1. San Francisco
San Francisco has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most romantic cities in the world. The restaurants alone would make this city a wonderful honeymoon destination.

A winter wedding might make Florida a very attractive option for a honeymoon. There are so many attractions in the state that it is difficult to limit your visit to just one. But a well-planned honeymoon could easily encompass Disney World, the Florida Keys, the Everglades National Park, and Miami, one of America’s most vibrant cities.
5. The Oregon Coast
Featuring some of the most-photographed coastline and lighthouses in the country, a honeymoon on the Oregon Coast is a leisurely option after a summer wedding.
