20 Amazing Cheap Honeymoon Destinations in the US for an Unforgettable Vacation

Many people think that the perfect honeymoon will cost you a lot but if you ask us, that’s just not the case. You don’t have to fly off to some exotic tourist destination on the other side of the world. There are plenty of amazing cheap honeymoon destinations in the US where you can have an unforgettable honeymoon trip without breaking the bank. So, whether you’re looking for a single destination trip or a multi-stop honeymoon road trip, in this post, we’ll cover some of the best budget-friendly honeymoon destinations in the United States. We divided the destinations into several different categories, including wine destinations, isolated islands and beach towns, mountain destinations, lake towns, and deserts.

San Juan Island, Washington

We start off this list of the best cheap honeymoon destinations in the US with San Juan Islands. When speaking about the most beautiful islands in the US, San Juan Island in Washington is often forgotten despite being the nature lover’s dream. The island is located on the north-western part of the Pacific Coast and is known for its jaw-dropping landscapes, combining towering mountains, rugged beaches, and abundant wildlife.

It’s one of the rare islands in the US where you can spot harbor seals, bald eagles, porpoise, and orca whales at one place. There are a handful of romantic, cozy cabins and a lot of great activities for couples. You can relax at the beach go kayaking, surfing, or you can browse art galleries and museums and dine at farm-to-table restaurants.

How To Reach

The island has its own airport, Friday Harbor Airport.

Best Time To Visit

The warmest months are June, July, and August but these are also the busiest. That’s why, in my opinion, the best time to visit is in April-May or September-October.

McMinnville, Oregon

McMinnville Oregon

If you’re wondering why should you visit McMinnville in Oregon, I got two words for you; Pinot Noir. McMinnville is a part of Willamette Valley, one of the most underrated wine regions in the States. With more than 700 picturesque vineyards, the region is the country’s leading producer of Pinot Noir. The charming town of McMinnville combines this with the idyllic countryside of the Northwest, offering honeymooners the best from both worlds. The town is surrounded by mountains and rivers and its geography closely resembles that of Burgundy, one of Europe’s premier wine destinations.

The town is unfrequented and under most tourists’ radars and with an average nightly hotel price between $110 and $120, it’s one of the most budget-friendly honeymoon destinations in the United States.

How To Reach

McMinnville has a municipal airport but that’s mainly used for personal aircraft, private jets, and helicopter rides. The nearest airport with commercial flights is Portland’s PDX (it has international flights too) which’s roughly 1 hour away. And if you’re planning to combine a McMinnville visit with a trip to Portland, make sure to check out our list of quirky things to do in Portland, Oregon.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit McMinnville are the middle-year months (June-August).

Cannon Beach, Oregon

Cannon Beach oregon

Located on the Northern Oregon Coast, Cannon Beach is a picturesque town with a wild, rugged coastline, pristine beaches, and a birdwatcher’s paradise. You’ll find large colonies of seabirds on the offshore rocks but you can also see white bald eagles, pelicans, Roosevelt elk, and if you’re here at the right time of the year you can see one of the biggest seasonal gray whale migrations that take place every spring and winter. In addition to this, there are a lot of exciting trekking routes in the area that lead through lush, old-growth forests that populate the edge of the coast.  

How To Reach

The nearest airport to Cannon Beach is Portland International Airport which is roughly 90 miles away.

Best Time To Visit

Based on the weather, the best time to visit is from late July to early September but if you want to avoid the crowds, you can consider visiting in late May/early June.

Sonoma, California

Sonoma California

Sonoma is one of our favorite California hidden gems. Sonoma might not be home to some of California’s prettiest beaches but with more than 400 local wineries, the town is one of California’s major wine-producing hubs. In near proximity, you’ll also find 50 regional parks, all of which are open to visitors and most don’t have an entrance fee. So, if you’re an outdoorsy, wine-loving couple, this is an ideal place for you. You can also drive up the coast along Highway 1 and discover some pristine beaches, and if you’re lucky even see some sea lions.

And if you get bored of Sonoma, San Francisco and Napa Valley are a short drive away.

