Great Honeymoon Destinations in the United States

Honeymoons are a milestone trip every couple looks forward to as part of their wedding planning. Many couples go all-out and opt for an international bucket list destination. What happens when international travel is restricted and the state of the world is uncertain due to a pandemic? Can you still have an incredible honeymoon if you stay in the United States? The answer is YES! Here are some great spots to consider for a memorable domestic honeymoon.

Portland, Maine

This town is the picturesque Maine town you see in the movies. From the delicious seafood to the variety of breweries, this is the perfect place to take it easy and relax. Consider taking a few days to head to Bar Harbor to experience Acadia National Park.

Charleston, South Carolina

These two destinations combine a beach vibe with a city full of southern charm. Charleston has an incredible food scene and the architecture is beautiful. You might recognize some places in Charleston from The Notebook. You can also take some day trips to other nearby Lowcountry towns and learn about the Afro Caribbean influences in the region.

Moab, Utah

For the adventurous couple, this is the perfect place for a honeymoon. Surrounded by national parks such as Arches and Canyonlands, the number of places to hike and mountain bike are endless. Just because this place is ripe for adventure doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities for relaxation as well. Consider a glamping experience here or an accommodation with a view of the Colorado River.


Although many people cruise to Alaska, I think you can get a more in depth experience by doing a land trip. This state feels like another world in the scenery and the culture of the people. Nature lovers will enjoy wildlife sightings as well as boat rides that take you up close to glaciers. The train ride from Anchorage to Denali is absolutely magical. Stay for a few nights in Denali National Park to increase your chances of seeing Denali (formerly Mt McKinley), the tallest peak in North America.
