The honeymoon is a tradition that many couples have been skipping lately due to the cost associated with it. There was a time when honeymoons were the second most anticipated part of the wedding. Brides and grooms would frequently sneak out of their own receptions to get a head start on their honeymoons. However, in today's down economy many couples have chosen to fore go the honeymoon due to cost. Those first crucial days will be the cornerstone of which the foundation of your married life builds from. Why let numbers and money force you to miss out on this beautiful time of your life. With these tips planning your honeymoon should become less stressful and more affordable.

Michigan Honeymoon Ideas

Camping is an often overlooked, but considered an affordable honeymoon option in Michigan. Fifty years ago the Great Lakes of Michigan was one of the top camping destinations in the U.S. and still to this day has some of the top hunting locales year round. The intimacy of camping will help you and your spouse to further strengthen your bond and reconnect with the things that first drew you together. Bringing pillows and blankets can make it feel as if you are sleeping in your own bed. If camping in a tent does not appeal to you there are hundreds of cabins to choose from. Some are located lake side on the beach, while others are in the middle of the woods. No matter what you prefer, there is a location for you. The cost of renting a site at a state or national park will be about ten to twenty dollars a night. A few popular places include Oakgrove Resort Campground in Holland Michigan and Riverview Campground in Sterling Michigan. You can save further by packing and preparing your own meals but it is not a requirement. You can still go out to a fancy restaurant for a romantic dinner with a little bit of planning, also.

Traveling in the off season can also help you to save money in the long run. If you travel to your destination at a time when the majority of tourist do not travel then it is considered off-peak season. Discounts are offered to persuade travelers to travel at certain times of the year. Prices are slashed by twenty five percent or more in comparison to the peak travel season. Using one or more of these tips should allow you to still have a memorable honeymoon in Michigan without breaking the bank.

Reason # 1 The Motor City

Maybe I'm a little bit biased since I come from Detroit, but I think that Detroit is a great reason to visit Michigan. Ignore, for a moment, the decrepit old houses and deteriorating neighborhoods, and think of the city's rich, vibrant culture and historical landmarks. Detroit is home to "The Big 3" and "Motown" after all. I don't care how much negative press you've heard about the city, don't tell me that you haven't driven a Big 3 car or been in love with a Motown song. The city's current decline is certainly no reason not to visit. Just be sure to keep your doors locked.(That was a joke, by the way).

Reason # 5 The Sports Teams

So, the Detroit Lions haven't done so well in the past few years. The Tigers almost made it to the World Series this year. The NBA is in the middle of a lockout, so we won't mention the Detroit Pistons. The Red Wings are probably the most consistent team we have, and although I don't follow hockey, it seems like they're winning the Stanley Cup every other year.

Plus, there are all of the college teams - the Big House (University of Michigan) is one of the most popular sporting venues in the country.

For over 100 years, southwestern Michigan has been a weekend getaway haven. With its ample wide beaches and charming lakeside towns, the area of Michigan known as Harbor Country continues to lure weekend visitors. Since the late 1970's, it has also been a popular destination for wine travel fans.

Southwestern Michigan is only about 90 minutes by car from greater Chicago. Interstate 94 takes a gentle north by northeast turn near the Indiana-Michigan state line, tracing the route of historic U.S. 12. Back in the 1930's, this area established its link to Michigan tourism. The first town greeting you upon entering Michigan is friendly and walkable New Buffalo.

With its harbor and compact business district, New Buffalo has long attracted boaters and those seeking a weekend escape. Of the eight communities comprising Harbor Country, New Buffalo feels most like a true town and a defined destination. Waterfront development has been carefully planned and monitored, ensuring the charm of this community for generations to come.

Less than a half mile down the road is the fascinating and ever evolving Round Barn Winery and Distillery. As the name implies, part of the facility is housed in an Amish built round barn, which is frequently used for weddings and special events. Not only can you sample wine at Round Barn, but distilled spirits and microbrews as well.

The other four wineries in this area are also quite near one another, making Harbor Country perfect for an afternoon of leisurely wine travel and tasting. Free Run Cellars, Domaine Berrien, Lemon Creek, and Hickory Creek all offer finely crafted wines that will appeal to even the most discriminating wine lover.
