Your honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So where should you go? The United States offers plenty of venues for celebrating your love, from popular hotspots to hidden gems.
Here’s your guide to the five best honeymoon destinations in the U.S.
Hawaii may be the ultimate honeymoon destination. Imagine sharing an authentic luau with your love on Waikiki Beach or witnessing a surfing competition.
You have fewer fears about travel restrictions interrupting your plans than you do with other tropical destinations since you remain in the United States. You won’t even need a passport unless the rules change.
Head to Breckenridge, Colorado, if you love to ski and are an advanced skier. You’ll find some of the toughest double black diamond runs here.
However, you don’t have to live on the slopes to enjoy your honeymoon. Breckenridge is one of the most picturesque towns in America. You can find plenty of hiking or simply enjoy shopping along Main Street.
When you envision honeymoon destinations, your thoughts might not turn to the upper Midwest. However, you’re in luck if you love small-town charm — and varied climates. Cedar Rapids is known as the “City of Five Seasons,” with the fifth designating the perfect time to explore the other four. There’s something every time of year.
Do you like exploring your heritage? Check out the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library. You can also explore the African American Museum of Iowa beyond the 12th Street Bridge.
Who wouldn’t want to celebrate their new love inside a hot tub shaped like a champagne glass? You can do so if you book your honeymoon at the Cove Poconos Resort, nestled in the northeastern Pennsylvania countryside.
Spend your days hiking the beautiful surrounding hillsides. Are you hoping for something more relaxing? You’ll find no shortage of indulgent spa treatments, including couples massage.
If you like it hot without all the humidity of the tropics, why not head west to the stunning town of Sedona, Arizona? This location is a mecca for hikers, mountain bikers and spiritual sorts looking to test their skills to the limit — or meditate in a lotus pose at one of the red rock vortexes.
You’re only a hop, skip and jump from other destinations like the Grand Canyon and Walnut Canyon. Explore the Native cliff dwellings at Montezuma’s Castle or gaze at a bottomless watery pit at Montezuma’s Well.
You only get one honeymoon — why not make it extraordinary? Choosing the right destination increases your enjoyment.
Fortunately, you don’t need a passport to see some of the most scenic locations imaginable. Consider one of these honeymoon destinations in the U.S. and book a trip to remember.
