Spend your afternoon laying easy by the water on one its many stunning beaches, including remarkable Palm Beach, where the white sand and clear views are lovely and serene and truly feels like paradise.

Newlyweds who love the outdoors while also wanting the small mountain ski town feel, look no further than Breckenridge. Located just 80 miles west of Denver, it's a worthwhile and scenic trip up the mountain highway. It's not as famous as Aspen or Telluride, but it's just as spectacular as easier to get to. No matter the season, it's ripe with activities to keep you and your partner entertained. In Winter, take in a few ski runs at The Breckenridge Ski Resort or experience a sleigh ride through the trees. For warmer months, there's no shortage of things to do. Hiking, white water rafting, even summer dog sledding! Speaking of dogs, this town is incredibly dog friendly, so if you can't imagine leaving your fur baby behind, bring them along on the adventure to go hiking on one of the many nearby trails, or to just relax outside as you enjoy a beer at local favorite Breckenridge Brewery. Don't forget to take a stroll through the downtown area checking out the many boutique shops and breweries, and stop in to grab a bite to eat at Mi Casa for delicious tacos and margaritas. When you're ready to call it a night, get a good night sleep at The Lodge , where you can experience mountain town luxury at it's finest.

Croatia may not be on your honeymoon radar, but it should be. It's got an old Eastern European feel, but with a modern energy. Split is a gorgeous coastal port city located roughly 3 hours up the coast from Dubrovnik, and is the second largest city in the country. Views of the Adriatic Sea and colorful architectural building will take your breath away. It's gorgeous palm tree lined streets of old town are great for a stroll as you take it all in. Enjoy an afternoon coffee break at Teraca Vidilica, and make sure to stop in for dinner at local favorite Korta for delicious local and European inspired cuisine. After you've finished shopping and walking the streets, visit Diocletian's Palace, and hike up the bell tower at The Cathedral of Saint Dominous. It's a great history lesson and interesting to boot. There are plenty of options when it comes to where you should stay, but look no further than Le Meridien. The stunning resort is luxury at its best, and you won't believe the views as you watch the sunset. The city's location also makes it easy to see the many islands of Croatia via ferry. Take a ferry to the must see island of Hvar, only an hour ride away. There you can relax on the unbelievably beautiful beaches, or grab some local wine while you check out the main town. It's perfect for a day trip, and easy to return back to. It's truly the trip of a lifetime, and a magical destination for your destinations honeymoon.

This Wyoming escape is perfect for those looking to lose themselves in nature, and who love a little bit more of a rustic vibe to their vacations. It's also majestically romantic, with mountain views and landscapes almost too beautiful to believe. Enjoy horseback riding while you explore Grand Teton National Park, or rent a kayak and see the park via water at Colter Bay Marina. Of course, there's plenty of hiking trails as well if that's more your style. Don't forget about visiting Yellowstone National Park while you're at it. The World's 1st National Park, it's truly something to behold. With so many different activities and things to explore, you'll never be bored at this monumental treasure. During the colder seasons, there's always skiing at Jackson Hole mountain resort, or go tubing if you're looking for something different. For the newlyweds who love the outdoors, but maybe prefer glamping over a tent, there's no better place to stay than Fireside Resort, where you can sleep in rustic but glamorous cabins, watching the clear and starry skies at night by a fire. This is the perfect honeymoon spot to truly immerse in nature while finding peace and relaxation.

If your idea of a honeymoon is relaxing by the beach one day, and maybe sightseeing the next in a place where the views are out of this world, then Tulum is where you should set your sights. This gorgeous Mexican beach spot will help you and your partner forget the rest of the world as you two have the time of your lives. White sand beaches along the Yucatan Peninsula are perfect for sipping on a cocktail while you sunbathe and watch the turquoise colored waters. Maybe you'd like to see the history of the Mayans out at The Tulum Ruins where you can take in breathtaking views along with a history lesson. It's a must see if you're visiting, so take some extra time to schedule the tours. Adventure seekers may be interested in The Gran Cenote, one of Mexico's most famous cenotes ( a centoe is a large sinkhole) located just ten minutes outside Tulum. You can swim, and even snorkel in this clear water spot. We recommend staying at an adults only all inclusive resort while you stay in this tropical paradise- all of your needs can be met onsite, and they're often incredibly romantic and relaxing. Many resorts have on-site spas, restaurants, and activities, so if you don't feel like leaving the resort, you simply don't need to.
