If you're like most couples in the throes of planning a wedding, by now you are looking forward more to the stress-free honeymoon than you are to the ceremony and reception. Certainly, the honeymoon is more fun to plan too! If you are looking for some fun things to do that are a little off the wall, because that's just who the two of you are, then read on for some unusual honeymoon activities you might want to add to your itinerary.
Ideas for the Ideal Tourists
If you and your spouse-to-be love to sightsee and can't wait to see all the popular spots, read on. Do a little research online for the most visited attractions and pick and choose which ones you'd like to see most. Just be sure not to pack your days - leave some room for spontaneity.
A perfect example, Southern California. There are plenty of typical attractions to visit like Disneyland in Anaheim and Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. More unique ideas include purchasing some San Diego Zoo tickets or planning a visit to the International Banana Museum in Mecca followed by a visit to the self-proclaimed "World's Largest Lemon" in Lemon Grove.
Ideas for the Outdoorsy Couple
Anyone can hike the Grand Canyon. If you're a true outdoor-type couple and you want to pack some unusual adventures into your honeymoon, try some of these ideas:
- Take a hunting trip: Depending on the season, of course, you could get yourself some duck hunting gear and head off for the flyways in North Dakota, Arkansas or Alaska.
- Cave exploring: Mammoth Caves in Kentucky and Fantastic Cavers in Missouri are both fine destinations for spelunkers like yourselves. However for a real treat head to Ruby Falls, Tennessee where you'll find Lookout Cavern...inside Lookout Mountain. It features a waterfall over 145 feet tall. Another great spot is the Caverns of Sonora in Texas where you can see some great bacon-shaped formations.
Ideas for Resort Lovers
Nothing beats an all-inclusive resort or cruise for a fantasy honeymoon. But before you go where everyone else does, look for a destination that might be on the road less traveled. The Coeur d'Alene Resortin Idaho is an option. It features a casino, golf course, spas and access to great nightlife and outdoor adventure.
The Skytop Lodge in the Poconos Mountains of Pennsylvania mountains will give you plenty of fun activities combined with some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the world.
