Honeymooning - The Big Reveal!

Last time we talked about the honeymoon, we talked over a number of very popular, beautiful locales that could be great for our first week as man and wife. We narrowed them all down... and then tossed every last one of them out!

We finally started considering the continental US again, because there are some really amazing places that we've just never been able to get to yet. We discussed Maine, Cape Cod, Montana, Wisconsin (there is an amazing spa there we were really interested in!), and finally, Savannah, Georgia.

And as you've probably guessed, we went with Savannah! Charleston (where we're getting married) and Savannah are two of the most romantic cities in the Southeast, and it really seemed to fit into what we were looking for - luxury, pampering, and historic shops! Since it's only about 2 and a half hours away from Charleston, it's absolutely perfect for a retreat away for a newly married couple, and easy on the budget too!

The main thing we've done to prepare is of course research and book our hotel, and we also signed up for the Groupon for Savannah, to see if they would feature a great restaurant, or adventure for us to do while we were there.

Our hotel is a beautiful historic mansion, and includes a renowned restaurant, a really great spa, and a unique and exotic art gallery.

Finding a honeymoon location was a lot harder than I had originally anticipated! Was it the same for you, or did you always dream about your honeymoon?
