For all of our brides and grooms out there trying to plan your weddings and honeymoons during these tumultuous times, we feel your pain. Rules are chaining by the day and it can be confusing and frustrating to try to plan a honeymoon in 2021. While many international destinations are off the table, we’ve compiled a list of our top picks for a domestic honeymoon in 2021:

  • Key West – This laidback getaway is the southernmost tip of the continental United States. You can enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding around the mangroves, indulge in delicious outdoor dining, and charter a sailing yacht (we recommend Blue Sail Charters) to Dry Tortugas National Park for diving and snorkeling.
  • Drive highway 1 California – The Pacific Coast Highway is one of the most romantic road trips in the entire world. We highly recommend stopping in the Redwood Forest, Mendocino, Sonoma, San Francisco, Big Sur, Monterey, Carmel, San Simeon, Santa Barbara, and Malibu. There are so many romantic hotels and inns along Highway 1. We recommend staying at Post Ranch Inn, Ventana Big Sur, Brewery Gulch Inn, Farmhouse Inn Sonoma, and El Encanto in Santa Barbara.

There are white sand beaches, luxury hotels, incredible food, cultural tours of Little Havana, and a plethora of outdoor activities! While you’re in Miami, stay at the Faena Miami Beach, The Setai, or The Four Seasons at the Surf Club.

From the romantic island of Maui to the adventurous island of Kauai, the geographic diversity of the Big Island to the romantic and remote island of Lanai, there are so many beautiful options to honeymoon on the islands of Hawaii.
