon, but if you want a gorgeous place that affords lots of beautiful sites/hikes then check out Yellowstone.

Boston was a fun place to visit as well (I’m a west coast girl) but if you go there, be aware that it gets very hot and humid in the summer time.  Also the streets were designed for horse and carriages so they are very small and not very well signed.  My suggestion would be to get a hotel that is near to the subway system and skip getting a car.  Parking is also tough to find and expensive.

If you like wine I do suggest the Fingerlakes Region (I work in Ithaca) and the wineries are amazing and there are many romantic bed & breakfasts or hotels if you prefer. I’ve also been to Boston and it is awesome, highly recommended if you want to do more things (tours, shopping, restaurants etc). I went to La Jolla, CA a few years ago and it was a really wonderful place, worth checking out.

Are you trying to stay on the east coast?  If you are thinking september New england is a great place.  The weather should be lovely then, and you can also go up to Vermont/Maine for some fantastic views.

 

If you’re willing to go out a bit further west, I’d vote for Yellowstone (which is stunning) or the Grand Canyon.

I second Yellowstone!  Just the terrain and the animals.  In fact to entice you, here is a picture I took out there!
