Like so many other things during this pandemic, honeymoon plans have been dashed.
You don’t want to put your life on hold for this pandemic, and you want to celebrate your new marriage with a trip. However, you want to be safe. If you want to go on a honeymoon during COVID-19 safely, here are some ideas.
Disclaimer: Whatever you choose to do, please be safe & wise and follow all local, state, and federal regulations!
1. Cozy up in a Cabin
Cabin staying is a very cozy, intimate, and safe option for a honeymoon during a pandemic. It’s just the two of you, alone in a comfortable cabin in the woods. Cabins are typically in isolated locations, which makes it a very safe honeymoon idea. If you don’t want to stay cooped up in the cabin the entire time, you can enjoy some outdoor activities as well.
2. Play it safe with a Staycation
A staycation is where you either stay somewhere in your own town or in your own home rather than traveling far. While this may seem like a last-ditch effort to have a honeymoon, and it very well may be a last resort, a staycation can still be fun. Staying at home can be cozy, and a time to be with solely each other, as well as a time to make plans for where you will go after the pandemic.
3. Heat things up on a Cold Beach
When most people think of a beach, they think of warm, sandy beaches. While all beaches have sand, not all of them are warm. Going to a beach that is colder is perfect for a honeymoon in a pandemic. You get the romantic setting, but get to remain cozy inside. And if you do decide to venture out to the beach, colder beaches tend not to be as crowded as warm beaches.
4. Hit the great outdoors and go Camping
While this is similar to staying in a cabin, camping involves a lot more work and adventure. With a cabin you bring the food, but most other things are provided. Camping means you bring everything else yourself. However, camping allows for more adventures, and is also a very isolated trip. Often when camping, you don’t see anyone else, making it intimate and safe for the pandemic.
5. Do it all in a Day Trip
Chances are, no matter where you live, there is something interesting to see or do that is not far from where you live. One honeymoon option if you are anxious about traveling far is to do a day trip. Ideally, the location would be a few hours a way by car. This could be a great way to explore an area near you while experiencing a new place with your love.
