Honeymoons in the United States are often forgotten about because of places like Paris, Rome, or Athens and though we may not have the Eiffel tower, the Roman Colosseum, or Acropolis we do have wonders of the world, tropical beaches, romantic getaways and much more. Here are five of those locations in the US that might be the perfect honeymoon for you and your sweetheart.
5 Viva Las Vegas...
What's not to love about Las Vegas? There is entertainment like hotel Rio's free Show in the Sky, which I have personally seen and love. There are celebrities like Bette Midler and comedian Chelsea Handler who always keeps me laughing when I watch her E! show, "Chelsea Lately", and who can forget the casinos along the strip like Treasure Island, MGM Grand, and The Venetianwhich has a Venice inspired gondola ride. Take a** short drive **west of Las Vegas to enjoy the desert side of Nevada and visit Red Rock Canyon where you can climb and explore the beautiful mountain like rocks. Visit the Hoover Dam where you can be in Arizona and Nevada at the same time and go boating on Lake Mead while you're in the area. Before you two make your trip home take an amazing helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon and take pictures that will make everyone wish they had planned a honeymoon in Vegas! Please share your Vegas hot spots with us.
Aspen, Colorado is beautiful all year round, but if your honeymoon falls during the winter months and you just happen to be an adventure type couple then these mountains are the place for you! Stay in the center of Aspen at Sky Hotel where you can take a dip in the heated pool as the snow lays on the ground around you. What better time to snuggle close together in front of a romantic fire than after a day on the slopes at the Snowmass Village. The ski and snowboarding season at Snowmassand Aspen Mountains runs from November to April and at Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk, which as been the home of the ESPN winter X Games, it's open from December to April. I've never been skiing myself but from the breath taking pictures I have seen on Colorado.com, Aspen would be a lovely place to learn how to ski! Could this be the honeymoon spot for you and your** **fiance?
Waking up to this view on your honeymoon while laying next to your new life long partner will have you pinching yourself to make sure your not dreaming! Niagara Falls, NY has hotels that overlook the falls and hotels like Barton Hill Hotel and Spa whose doors open to the beautiful Falls river. If you and your fiance love the water and are ready for some excitement then take a trip down the river in the Whirlpool Jet Boat, but make sure you go before eating lunch! And speaking of lunch, make sure to stop at the Top of the Falls Restaurant to get a great view of one of the wonders of the world and walk out on the observation tower at the Niagara Falls State Park if you really want to get up close and personal with the Falls. Visiting astounding landscapes on our honeymoons reminds us how phenomenal this world is and how lucky we are to be sharing this moment with someone we love. Tell us about your trip to Niagara.
The six islands of Hawaii have many things to offer any couple and on one special night you may find yourself enjoying a luaulike the one pictured from the island of Maui at the Renaissance Wailea Beach Resort. Or find yourselves 10,000 feet above sea level on Maui's highest peak at Haleakala National Park enjoying the sunrise above the clouds. Set sail on the Makani Catamaran on the island of Oahu and watch the fireworks when you go on Friday night, I love watching fireworks with my fiance and could only imagine how romantic it would be to watch them while overlooking the waters of Oahu, Hawaii. Explore the trails of Kauai on horseback and dip into a beautiful mountain pool and waterfalls at the end of the adventure. Don't forget about the beaches of Hawaii like the Kaupoa Beach on the island of Molokai where you and your fiance can sink your toes into the white sand. See the wonder of Shipwreck Beach on the island of Lanaiwhere an oil-tanker from the 1940s is still stuck among other unknown elements and don't forget to take your camera! One reason to visit Hawaii's big island is the Volcanoes National Park where you may be able to see the Kilauea volcano erupt. Hawaii's six islands are a world of their own and if you don't get here on your honeymoon you should definitely vacation here at some point in your life. Which island will you explore?
