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.
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.
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
