Gatlinburg, TN

Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have long been a hot spot for honeymooners. There are beautiful, cozy cabins everywhere (make sure you ask about the privacy) and the main strips have tons of shopping, attractions, moonshine tastings, and more! You can always visit Dollywood, one of the most unique theme parks in the world, or take a Smoky Mountain Llama Trek! These treks let you hike with pack llamas through the beautiful Smoky Mountains. And at the end of the day, you can go back to your cabin to soak in the hot tub, have some drinks, and make smores in the fireplace. We recommend using regular chocolate bars AND peanut butters cups.

 Zion National Park, UT

Zion National Park is STUNNING. This park features gorgeous, carved red cliffs, breathtaking waterfalls, and The Emerald Pools. There is even a hanging garden! It is such a magical place, and at night the stars are unreal!! There are lots of places for lodging or camping, but we recommend Under Canvas Zion. They have luxury tents with running water, bathrooms, etc. and they even have a tent with  window over the bed so that you can view the stars at night.

Silver Springs, MD

Silver Springs, Maryland is an economical option for a Washington, D.C. honeymoon. There are lovely places to stay (check out the Etta Mae B&B) and it is only 25 minutes to D.C. Why is that so important? Washington, D.C. is home to the Smithsonian Museums and Zoological Park, all with free admission! Talk about economical! And if you are staying in Silver Springs there are still lots of shops, restaurants, and bars to enjoy.
