When it’s time to think about a honeymoon destination, most couples think of getting away to an exotic location, a warm Caribbean beach or a couples-only private resort around the world. What you might be missing is one location that is absolutely breathtaking and a perfect honeymoon destination.
Located in Arizona, the Grand Canyon is one of the most beautiful wonders of the world. The depth of sound, the vibrant colors, the rock formations make it a stunning site to see. For couples looking for a way to spend their honeymoon in the great outdoors enjoying one of this country’s most magnificent marvels, the Grand Canyon is a great honeymoon vacation spot.
While you’re enjoying your first days as a married couple, you can also explore the Grand Canyon on foot by taking one of their many hikes throughout the park. If you’d rather take a ride around the canyon, you can do so on mule or horseback as well. It’s an experience of a lifetime to make your way throughout the deep ravines. There are so many other outdoor adventures you and your loved one can have, including camping and rafting. Don’t miss The Grand Canyon Skywalk, a horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge with a glass walkway where you will see the Canyon from a very interesting viewpoint.
There’s also the Havasu Falls waterfalls, scenic daily train trips to the Grand Canyon’s South Rim and so much more. For the romantic side of your honeymoon, visit the Grand Canyon in the evening and the two of you can experience one of the most beautiful and most romantic sunsets in the world.
A great place to stay when you’re done touring is the 100-plus year old El Tovar Hotel which has 78 rooms and 12 hotel suites, each one with a unique name, identity and decor. Many famous people, including Theodore Roosevelt and Albert Einstein, have stayed as guests in this lodge.
Many of the lodges, including El Toval, offer honeymoon packages, so be sure to check out your options before booking. If you want to maximize your adventures at the Grand Canyon, a 5- to 7-day trip is a great place to start. This gives you plenty of time to see the Canyon and also take some down time and relax. Your travel agent can put together this unique honeymoon and all of its details.
