Are you trying to decipher which honeymoon location is going to be right for you and yours? With all the beautiful places to travel, it can be tough to decide on the best location for you as a couple. We’ve created a general guideline to help you narrow down your final decision!
Make a list of your favorite activities. Make a list of what you and your fiancé love to do the most in daily life. Do you enjoy the outdoors and hiking? If this sounds like you as a couple and you love exploring, try looking into locations that offer things like scuba diving, snorkeling or scenic bike rides. If you’re more of a cold weather couple, look into mountain locations that are great for skiing and/or snowboarding.
Define your favorite vacation locations from previous years. Identify what your past favorite locations to vacation have been, with and before meeting each other. You want to be comfortable on your vacation and looking forward to it all the way up to the day you leave. Think about where you loved being the most and compare other locations that you haven’t been to that offer the same atmosphere. For example, if you’ve loved going to the lake every summer, check out other lakes in the US or even tropical locations elsewhere that you’ve never been to. It will be a new location but not something you’ll be completely uncomfortable with. You don’t want to go too outside the norm to the point that you’re uncomfortable, but it’s always fun to explore a new location.
Revert to references. Chances are there are more than a few people telling you about different vacation areas that are best. If something catches your fancy, take the time to look into it. Visit their website and ask around to find out if anyone else has been there recently. Sometimes the best kept secret vacation spots are found through friends that have already been there and experienced it themselves!
Do your research. Always check out the websites and reviews of the locations you may be interested in. Specifically if you’re looking into staying at a resort. You want to make sure that the place you’re hoping to spend a long romantic vacation has all the amenities you are looking forward to. If you book your stay, then arrive and realize they don’t offer couples massages or room service, you may be highly disappointed. Avoid this possible outcome by researching!
Review expenses. After you’ve narrowed down your desired locations with the previous tips, go over how much it’s going to cost to get there and stay there for the amount of time you’re hoping. If it is too expensive, consider a different location on your list that you like just as much.
Your honeymoon is you and your new spouse’s chance to relax after all the hectic wedding festivities come to an end. Make sure you two take the time to choose the best vacation location to unwind as a new couple! Happy honeymooning all!
