DH and I really want a Caribbean honeymoon and are meeting with a travel agent in August. However, if it can't work with out budget, I want to keep an open mind about domestic honeymoons. Someone suggested to me the Outerbanks or Florida Keys. Has anyone honeymooned or vacationed at either? Any reviews/suggestions? We want romance but still some low key things to do like watersports. Thank you for any input!

    The outer banks are great & my family has been going since I was little. I would recommend the sanderling resort in duck. It has a lot of amenities like a nice spa. I would think this place would be more couple focused then family focused (which is what a lot of the outer banks is). If you like microbrews be sure to check out the weeping radish on the drive in.

    We've been going to the Outer Banks frequently for vacation since I was about 9. It's pretty much my favorite place on earth!

    I don't have much to recommend as far as romance, since I'm usually there with my family. But my favorite water activity are kayak tours - usually about 3-4 hours long!

    The Florida Keys are the U.S. answer to the tropics. I love Key West. You forget you are still in the U.S. Very quaint, but lots to do up and down all the keys. But I will warn you, they Keys are not cheap. You could probably do something in Punta Cana for about the same amount of money you would spend in the Keys.

    I've never honeymoon in the OBX

    But I have been there many many times and Love it. I go to Emerald Isle and that is a great spot... Ocean on one side the Sound (bay) on the other. Near it is beautiful Beaufort (a walk to remember was filmed there) the beaches are beautiful I just can't say enough of it.

    Then again I've never been to Key West but my family as a house in West Palm and I love love love FL white beaches FL is amazing haha!

    Me and my friends go on a big beach vacation every year and we'd do a different beach each year but after going to the Outer Banks, it has become THE beach we go to. It's not as touristy as Myrtle Beach but there is still a lot to do. Since it's wedged between the ocean and a bay, you can do almost any watersport you can think of. There's a really nice sunset dolphin tour cruise at Captain Johnny's that is always the best part of our trip. I LOVE it there!

    We go to the Keys three or four times a year! Love it! Just got back from Key West last weekend. I personally would go for the Outerbanks, but that's because I do the Keys all the time. Depends on what you are looking for. Key west is fun but very party driven. Lots to do on the water though!

    There are keys/islands on Florida's Suncoast (west coast). Beautiful sunsets, palm trees, white sand beaches!

    I used to live in Key West and Big Pine Key and emphatically suggest the keys. As your FH is a jar head Smiley smile, you may be able to take advantage of lodging on NAS Key West for some savings.

    We also go to the Outer Banks every year with FH's family. It's so fun and relaxing! A lot of family activities but plenty for couples to do also!
