When planning your honeymoon trip, you want a romantic time but usually the expense is a concern. The following is a listing of the 5 most reasonable but romantic locations or trips.
Because of all the problems Mexico has had in the past, it is extremely affordable to travel there. Many resorts charge a set fee for all you can eat and drink even alcoholic drinks and room service. And if you choose to go in the summer during the hottest time of the month or during their hurricane season in September or October, you can get discount rates. Many places in Mexico offer dancing, scuba diving, surfing, sailing, horseback riding, whale watching, deep-sea fishing, romantic cruises, and snorkeling as entertainments during your stay.
Las Vegas, Nevada can be just what you are looking for in a honeymoon trip. There are hotels that offer deals for weekdays, and sometimes you can purchase gift certificates at certain hotel websites that can be put towards the cost of food. They have gambling at the casinos and dinner shows that can be attended. Or just arrange for the candlelight dinner for two. One of the main attractions of Las Vegas is that you can “Travel the World” with just one trip. You can climb the “Eiffel Tower”, take a boat along the Nile, or take a ride on a Venetian canal in a gondola.
Key West, Florida can be one of the most romantic places on earth. Just use your imagination. Beach strolls in the moonlight, dinner for two by candlelight, sunset cruises or an evening swim with just the two of you. And to fill in the daytime hours, there is an old town area made for leisurely shopping or sightseeing. And if you are up for more excitement, there are amusement parks galore.
Lake Tahoe, Canada during the summer, is a fantastic place for an inexpensive honeymoon if you book into smaller bed and breakfasts and you enjoy outdoor sports. The evenings can be candlelight dinners for two or walks along the lake in the moonlight. Or if you are looking for more excitement, there are casinos so that you may gamble or enjoy dancing or a show. And during the winter months there is skiing, hiking, dance cruises, casino and camping.
The white beaches and inexpensive hotels place Kauai, Hawaii in the top five choices for a honeymoon on a budget. While most of your expense will be from food, there is nothing better than watching a sunset on a Hawaiian beach. There is also a pleasant little town to explore. And if you are more adventurous, you can always take a tour bus to some of the landmarks. But for just the romance, walks on a beach in the moonlight or walks to cascading waterfalls just can’t be beat. Learning to do the hula dance is one of many offerings in Hawaii or go to a Luau or on an evening cruise for even more romance.
