The Ultimate Honeymoon Checklist



After the hustle and bustle of the wedding, and being mobbed by family and friends for days on end,
the honeymoon is your own private after party.  It’s just you and your new husband or wife, and now
that you’ve got each other to yourselves for a few days, you want to make sure you make the most of it.


Planning a honeymoon is often less about finding stuff to do than it is about narrowing down the list of
what you’ll be able to fit in.  With that in mind, let’s look at some of the elements you can mix to make a
honeymoon you’ll both remember for the rest of your lives.


Get up early and watch the sunrise together at least once.

This may sound cliched, but it still stands the test of time as one of the most tried-and-true romantic bonding
you can share.  And hey, once you’re back in your regular lives, how many chances are you going
to have to do something like this, especially if you’re in an exotic location?  Great way to start your day off on
a romantic note.


See the sights outside the immediate vicinity of your honeymoon location.




Even though many honeymoon destinations are self-contained paradise vacations on their own, there’s often
a lot of really good, "road less traveled" type stuff in the immediate vicinity.  Going to London? Take a bus trip
out to Stonehenge. Palm Springs more your speed? Take a ride out of town to go hiking in Joshua Tree State Park.
The possibilities are only limited by how far you're willing to drive!


Do something way crazier than you ever thought you would.




In the mood for a little excitement?  If you are, then maybe instead of sightseeing, going to fancy restaurants,
or sitting by the pool, you can line yourself up for some real adventure.  Get in touch with nature by hiking in
the mountains, going scuba diving, or trying your hand at rock climbing.  If you want to try getting off the ground,
you could take a hot air balloon ride, go paragliding, bungee jumping, or heck, even give skydiving a shot!


Dance, dance, dance!




You both may be off the market, but that doesn't mean you can't still go out and have a great time at the club!  
If you both enjoyed a good night out or even met on the dance floor, this is a great way to get those natural
romantic juices flowing.  Dancing is one of the most intimate things a couple can do, and getting close on the
dance floor just might lead to you guys getting close in other places later on.


Take a romantic boat ride.




If you're honeymooning somewhere near a large body of water, a day trip on a boat can be one of the most
peaceful and romantic things you can do together.  Whether it's up and down a river, out at sea, or even around
a big lake, a beautiful, slow ride on the water will give you the chance to see the sights and get in touch with nature.


Hit the casino (in moderation).




Even though you won’t want to blow every penny you got as wedding gifts, setting aside a few bucks for a trip to the
casino can be a fun diversion for a few hours.  And who knows, you could become one of those people who just popped
in for a few minutes and wound up hitting it big!


Spoil yourselves with a luxurious spa day.




You could use some downtime after all the other excitement, so why not spend it somewhere explicitly designed to relax you?  
A couples massage, some time in the jacuzzi, and yes guys, maybe even a manicure and pedicure could be just the ticket to
refresh you for your next fun activity.


And of course, make sure you fit in a date night or two while you’re at it.




While you're out and about having all this fun, don't forget just to have a nice night doing couple things!  Couples who
have been married for a long time will often tell you that it’s important to keep having date nights, and you can start
that tradition for yourselves on the honeymoon.  Go out to dinner, have a movie night, or whatever you guys liked to
do before tying the knot...keep doing it! (Just do it fancier on your honeymoon, of course.)


Conclusion

There’s no limit to what you can do on your honeymoon, and whether you plan it all out yourself or sign up for an all-inclusive honeymoon, the possibilities are at your fingertips!
