Honeymoon Ideas


Going on a 5 day long roadtrip/honeymoon the end of September mon-fri, no plans on where we're going.
Anyone have some ideas on a few good stops along the way?
She's big on animals/scenery/good food, we want a time to remember but wont have a ton to spend on the trip though.

I would plan some sort of loop. Driving 2 1/2 days in direction and driving the same roads back suck. No matter what, you'll drive by some cool stuff. If had to do it, I would figure out how far I could comfortably get on one day and find a nice place to stay and eat. Plan that out for each day with some stops on the way.

Also, don't be afraid to be sporadic. Most of the time something cool can come of it. It's also way harder to just do something on a whim the more settled you get.

Try to do at least one bed and breakfast.

Drive up through Colorado, Wyoming, & Montana. See the Grand Tetons & Yellowstone for sure for lots of animals & beautiful scenery.

Mountains probably would be the route, our idea of a beach is red clay on the river bank. You don't see mountains here in LA

A 3,200 mile trip isn't bad at all with a spouse. Now wait until you have two little ones in the car with you and that's a whole different story.

By the way, OP did you go into Rocky Mountain National Park at all?

Lol yup still married, that was our first road trip more than the 80 miles to the farm.


We went through parts of the park, there's entrances and trails everywhere we took a few of them into and over a couple mountains. Finally got my new tacoma in 4wheel drive and muddy as hell.
