5 Unique Honeymoon Destinations... Right Here On The US Mainland!

For my husband and I, our honeymoon decision came with some rather strict guidelines; I could not leave the US mainland (yes even to go to Hawaii, just incase my flight got rerouted to Canada!) because should I leave, I would not be permitted entry back into the USA. Which I am sure you can appreciate is not the ideal newlywed situation. My K1 Visa regulations were crystal clear and so our thinking caps went on!

Where could we venture to within the US mainland, that would offer us the sensation of being abroad. We needed a destination that would be unforgettable, completely out of the ordinary and most importantly, that was romantic beyond compare. After 6 months apart and freshly shared vows, this was our chance to really stop and smell the roses. To appreciate how far we had come and happy we were. We knew it had to be good.

Well, it turns out that there are rather a lot of amazingly unique honeymoon experiences to be had, a lot closer to hand than we first realized. Below we have shared our own honeymoon shortlist... I hope they WOW you too!

Paws Up Resort -  This Montana resort brings rustic charm and luxury together in an ever popular movement known as 'glamping' (glam+camping!). This is certainly a new twist on 'roughing it', but if you love nature this is a great way to be a part of it without compromising the usual newlywed luxuries. With stunning charm, five star service and breathtaking views (quite literally on your doorstep), this is certainly a romantic adventure you'll never forget.
