    Honeymoon Ideas?

    Any cheap ideas for a nice honeymoon? We have been married for a couple years, but haven't had a formal wedding. We're renewing our vows and having a ceremony this August.

    I was thinking Hawaii would be nice. Obviously, no trips to Mexico. Where is a good place to look for honeymoon packages? I'm looking to spend <$1000.

    Re: Honeymoon Ideas?

    Cost will, in large part, be dependent upon where you live and how far you want to travel. Since you don't state that, it's really tough to comment. You need to post more information. Where are you departing from, when do you want to go, what do you like to do, what class of accomodations are you looking for, how many days, what about food and beverage---all-inclusive or are you going to eat in the community---privacy or party, beach mountains, or dessert? Those are all things that are going to influence ideas, thoughts, practicality.

    I do this for a living. I'm willing to make suggestions; I just need more info.

    Exactly, 1K thrown at a travel bucket can be filled numerous ways.

    I can depart from Cincy, Indy, or Louisville. All are close.

    About 2-3 days. As far as food goes, it isn't a big deal to us really. Looking for something with a beach, although we really aren't very picky.

    I've never been on a vacation aside from camping or a Reds trip, so anything sounds interesting to me.

    And to add... a cruise might be something we would be interested in.

    Go crazy and try something from last minute.

    If it were me, I'd so Puerto Rico or Costa Rica.

    1K won't get you far out of the country south, and nothing too exciting. But if you go to Canada you'll get great weather in the summer, and a great exchange rate (iiirc) a cabin for a week on a lake in August ain't a bad thing.

    I'd really like to try deep sea fishing, the wife wants to try jet skiing... does anyone know if it is smart to get these packages with activities + hotel or would it be cheaper to buy them separate?

    packages are usually cheaper.
    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    I know it isn't for everybody, but my wife and I loved our honeymoon to Walt Disney World (and a Disney Cruise). We are Disney park addicts, and there is a lot to do for adults and it can be romantic.

    BTW, I'm an authorized travel agent for Disney vacation packages, if you (or anyone else) is interested.

    Go to a Kentucky State park that has hotels. The Kentucky Horse park is cool with lots of attractions. Touring the horse farms with the great horses they have, is pretty fun too. Lot's of tours to take in Lexington.

    I think only having 1k to spend will limit you going anywhere flying south. You could take a cruise, but you have to drive to florida and drive back. That would take up 2 days.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Diamond seats, a great dinner, and a night at the Westin would soal up nearly a thousand bucks.

    Seriously, my wife would dig that.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I never been. But maybe Mexico. Cancun? $1K for 2 people would be a challenge I think.

    Whoops, "no trips to Mexico"? Why not?
