The 5 Best U.S. Honeymoon Destinations Of 2018

The wedding is not officially over once the party has stopped. You still have the honeymoon! 

With so many potential destinations, it can be hard to pin down where to go, let alone plan what to do once you are there.

Let's be honest, international flights are very expensive and traveling outside the country also has its set of expenses.

Do not fear! There are plenty of amazing destinations for honeymooning right here is in the U.S., and lots of people are staying local this year.

Whether the getaway is in a log cabin, long days on the beach, touring a wine vineyard, or seeing a musical in the big apple, there is no limit to the options you have here in the states.

Let's take a look now!



Hawaii has always been a popular choice for honeymooning and the reasons remain the same.

Kauai is the oldest but most revered island in Hawaii. It offers endless opportunities to become one with nature while still enjoying the luxuries of your resort.

No matter how nice your resort is, this destination is not one to spend indoors.

I mean who can say no to the gorgeous beaches like Po’ipu or Kalapaki

This place is for couples who enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer. Take a hike on the Kalalau Trail to see a one-of-a-kind view of the famous Nā Pali Coast.

Go swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling but don't end your day without refueling with some authentic Hawaiian cuisine. 

Overall, this destination is a no-brainer but if you spent too much on catering to afford this place, let's check out some spots in the contiguous states. 

Napa Valley

If France isn't in the budget, Napa Valley in California is the next best thing.

California wine is praised all over the world for its taste and quality, specifically, the wine that comes from Napa Valley.

Napa Valley offers incredible tours of some of the world's best vineyards and has been doing it for quite some time.

This destination is for the duos that want the focus of their honeymoon to be on rest and relaxation.

If you are looking for something a little less hoity-toity and more rugged, then take a look at this next destination.

Jackson Hole

Western Wyoming is not a place that comes to mind when most people think of honeymoon destinations.

For some people though, the idea of spending the day hiking through the endless national forest and finding refuge in a log cabin is heaven. 

If that is you and your partner then you have to check out Jackson Hole.  

Jackson Hole is right next to two major national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

With its close access, visitors can enjoy biking and hiking during the summer and skiing during colder seasons.

Go white-water rafting, kayaking, fishing, and even camp if you dare.

There is no shortage of wildlife either. Bison, bears, elk, and many other animals can be spotted throughout the area.

Everyplace you visit here offers a breathtaking view that will remind you of a postcard.

Jackson Hole also has an array of luxury ski resorts for those who are looking for a taste of both rugged and extravagant.

If the rugged wild isn't for you, check out this next destination.


savannah georgia

Savannah, Georgia, is a city full of historical character that is the perfect spot for lovers of history and eccentric features.

Take a walk through the historic district and find yourself lost in the 22 blocks of historic homes and buildings.

After picking up souvenirs, take a break from the tours and enjoy some time out at the beautiful Tybee Island, which is just a quick car ride away from the city.

Because of its heritage, Savannah offers a huge selection of southern comfort restaurants serving up some of the best fried chicken in the country.

They also offer tours of haunted houses and some creepy shows for those who are seeking a little thrill during their stay.
