4 Steps for Planning an Incredible Honeymoon in Destin Florida
As any newly engaged couple can tell you, planning for your big day can be a bit stressful. After you finally say “I do”, however, it’s time to relax and have fun! A honeymoon provides a very special chance to unwind after the wedding and enjoy some time away with your new spouse.
Offering some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Destin, Florida is one of the nation’s leading honeymoon destinations. To help you make the most of your first vacation as newlyweds, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a convenient guide to planning your honeymoon in Destin Florida.
1. Determine When You Want to Take Your Honeymoon
Traditionally, couples leave for their honeymoon shortly after getting married. These days, however, it is common for newlyweds to be more flexible with their honeymoon dates. With work and other responsibilities, the weeks immediately following your wedding may not be the best time for your vacation. Finding the best prices for plane tickets can be another factor to consider. Destin is beautiful all year long, so you can feel free to wait a little while after your wedding to take your honeymoon. Just be sure that you and your spouse-to-be are on the same page about when you want to schedule your retreat.
2. Choose the Perfect Suite at the Henderson Park Inn
The next step to planning your honeymoon in Destin Florida is selecting the right place to stay. Voted the most romantic hotel in North America, the Henderson Park Inn is an adults only bed and breakfast that was designed specifically for honeymoons, anniversaries, and other special getaways. Our beachside inn has a variety of suites to choose from, each with slightly different amenities and features. Visit the Henderson Park Inn Rooms & Rates page to find the ideal suite for your escape to the Emerald Coast.
3. Come Up with an Itinerary (or Don’t!)
If you are planning on having an active honeymoon, you will want to do a little research and come up with a loose itinerary with everything you would like to experience during your vacation. Some of the most popular things to do in Destin include:
- Jet skiing
- Sunset cruises
- Scuba diving
- Visiting the Destin Harbor Boardwalk
- Bicycle riding
Of course, some couples would rather have a honeymoon that focuses primarily on relaxation. The Henderson Park Inn has a gorgeous private beach where you can kick back and just enjoy each other’s company. We provide beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, picnic lunches, and sunset happy hours, so our guests don’t have to think about a thing!
