Planning a wedding is one thing. But deciding on a honeymoon destination? That’s something else entirely! Your honeymoon is your time alone with your new spouse to relax and be away from your day to day lives. It’s probably the most lavish vacation you will probably ever take, so you’ve got to make it a good one!
But this isn’t just any trip! Honeymoon’s are meant to be intimate and romantic! Think of all the stuff you see on The Bachelor wrapped into one awesome adventure! Obviously depending on your budget you may not be able to travel the whole world, but you can at least pick one place from our honeymoon ideas below!
Best Honeymoon Destinations (Our Picks!)
It truly is the happiest place on earth! Whether you’re a Disney aficionado or not, you have to admit, the park is amazing!

Pick a time of year that works with your schedule and budget and be sure to get park hopper passes so that you can visit Disneyland AND California Adventure!

This may be an obvious choice and done many times over but you really can’t deny the cool misty air, gorgeous ocean waves, and colorful natural beauty of Hawaii. Each individual island has its own unique experiences, but the island of Maui has to be our favorite! Take a road trip on the Road to Hana, go snorkeling, hit up a Luau, or get some sun on one of the island's beautiful soft sandy beaches. While your plane is landing, make sure to look out your window to see the whole island from a bird’s eye view, it’s really cool!

Enjoy the rolling green hills and cobblestone streets in romantic Dublin and check out the Guinness Storehouse!
For a romantic getaway with snow capped mountains, crystal blue lakes, lush forests, and enjoying the great outdoors, then Banff is the place to be! Go canoeing in Bow River, go horseback riding, climb Via Ferrata, or hike through Banff National Park! Look out for deer, bears and bighorn sheep!
South of the border you’ll find the beautiful land of San Miguel De Allende. Known for its Colonial Spanish architecture, colorful art, eclectic shops, amazing food and so much more. Wander through the cobblestone streets, trek through the botanical garden of El Charco del Ingenio, visit the many art galleries, go horseback riding, or even take a cooking class!
When you think of Germany, the first things that come to your mind are probably beer festivals and bratwurst. But this beautiful country is so much more! In the city of Munich there are many exciting activities to do on your honeymoon. Go beer tasting, enjoy the local cuisine, take in some culture at the many museum’s, visit Neuschwanstein Castle, see the gorgeous green pastures of Berchtesgaden, or take a romantic stroll through The Englischer Garten (The English Garden).
This has probably been on your bucket list for awhile. For a honeymoon full of thrills, ocean breezes, and eclectic culture, Sydney is the perfect place!
