One of the most difficult decisions about having a honeymoon in California is planning where to go. California is a huge state with many resorts and cities popular with honeymooners. Here are the five best places to honeymoon in California:
While some couples want to relax on their honeymoon others are looking for invigoration. If this describes you and your new spouse, Lake Tahoe is a popular choice for a reason. Depending on the time of year you visit, skiing is the major pastime at this tourist attraction as much as boating and swimming is.
Many couples flock to Palm Springs for their honeymoon. The city has a lot to offer; including hiking trails, trendy shops, outdoor sports activities and music and art themed events. Those that make their way to Downtown Palm Springs find that it has a weekly arts & crafts festival as a well as a weekly farmer’s market. Visiting at the right time of year allows you to attend the world famous Coachella Music Festival. Performers from all over the world participate in this multi-day event, making it an experience worth traveling to Palm Springs for.
If you and your new spouse are history buffs you will want to plan your honeymoon in San Francisco. With museums and art galleries as well as old fashioned trolley cars and Victorian houses that have been restored, there is always something for history buffs to enjoy. San Francisco also has North America’s oldest Chinatown with not only world class cuisine but also oriental souvenirs and artisan crafts.
To spend your honeymoon lounging on a luxurious beach your best choice is Santa Barbara. If you head to the city’s downtown area you will find the East Beach. For a secluded beach experience you will want to visit the Arroyo Burro Beach but for a romantic experience you will want Butterfly Beach.
For a different beach experience another of the best places for your honeymoon is Carmel by the Sea, which is a beach surrounded by a charming village. With quaint galleries, shops and cafes the village has a Spanish feel to it. There are plenty of opportunities to shop for antiques and jewelry as well as many trendy clothes that will help you remember California when you get home.
