Honeymoons are one of my favorite type of trips that I get to help couples plan. I see it as such an honor to help couples with their honeymoon because the trip marks such a special occasion. A honeymoon is the period of time where it’s just you two. You arrive on your honeymoon in celebration of your marriage and leave your honeymoon prepared to enter a completely new life together.
In the pandemic madness of rescheduling weddings, we often forget that honeymoons are having to be re-thought completely. However, just because you aren’t spending your honeymoon on the Italian coast doesn’t mean that it isn’t equally as special. That’s the best part about a honeymoon – it is perfectly suited for you and your spouse. There are hundreds of destinations in the USA that make for a great honeymoon (or mini-moon)! In the case that you have to plan B, or make this plan A, these destinations are ready to celebrate you with open arms.
The Pearl Rosemary Beach
Hoping for the Caribbean sea on your honeymoon? Rosemary Beach will get you close! The crystal clear waters and white sand beach will make you feel like you are out of the country, when you’re really on the Florida panhandle. The Pearl is a boutique hotel with an intimate feeling right in the town of Rosemary Beach. You’ll have great food and shopping at your fingertips. You can also rent a bike and venture into nearby beaches along 30A, such as Watercolor, Seaside, Grayton and Santa Rosa.
Triple Creek Ranch
For active USA honeymoons, this is your spot. Situated at the foot of the Rockies in Montana, there are so many things we love about this gem. It is an all-inclusive, adults-only, boutique property with 23 log cabins, each with a fireplace, fully stocked wet bar, daily fresh baked cookies, homemade trail mix, and outdoor hot tubs. What we love most is the range of activities! Horseback riding, fly fishing, hiking, biking, wellness, skiing, whitewater rafting, golfing are some of our client favorites.
Ocean House Rhode Island
Perched on a hill in Rhode Island, Ocean House is an iconic beachfront New England resort that combines charm, top notch food and wine, and high quality service. It has been named one of the 13 most luxurious properties in the world by Forbes and is home to the states only 5-star restaurant and spa. You can relax on the beach, explore the town of Watch Hill, visit nearby Boston by train, take a cooking class or enjoy a game of croquet.
An easy, luxurious honeymoon destination for that perfect mix of relaxation and activity. Choose between a river view, beach club, or ocean view room depending on your ideal morning and evening scenery. Our personal favorite activity is relaxing on the beach in the luxurious chairs. However, golf, biking, and shopping are other favorite activities. In the afternoon (or any time of day!) treat yourself to Wonderland with candy lined walls and hand-dipped ice creams with over 20 toppings.
Ritz Carlton Miami Beach
Looking for a good time on your honeymoon? South Beach is the place to be! There are many places to stay in Miami, but we believe that the newly renovated Ritz Carlton has the luxury, privacy, and location that make for a great vacation. Venture out into South Beach for vibrant culture and incredible culinary offerings (our favorites here!). If you don’t want the night to end, you can visit one of the clubs or Juvia, a rooftop bar overlooking all of the excitement.
