Travel & Honeymoon Destinations

The idea of a honeymoon is that after a couple marries, they take some time away from the “real world” and get to know each other better and more intimately. A honeymoon should be a time away from the world in a romantic setting plus a time and a place to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are the top three honeymoon destinations:

1. The Caribbean: The Caribbean is made up of several small countries, including the Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and Aruba. The Caribbean is located between North America and South America. The climate is tropical and consists of endless beaches, exquisite dining, and the ultimate in luxury hotels. The Caribbean also boasts of some of the most beautiful and breathtaking sunsets on the planet. The Bahamas and Aruba are the two most popular Caribbean destinations.

2. Hawaii: The very word, Hawaii, conjures up pictures of swaying grass skirts, sunny white-sand beaches, and drinks that all have those little umbrellas in them. Hawaii is many things, and “romantic” tops the list. Hawaii is often described as “paradise,” and it comes about as close as you can get. Hawaii is made up of many islands, but there are only six that are open for tourism and suitable for a honeymoon: O’ahu (The Gathering Place), Moloka’i (The Friendly Isle), Hawaii (The Big Island), Kaua’i (The Garden Isle), Maui (The Valley Isle), Ni’ihau (The Distant Isle), and Lana’i (The Secluded Island).

3. Las Vegas: Las Vegas is billed as the gambling capital of the world, but it is so much more. Elvis was married in Las Vegas, so it might also be called the “marriage capital of the world” now. Las Vegas has it all as far as luxury hotels, dining, diversity, and entertainment!
