Getaway in the States
Your honeymoon is the chance for you and your partner to escape your hometown and enjoy your marriage bliss somewhere new and exciting. But who said you had to leave the country to go on a honeymoon? There are so many beautiful honeymoon destinations in the US, and there are plenty of sights for all types of couples, so whether you’re looking for a relaxing or adventurous honeymoon, you’re sure to find a perfect fit in the 50 states.
If you’re a tropical, beach-loving couple, there are many beach destinations for your honeymoon in the US. Of course, the most obvious choice would be Hawaii. The island life is just a plane ride from LAX. You can go the all-inclusive resort route or save some money and rent an Airbnb. Hawaii is a gorgeous honeymoon destination that will have you saying Aloha.
Florida is full of stunning beaches and beautiful blue waters. The Gulf of Mexico is home to some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. You can spend your days relaxing on the beach, working on your tan or collecting seashells. There are so many things for you to do at the beach. Key West is another beach honeymoon destination that gives you crystal clear waters, fun snorkeling sites and local seafood that’s to die for.
Colder Climate Destinations
Up for a bit of cuddling by the fireplace after a day on the slopes? The mountains are calling you and your partner for a wintry honeymoon. Colorado is known for its skiing and winter wonderland photo ops, so if you’re looking to flex your ski or snowboarding muscles, you’ve found the right honeymoon destination. Lake Tahoe is also another gorgeous wintery honeymoon destination that has skiing for days and stunning backdrops for memorable photos.
If snow sports aren’t your thing, New England is another stunning area to visit during the winter. Lighthouse tours, fresh seafood–hello lobster rolls, and cozy bed and breakfasts are all waiting for you. The northern states are teeming with honeymoon destination potential from New York to Chicago. There is more than enough for you cold-loving couple to enjoy!
Why spend thousands of dollars on international flights to hike mountains in Europe when you have plenty of beautiful, national parks in the US to explore? If adventure plays a big role in your relationship, then plan an adventurous honeymoon neither of you will forget. Hike a section of the Appalachian Trail (the whole trail is a huge, months-long undertaking) for your honeymoon and let your outdoorsy selves be free. Camping isn’t your vibe? Head to Yellowstone or Yosemite, see wondrous natural sights, take a few day hikes, and let your inner adventurers thrive!
Your Honeymoon, Your Choice

You don’t have to feel pressured to go somewhere out of the country to celebrate your marriage. The US has a plethora of beautiful, romantic, adventurous honeymoon destinations fit for any couple.
