Honeymoon suggestions!! lol (sorry, long)

Hi ladies! Me again! LOL! My FI and I are going nuts trying to find our honeymoon spot! We will be getting married in November and don't want to do the whole tropical theme because we get enough of that here.

We thought about Europe, but since he's never been, I knew that wouldn't be the most relaxing vacation. I go a little crazy wanting to see EVERYTHING and PLANNING EVERYTHING while on vacation, therefore, I know we would end up returning way more tired after the honeymoon then when we left.

So, we are currently thinking about going somewhere where it snows (a lot) since we don't really get to see that often. We're thinking about a resort somewhere up north.  However, most of the ones we've looked into are ski resorts.  Not that we mind, but they don't have anything else but SKIING!!! LOL!

So I want to know if anyone has suggestions on locations that will have snow in November but also has some kind of night life, or LIFE surrounding it period!

Once again, THANK YOU LADIES!! Your advice is always so helpful!

    FI and I went to Breckenridge Colorado in December. I had never been on a plane or seen snow and we had a blast! Soooo much snow! We stayed our first night near the airport (for me to recover, plus it was late), second night in downtown Denver (to adjust to the altitude), then 4 nights in Breckenridge (one block off mainstreet and two blocks to the gondola) and our last night by the airport (to leave the next morning). Seriously, our bed and breakfast was right in the middle of EVERYTHING! During the day we would take the gondola up the mountains (we even went to ski school for a day) and at night we walked up and down mainstreet (shops, restaurants, bars etc.)
     
    HTH!!

    I am going to Vancouver and then Whistler in British Columbia in December for our honeymoon. I'm super excited. We will get to shop and see stuff in Vancouver for 2 nights then go snowboarding, ziplining, moonlit dogsledding, etc for 5 nights in Whistler. I've also read that the drive from Vancouver to Whistler is just gorgeous so we are renting a car for that day, otherwise we won't need one. 

    Other places I would recommend:
    Lake Tahoe- the most beautiful place I have been so far!
    Aspen/Snowmass- tons of stuff to do 
    Vail/Beavercreek- never been but we were looking into it for this honeymoon

    I've heard that the Alaska cruises are AMAZING! It would be a little twist on the honeymoon in a snowy area idea.

    You can always go up north to like VT. But I went to Aspen and Steamboat and loved them both. There are a ton of restaurants and good nightlife in both. Also spas! In steamboat they had the hot springs which we didnt do but looked cool.

    I had the same predicament as you ... wanting to see everything and needing everything planned... so, we're saving our Costa Rica trip for our 1 yr anniversary and taking a more laid-back relaxing cruise where it is not necessary to THINK as much lol.
    There are cruises to Europe as well as the Alaska one that some girls mentioned. FMIL and FFIL went on the Alaska cruise this past year and loved it. They did some excursions like zip-lining and a scenic train tour.
