We are in vacation mode at the office with the mid-week holiday, and we promised you more ideas for unique honeymoons, so here they are! Be sure to leave a comment and let us know where you went, or where you are going, for your honeymoon.
- Unhotel Honeymoon: Don’t want to stay at an everyday hotel on your honeymoon? Try an unhotel! There are several resources to rent people’s homes, condos or cabins instead of a chain hotel. You can search by city, type of home, number of rooms, amenities…the list goes on. If you are looking in New York City or London, One Fine Stay looks like a great resource. They offer home rentals, and you can add maid service as an upgrade. All of their rentals come with wifi, fancy sheets and towels, and an iPhone to use during your stay! If you’re looking for a rental in other locations around the country and around the world, try HomeAway Vacation Rentals. They have listings everywhere from Gatlinburg to Key West and Fiji.
- Foodie Honeymoon: Foodies will enjoy seeking out cities known for their culinary scene. Book a chef’s table dinner one night, take a cooking class and sign up for foodie tours. We’ll list a few to get you started, but most any major city will have one. Did you know our fine city of Cincinnati even has a foodie tour?
Cincinnati – Flavors of the Queen City
Boston – Boston Foodie Tours
Michigan (several cities) – Pure Michigan
San Francisco – Gourmet Walks
- Festival Seekers: If you and your fiance share a love of something, chances are there is a festival that celebrates it. Browsing the internet, we came across Garlic Festivals, Film Festivals, Blues Festivals, German Festivals, Horseradish Festivals, Yoga Festivals, Christmas Festivals, Hot Sauce Festivals…the list goes on and on. Depending on the location of the festival, you might be able to plan a week long honeymoon around it, or at least make it a stop on your travels. To start your search, check out these websites: Top Events USA and Festival USA. We do recommend contacting festival organizers or local Convention & Visitor’s Bureaus or Chambers of Commerce to find out the scope and size of the festival before planning your trip.
