Hey guys! So my fiancee and I were initially dreaming of Hawaii and tropical flowers and drinks in coconut shells. But alas, we have ended up with basically no budget room for a honeymoon. If it's a choice between Hawaii and feeding our relatives, I choose the relatives.
Anyways! Is there anywhere along the west coast that wouldn't be too far away, has a beach that gets WARM, and has more of a pamper vibe than a roughing-it vibe? I don't want to camp, I want massages and romance and bathing suits. Does that exist in the region without spending as much as we would on flights/hotels for far-away destinations?
We are new to the area. Help would be very appreciated!
