Fun without the Fuss in the U.S. Virgin Islands
The U.S. Virgin Islands have everything from white sandy beaches to the best shopping in the Caribbean. Being a U.S. destination, it is easily accessible for U.S. citizens, and you don't even need a passport, which makes it easy for those deciding to change their last names! It also is considered one of the best destinations in the Caribbean, because it has a lot to offer, including a national forest, pristine beaches, shopping, hiking, camping, world-class diving, sailing, local artwork and nightlife. Of all the three islands that makeup the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. John might be the best to visit with its parks and extraordinary beaches. It is also less visited by cruise ships, so you'll see fewer tourists hanging about.

Believe in Romance in the Bahamas
The Bahamas is another nearby Caribbean destination for Americans, and provides for a romantic honeymoon spot for couples who enjoy being active as much as they enjoy relaxing. The choice of what type of scenery and what types of activities you would like to experience on your honeymoon is yours with about 700 islands in the archipelago to choose from. Enjoy one of the many high-end, spectacular, all-inclusive resorts that the Bahamas has to offer. Perhaps the most popular of all the resorts is the Atlantis.
