I lived in FL until I was 20 – IT IS HOTTTT in July!!! Hurricane season isn’t as prominent, it gets worse towards end of August/early Sept. (We had three hurricanes in Sept alone in 2004!)

The only time I’ve been to Vegas was early July in 2007(?) and being outside was miserable. I had a blast poolside during the day and at clubs inside at night, but in-between clubs I felt like I was melting.

I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I can’t speak for the weather there! But either that or the mountains sound beautiful!!

We did Honolulu, Hawaii in July and loved it. The weather was perfect (usually 80s to lower 90s, and barely any rain – if it did rain, it would blow over really quickly). Very relaxing, lots to see, and plenty of beach to just relax and enjoy your honeymoon.

We just came back from Hawaii and I would totally recommend Kauai instead of Honolulu. Soooo relaxing and so less “touristy” than Honolulu.  Just a warning though that it is VERY expensive there.  If you can swing it though I absolutely loved it!

If you’re looking for beaches that are not urban, steer clear of Oahu (with only very few exceptions).  Most of the places to stay in Maui are landscape-y and resort-y…Kauai and Big Island more authentic and rugged beachy.  Depends on what you enjoy.  There are also non-stops to Vancouver from Hawaii (Alaska Air?) to go straight to mountains, such as Whistler.  Also a 5.5 hr flight.  You could go home-Vegas-Hawaii-Vancouver-home.

We’re doing NYC for our mini-moon, not sure completely what we are going to do but we’ve never been there so I’m super excited to catch a show visit central park etc. We are meeting with a travel agent and checking out travel books to figure out where to go, but I’m getting super excited. Next year for our one year we are doing Vegas – but in May. I grew up in Arizona so the heat there is awful particularly late July early August. Fortunatley everything is air conditioned – but recognize you won’t want to be outside Florida in my opinion is worse cause you have the humidity (vegas is relatively dry) so it’s even harder to get cool – everything just feels sticky. But what’s most important is to figure out what you want for your honeymoon – beach, amusement parks, shows, etc. Then use that to decide where to go….

I say Hawaii!!! Vegas will be hot in July, but that’s why you stay inside or hang at the pool. It’s sooo much fun though 🙂
