Anyone looking for a wintery destination for their honeymoon? I am getting married in December and honeymooning in January and want to head somewhere cold, except I’m finding that I can’t afford any of the skiing places in January as it’s peak season 🙁 Anyone have any suggestions?
We may just resort to renting a cabin in Northern Arizona to save some money, but I guess I pictured my honeymoon as more of a trip than that.

You want something cold? Come to Boston! 🙂 But seriously — come to Boston and you can do a few days in the city, though it’s chilly – it’s so pretty in the winter! Then you could head up to some of the mountains in Maine/NH/Vermont to ski — there are SO many options around here. Now it’s definitely not mid-west or west coast skiing, but it’s still really really fun. You can stay in cute bed and breakfast or my favorite – taht would be great for a honeymoon – is the Mt. Washington Hotel in New Husband … if you’re okay with being cold on your honeymoon, Boston is for sure a great option.
PM me if you want more info!!
Also, I dont know as much about it, but have you looked into Coeur d’Alene (sp??) Idaho? I think that might be pretty pricey, but I’ve also heard that is a beautiful winter town.

We just got back from Jackson Hole, WY for vacation, and it was amazing! We had 8 people on the trip, and I think it cost about $10,000, so for 2 it shouldn’t be terible. It was a GREAT trip! We went skiing, tubing at night, snowmobling through Yellowstone (where he proposed!), and on a sleigh ride through the elk reserve. It’s a tourist town, so some things were high (the $1 menu at Wendy’s was $1.69!), but we stayed at a little place with a kitchen and saved money by cooking most nights. It was nice to cook, cause some of that stuff wears you out! I would definitely recommend it!

What about Northern New Mexico like Taos, Angel Fire, Red River, Santa Fe, etc. It’s right next door and will most likely be somewhat affordable since it’s not a giant top destiniation like Colorado. There’s alwasy snow up there in the winter, too, and skiing if you so desire! Just an idea!
