So FI's parents generously offered to pay for our HM, but now it looks like they're pulling out. Our destination went from europe, to california, to now something we can't decide on. That's not a problem, but I was hoping to look for suggestions about places to go that are romantic with around a $2000 budget. FI and I are not interested in something tropical - we have a good friend who has a beach house on the gulf that we're allowed to use, and it's more private and way cheaper (literally just gas to get there and food for the week) than any AI or island thing that we could come up with. We're also not really the adventuring type.
We will be heading out of Birmingham, AL for our HM, and our issue is really that we've been to most of the major cities in the south, many of which do fit our romantic criteria and budget... for instance, FI lived in new orleans for 2 years, and we met in Savannah. We've done disney world countless times, we've cruised, etc. Any ideas?
