If you enjoy exploring museums just as much as nightlife...

Consider a big city U.S. honeymoon destination. New York City offers endless art museums, boutique hotels and intimate bistros to choose from. For a history lesson, hop on the ferry to Ellis Island or take a tour of the gorgeous St. Patrick's Cathedral.

For a more laid back atmosphere, pack some comfortable shoes for a trip to San Francisco. While you're there, make sure you walk across the Golden Gate Bridge and take a tour of Alcatraz. It's not as fast paced as NYC, but you still might find the city life here can be overwhelming with everything to see. So if you find yourself needing an escape, you're not far from more serene spots like rocky beaches and Napa Valley's wine country.

If you crave an outdoor adventure...

Head to the Colorado Rocky Mountains! No matter the time of year, get ready to take tons of photos of incredible scenery. Instead of hotel lodging, consider booking options like cabin rentals, campsites or glamping spots through Airbnb or Glamping Hub.

Opting for a winter honeymoon? Plan a few different activities like snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding. During the warmer seasons, take in the outdoors by hiking, mountain biking or rafting. If you want an adventure outside of Colorado, consider Jackson Hole, Wyoming for prime skiing opportunities or scenic Lake Tahoe.

Treat yourselves to a Hawaii getaway. With everything to do on the islands, you can keep the planning simple with accommodations at an all-inclusive luxury resort. Besides getting your tan on, satisfy your need for adventure with surfing, snorkeling and exploring Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  

For a beach honeymoon destination on the other side of the U.S., check out the white sand beaches of Key West. Here, you'll find plenty of resorts in addition to adventurous activities like scuba diving among the reefs and the historic Vandenberg wreck.
