Total Opposites!

Lindsey, on April 12, 2024 at 12:54 PM Posted in Honeymoon 1 10

We can't figure out where to go for our honeymoon. I want to go somewhere where there are things to do (theme park nearby, beach, etc.) He doesnt want to go in the ocean. We were considering New Orleans, but he says some of the places are bad juju (Im from the Louisiana area so I didnt understand the big deal). He mentioned Colorado, but theres not much to do I like, and Im not a ski girl. My dream is PNW but are honeymoon is only a few days and I wouldnt know where to go since I want to see Oregon AND Washington. I dont mind hiking but im no expert. And aesthetic is a big deal. So it cant be somewhere like New York. We are getting married the first week of November. Any recommendations?

    Some location ideas could be: Vegas, Orlando, somewhere in Tennessee (Nashville, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge), bourbon trails in Kentucky (Louisville, Lexington, etc, you also could see Mammoth Caves), or Texas (San Antonio and/or Austin).

    You can always delay your honeymoon to a different month/season to open up your options. That way the climate and such won't be a barrier. Most people I know didn't have their honeymoon until 2+ months after the actual wedding, including me.

    You could try the Palm Springs area. From there you can take a tram to get up near the San Jacinto summit to hike. You can go to the Joshua Tree National Park. There are also hot springs around and various casino-resorts. You might still get some sun too.

    Ooops. I have to change this. the travel time would probably be too long.

    Make a list of things that appeal to you and go from there. The PNW is cold and wet in the winter, unless you go to certain pockets which are cold and dry. They are beautiful year round though. You can always visit for an anniversary.


    Winter in Las Vegas is nice because the temperatures have cooled off. It depends on what you are into.

    Columbia River Valley is beautiful. Wineries, hiking, fresh air. Tacoma has a fantastic Chihuly museum. It's been a while since I lived in PNW, so I can't remember rainfall in those months. But, I do know Portland is more dangerous now so be careful. San Francisco is warm in Oct, but likewise more dangerous now as well. Good luck.

    Seattle has a lot to offer. You can see the ocean w/o getting in as it's pretty freezing cold, Smiley winking & you can see a lot of really cool things all within walking distance. The Chihuly Garden & Glass is there! There;s a really cool salt water tide pool & a sensory lounge. There's a museum of pop culture & just about everywhere, you can get day passes that allow you to into a lot of things for "free", (the cost is included in the cost of your pass) You can see the zoo, go to the aquarium, or even take a harbor cruise! Check out city pass dot com to see what's offered. If you go, don't skip a ride on The Seattle Great Wheel! It's a ferris wheel over the ocean. Very cool experience & a heck of a photo opportunity! Pike Place has some pretty delicious chowder Smiley smile

    Vegas is absolutely gorgeous in November. Go for a resort outside the city, take trips in. He'll get the serenity and nature he's craving, and you get excitement/amusement just a short Uber away.

    Just FYI, it's peak season for Vegas so book early if you're shopping for accommodations. They'll only continue to rise as we move through summer.

    Oh just an update on Vegas: I learned that they have a Formula 1 contract for a race every November for at least two more years, so the Strip is absolutely decimated with setup for this. The timing for your honeymoon would mean having to contend with cordoned off areas and ruined views. So, not the best time to go.

    You can always opt to do the Whiskey trail in parts of Kentucky and Tennessee, although it will be cooler. If money isn't too much of an issue, San Diego county isn't a bad place. There are trails in the hills, winery inland in the Temecula area, shopping in the coastline as well as boat rides and romantic restaurants.
