Honeymoon Ideas for Spring

Read more on "Honeymoon Ideas for Spring" »

Every couple dreams of making their honeymoon as perfect as possible. Newlyweds have to make a lot of complicated choices – organizing honeymoon events, choosing the right season and days, finding comfortable accommodations and, most importantly, picking the destination itself.
In this article we will talk about the best countries and cities to enjoy a spring honeymoon with the person you love.

Spring is very romantic and is perfect for weddings. If you have decided to go on your honeymoon in spring, know that this is a shoulder season between the high and low wedding seasons. Spring is a great time to spend one the most romantic periods in the life of any couple in countries such as Japan, China, the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Peru, the USA  and, of course, Europe.

France

One of the most romantic destinations in the world, France (especially Paris) is wonderful in spring, when the temperatures in the capital are mild and pleasant. They are not as hot as in summer, but very comfortable for strolls and walks around the most famous attractions and places. Remember that during this season Paris remains one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, so it’s still important to book hotels and tours in advance.

Honeymoon Ideas for Spring

Japan

Almost everyone is thinking about Europe or the Caribbean while planning their honeymoon, which is one reason why these are so popular and packed with tourists year round. While some people like classic destinations for their wedding, others might be seeking something more unusual. If you want to make your wedding trip special and unique, you can try other destinations. In this case, honeymooning in an Asian country would be a great way to explore a different culture, enjoy exceptional cuisine and see new places. If you are looking for romance, visit Japan, which holds its famous cherry blossom festivals in the first half of April. These events take place all over the country, but the largest and most beautiful ones are in larger Japanese cities, such as Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka.

China

Those who would like to honeymoon in Asia could also try China. This country was the most popular tourist destination in 2016, and will likely stay near the top in 2017 as well. However, spring is not the high season, so you can enjoy the country without crowds of tourists and long lines at every museum and attraction. In addition, you have a chance to visit multiple national festivals and events during spring: the Sister’s Meal Festival of the Miao ethnic minority is celebrated from April 21 to 23, the Rape Flowers event in Wuyuan in April, beautiful magnolia, lilac, and crabapple blossoms in Beijing from late March till mid-May, and wonderful peach blossoms in Guilin. You can also see the Water-Splashing Festival with the Dai ethnic people living along the Thai border. Romantic and charming, these spring Chinese events will leave you with wonderful memories of a special honeymoon.

Honeymoon Ideas for Spring

Korea

If China doesn’t appeal to you for your honeymoon, you could visit a different Asian country, such as Korea. Special mention should be made of its capital, Seoul. Here you can not only try its excellent cuisine, but also enjoy extremely fascinating attractions and unique places. Moreover, spring in Korea is filled with romance and charm, as with the pleasant warm weather white and yellow blossoms spread like a quilt all over the nation. You can visit the Jeju Cherry Blossom Festival Areas of Jeonnong-ro, Jangjeon-ri and Jeju National University, the Yeongdeungpo Yeouido Spring Flower Festival in Seoul and the Taean International Tulip Festival.

Looking over these wonderful destinations, you can be assured that spring is one of the most beautiful and suitable seasons to have a perfect and romantic honeymoon. With mild temperatures, flower blossoms and shoulder seasons, it will make your honeymoon calm, charming and unforgettable.

FAMILY TRAVEL: TOP TIPS FOR CHICAGO

Chicago: A Great Destination for Families

It took 108 years for the Cubs to win the World Series again, but Chicago instantly captures hearts and minds with “so much great shopping, dining, intriguing architecture, and history,” says Abby Lagman, a Virtuoso travel advisor from Las Vegas. “The city is amazing, and the buzz is always fun.” It’s easy to get around, and there are plenty of kid-focused museums and attractions – as well as a pizza place around every corner, she adds. Here, Lagman shares her Chi-Town choices.

Highs and Lows

Topping Lagman’s list of must-dos is the Tilt, a popular attraction at the John Hancock Center (875 N. Michigan Avenue) that leans forward 30 degrees from 1,030 feet above the city: “Definitely not for those afraid of heights, but such a fun way to see the gorgeous Chicago skyline!”

Another favorite is the coal mine exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry (5700 S. Lake Shore Drive), where visitors descend a mine shaft and ride the rails in a “working” mine. You can also walk through a real U-505, the only German submarine in the U.S. (“Super-cool for kids of all ages,” says Lagman.) Budding paleontologists should visit Sue the T. rex – the world’s largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex fossil – at The Field Museum (1400 S. Lake Shore Drive).

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

FAMILY TRAVEL: TOP TIPS FOR CHICAGO

Pizza at Lou Malnati’s

The Chicago deep dish at Lou Malnati’s “is not like any other pizza you’ve ever had,” says Lagman, who recommends preordering before being seated to shorten the inevitable long wait. The River North location (439 N. Wells Street) is a quick Uber ride from Millennium Park (201 E. Randolph Street) “where you can take selfies at The Bean.” She also suggests families with older children try at least one meal at The Purple Pig (500 N. Michigan Avenue), which she describes as “an adventurous foodie’s paradise.”

The tapas-style menu features octopus and fried pig’s ear, along with house-made meatballs for less-daring palates. Tip: The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so visit during off times or leave your cell number with the host and check out the nearby shops until you get a text that your table’s ready.

Where To Stay (Especially for American Girl doll fans)

Lagman lauds the Waldorf Astoria Chicago (11 E. Walton Street), particularly for American Girl doll fans. The hotel (“a peaceful and beautiful retreat”) offers a special package that includes doll-size robes, slippers, and a keepsake travel bed, along with house car service to visit the flagship store: “A great idea if you have an American Girl doll that’s part of the family!” The Luxury Suite with a fireplace and furnished terrace has room for everyone. 

Adults Only

For a grown-up time, Lagman recommends Untitled (111 W. Kinzie Street), a sprawling supper club with a speakeasy vibe and a 400-deep whiskey library. Live entertainment spans Billie Holiday tributes to burlesque shows.
