When you’re wondering where to go for the best honeymoon experience in March or April, some defensive planning is in order to avoid the spring break hordes. Although weather is variable in early spring, and higher elevations are cooler than low-lying areas, odds are good that you will find comfortable weather during your honeymoon in the following destinations.
Consider a romantic honeymoon cruise through the Netherlands that starts and ends in Amsterdam. March and April are prime time for its annual floral extravaganza. The highlight of this journey will be an excursion from the port to Keukenhof Gardens, a 70-acre park outside of the city. En route are endless fields of tulips and modern windmills.
Wander through Keukenhof to admire the 800 varieties of tulips, stop to snap photos, have an ice cream, or sit for a meal. In years to come, when someone suggests that you think of your happy place, this is what it will look like.
Since the seven-night cruise starts and ends in Amsterdam, you’ll also have time to explore its world-class art museums spotlighting Van Gogh and Rembrandt, visit the Anne Frank House, stroll along the canals, try out a coffeeshop, and trip through the world-famous Red Light District.
Palm Springs, California
A desert oasis that looks like nowhere else, Palm Springs became the place that Hollywood stars and studio big shots escaped to for weekends around the mid-20th century. They built homes that looked a lot different from traditional architecture. Mid-Century Modern style—single-story structures with clean lines, a flat roof, open floor plans, and sliding glass doors to welcome the sunshine—was born.
Couples today can tour some of these extraordinary houses, and a visit to Sunnylands, the apotheosis of this style, is highly recommended.
Make time to unwind in the Spa at Two Bunch Palms, swim in its boulder-edged grotto fed by a waterfall, or indulge in side-by-side, mineral-rich mud baths.
Best of all, reserve accommodations at one of Palm Springs’ most romantic desert hideaways for a warm and wonderful March or April.
If you’re willing to sacrifice sunny summer days for the ability to somewhat avoid crowds, March and April in Paris can be your best bet for a honeymoon here. There’s so much to see and do, and you’ll want to embrace it all.
Fortunately, Paris is relatively compact, which makes it a great place to explore on foot. Most major sights and museums are within walking distance of one another. Exquisite gardens, stunning architecture, cobblestone streets, beautifully landscaped parks, stylish boutiques, and lively cafés and bistros along the banks of the river Seine await your discovery.
For a panoramic view, take the elevator to the top of the Eiffel Tower. If you can arrange to have a meal there, arrive at the Restaurant Jules Verne just before twilight to savor the beautiful vistas.
First-timers will also want to see Paris’s world-famous churches, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Sacré-Coeur Basilica. The city also boasts dozens of fascinating museums. If you can only make it to two, the illustrious Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay—known for its Impressionist collection—ought to top your list. And the best hotels in Paris are destinations unto themselves.
Tip: To truly experience the true flavor of Paris, arrange to take a cooking class while you’re there, and bring home the ability to recreate some of the world’s most lauded cuisine.
