Where should we go for our 2014 July Honeymoon?

We would like to go somewhere in the northern hemisphere so we can enjoy summer weather. We want romance and luxury, but would be great with a condo where we could make some of our own meals. We will have 3-4 weeks and are considering Seattle / Vancouver, Canadian Rockies, Hawaii, but are open to other ideas. Anyone have any great suggestions?

Hawaii, Caribbean, MX, if you want beach. Seattle/Canadian Rockies or Alaska if you want more rugged nature. Depends on your interests and what you're into, budget, etc. Do you want more beach and outdoor, bathing suit/water activities or more hiking, forests, city type experience? That will make a big difference! Perhaps an Alaskan cruise/land tour combo? The land tour for more hands-on exploring followed by a cruise, which is always romantic and you are seeing more ports and more experiences.

Hawaii or Caribbean or MX for beautiful beaches, laid back vibe, water activities and some history/culture. Laid back bathing suit vacation can be quite romantic also.

Good luck as you narrow down your choices - your question is pretty broad, sorry can't help more. Congrats in advance!

We did a Hawaii cruise and stay for our honeymoon for 2 weeks...loved it! But with 4 weeks, I wouldn't hesitate to start out in Vancouver and do the Rockies as well before flying out to Hawaii...not sure if that's what you meant when you listed all those destinations, or you meant you were deciding which one of them to do, as I know some people prefer doing things at a much more relaxed pace, especially on a honeymoon. Any of them can be romantic depending on what you prefer, and offer luxury if your budget can afford it, so can't really go wrong.

As far as alternate ideas, what about Europe? Perhaps some time in Italy/Greece (if you do this, don't miss Santorini and Venice -- so romantic!) Coming from California, I imagine that Hawaii and Rockies would be reasonably affordable so you could save them for a later trip, whereas Europe would be more of a splurge, so perhaps more suited for a honeymoon.

You could visit Alaska and then fly to Hawaii - we do have direct flights from Alaska to Hawaii. Maybe do a week to 10 days in Alaska, and then head to Hawaii and visit 2 islands. I would choose the north shore of Kauai in July, but you do need to get things booked soon, as that is very popular time. :)
