Wadmalaw Island

Despite its expansive size and proximity to the major tourist destinations of Charleston, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, and Folly Beach, Wadmalaw Island is a refreshingly unpopulated, quiet, and authentically local realm of the South Carolina region, with just a couple of surprises for visitors hidden under acres of live oaks. Home to the Bolt Farm Treehouse, you can escape the bustling world by relaxing in this luxurious getaway while being close to all the South Carolina coast has to offer.

St. Simons Island

St. Simons Island, Georgia is home to fabulous beaches, golfing, charter fishing, spas and salons, and a variety of restaurants, and entertainment for everyone. The unspoiled beauty of St. Simons and its distinctively charming beach lifestyle that is unhurried and under-developed are what make it so special. It’s no wonder St. Simons Island was recently voted among the most romantic destinations in the U.S.

National Parks

The National Parks are a perfect place for a relaxing honeymoon. Bring a book, camera or just a good pair of binoculars for this honeymoon. The National Parks are a great place to unwind from a busy wedding day and with no cell service, you will have plenty of time to spend with each other. Plan a short road trip, rent a few cabins or camp. Exploring nature’s beauty is a great way to relax and start your adventures as a married couple.
