After months of planning a wedding, you may not be up for an extended honeymoon. Whether your financial reserves are drained or your vacation time has been swallowed up by wedding events, you could find yourself looking for an alternative post-wedding vacation. Enter the mini-moon. These shorter honeymoons can be just as impactful and a lot less stressful to plan.

Urban escapes are ideal mini-moon destinations, offering abundant entertainment and dining options and luxurious accommodations. If you’re heading to NYC for your post-wedding vacation, Nicole Czechowski, Leisure and Luxury Travel Specialist, The Travel Team, recommends building a little more relaxation and romance into the honeymoon with a few days in a more remote, coastal setting.

“New York City is a great option for a couple who likes to be busy and enjoys a vibrant nightlife,” said Nicole. “But I would recommend pairing it with two nights in Cape Cod or Newport Rhode Island before driving into New York City for the remaining two or three nights. By adding an overnight or two outside the city for some down time you have the opportunity to quietly reflect on your wedding before gearing up for adventure.”

New England offers quaint villages for shopping, beautiful beaches for relaxing and long candlelit dinners at local seafood restaurants along the coast.

New York City has really raised the bar with fun excursions during the day. You can embark on an adventure sightseeing tour such as a boat cruise around New York City harbors or a helicopter tour. These are great options for panoramic pictures of the NYC skyline and more.

Beyond the sights and sounds, there’s much to discover in New York City. The city is rich in artistic and cultural history and offers diverse experiences from museums and galleries to sporting events and live theatre. For foodies, New York is a culinary wonder with opportunities to experience the latest trends and flavors from around the world on every corner. At night, the city comes alive with karaoke bars, dueling piano lounges and drink mixology bars.

While in New York, don’t miss your chance to see REG’s latest Broadway production, Escape to Margaritaville. This Jimmy Buffett-inspired musical is hilarious and heartwarming and was recently listed by Forbes Travel Guide as one of the best ways to celebrate spring in NYC.
