You deserve a relaxing and re-energizing countryside honeymoon after spending months planning the wedding, all the excitement of the ceremony and related celebrations. Just the two of you, and somewhere quiet to relax and rejuvenate in peaceful surroundings with fresh air, good food, natural beauty and outdoor activities. If you enjoy the simple things in life, you’ll find destinations like the Great Smoky Mountains and Branson, Missouri exactly to your taste. As a bonus, fans of country music and entertainment like rodeos and stampedes will find outstanding shows and performances to enjoy with your favorite person in the whole world.

So if you’re looking for a serene place to explore your love, check out the countryside honeymoon destinations below. For those interested in kitsch, try traveling historic Route 66 which preserves some authentic bits of Americana. A countryside honeymoon can give you a chance to see rodeos, visit amusement parks, quirky museums, or even catch up with offbeat local tourist sights.

Visit farms where you can pick strawberries or breathe in the scent of lavender fields, stop for a country breakfast or a genuine BBQ, and take scenic drives that run through breathtaking forest and mountain landscapes. Each season has its own beauty and a fun round of activities and festivals. In the fall, take a romantic walk through the woods as the leaf colors turn the mountains into a brilliant spectacle, and end up at a harvest celebration on a farm. Ideally, on a full moon night. Winter in the country with lights, sleigh rides, special bazaars and Christmas celebrations is a unique experience.

Countryside honeymoon destinations have accommodations to suit every taste and every budget. Make a cozy rustic cabin your base or book a stay at a luxurious dude ranch. Many upscale resorts and ranches offer luxury spa treatments and activities like trail riding, yoga and meditation. If you want to get closer to nature, pitch a tent in a national park. Or you can enjoy life in the open by adding some extra luxury with a glamping honeymoon.
