Did somebody say happily ever after? There’s no better way to celebrate your fairytale romance than honeymooning at Disneyland. With first-class resorts, endless entertainment, and romantic fireworks lighting the castle at night, it’s the perfect place for lifelong love.

3. Harrah’s Lake Tahoe


For the couple that wants it all, Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is the perfect destination. Indoors, there’s fine dining, exclusive nightclubs, and, of course, the chance to win big on the casino floor! Outdoors, there are things to do for every season, from hiking and biking to skiing and hang gliding.

4. Catamaran Resort, Hotel and Spa


Who said you needed to leave the USA to find a tropical paradise? The Catamaran Resort, Hotel and Spa will transport you to a South Pacific island atmosphere, complete with palm trees, lush vegetation, and waterfalls. Relax in the hot tub, beach, or boardwalk, and enjoy true resort luxury.

Sure, big resorts can be relaxing. But what if you’re a couple of explorers? Carmel Green Lantern Inn is perfectly located near hikes, beaches, golf courses, whale watching lookouts, and so much more of California’s great outdoors. And when you’re exhausted from all your adventuring, curl up in the cozy and historic Cali cottages.

6. Yosemite National Park


For even more outdoor adventure, head to Yosemite for some of the nation’s best natural beauty. Enjoy a rustic stay at a nearby lodge, or consider camping for a trip that’s more economical but no less romantic. After all, what’s more magical than sleeping under the stars?

7. Star Redwood Treehouse


If you want to be immersed in nature, but camping isn’t quite your thing, check out Star Redwood Treehouse. This cozy cabin for two is nestled among California’s famous Redwoods. It’s the perfect place to snuggle up with your SO for a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine.

8. Catalina Island


Catalina Island might just be 20 miles from L.A., but it feels like a different world. This true getaway offers everything from art museums to casinos to zip lining, and can accommodate any honeymoon lodgings, from luxurious resorts to rugged camping. While you’re there, be sure to go snorkeling in Lover’s Cove—you’re in love, after all!

9. Napa Valley


Wine lovers, we saved the best for last. Napa Valley offers so many resorts and vineyards that it’s too hard to pick just one. Travel from one beautiful destination to another by bike, car, or train. There’s no better way to start a marriage than with delicious wine and cheese.
