Travel to the Georgia coast to see what "Travel and Leisure Magazine" ranked as one of the top 50 best romantic getaways. The city is alive with the arts and also has spectacular southern cooking. Check out Food Network star Paula Deen's restaurant Lady and Sons, because you really can't leave the city without being able to say you ate the buffet. For a more quiet, romantic evening, head over to the water and stop by the tapas bar on top of the Bohemian Hotel. Save your Marriott rewards points to get a free or discounted room at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Some of the rooms even have hot tubs in them. Even if you can only stay there for one night, it is well worth a few extra dollars.
Show each other that you can still kid around and that you are not stuck in some antiquated idea of what a marriage means. Have some serious fun by dropping by Dollywood for the day. You can see bald eagles, live music, and theater performances. For a romantic weekend, rent a cabin that overlooks the mountains. A cabin rental is an inexpensive honeymoon because you really don't have to leave all weekend. Just spend your time cooking together, and get a place with a hot tub to keep yourselves busy.
Asheville, North Carolina
Experience the great outdoors of the Blue Ridge Parkway mountains. You can jump off waterfalls, kayak, and ski to get what Asheville is all about. Stop by the original art stores and deluxe chocolate shops in downtown Asheville before heading to the gingerbread house exhibit at Grove Park Inn throughout winter. Another place to visit is the Biltmore, which has upscale boutiques and the Biltmore estate. It has light displays during the winter that can keep any couple warm even in the cold mountain weather.
