So we didn't plan to take any sort of a honeymoon, for financial reasons. FI has to go back to work 2 days after the wedding, but he has a week off mid-August (he has no control over the dates of that, it's a quarterly shut down period)
We talked about doing a long backpacking trip (one of our hobbies) as we can hike through Waterton National Park down into Glacier and see a bit of that. However, yesterday I started thinking about planning a different getaway, in secret, and just surprising him by taking him to the airport. I would only consider this as I've been with FI for 8 years and I know for certain that he would love that kind of surprise.
As we don't have the funds to do anything super exotic, we will probably be limited to traveling to somewhere in the States (unless we could find something incredibly cheap at the last minute, which I could actually do, since I'm not working, but I don't want to bank on that).
I've been to most of the northern States, but I don't know where we should go. Our dollar/exchange rate is kind of crap, so it would be nice to go somewhere not super $$. There are lots of deals to Vegas, but I've been, and it's not that appealing (and neither of us like to gamble).
So do you have any suggestions? Somewhere with a body of water for swimming would be nice. Obviously we are happy to go camping/rough it. I know many of your parks are incredible so please throw those at me too. I'm open to pretty much anything
