When selecting a honeymoon destination, there are many things to consider: the time of year, what type of holiday you want, the duration of your visit . . .

All these factors are important. If your husband can’t sit still but you prefer spending hours sunbathing, or your wife wants to visit historical sites while you’d prefer to relax by the pool with a beer, then the discussion of honeymoon destinations can result in a heated debate.

Similarly, if you want a beach holiday, then having a winter wedding isn’t realistic if you’re planning to honeymoon in Europe.

For this reason, you should consider taking your honeymoon in Florida, if you haven’t already.

Why Florida?

Whether you’re interested in the calm and soothing environs of Palm Beach or cosmopolitan Miami, Florida has something for everyone in terms of a honeymoon destination.

The Sunshine State regularly boasts December temperatures of 35°C (95°F), and averages around 25°C (77°F), making it a perfect beach destination if you are planning a winter wedding.

If you are interested in sports, Florida is home to a large number of tennis courts and golf courses. Or, if you love to shop, Miami is known for its wonderful boutiques filled with both modern and vintage clothing.

You’ll be able to find Florida holidays that offer a great deal of privacy – ideal for those going on honeymoon and therefore perfect for couples planning to travel there. If you’ve got your heart set on Florida, then here are some of the top places to go in the sunshine state:


Orlando is one of the most popular destinations in Florida and home to the world-famous Disney World. However, if you don’t want to spend your honeymoon surrounded by children, there are plenty of other hotels here.

With lagoon beaches, fine dining and other wonderful attractions on offer, such as the chance to swim with dolphins, Orlando is definitely a honeymoon destination to consider.

St Augustine

If you love a bit of history then St Augustine is the place to go. Originally discovered by Spanish settlers in the mid-16th century, St Augustine still retains a feel of times gone by. The narrow streets and old-style architecture perfectly reflect its historical past.
