Honeymoon Destination Decided!

We're very excited to announce our honeymoon is being finalized - FINALLY!

Much like the wedding, we weren't sure if we'd have a honeymoon this year. After much batting around and discussion, we honed in on an adventurous honeymoon - A Road Trip up the California Coast!

While we're still working on an exact itinerary to share, the most beautiful thing about this trip is that, there is no "exact itinerary".  Well, that's got to be the second most beautiful thing. The first most beautiful thing has got to be that we're FINALLY getting our FIRST TRIP TOGETHER as a married couple that's more than just an overnight.

That's pretty exciting!

I thought I'd share some of our prospective hot spots with you -

Hearst Castle, San Simeon, CA - Built in 1865, Hearst Castle is an American marvel through and through, built by a wealthy miner at the time, it even included it's own zoo at one point!

The Danish Town of Solvang, CA - Known of it's windmills, wineries, and delicious food, this Danish land mark village is right in the heart of the Ynez mountains, and the road from here drives though - you guessed it - Central California Wine Country!  I'm sure we'll make a few stops along the way for tastings (driving safely, of course).

Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA - Another beautiful little town, this place is known again for great food, great art, and some relaxation in the redwoods and pines on the coast of Northern CA.

Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey, CA - We'll check out one of the biggest and best aquariums in the country, and spend a day enjoying Cannery Row.

And what trip to San Fran would be complete without a glimpse of the Golden Gate?  Or maybe setting foot in China Town, or Alcatraz?

Think this sounds exhausting? Think again!

All in all, the drive from Anahiem to San Fran is only about 8 hrs, so we'll be able to really take our time and spread things out, driving 2-3 hrs/day and still having plenty of time to spend a day or two in San Fran.

Lucky for us, my dad used to travel A LOT, so our hotels are covered for the entire trip on his gift of reward credits!

Want to contribute towards our honeymoon? Check out the link below our picture on the left!  There is also a link in our Disney Wedding registry page!  Since we're traveling, we'd like to request guests use these, or flat gifts - saves on shipping and we'll have a limited amount of space in our suitcases.

I can't wait! I guess we better invest in some shorts this summer....
