The USA is vast and diverse, offering visitors a multitude of experiences within a destination that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. Mountains, deserts, beaches, rivers, cities and long expanses of lonely road all lie within the borders, making the country a place that truly offers something for every kind of traveler. Based on traffic to this site, which reveals which honeymoon destinations are most often researched, these lead in popularity:





Despite the fact it's expensive to fly and lodge there, Hawaii ranks as the no. 1 in honeymoon destination -- and deserves its first-place status. Beautiful beaches and hidden coves; world-class hotels; fresh, inventive cuisine; watersports galore; extraordinary natural beauty; and perfect weather make this an best honeymoon destination year after year.

Coming in second, thanks to cities as diverse as New York and Niagara Falls, the Empire State has plenty to attract couples on a honeymoon. Everyone should see New York City at least once. If you have a few extra wedding dollars to spend on your honeymoon destination, this is the best to splurge. The world's best restaurants, hotels, shops, and theaters are all here.

Nearly 500 miles away, at the other end of the state, The Falls are affordable on both the US and Canadian sides, there's plenty to do, and seeing one of the natural wonders of the world adds to the excitement of a trip away from home. Nearby Niagara on the Lake is a charming and romantic wine growing area.

Third in popularity among honeymoon destinations, Florida offers coast-to-coast fun. From the festive atmosphere of Miami and the Keys, to upscale Palm Beach and Boca Raton, to Walt Disney World in Orlando, to the action in Daytona and Cape Kennedy, to the gentle beaches and great sunsets on the Gulf Coast side, to the affordable accommodations of the Panhandle, it's one honeymoon destination that offers something for all couples who enjoy warm weather.

Number four in popularity, California has a seemingly endless coastline that draw sun-and-surf lovers with an appreciation of a laid back lifestyle. The state lures lovers to trendy Los Angeles, sophisticated San Francisco, verdant wine country, sunny San Diego and even that bastion of family travelers, Disneyland.

Fifth on the list, it's really hard to have a bad time in Las Vegas, which keeps getting better with new hotels, restaurants and shopping (unless you happen to run out of cash). Younger visitors are less interested in gambling than older ones; to occupy them, hotels have been opening day and night clubs with a party atmosphere.