How To Reach

The closest airport to Sonoma County is the county’s own Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport (STS), with daily flights on three major carriers.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit is between June and October. Around this time of the year, the weather is at its finest, but this is also the time of year when the crowds are the thickest. But in my opinion, you can also make the most out of your trip by visiting in May or November.

Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Lake Tahoe Nevada

Sitting on the border between Nevada and California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountain, Lake Tahoe is one of the biggest lake in the country and definitely one of its most beautiful ones. The area is also becoming increasingly popular among honeymooners because it offers everything you’d need for a romantic holiday. There are sunny beaches, beautiful mountains and hiking trails, fine dining, world-class entertainment (before and after dark), and a range of romantic accommodation options. Additionally, if you’re planning your honeymoon during the winter, you’ll be happy to hear that there are some amazing ski resorts in near proximity to the lake.

How To Reach

The nearest large airport to Lake Tahoe is Reno-Tahoe International Airport, located a 45-minute drive away.

Best Time To Visit

Lake Tahoe welcomes visitors throughout the year but in my opinion, the best times to visit are March-May and September-November. The temperature is mild (perfect weather), the area is not crowded, and accommodation, in general, is much more affordable.

Havasupai, Arizona

Havasupai Arizona 3

If you’re a fan of remote, isolated places, you’ll love the Havasupai Indian Reservation. The reservation is located near Grand Canyon National Park and is a protected area that happens to be home to some of the most breathtaking nature and scenery in the United States. This makes Havasupai an ideal honeymoon destination for couples who enjoy outdoor activities.

One of the highlights of the area is definitely Havasupai Falls, a pristine, azure waterfall that can only be reached via a 10-mile trek. Because the area is protected, don’t expect to find many tourist facilities, and make sure you’re comfortable with camping throughout the trip as the only accommodation option within the reservation (aside from the campgrounds) is the Havasupai Lodge.  

Want to discover more off-the-beaten-track places in the US? Check out our favorite hidden gems in the United States.

How To Reach

The closest airport to the reservation is the Lake Havasu City Airport, located six miles outside of Lake Havasu City but this is a small municipal airport. The closest large airport is in Las Vegas and is roughly two and a half hours (driving) away.

Enjoying this post? Then you may also like our list of relaxing things to do in Vegas.

Best Time To Visit

In my opinion, the summer isn’t a good time to visit because the temperature gets too hot. Ideally, the best time to visit is during spring (March-May) and early autumn (September- October). Around these times of the year, the weather is perfect for hiking and camping.

Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale Arizona

With 330 days of sunshine and countless interesting things to do, Scottsdale is easily one of the most underrated honeymoon destinations in the US. If you live near the coast and are bored by going on the beach and are looking for something different, Scottsdale might be a great choice. RV Share couples will find a lot of hiking and biking trails, adventurists can venture into the desert, while not-so-active couples can indulge in some of Scottsdale’s many spa centers, enjoy the city’s vibrant street art, and go wine tasting.

How To Reach

The nearest airport to Scottsdale is Phoenix Sky Harbor International (6 miles away).

Best Time To Visit

Because the temperature gets very hot in the summer and is not very pleasant during winters either, the best time to visit Scottsdale is during spring or early autumn.

Taos, New Mexico

taos new mexico

Visit Taos and you’ll see why New Mexico is called “The Land of Enchantment”. The town has been one of America’s foremost, bona fide Art Colonies for years but that’s not all Taos is famous for. Taos is also home to a renowned ski center in Taos Ski Valley and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Taos Pueblo, one of the most iconic churches in the United States.

In addition to this, the town is surrounded by mountains and high desert mesas but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any rivers around where you can experience world-class water sports activities like fly fishing, rafting, kayaking, and paddleboarding. And last but not least, at the end of the day, you can complete a long day filled with activities with some fine dining.

How To Reach

The nearest county airport to Taos is Los Alamos County Airport (60 miles away) while the nearest international airport is Albuquerque International Sunport (130 miles away).

