Want to know where the cool kids are honeymooning? We spoke with Travel Authority agent Mary Surface to find the most popular honeymoon destinations for the local couple who wants to go big:
What could be more classic than Hawaii? It’s almost retro, and you know what that’s worth in the wedding biz. The island chain never disappoints with its vibrant beaches, rich history, and intimate and secluded (read: romantic) locations.
Don’t Miss: Pearl Harbor in Honolulu is a must-see for history buffs. And whale-watching in Maui is an excursion that’s tailor-made for honeymooners.
This oft-overlooked honeymoon destination also happens to be one of the country’s most spectacular states. Alaska offers more than a few picturesque destinations for the newlyweds who don’t need the hot beach to enjoy their stay.
Don’t Miss: Denali National Park at Mount McKinley is an ace location for earth-lovin’ honeymooners with a passion for hiking and outdoorsy splendor.
3. Costa Rica
An exotic and intensely romantic honeymoon spot, Costa Rica never disappoints adventurous couples looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Also, it’s kinda like a budget version of Hawaii. Volcanoes? Check. Coffee? Rainforests? Check check.
Don’t Miss: The lush beaches at the Manuel Antonio National Park and the hidden waterfalls in Arenal are perfect for taking in the moment and enjoying the grand outdoors.
A timeless destination, Greece offers lush beaches, small and intimate accommodations, and rich history. And it’s perfect for those looking to up their Instagram game.
Don’t Miss: Couples can tour famous locations in Athens to learn about Greece’s ancient history or stay in Santorini with its whitewashed villages overlooking the sea. Greece is also abundant with low-tourist populations, such as Lesvos, off the coast of Turkey, which are more suited to off-the-beaten-path travelers.
