It turns out that getting your honeymoon destination right could be the key to the success of your marriage. There are reports that highlight how certain honeymoon destinations result in higher divorce rates than others, with the Maldives topping the list. A whopping 20% of couples get divorced after traveling there for their romantic getaways. Going the conventional honeymoon route therefore might not be the best idea for you and your spouse. Instead, something out of the ordinary might be exactly what your newly wedded status needs. Planning a honeymoon road trip might sound crazy, but it could provide you with boundless bonding experiences and incredible memories.
Bond Over Planning For The Road Together
Planning for a long cross-country road trip is never an easy task. You and your partner could however use the opportunity to build a strong connection and bond over getting the map and car in order. Spend some time under the hood and make sure that your water, oil, and gas are all in check. Alternatively, you could hire a sporty coupe for the trip and skip your own car checks completely. A coupe car has many benefits, including being extremely economical (which makes it perfect for a long road trip), looking sleek and stylish, and providing one of the most comfortable driving experiences on the market. Plus it will look great in those Honeymoon photos!
Stop At All The Big Attractions, Even If It’s Cheesy
The Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty, and The Walt Disney Resort in Orlando. There’s a reason these are some of the most visited and well-known attractions, not only in the US but around the globe – because they are unique and amazing. Forget the adage that tourist attractions should not be visited and take the time with your new spouse to see the sights and experience the best of what the United States has to offer. Being cheesy and romantic is the exact mood you need to be in to have a successful honeymoon. And if you’re road-tripping, stopping to see the sights with your new partner is a must.
Explore The Countryside In New Ways
Road tripping can be an extremely tiring activity, and after spending long hours behind the wheel all you’ll want to do is slow down and relax. The United States has some of the most idyllic countrysides. If you’re traveling through states like Arizona or Utah, stopping and admiring the diverse outdoors of America will recharge you for the next stretch of road.
Besides the functional aspects of taking a countryside break, seeing the great outdoors with your new partner will fill you with hope and love for the upcoming years. The stars in the country are also far brighter than in the city, so there are plenty of opportunities for romantic stargazing nights.
A long road trip might not be the most conventional honeymoon idea, but it might be exactly what you and your new spouse need!
