August honeymoon from Vancouver

Jump to last reply


I am getting married at the end of July 2014 and am planning our honeymoon roughly between July 30 – August 12. Further, we must attend our friend’s destination wedding in Hawaii immediately afterwards for the August 16th weekend so we are hoping to make this all one big trip, without coming back home first. We are from Vancouver, Canada and are still undecided on location, however we do have a few criteria:

- We don’t want to be lying around on a beach all the time as we will be in Hawaii anyways for our friend’s wedding

- We enjoy culture, food, wine, and nightlife! We’re thinking a bit more of a city vibe would be nice, but somewhere that feels ‘different’ from Vancouver (We would LOVE to go to Europe, but are thinking it may be too far out for our budget/time..  )

- A perfect balance would be about 60/40 between activities/sightseeing and relaxing

- Our budget is around $5000 (not including Hawaii)

Some destinations we have considered are California, Costa Rica, and New York (too far/$$?)…but we are open to suggestions. Any help is really appreciated – we’re both pretty inexperienced travellers!!
