How to go off-beat with your honeymoon in Oregon

Personally, I find Oregon a thing of beauty. It’s anything but normal, so after I got hitched I looked for the most unusual destinations to set up my honeymoon. I really wanted to feel like a tourist, so I tried to search for the most off-beat place. Here are some of my favorites:

Climbing Mount Jefferson

My husband and I are avid mountaineers, and Oregon has a variety of mountain regions that one can explore. Dog mountain trail is perfect for beginners; although we’re daredevils and prefer Mount Jefferson. It’s very steep and challenging, but we truly enjoyed the experience. We cannot wait for winter to come to try out the routes on rough weather conditions!

Silver Falls State Park

It’s no wonder the locals call this place Oregon’s “crown jewel” of park systems – personally, I find it sublime. Silver Falls State Park is great offbeat location that made our honeymoon a dream come true. We loved the wealth of recreational opportunities available, natural beauty, and historic presence. Located at the foothills of Cascade Mountains, and only 1 hour away from Salem, the park is home to one of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve seen in my life. Make sure to hop on the Trail of Ten Falls; a hiking area that descends into a beautiful winding creek! There are great camping spots nearby; as well as a playground and barbecue stands if you want your little honeymoon to really feel personal and alluring.

Cannon Beach

Moving from the top of the mountain to the beach, I do think Cannon Beach is the perfect travel destination for romantic honeymooners in Oregon. Famous for its sandy shores and peaceful vibes, this place exudes romance inside out. There’s Ecola State Park nearby; with sweeping views of the endless ocean, and the most surreal sunset. We stopped by Arcadia Beach as well; where we had a picnic and explored Hug Point with its secluded sea caves.

PortlandCrystal Springs Rhododendron Garden

We’re already familiar with Portland’s famous Peninsula Park and International Rose test Garden, meaning I was convinced that Crystal Springs will blow my mind. We visited the garden in late spring; the 2,500+ rhododendrons and beautiful azaleas made our honeymoon memorable. At the entrance, we decided to go for the self-guided tour because we really wanted to spend some time alone and admire the wildlife at our own pace. Crystal Lake never looked better!

Northeast Portland Cliff – The Grotto

Spanning on 62 acres of lush gardens, The Grotto is a sheer sanctuary with a very unique aesthetic. The tranquil paths and carved Catholic shrines really made us honeymoon feel even more romantic. At Lower Level, the imposing cave has a very nice trekking trail we decided to explore. The art gallery displayed spectacular nativity scenes; and from the gift shop nearby we got ourselves some souvenirs that we will probably cherish for a lifetime. I was impressed by the soft choral music in the background; definitely a must-see for couples.

For an extra $6 we also went to visit the Upper Level of the grotto. The famous botanical garden at the peak overlooks Columbia River Valley, Mount Saint Helens, and Cascade Mountains; a scenery that will always have a special place in my heart. I’m not a fan of meditation, but we got to the Marilyn Moyer chapel, I somehow felt the need to gather my thoughts and just embrace the serenity.

Crazy jet charter experience from Portland to Eugene

Because I’ve always wanted to see Eugene in Oregon, we chosen an air charter service in the last minute, and went on a crazy trip to Eugene. I was pleasantly impressed by the wonders of the city. The mix of impressive museums, variety of parks, and historic allure really made our honeymoon special. My favorite spot was Mount Pisgah Arboretum; a vast area of hills and valleys with stunning farmlands and a very traditional yet welcoming vibe.

What’s not to like Oregon? We had the best honeymoon ever and we would come back to the places I mentioned above anytime. I’m sure there’s plenty more to explore, and we’ve already started making plans for next year.

How to plan a luxury honeymoon you’ll never forget by private jet

You had the perfect wedding. If everything did not go as it should have then most of the things went as planned. Now you want to relax. It has been months of pressure and trying to get every detail right. You deserve a break.

You do not want to plan your honeymoon just anywhere. The place you choose should be meaningful to you. After all, this will be the beginning of a great love story. Perhaps the first on many easy trips you will embark on together. As they say, first impressions are critical. If the first vacation you have together after marriage is not impressive, there are chances that your wife will never let you forget the terrible experiences she had. There are great places to go to especially for newlyweds. Places you will get to love and know each other. The beginning of your life together will be perfect, and the memories you make together not even death can take away.

Little Palm Island

The Florida Keys may not be your first choice, but it should be. It may seem like the world away, but it will be worth it. A quickly from Canada and you re there in a couple of hours. You will have private white sandy beaches and turquoise waters to enjoy. This is one of the most common vacation areas for some of the rich and famous people. If you feel like giving yourself the celebrity treatment, this sunny and romantic island is a place you should consider. There are tons of water sports and boats to enjoy. You can also enjoy the world class cuisines that are just unique to this island. The little palm island resort takes advantage of the beautiful setting and the incredible views from the villas to create a soothing and relaxing experience for their customers. The resort has 30 villas and looks like something from a movie.

San Diego

Here you get 70miles of postcard- perfect beaches. There are dreamy sandy areas where you get exciting activities for newlyweds. There are spas you cannot get enough of and water activities such as kayaking that are interesting and fun for couples. If you are looking for a place that will allow you to enjoy yourself and bond with your spouse, head to San Diego. You also get to visit the historic US Grant so that you can catch a glimpse of the history of San Diego. The best part is after taking in all that history. You get to visit some of the most luxurious beaches, dining areas, and entertainment spots because they are right next to the US Grant.

San Pedro, Belize

Facing the Caribbean Sea, San Pedro is an irresistible piece of paradise. It is home to the second largest reef in the world. The reef is known as the Belize Barrier Reef. You will love every day you wake up in San Pedro because there are endless activities. When you just want to relax, you can rest under the palm trees and watch how an ancient fishing village has been turned into a small town and how tradition merges with technology. You may also visit the Mayan ruins which are an incredible sight to behold. There is an amazing marine life to experience especially during the summer when you can scuba dive and enjoy the water and sea creatures.

Montenegro bay

Booking a private jet charter can be fun and amazing especially if you know where you want to go and how you want to get there. The Montenegro bay should be one of the destinations you choose for your honey moon especially if you do not want to stay in one place for too long. You can still enjoy all these places and have a fantastic time without being bored. Montenegro offers incredible diversity from cultural experiences to water adventures. You will certainly not be disappointed by the calm sandy beaches that always have a new experience to share.