Best Time To Visit

Moab, Utah

moab utah

Moab is a great place for an adventurous and affordable honeymoon. The city is also known as the adventure capital of the West because it offers adventure opportunities like no other town in the region.

It’s one of the rare cities in the US that’s surrounded by two different national parks (Arches and Canyonlands) and two state parks (Dead Horse Point and Manti-La Sal National Forest). This accounts for a unique landscape that offers visitors scenic hiking trails and stunning desert landscapes at the same place! Oh yeah, most of which are completely free of charge!

How To Reach

The nearest airport to Moab is the Salt Lake City Airport (230 miles away). It takes roughly 4 hours driving to reach the airport from Moab.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Jackson Hole Wyoming

If you’re looking for an action-packed honeymoon and are a nature lover, Jackson Hole in Wyoming is one of the best choices you can make. There are many outdoor/adventure activities to keep you busy regardless of the season. In the spring/summer, you can go trekking in Grand Teton National Park (for free), go hang-gliding, or even hop on a hot air balloon ride. During winters, you can go skiing, try some other winter sports, enjoy the winter landscapes, or drive around in a snowmobile. And if that’s not enough, Yellowstone National Park is only 90 minutes driving away and Boise isn’t very far either.

How To Reach

Jackson Hole has its own commercial airport, Jackson Hole Airport which is the only airport in the US that’s located inside a national park (Grand Teton). Idaho Falls Airport is also 1.5 hours away and Salt Lake City Airport is 4 hours away.

Best Time To Visit

It depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re into winter sports, the best time to visit is December-February. Alternatively, if you’re looking for pleasant weather, consider visiting in April-May and if you like autumn vibes, September-October is also a great time to visit.

We can’t really talk about the best cheap honeymoon destinations in the US without mentioning Glacier National Park. Glacier National Park is the largest national park in the country and it’s located in one of the more affordable states, Montana. The park stretches across 1 million acres which means you shouldn’t have a problem finding a romantic spot to spend some alone time. In addition to this, there are a lot of cheap camping sites within the park that can potentially make your honeymoon even more affordable.

Located in Kalispell, roughly 20 miles away from the park, the closest airport to Glacier National Park is the Glacier Park International Airport (FCA).

Charlottesville, Virginia

Charlottesville Virginia

Charlottesville is a beautiful town in the heart of Virginia famous for three things; university campuses, rolling countryside, and of course, wine. And if you’re a history lover, you’ll be happy to hear that Charlottesville is one of the most important historic cities in the US. It’s home to one of the most famous universities in the US, The University of Virginia that’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it was the birthplace of two American presidents, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe. Today, the city might not be as important as it once was but it’s still one of the best, affordable wine vacation spots in the whole country.

The city has its own airport, Charlottesville–Albemarle Airport that’s connected with daily flights to Chicago, Atlanta, New York, and Philadelphia.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Gatlinburg Tennessee

If you both like the outdoors and trekking, Gatlinburg is one of the best cheap honeymoon destinations in the US for you. The town is home to three entrances to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of the most visited national parks in the country. Aside from this, Gatlinburg is also known for its deep indigenous roots, rich colonial history, museums, theaters, and the green downtown where most of the buildings have green roofs that almost camouflage with the surrounding forests when seen from above.

How To Reach

The nearest airport is McGhee Tyson, located 12 miles away from Gatlinburg.

Best Time To Visit

Gatlinburg has two peak seasons- summer (June-August) and winter (November-January) but if you want to stay away from the crowds and get cheaper hotel deals, the best month to visit is probably October.

Outer Banks, North Carolina

Outer Banks North Carolina

When speaking of cheap honeymoon destinations in the US, we just have to mention the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The Outer Banks offer visitors the tranquillity of a charming coastal town with discounted hotel rates and a wide assortment of vacation rentals that make planning a trip to the banks at any budget very possible. Even though the Outer Banks may lack the luxury resorts and fine dining some other places on the East Coast have, they make up for it with beautiful nature, marvelous beaches, and a variety of free attractions.

