Hawaii has been renowned for being one of the most revered honeymoon destinations for years.

2. New York City
Known as the city that never sleeps, you may want to party the night away, spend a romantic day cooped up in a fabulous hotel like the Four Seasons, visit the iconic Empire State building or Statue of Liberty, shop ‘til you drop in Barneys, view amazing artefacts from around the globe in the American Museum of Natural History, take a horse and carriage ride through Central Park or have breakfast at Tiffany’s. Whatever you desire, NYC is the place to be, be it Christmas, a summer vacation or your honeymoon.
For couples who enjoy romance and adventure, Alaska will surely satisfy you. Breathtaking scenery, camping, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, fishing, flight-seeing, wildlife viewing, dog sledging and of course guided glacier hiking. The temperature is more bearable in the summer months and the popular resort of Anchorage, where there’s plenty to do and an abundance of luxurious hotels, is generally quite mild in the summer with its maritime weather. Cruises are the most popular way to view the glaciers up close but there is also the option of low-flying planes for an overview of the beauty of Alaska. If you want to have the unusual experience of nights that never go dark and days that never go light then Barrow, at the very top of the state, has a two-month winter period in which the sun doesn’t rise and 85 days of continuous daylight during the summer!
4. Las Vegas
Yes Las Vegas has been synonymous with weddings and honeymoons for decades, but only now can you truly get whatever you want out of a Vegas vacation. From the classic Vegas wedding with Elvis instead of a priest to a more classy wedding and suite at the Bellagio, glitter to silk, rock n’ roll to jazz, buffet meal to fine dining, motel to luxury hotel suite, Las Vegas has everything. If you both love a never-ending nightlife, this is the city for you.
