Sun Valley is a honeymoon destination for adventurous couples, with all kinds of outdoor sports, in the winter and summer alike. Tucked into the Rocky Mountains in central Idaho, it has world-class ski slopes, ice skating, and nordic skiing in the winter, and hiking, swimming, white water rafting and fishing in the summer in the nearby Sawtooth Wilderness Area. For those who want to get really close to nature, there are plenty of camping and RVing options as well.
Sun Valley was billed as ‘America’s First Destination Ski Resort’ when the slopes opened in 1936, and attracted stars like Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman and Gary Cooper. Ernest Hemingway made his home here. The glamour endures, and for visitors that means world class shopping, accommodations, dining and entertainment. You can choose a cozy cabin stay or live it up in European-style luxury ski lodges.
For the foodies, there are a wide range of culinary choices, from fondue for two to Asian fusion, steak and (Idaho) potatoes, and creative offerings from chefs who draw upon local, organic and sustainable foods. There’s a lively arts and music scene with galleries, concerts, film and lectures throughout the year. The clear night skies are perfect for star-gazing and night sky photography, adding the crowning touch to your romantic getaway.
