Your Recommendations on good Honeymoon Spots

Hi All!

I am getting married December .2004. My fiance' and I are trying to find a place to go for our honeymoon. I am looking for a spot that is warmer than where we live (New England) and safe (crime wise). I would like to find a place that is maybe a little rural, but also has good shopping and eating areas nearby. Any advice is very much welcomed. Thank You!

The smokey mountains can be really lovely. You could rent a cabin for a week (or however long you wish to stay). It could be very secluded or in a cluster of cabins. Gatlinburg has many restaurants and shops- lots to see and do. I'm not sure how warm it will be there in December though.

Not much warmer but very rural with all the amenities you could ask for, The Poconos, Caesar's Poconos Resorts. My husband and I honeymooned there in May and had a lovely time! The lake is gorgeous...well the whole view is just splendid! They have winter activities too, according to their brochures and advertising.

Thank you for your replies! They are great ideas! Vermont has come across the list of places we'd like to go. Even though it isn't warm or far away it does have skiing, which we love to do. Any ideas for Vermont? Thanks!

Stowe, Vermont. Great skiing, lots of shops and restaurants, and many places to stay. If you want to spend a bit, you can stay at the Trapp Family Lodge - the family from "Sound of Music" founded it, and I believe that someone from the family still runs it. The lodge also has timeshare cabins that can be rented.

What about Niagara Falls? In December and January the Canadian side has a "Festival of Lights" which is spectacular. The entire city is decked out in christmas lights. Quite lovely. Plus they recently opened up the new casino. The falls are a sight in the winter, especially if it's snowing. Lots of activities on Clifton Hill. There are some ski slopes not too far from the falls as well.

DH and I spent our honeymoon in Napa and Sonoma Valley. We visited wineries, took a hot air balloon ride over the vineyards, and had dinner on the Wine Train. I highly recommend it.

I'm originally from Tennessee, and the Smokey Mountains are really beautiful in the Fall, however it gets pretty cold there in the winter even though it is quite pretty at that time also. The only think about Tennessee at that time of year is that they do not get a lot snow but they get a lot of "black ice". Galtinburg has some lovely chalets and cabins and lots of honeymoon packages. I sent my Son and his wife there for a week after their wedding and they had a wonderful time. Also Pigeon Forge is just a few miles down the road and there is a lot of shopping and restaurants in that area.
