It might seem like a lot of fun to take an exotic trip to Hawaii or Europe, but these locations may not be within your budget or might even sound cliché. The truth is that you can experience an amazing and simultaneously economical honeymoon in many locations within the Midwest, where the winters typically provide a snowy landscape for hilly skiing and “winter wonderland” visuals, while the spring or summer seasons make the idea of soaking in an outdoor hot tub and sipping a bottle of Cristal as enticing as it could get.
