California Minimoon Ideas


Planning both a wedding and a honeymoon can be stressful enough. But what happens when your wedding budget goes overboard, and what's left to spend on your honeymoon is less than you had originally planned? Does that mean that you are resigned to a lackluster honeymoon staycation? Absolutely not! There are still plenty of choices to be had for the happy wedding couple, even if this means investing in a mini-moon and saving that larger getaway for a future date!

Here are three great mini - honeymoon ideas for couples living in California that are easy to travel to, and economical as well.

Cruise - A short 3 or 4 night cruise is a great way to spend your honeymoon! Not only will you be able to get away, but you will have some serious fun to boot! Picture you and yours sailing the ocean, having a blast singing karaoke, attending a heart-stopping magic show, and visiting a local farm making artisan cheeses. At night, the ocean waves lull you two love birds asleep.

Los Cabos - Dramatic desert backdrop and a mecca for foodies, Los Cabos is a veritable wonderland of excitement and exploration! Also known as a "dual destination" Cabo can be split in to two very distinct areas:

Cabo San Lucas is where folks like to party, let their hair down, and really enjoy themselves while visiting lots of fun bars and restaurants, and the famous Medano beach. Experience fun activities like wine tours, sport fishing, and snorkeling at Lovers Beach, a lovely little beach only accessible by water taxi.
