||Celebrity Style Honeymoons in Las Vegas
Las Vegas Honeymoons have everything you want and more...
Although Las Vegas weddings and honeymoons have been around for decades, it hasn't been until more recently that you can truly get whatever you want out of a Vegas vacation. From the classic Vegas wedding where you get married by Elvis, to a more classy wedding and suite at the Bellagio, glitter to silk, rock n' roll to jazz, buffet to fine dining, motel to luxury hotel ~ VEGAS HAS EVERYTHING.
Romantic Vegas Moments
You want to honeymoon in a city of lights and flare but still want a little romance...well, it is possible to find those romantic moments in Vegas. #1 would be watching the Bellagio water show at sunset - find a good place in the center to get great viewing. You will be floating on clouds as you walk away. Go into the Bellagio gardens for wonderful photo ops. Also, book a room with a Jacuzzi that views the strip and you will enjoy every moment. A gondola ride at the Venetian is a great way to add a little romance to your Vegas honeymoon. Don't forget to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower for great sunset moments, or have dinner at the restaurant to have longer lasting views of the strip.
There are many shows to pick from depending on your style. All the Cirque du Soleil shows are well worth the money. For a little sexy treat, try Zumanity. If you like comedy, Monty Python's Spamalot or The Producers would be a good choice. Or if you want the classic "Vegas" show, check out Jubilee! Or Folies Bergere. Whatever show you pick, buy your tickets before arriving to get the best deals and seats. A lot of shows sell out, even during the week, so you don't want to miss out by waiting.
Nothing is better than a day of pampering from one of the best spas around. Vegas has become known as a destination for luxury spas, so spoil yourselves on your honeymoon with some great relaxation. Here are the best Vegas spas to pick from:
-Spa Bellagio at The Bellagio
-Spa Vita di Lago at The Ritz-Carlton
-Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Venetian
-Spa Mandalay at Mandalay Bay
-The Spa at The Wynn
-Aquae Sulis Spa at the JW Marriott
-Four Seasons Hotel
-Paris Spa by Mandara
With outlet malls nearby and Fendi on the strip, whatever type of shopping you prefer, you can find. Some of the best spots in Vegas are the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace, the Desert Passage at Aladdin Resort, the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian, Le Boulevard at Paris, Via Bellagio and the Wynn Esplanade. The caliber of the hotel reflects in the stores, so if you're looking for deals, don't go the Via Bellagio where you will find Gucci and Prada. But it is definitely a fun place to window shop!
There are plenty of buffets in Vegas and other restaurants to have a quick bite to eat. Vegas is quickly becoming known for some of the best fine dining in the country. Many celebrity chefs are working in top Vegas restaurants. Check out Alex or Ristorante di Mare at the Wynn, Fleur de Lys at Mandalay Bay, Picasso at the Bellagio and Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian. Try the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris for an extra romantic atmosphere and great views.
Night.. day... the city never stops! If you're big on nightlife, you've come to the right city. Vegas always has new clubs or lounges opening up to attract the young, stylish crowds. Beware, sometimes it can be a depressing endeavor to get into the popular clubs that tailor to their guest lists. If you're dying to get into one of the hotspots, try to get on the guest list or bring a wad of 20's to pay someone for VIP access - VIP meaning that you get to enter without waiting. Money will get you anywhere in Vegas! And you will need it at the clubs in Vegas, where the cheapest drink is $10+ but you will not be let down on the high quality ambiance and music.
There are more than enough places to choose from in Vegas, so choosing a hotel depends more on how much luxury you want, how much you want to spend and where you want to be on the strip. Stay away from some of the child focused hotels, like Excalibur, Aladdin, Luxor and MGM, unless you don't mind kids running around! If you're looking to go all out, these are the best:
-Mandalay Bay - Great Pool!
Honeymoons in Florida: the Best of the Sunshine State
Miami where the heat is on...
According to J-Lo it's the 'steamiest, sexiest city in America'. Celebrities and mere mortals have been flocking to the tropical city where multi-cultural meets hip, bling and a heavy dose of sexy!
Brilliant beaches as far as the eye can see, a buzzing nightlife and excellent shopping: what more could you ask for? And, in South Beach there's the beautiful Art Deco buildings on Collins Avenue and the famous palm fringed Ocean Drive.
Stay at the swish Sagamore hotel, a boutique vision in white, and firm favourite with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Kirsten Dunst.|
To blow the budget, head downtown to the Mandarin Oriental where Tom and Katie Cruise got all romantic! With fantastic views over Key Biscayne, the highlight of the hotel has to be the amazingly tasty Azul restaurant where you can sample the best local rock crab and surf-and-turf in town. For a more 'risque' romantic meal book a table at Tantra, a decadent eatery with a seriously aphrodisiac menu.
Take a tour of the amazing Everglades, the national park spanning the southern tip of the peninsula home to wood stork, great blue heron and egrets; it's the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist. The subtropical has been designated a 'World Heritage Site' and the best way to see it is to join one of the many airboat tours in the swamps; noisy but quite thrilling when you pick up speed!
The Keys: Key Largo to Key West

Stop off in Key Largo of Lauren Bacall and Bogart fame, where the marine sanctuary and 'coral reef state park' are home to 500 fish species. Go snorkelling or scuba diving, or even taking a glass bottom boat tour. Spend the night in Key West's best kept secret, Azul del Mar, a five room hotel with and an extremely friendly welcome.
The next stop is Islamorada, the 'Sport fishing capital of the world'. Quiet and unpretentious, Islamorada's most stylish and romantic hideout is Casa Morada eminiscent of a stylish 50's motel with a cool Caribbean vibe in the air: it's all white linens, sleek lines, swaying palms, a little reggae and brilliant sunshine.
In Key West, America's southernmost city which is closer to Cuba than to Miami, there's plenty to do. Wander around the pastel coloured 'gingerbread' houses or join in the sunset drinks at Mallory square. As a cruise ship port, Key West has a real party town atmosphere with endlessly buzzing restaurants, bars and shops.

It's all about romance: candlelit dinners served on the beach, oversized four poster beds swathed in mosquito netting, and keep an eye out for the adorable key deer that roam free!
