Quintessential New England in Nantucket Nantucket is an island of cobblestoned streets and gas lamps, church steeples, wide sandy beaches, picturesque lighthouses, shingled houses with pink cottage roses spilling over trellises and white picket fences. Distinctly historic in the most charming sense, Nantucket's remote location 30 miles out to sea has ensured that it remains that way. Fly in or arrive by ferry; bicycles are the best way to explore Nantucket. If you're planning a summer honeymoon, Nantucket is in high season, so book well ahead in one of the cozy inns or splurge on accommodation at White Elephant with its own grassy lawn leading onto the beach by the harbor.

Head Over Heels for Niagara Falls What's not to love? Honeymooners have been spending time ogling the majesty of Niagara Falls for decades.

Waterproof ponchos are provided for the quintessential Maid of the Mist boat ride, where many a couple has orchestrated a good luck kiss as they pass right under one of the world's largest waterfalls. For an aerial view, take a helicopter tour high above the mighty falls.

If you're bolting on a city break, Niagara Falls is about 400 miles from both Montreal and New York City.
