After your big day, it’s time to kick off your shoes, sit back, relax, and enjoy some personal time together. What better way to kick off your new life chapter than honeymooning in New England? New England is comprised of 6 states: Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. With numerous mountains to hike and ski, charming towns on the shore, delicious seafood and the vast selection of craft beer, New England is a great destination for road trips, honeymoons, or a simple weekend getaway. We’re here to provide you with some amazing places to consider when you start your planning.
Martha’s Vineyard: Our first pick is the wildly popular and well-known Martha’s Vineyard. This beautiful, eclectic island is located off the shores of Cape Cod and can be easily accessed by ferries from Falmouth or Woods Hole. Vacationers, and just adventurous people in general, have all visited this island for its natural beauty, historic sights, famous beaches, and of course, the fresh and locally caught seafood. The Vineyard is such a whimsical, timeless choice.
- You can visit the Flying Horses Carousel in Oak Bluffs, the breathtaking overlook cliffs in Aquinnah, or just take a stroll through the adorable, waterfront streets in Edgartown. Bike and moped rentals are available to visit each location with ease, while also enjoying the views.
- A great place to stay while on the island is Winnetu Oceanside Resort at South Beach. Located in a more quiet, laid-back part of the Vineyard, you’re ensured to have a relaxing, romantic experience that avoids the “touristy” atmosphere. (photo from winnetu.com)
Stowe, Vermont: Is the beach not your thing? Let’s talk about Vermont, specifically, Stowe, Vermont. Obviously known as the Green Mountain State, couples, families, and tourists visit Vermont for its vast farmlands, picture-perfect scenery, and adventurous activities. This is definitely a honeymoon idea for a couple who are explorers at heart. Unlike a beach location, Vermont can be visited all year around.
- You can go hiking and canoeing in the warmer seasons, or choose to go when it snows to participate in all the winter sports! A great honeymoon resort is Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. They offer a special romance getaway option that includes access to the spa and gift packages containing local souvenirs and products. In the middle of all your activities, this resort is a perfect place to dry off your snow boots and unwind. (photo from tripadvisor.com)
Newport, RI: A fun, luxurious honeymoon destination choice would be Newport, Rhode Island. This famous, colonial seaport is known for its sailing, lavish mansions, and classic New England culture. Enjoy a scenic honeymoon filled with seafood, wine, sunsets, and absolute seashore elegance. You can take a Newport Trolley tour to take a relaxing ride and get all your sightseeing in.
- Take a historical tour of the Newport mansions, which is such a romantic and special experience to share with your loved one. Who says you can’t take it one step further and enjoy these mansions even more? By staying at The Viking Hotel, you get that same luxurious feel within the comforts of your own hotel stay.
