Vegas or New Orleans!  I have been to both and really enjoyed both!  

I have also been to Niagara Falls.  It’s kind of….eh.  It’s nice to go for a day trip, but I don’t think four or five days there would be too swell.

I’d pick Vegas… never been there, but I’ve always wanted to go!

I can’t speak for Orleans or Niagara, but Vegas is indeed fabulous and I would go there in a heartbeat. ๐Ÿ™‚

What about NYC? There is so much to do there. Or maybe somewhere out west where you guys could hike and camp- would he be into that?

If you love history and exploring, I think you can’t go wrong with New Orleans! There are so many great places to explore in and around the city. I don’t know if you guys are into cooking, but the last time I was there, we took a fun cooking class in the French Quarter that doubled as a great history lesson in the region’s interesting past: http://www.neworleansschoolofcooking.com/

I haven’t been to any of those, so I can’t help with a decision.  ๐Ÿ™  But … when Fiance and I were briefly considering a mini-moon, we talked about Maine, Cape Cod, or Nantucket.  It would probably be beautiful up there in September!  Just a thought!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Oooh, and if you do New Orleans, I’m not sure if you’d want to stay in town or nearby, but on the North Shore of the lake (about 25 miles across a causeway) is Fontainebleu State Park. It’s right on the lake with great hiking/walking trails and they have brand new cottages for rent relatively cheap. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I totally want to stay there next time: http://www.crt.state.la.us/Parks/fontaine/accomos/fontaccom.htm

Edit: Just now seeing you want to spend most of your time on foot based out of the hotel, so this idea doesn’t really fit that…but maybe for another time ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re also going the mini-moon route. We’re going to New Orleans! We’ve both been there once before and it’s awesome. NO has an atmosphere unlike anywhere I’ve ever been before. I never been to Vegas, but I’ve always wanted to go.

I love Vegas.  Never been to the other two places.  But Vegas is fabulous… nice pools, great food, and cheesy shows.  Plus tons of shopping!

If he’s not a beach or wine person what are you going to the Greek Isles for?  Drinking cheap wine and laying on the beach in Santorini was amazing!  I hope you still get to do those things while you are there.
