Ah... if only I could go on another honeymoon. Maybe a 10-year anniversary trip? We had a wonderful, relaxing, exotic honeymoon to Cambodia and Thailand. Highly recommended! Also, Bali is a great honeymoon destination.

I spent my honeymoon at Disney world in Florida ^_^ Fabulous! There are a lot of great places in California but I have to disagree with Palm Springs... I lived there for 13 years and unless you like to sweat, sand or golf... not so great! It's in the middle of a dessert valley... no beach

I just loved your thoughts on 1-6 though ^_^ Voting up and useful!

Disney world in Florida is becoming more and more popular for honeymooners. great nightlife and restaurants along with it's proximity to all that Florida has to offer are making it a top destination for sure. As far as Palm Springs, if you visit in the winter it is a nice change from the norm. It has great golf, restaraunts, nightlife and is one of the only continental places where you can lie out by the pool in the middle of winter and get a tan.
