A Canada Honeymoon
“From sea to sea,” and everything in between, Canada is a beautiful country with rich culture. Newlyweds will never be at a loss for fun things to do as long as a Canada honeymoon is involved.
Nova Scotia, an eastern Canadian island, provides coastal charm and rich culture. Honeymooners will tour the island’s beautiful Halifax Public Gardens, where the cheery flowers and plush pathways of the property are sure to put springs in the steps of many newlyweds. History loving honeymooners will stroll through the intriguing exhibits of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The carefully documented maritime history of Nova Scotia is well preserved within the walls of the beloved institution. Newlyweds will finish off their dreamy ocean getaways dining on fresh, tender lobster and visiting the romantic, historical lighthouses of the island, including the Sambro Island Lighthouse, the oldest in North America.
Couples who enjoy city life with touches of Old World France will venture to Montreal. Lovebirds will mark their new married lives by celebrating with music that plays to their souls at the Les FrancoFolies de Montréal, a music festival that annually hosts over 1,000 French musicians. After dancing their nights away, honeymooners will tour the magnificent Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, which is home to the works of such prolific artists as Renoir and Rodin. Of course, no honeymoon adventure would be complete without a feast of the area’s delicacies.
Representing one of the most diverse food scenes in the world, Montreal’s must-eats include the city’s famous smoked meat sandwiches (similar to corned beef), Montreal-style bagels (slightly sweeter and wood-fired, as opposed to the more common savory and oven-baked) and shish taouk (similar to chicken shawarma).
Vancouver, considered by many to be “North Hollywood,” is a thriving city in the western half of Canada. Honeymooners who appreciate the movie industry will delight in their trip to this hotbed of film production. Couples will attend the Toronto International Film Festival, second only to Cannes, according to many in the know. The festival is likely to leave some newlyweds “seeing stars,” as the list of attendees reads like a little black book of the biggest players in the industry. If lucky enough, lovebirds will also tour some of the biggest movie studios in the world, including Mammoth and Pinewood, where many of our modern classics have been shot.

A USA Honeymoon
From her purple mountains to her fruited plains, America is a diverse land with a lot to offer. Couples who crave variety often choose a USA honeymoon. Entertainment and outdoor activities rank high on the lists of newlyweds opting for vacations in the good ‘ole U.S. of A.
New York, New York, some would contend the most famous city in the United States, is an electric town, bursting with energy. Popular with folks who love stimulation, the city that never sleeps offers newlyweds spontaneity and fun. Honeymooners will nosh on bagels before taking in dramatic Broadway shows. They’ll grab hot dogs while touring Ellis Island, the gateway to sweet liberty for many Americans’ ancestors. Lovebirds will also savor what is arguably the world’s best cheesecake after laughing it up at any one of the city’s too-many-to-count comedy clubs. Newlyweds will retire up to their well-appointed hotel rooms to sleep peacefully, while the current of the city charges endlessly below.
Outdoorsy couples will breathe in the pine fresh air of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Honeymooners will cleanse their souls by leisurely canoeing down sparkling streams, or they may go the more adventurous route and raft through the heavy rapids of the Colorado River. Other newlyweds will get the famous “Rocky Mountain High” by camping out in any number of the vast state’s parks. Cute, furry creatures, such as prairie dogs will make good company when setting up camp. Come nightfall, the sky will provide lovebirds with romantic ambiance, complete with twinkling lights from the virtual candelabra above. The sweet melody of the Lark Bunting, Colorado’s state bird, will replace romantic radio music.
White sandy beaches are always popular with honeymooners, and Laguna Beach, California definitely delivers for beach going newlyweds. Surfing lovebirds will attempt to hang ten on Laguna Beach’s impressive waves. Or, for more leisurely fun, honeymooners may observe the stunning sea life at any of the area’s tide pools, natural shallow pools in which ocean creatures rest during low tide. Sea stars and anemones are among the most common and beautiful sightings of Laguna’s tide pools. Of course, staking out temporary settlement on Main Beach will appeal to many newlyweds, for who wouldn’t want to bask in the sun’s golden rays while strolling along paths of silky, white sand?

San Francisco Honeymoons
San Francisco wins the hearts of travelers for many reasons. Hills rise and drop everywhere you look. Huge parks share space with skyscrapers and incredibly ornate, bay-windowed Victorian homes. Cable cars rattle over the streets. The Golden Gate Bridge appears around practically every corner -- as does the ocean, surrounding the city on three sides. San Fran is urban without being overwhelming, combining big-time sophistication with the laid-back, dressed-down attitude of the rest of the West Coast.
The Windy City, which sits on the edge of gorgeous Lake Michigan, is a world-class metropolis.

New Orleans Honeymoons
Despite the damage from Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans has not let its romantic allure disappear. By night, the town moves to the toe-tapping sounds of Dixieland jazz, Zydeco (Cajun dance music), and intoxicating New Orleans blues. By day, the city offers enchanting nooks to explore and lots to do. The Cajun joie de vivre is extremely contagious.
