Honeymoons to the USA cater for all tastes and budgets, offering a glittering array of luxury hotels, romantic getaways and unique charm where ever you choose to stay.

Things to do

Where shall I start? How about ten short suggestions for honeymooning couples, as a taste of what the USA has to offer:

Hawaii – exotic, tropical beaches and luxury resorts

New York City – culture, famous landmarks and incredible sightseeing opportunities

Niagara Falls (US side – Buffalo) – take a trip on the Maid of the Mist boat to see the incredible waterfalls – what a dramatic backdrop to your honeymoon photographs!

Florida – boasting 1800 miles of warm coastline, honeymooners can have a land and sea adventures ranging from diving in the coral reefs to rustic trails. Oh, and there’s Disneyland too if you get bored.

California – Art and culture, beaches and nightlife – California offers it all. Major attractions include Yosemite national park, Hollywood and Laguna beach.

Las Vegas – See the Bellagio fountains choreograph dancing water to music, and of course, everything from penny slot machines to private casinos.

Virgin Holidays

Texas – packed with romantic getaways, the Texas Gulf Coast is ideal for honeymooners. On the upper coast, visit Galveston if you love opera and theatre. Stay in Corpus Christi on the middle coast to see world class ballet, and the southern city of South Padres island is home to beautiful beaches and a semi tropical climate all year round.

Washington – Arts, culture and heritage within the city, with beaches, rivers, lakes, rainforests, gorges and mountains to explore.

Honeymoon Insurance

When travelling abroad, you should really make sure that you have adequate honeymoon or travel insurance. In the EU, your EHIC may cover you for some medical expenses but that doesn’t apply in the US – even more reason to make sure you’re adequately insured.

Single trip policies can cost as little as around just £10 with multi-trip annual policies costing less than £50. It really does make sense doesn’t it!
