U.S. destinations are often ignored by honeymooners. But we have so many fabulous places worth visiting, so today we wanted to bring you a few notable U.S. resorts that are worth mentioning if your planning on staying stateside. Katie has rounded up some goodies that I know you’ll immediately want to visit…especially if they are within driving distance.
What can compare to the romance of a Napa honeymoon? Fabulous food, gorgeous scenery, romantic inns…and of course, the wine. Mother Nature’s blessed gift from the vine!
If you’re thinking about a honeymoon spent in the Napa Valley, then you must consider The Carneros Inn. It is a special hotel perched atop Napa Valley wine country. It is made up of 86 individual cottages, each with its own little garden courtyard–a perfect place to relax after a fun day of wine tasting!
The hotel also has a gorgeous pool, a great spa, and incredible restaurants, which of course serve amazing wine.
You thought we’d leave out Hawaii, did you? Well, we’re sneaking it in under U.S. destinations. And if you’re headed to the islands, we love Hotel Hana!
Hotel Hana is on the quiet and secluded eastern coast of Maui. Rather than the high rise hotels in the west coast, here you will find quaint cottages with patios to enjoy the great views.
Besides the gorgeous beaches, you can experience real Hawaiian culture, take a helicopter tour of the island, go horseback riding on the beach, and visit the famous Black Sand Beach and cave pools.
Whidbey Island is in the heart of Puget Sound, and only about an hour by car and ferry from Seattle. It is far from the speed of the city though. The island is the perfect place to do as much or as little as you would like.
Just want to relax? Get a suite and enjoy the peaceful view from your balcony. You can go wine tasting at nearby wineries, or just walk around the island.
Want some adventure? You can go scuba diving, kayaking, bike riding, or even go whale watching.
