There’s nothing more magical than fresh fallen snow coating the ground during the holidays. But, we can all agree that we have a love/hate relationship with winter and its freezing cold temperatures.
If you’re dreaming of a getaway after your winter wedding, then we’ve got some ideas for you! Treat yourselves to a romantic honeymoon full of relaxation and adventures to kick off the beginning of your marriage! And better yet escape the cold winter weather for a while. ☺
Prepare for beautiful views of mountaintops dusted white and, because it’s the off-season for tourists, you can enjoy the spectacular hiking trails just the two of you. In Sedona you can drive through the canyon, pamper yourselves with spa treatments and take a remarkable hot-air balloon ride.
Lake Placid, NY
New York may not exactly be escaping the cold, but it’s definitely a romantic way to enjoy the winter weather with cast-iron fireplaces and heated swimming pools. There are many luxurious lodges tucked away in the woodlands of Lake Placid. Resorts offer activities like skiing, snowshoeing and ice-skating. If you’re looking for a cozy winter vacation, you’ll love being in the heart of the Adirondacks.
If you’re really looking to escape the icy weather, the island’s 80-degree days are where you’ll want to be. You are given access to lush waterfalls, rainforests and mountains to explore. You can also head to the shores for scuba diving and surfing adventures with just enough time to sit in the sand together and watch the sunset.
Amelia Island, FL
Right off the coast of Florida, Amelia Island has miles of sweeping sand and a historic district known for its fudge, seafood and cute boutiques. The two of you can enjoy biking, kayaking and horseback riding along the beach. Be sure the take a romantic carriage ride at night with the marina sunset as your backdrop.
We hope these destinations have inspired you to plan your own trip that you and your other half will enjoy to the fullest! You both deserve it!
