Finding a beautiful honeymoon location doesn’t have to involve venturing out of the United States. There are some stunning spots that will give you all the romance you need without having to stamp your passport once. New York State is one of the country’s most diverse, beautiful locations, with plenty to offer newlyweds.

The Adirondacks

New York’s upstate mountain range is a stunning location for honeymooners, with amazing views, hiking trails and all the rustic pleasures you the adventurous couple could hope for. Our favorite spot in this area is Lake George– a large and beautiful lake surrounded by natural wonders.

It’s not all walks and camping in upstate New York- you can find sophisticated luxury within the natural beauty. Highlands Castle is a real life castle straight out of a fairy tale where you and your husband could spend your first nights together. Located on a mountainside over Lake George, this castle comes complete with 4-poster beds and absolute luxury.

If you’re looking for a honeymoon spot that’s a little less extravagant, The Fern Lodge is an intimate, romantic guesthouse at the heart of the Adirondacks. Complete with cozy fireplaces, jacuzzis, massages and plenty of fun outdoor activities, you’re sure to feel completely relaxed and at home.

Niagara Falls

This amazing waterfall is the spot in the United States (and Canada!) most associated with honeymoons, and for good reason. It’s seriously romantic, and thousands of couples from all over the world make the pilgrimage to America’s biggest waterfall each year to celebrate their love.

For the ultimate Niagara Falls honeymoon experience, stay at the Embassy Suites on the Canada side of the falls. You’ll get the most spectacular view, strawberries dipped in chocolate to share, rose petals on your bed and champagne delivered right to your bed. What honeymooner could ask for more?
