Picture this: You’ve tied the knot, popped the champagne, and now you’re riding off into the sunset. Hand in hand with your loved one, you're on your way to camp at your local state park. Wait, that doesn’t sound like an ideal honeymoon to you? Didn’t think so.
You only get one honeymoon, and poor planning can lead to one that you won’t want to remember for the rest of your life. Instead, take the time to plan ahead for the honeymoon of your dreams. These five most romantic honeymoon ideas may help that vision come true!
- The Beach
Between the sun, sand, and endless cocktails in your hand, who wouldn’t want to celebrate their new marriage on the beach? Some great destinations to experience your beach honeymoon include the Amalfi Coast in Italy with its jaw-dropping architecture, the Maldives where you may see a celebrity or two, and an exotic jungle/beach combo in southern Thailand. A great idea is to book an all-inclusive resort package at these locations, so you can just focus on having the time of your life.
- The Mountains
Cuddling up with your new spouse around a crackling fire at the base of snowcapped mountains sounds like a romantic paradise. A favorite mountain destinations is British Columbia, Canada because it is filled with sky-high mountains, serene lakes, and some of the best skiing in the world. Book a suite at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, which is ensconced between endless mountains and lakes. Another great destination is Alaska, where you can fulfill your dreams of leading a dogsled team and staying at the amazing Aurora Borealis Lodge in Fairbanks.
- A Cruise
The best part about a cruise is that once you board the ship, everything else is taken care of for you. Eat, drink, sleep, and party whenever you want, and all the while, you are being transported to magical and exotic destinations. If you want a tour of the Caribbean, hop on a seven-day cruise to score a glimpse of some of the world’s most beautiful tropical islands. Or you can choose a cruise that introduces you to Alaska, Europe, Australia, or almost anywhere else in the world that has a coastline.
- A Metropolis
You may not think of a bustling city as being a romantic honeymoon destination, but cities like Paris and Florence may change your mind. With swoon-worthy European cafes and spots like the Eiffel Tower and the Duomo, you can knock some famous sights off your bucket list with the one you love. Keep an eye out for couple’s activities in the area to up the romanticism even more. These activities might include a sunset carriage ride around the city square and a stay in an upscale hotel that caters to couples, such as Pavillon de la Reine in Paris or the St. Regis in Florence.
- A Safari
A safari is one of those things that many people want to do during their lifetimes, but they never seem to get around to it. Your honeymoon is the perfect time to go all-out and plan a trip that you wouldn’t do regularly, and an African or Australian safari fits the bill perfectly. Explore the great outdoors side-by-side while getting a firsthand look at animals that most people have never seen in the wild.
