San Francisco is a city of timeless elegance. The rolling hills and beautiful views of land and sea make this part of California so romantic and a top location for honeymooners. The Golden Gate Bridge is probably one of the best-known attractions in San Francisco. Visitors can walk on the actual bridge itself or enjoy a quiet romantic boat ride around it.

While enjoying a relaxing cup of tea, waterfalls and ponds surround the tables, making the environment very peaceful and calm.
Venice, Italy is notorious for its gondola rides. What is more romantic that sitting close to your spouse while getting a tour of the breath-taking city? Nothing. However, the Rialto Bridge comes extremely close. Guests can walk on the bridge and absorb the beauty and scenery of the Grand Canal. In addition, visitors can experience the taste of a variety of wines at Friuli Vineyard. There are many places for fine dining experiences in Venice. Because Italy is so close to the Mediterranean Sea, the Mediterranean food is impeccable. For delectable Mediterranean food, newlyweds should pay a visit to DePisis. For those who want a different style of food, Ristorante Masanillo has high quality Neapolitan. Overall, Venice is a very quiet and intimate honeymoon location.
Aspen is no longer just a winter honeymoon location. This romantic Colorado city has plenty of activities and attractions for any season of the year. Of course during the winter there are all kinds of enjoyable outdoor activities that couples can do together. There is the traditional skiing and snowboarding on the stunning mountains of Aspen with various hills for all different skill levels. Also, snowmobiles are becoming more popular. However, after a cold day of being outdoors, going into the ski lodge is a must. Curl up with your honey in front of the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. The lodges are very quiet and intimate. With a picturesque atmosphere, guests will not want to leave. During warmer times of the year, there are numerous biking and walking paths at hand. While in Aspen, couples should consider visiting Maroon Bells. This location is one of the most photographed in the world. Here, tourists can see national forests and many different species. During the off-season, this area can be driven through also. The Food and Wine Magazine Classic at Aspen is very popular during the spring.
