Hi all,

My FH and I are getting married in June next year.

We wanted to honeymoon in the states (excluding New York, LA and Chicago because they are busy cities)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

    We are honeymooning in Charleston SC. We've never been there so I can't offer an opinion just yet.

    How about the Jersey Shore? I'm prejudiced because I live in Jersey, but it's beautiful. Or the Hudson Valley?

    It depends on what you're looking for. If you want something more relaxing, I'd go to San Fran, Savannah or Key West. If you want something more on the go, try Disney World or Virginia Beach.

    Can you give us some ideas of what you want to do? The US is a big place!

    I'd fly into Boston, then rent a car and drive up the Maine coast. Lobster rolls, craft beer, scenic drives, and bed and breakfasts - sign me up!

    Or I'd eat my way across New Orleans, but I bet it would be very hot and uncomfortable in June.

    You could also check out the Smoky Mountains - Asheville, NC is a fun, cool town, and there are a lot of nature hikes, a casino in Cherokee, and plenty of lovely cabins to rent.

    New Orleans all the way! June isn't too too bad yet as far as hear so you'll still be comfy!

    We are going back and forth between Minnesota's north shore, Chicago and Lake Tahoe

    If you enjoy being out west there are some beautiful places to visit- Painted Hills & Ramona Falls (Oregon), Antelope Canyon (Arizona), Fly Geyser (Nevada), Arches & Zion National Park (Utah)

    Well to be more specific, we wanted something more leisurely, yet romantic at the same time.

    And somewhere that won't be hot in temperature

    Pretty good suggestions so far!

    I have google open in my next window and am researching these places as you all comment

    I would second the Maine coast--that was one of our back-up options, and there are some cabins that look romantic and relaxing.

    St. Augustine, Florida. It has:

    shopping (cute, touristy shops and real shopping)

    awesome site-seeing

    great beaches

    turtles!

    turtles!

    turtles!

    did I mention the turtles? (but you may not see them, they just lay their eggs on the beaches in protected areas and go back out to sea)

    great restaurants

    a neat alligator farm (for realz)

    It is my favorite city in the US (and I've been to a lot of places in the US, I was a well-traveled kid/teenager). I make sure to schedule a visit every time I go see my dad in Florida.

    Here's an article that describes what to do along the Maine coast:

    Also, if you decide to go for a road trip, this site is great for finding obscure attractions and silly museums. It's a lot of fun - my favorite thing I found from this website was Foamhenge. A Stonehenge made out of foam. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/

    We are going to Las Vegas ourselves. But I'm from Michigan and I have to say that if you haven't been it's lovely in the summer (the only time of year it is!) Check out the Traverse City Area (wine country and Land of the Cherries!) or the Pictured Rocks in the Upper Peninsula.

    Vegas, New Orleans, and Disney are some ideas my FH has thrown around. He's surprising me though so these could all be tricks to distract me lol.

    Hawaii is still the USA! But I'm biased. Assuming you don't want that, I grew up in Colorado and lived in Arizona for some time as well. There are some amazing places in both states with so much beauty! I lived in Flagstaff, AZ which is in the mountains (so highs in the 70s and 80s in the summer...not like the desert) and there are these really nice cabins you could stay in and the Grand Canyon is nearby, then you could take road trips up to Utah, and visit things like Antelope Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Monument Valley, and maybe even Vegas if you want.

    In Colorado the rocky mountains are beautiful. My sister had her honeymoon in Glenwood Canyon and Keystone. Steamboat and Estes Park are also beautiful. If you have any questions about any of these places let me know!

    Niagara Falls is beautiful. Key West, FL is the U.S. equivalent to a Carribean Island. Disney World always a winner. Vegas. It really depends on what you want to do.
