If you decide to skip the June rush and tie the knot in autumn, rest assured that it's one of the best seasons for lovely events and whimsical getaways. Crowds are down, off-season prices are low, weather is still wonderful, and romance is in the air. If you can dedicate some time to research options online, you will find tons of great ideas for honeymoon destinations on resource sites like The Knot and Wedding Channel. Here are a few of our favorite honeymoon destination ideas for fall:
The Oregon Coast is one of the most dramatic and beautiful in the world, and it's best in the fall. When the summer heat is in the Willamette Valley, the atmosphere draws fog in off the Pacific. In September and October, the coast is outstanding, with temperatures maxing out in the high 50s and low 60s. Warm enough to be comfortable, but cool enough for you and your love to cozy up to each other at night. Beautiful secluded beaches, thunderous surf pounding rocky headlands, mild weather, gorgeous sunsets, and more romantic possibilities than you can imagine. Spectacular small towns like Yachats and Depoe Bay invite you to explore the unique shops and eateries.
It's no secret that Vermont has wonderful fall color. That's just the start for honeymooners. The heat is gone, and mild days with crisp nights help keep the thermometer down but the romance hot. Small towns like Pittsfield or Rutland invite you to tie the knot and then celebrate in a quiet, intimate setting. A warm autumn day spent taking in the sights can lead to a crackling fire on a cool fall evening with just the two of you.
British Columbia, Canada
Like the rest of the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia is great in the early-to-mid fall. The rains haven't started, and the scenery is incredible. Vancouver is a world-class destination city with fine restaurants, museums, and culture. It's set in a natural wonderland of mountains, forests, water and blue sky. The city is made for cycling and offers numerous bike tours, and kayaking is another fun activity for the daytime hours.
The crowds of July and August are gone, and the weather is still mild. November is the rainiest month of the year, but the climate in September and October is often comparable to that of July and August. As for the city there is so much to do and see that you will never have trouble planning a day's itinerary and filling it with cultural activities and romantic adventures. Go in early autumn and stay in a bed and breakfast off the beaten path…you’ll have a more intimate experience, and you’ll be able to experience the city like the locals do.
