The all-time honeymoon classic is Niagara Falls, Canada. My parents honeymooned there over 50 years ago and it is still a favorite destination for many. Be sure to ride the Maid of the Mist or take a helicopter tour over the falls. With an average of 4 million cubic feet of water falling into the river below, this is one impressive sight. There is also plenty of night life, the Niagara Casino as well as the nearby picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-lake to visit during your stay.
One of the hottest European honeymoon destination locations is Italy. It is full of history, art and culture and has a wonderful reputation of being one of the most romantic locations in the world. Dine on amazing foods and wines, explore famous museums, stroll through a vineyard or take a relaxing tour through the canals of Venice.
If excitement, bright lights and spectacular shows spark your enthusiasm then a honeymoon in Las Vegas, Nevada can't be beat. Take in the world's most impressive casinos and line-up of nightly entertainment. Visit the Venetian Hotel for a serenaded gondola ride on the canals inside the hotel or shop at the boutiques of Paris Las Vegas. You'll have no shortage of honeymoon suites available with everything from heart-shaped beds to luxurious penthouses. When it comes to fun and excitement, a Vegas honeymoon delivers.
Next on our list are cruises. Although this isn't one particular destination, we added them here because of the versatility of a cruise. You don't get just one destination – you get multiple destinations in the same trip. Cruises are jam-packed with great activities and entertainment, 5-star food and amenities like gyms and spas. Taking a cruise is a relaxing way to travel and enjoy your time together. Popular destinations are the Caribbean, Alaska and the Mediterranean.

Because of the popularity of these islands there are many packages that are designed exclusively for honeymooners.