How To Reach

The two nearest airports to the Outer Banks are Norfolk International Airport (80 miles north) and Coastal Carolina Airport (140 miles southwest). Both have regular flights to many different destinations across the country.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit the banks is between March and May or between September and October. Around this time of the year, the weather is still pleasant even though not as hot as the summer, but the crowds are gone, giving you the opportunity to have a nice and peaceful honeymoon.

Kiawah Island, South Carolina

kiawah island

Granted, Kiawah Island isn’t as affordable as some other places we mention here but compared to similar resort towns that offer similar value, we firmly believe that Kiawah Island deserves a mention on this list of the best cheap honeymoon destinations in the US. Technically, this isn’t an island (at least not according to the classical geographical definition) but it is surrounded by water from all sides, the coast is dotted with scenic marshes, magnolia trees, and live oaks, and is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the region.

The scenery resembles the Florida Keys but is not as over-saturated with tourists, making Kiawah Island a lot more affordable. All this makes it ideal for honeymooners seeking a beach bum vacation.

How To Reach

The nearest airport to Kiawah Island is Charlottesville–Albemarle Airport (around 30 miles away).

Best Time To Visit

Summer is obviously a great time to visit but it’s also the season that attracts most tourists. If you’re looking for a peaceful vacation, consider visiting during late spring or early fall.

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston South Carolina

Once upon a time, not too long ago (2016), Charleston was awarded the title of the World’s Best City by travel leisure because of its laid-back, small-town vibe, boardwalk beauty, and a rich tourist offering that can match some of the much more famous and more visited cities in the US. In other words, Charleston is laid-back yet eventful, making it a perfect choice for a honeymoon destination. The city is famous for its waterfront views, rich history, and spectacular colonial architecture (most notably, around the Rainbow Row strip).

How To Reach

Charleston has its own international airport, located 10 miles away from the city.

Best Time To Visit

The best time to visit Charleston is between March and May or between September and November. The weather is mild and not too hot and hotel rates are not very high, except for the period around Easter.

St. Augustine, Florida

St. Augustine Florida

If you want to combine a beach bum honeymoon with history, there’s no other destination like St. Augustine in Florida. This is arguably the most famous destination in this article but we think it deserves to be mentioned in our list of cheap honeymoon destinations in the US because it’s fairly cheaper than some of the other equally popular (in terms of tourism( cities in the US. It’s the oldest city in the country and has everything you might expect from a romantic destination; sandy beaches, stunning architecture, quaint cobblestone streets, myriad of tourist attractions, and peaceful (and affordable) hotels and resorts.

How To Reach

Jacksonville International Airport (one of the country’s most frequented) is located roughly 45 minutes away from the city.

Best Time To Visit

Weather-wise, the best time to visit might be the summer but if you take the crowd factor into consideration, the best time to visit St. Augustine is between March and May or October-November.

How To Reach

Finger Lakes New York

The Finger Lakes of New York are a great choice for newly married duos who appreciate fine wine and the outdoors but it’s also one of the most attractive destinations in New York for solo travelers. Finger lakes is home to more than 100 wineries and countless nature parks (most notably, Watkins Glen State Park and Taughannock Falls State Park) where you can take long romantic strolls. It’s quite similar to Niagara Falls, just less touristy.

But what makes Finger Lakes really famous are the 11 lakes that spread like fingers across the area (hence, the name Finger Lakes). In addition to this, the area is also home to 40 scenic waterfalls and countless trekking routes, perfect for romantic outdoors enthusiasts. Last but not least, another thing that makes Finger Lakes so attractive to honeymooners is the charming lodging experiences and fabulous glamping sites you’ll find in this region.

Stowe Vermont

Finally, we round up this list of the best cheap honeymoon destinations in the US with Stowe in Vermont. Stowe is a beautiful mountain town in Vermont at the foot of Mt. Mansfield that offers a lot of alternatives for honeymooners. Many consider Stowe to be the alpine ski capital of the East because it’s one of North America’s premier cross-country skiing destinations. However, this isn’t everything Stowe has to offer.

Stowe is actually a year-round destination that offers beautiful surrounding nature and endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, a rich food and craft beverage scene, and an irreplaceable small-town charm that will win you over.
