@kate169: We had our honeymoon in Vegas just this past Labour Day weekend – and we had a BLAST!

have you ever been there? i’m not a gambler at all (and neither is FI) and i have to say, i don’t really love vegas. we were there for 3 days and we were both so ready to leave at the end. unfortunately we didn’t go to the grand canyon or hoover dam, which i probably wold have really liked, so that would help. i think some people are vegas people, and some people are not. i think you just have to figure out if you are or not. otherwise i’m sure you can get a good deal somewhere else. what kind of honeymoon are you envisioning? laying on a beach? going on an adventure? sightseeing? relaxing?

I thought I wouldn’t be a vegas person (not a gambler) but I have to say – I had a blast when I went with my parents/sister.  The hotel room was great (huge…we live in 500 sq feet so a huge hotel room was awesome).  The food was awesome, we saw Love (Cirque) which rocked, and went to Red Rock Canyon.  My FH has never been there and he’ll be stationed nearby before he deploys, so we might actually meet up there and have a mini-moon.  Spas, pools, good food.  And penny slots (which are fun).

It really depends on what you and your Fiance like to do. Although you may get a good deal on the hotel, the rest of the trip will be PRICEY if you want to have a good time. My Fiance and I love to go to shows but they run about $100 per person for each show, plus dinner, drinks, transportation, etc. It’s not as cheap as it seems. 

 

Also consider the huge crowds, tons of walking, dirty/grimy streets, and make sure you’re OK with those things for your honeymoon!

@sleepyrebel: so true. dinner, drinks, shows, etc are all really expensive. and those tours to the grand canyon were very pricey too. something to keep in mind.

yeah Vegas isn’t cheap other than staying there.  The trick is to eat off the strip (there are really good restaurants).  Rent a car and explore – the Liberace museum, there’s some weird nuclear bomb museum, red rocks, etc aren’t expensive. 

That said, if it isn’t your thing and you can’t afford to go anywhere, why not travel nearby?  You’re in NY, why not a long weekend in Boston or Philadelphia?  Or skiing in Vermont?  4 days of that can be just as great, a bit cheaper, and you never know what you’ll be able to explore!
