Honeymoon decisions.

We are going to go on a "mini-moon" after the wedding because Dan can't take a whole week off while working on his dissertation.  I can't decide what to do, but I'm leaning towards #1. It's been so long since I've been on a roller coaster.

  1. Williamsburg, VA - It is a pretty short drive from Raleigh, and Busch Gardens is open the day after the wedding.  We could have breakfast, be there by one, and have until 10 pm to ride roller coasters.  The problem with this plan is that rain could ruin the main reason we want to go there.  Colonial Williamsburg is fun, but it's kind of a been there, done that kind of thing for me.  Does anyone know of other stuff to do there?  I know there are probably ghost tours, and we would definitely do that.
  2. Asheville, NC – This one is the longest drive, but there is so much to do there in October.  We could go to Biltmore and do some trails in the mountains.  The possibilities are endless.  This is the most expensive option though since October is the in season there.
  3. Wilmington, NC – This is the shortest drive, and there is an awesome sushi restaurant there.  We would stay on the Cape Fear River and do ghost tours and other history stuff during the day and eat really good food at night.  I'm afraid we'd run out of stuff to do here at night because it really is mostly a beachy college town during the school year.

What do you think?

  1. I think you should choose #4. Hole yourselves up in a hotel and enjoy the blessed release of stress and immense happiness at being married πŸ™‚ I was exhausted for days after our wedding…But if I had to choose 1-3, I'd say go for… 3.

  2. Thanks for the comments! It will probably be between #1 and 3 because they are closer and cheaper. I'm thinking about making reservations in Williamsburg and cancelling them if it looks like it's supposed to rain. Most hotels allow 24 hour notice for cancellations. Then we would just go to Wilmington, where I've always been able to make last minute reservations online before.We think we will do Asheville for our anniversary when we can afford to stay at one of the inns on the Biltmore property.
