Top mini-moon destinations

Skipping the European vacation for something shorter and sweeter? Check out these local destinations.



With 60-hour workweeks and schedules packed with events, meetings, dinners, and appointments, it's no surprise couples are skipping the extravagant 10-day European honeymoon and opting for something local instead. And after months of wedding planning, a quick drive to a luxury hotel or B&B to rest and relax sounds much more appealing than a 12-hour flight.

Thinking of staying close to home? Check out these top mini-moon destinations.

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
