California should definitely be on the list when it comes to deciding where to honeymoon.
The amazing variety of attractions and activities, iconic landmarks, big cites and charming coastal towns would be enough. Combine these with a Mediterranean-like climate; cuisine and wine that's out of this world; proper surfer's beaches and breathtaking scenery; well, sounds just like the perfect honeymoon.
Another important factor when planning a honeymoon is where you'll stay along the way. Again, California is hard to beat with a huge range of resorts, boutique gems, bed & breakfasts and quirky coastal inns. Based on your exact requirements, we'll suggest the best possible options for your budget.
The drive between San Fran and Santa Monica is considered one of the world's most picturesque and dramatic and is better known as the Pacific Coast Highway or California State Route 1. You could easily drive this distance in a day, but you'll want to slow it all down and enjoy the Pacific Ocean views and lovely coastal towns and villages along the way. Here's a sample of our California Coast itinerary. Remember, like any Bon Voyage holiday, it's simply a suggestion, we will tailor-make the honeymoon you're dreaming of!
If you are keen to see more than just California on your honeymoon, no worries - it is such an easy state to add on pre/post destinations.
For example, you could start your honeymoon in Chicago, amidst the romance of urban splendour and skyscrapers before boarding the California Zephyr train for two nights to San Francisco. This rail journey gives you a glimpse into America's backyard.
Bon Voyage Love Fund
We have an interesting twist on the traditional wedding registry - the Bon Voyage Love Fund. Basically, your wedding guests contribute towards your dream honeymoon rather than purchase a gift. It's ideal for couples who already have a toaster and plenty of towels and it's completely hassle-free for your guests. Here’s how it works:
- Call Bon Voyage on 0800 316 3012 and you’ll be assigned your own personal 'Honeymoon Coordinator’
- We’ll provide you with Love Fund cards to distribute to your wedding guests so they know how to get in touch with us to contribute towards your dream honeymoon
- You can check your Love Fund balance with us online at any time
- Any money left in your fund once your honeymoon is paid for can be used to upgrade your flights, hotels, car hire, add exciting excursions, or simply given to you as cash for spending money.
Sit back and plan your wedding knowing Bon Voyage has your USA honeymoon covered.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
