The hearts of so many brides broke because of the pandemic. As Al Jazeera reported last year, the wedding industry took a big hit because of Covid-19. If you are one of the brokenhearted 2020 brides, you can make it up this year.

Considering that the Delta and Lambda variants are running amok, you might have thought of canceling your honeymoon. But you do not have to. You can choose to do mini-moons while waiting for your real honeymoon outside of the country.

Wedding experts have suggested mini-moons to couples as a substitute. But what fun is a trip inside the country? Oh, Ye of Little Faith! There is so much more to our country than concrete jungles. Let us take a quick trip to these places.


If you are adventurous by nature, you should not make the mistake of missing out on the fun in Hawaii. It is a little paradise that is a few miles away from mainland USA. It is a nice break from the rat race.

One of the most popular things to do in Hawaii is an ATV Tour. The ATV tour will give you that adrenaline rush as you discover the many wonders of Lahaina or Kauai. You can also ride an ATV through Oahu’s Forest.

If you are a history buff at heart, you must not miss USS Missouri. This battleship used steam to power her trips. She made history by being one of the warships to cross the Atlantic Ocean. You can choose to visit the exhibit in the Pacific National Monument. This memorial commemorates the bravery of the US soldier during WWII.

You cannot miss the kayaking and the zipline adventures. But if you want something milder, you take the doors-off helicopter ride. You can also choose to go biking or snorkeling.

 Las Vegas

You can also splurge on your mini-moon. There is no better place to do it than Las Vegas. The City of Sin is the epitome of excess.

Instead of engaging in excess, you can also explore the natural wonders in Las Vegas. You and your better half can visit the Hoover Dam. Some agencies include lunch in their Hoover Dam package.

If you are ready to take your adventure to a whole new level, you must not miss the Secret Burger Event. The founder of the Secret Burger Event collaborated with the top chefs in the country to give you the ultimate gourmet experience. Due to the Covid-19, the people who made the Secret Burger Event possible created the Vegas Test Kitchen.

Jackson, WY

Jackson, Wyoming is another option for the spirited couple. You can go hiking and visit the National Elk Refuge. The walk will give you the adrenaline rush that you will be craving. You will see the beauty of Mother Nature as you watch the elks.

You can also opt to visit the Laurance Rockefeller Preserve Center. This Park is a feast for the senses. As you watch the glorious sites, you can listen to a poem written by Terry Tempest. Or you can go hiking to Phelps Lake.

If you have decided to make your mini-moon into a family outing, Jackson, WY is a great place to visit. It has kid-friendly activities such as journaling. If you decide to engage in such an activity, your children will be provided with an explorer’s backpack.


For our last pick, we decided not to name one place. But we added this activity. With the hustle and bustle of the wedding preparation plus the heartache of having to postpone your wedding, indulging in a spa trip is one of the best ways to spend your mini-moon.

If you want to completely detoxify yourself and are not afraid of liquid diets, some resorts offer such a treat. They offer juice fasting, yoga sessions, colonics, and Reiki. A weekend in one of these resorts will guarantee that you will lose 2-6 pounds.

You can also opt for the more traditional spa. These resorts offer yoga, hydro-massage pools, and other rejuvenating activities. You can indulge in other leisure activities such as fishing, golfing, and kayaking. When the day ends, you will feast like royalties.

Planning a wedding is maddening. But it is worse when you have to defer your dream wedding because of the pandemic. Dry off those tears. You owe it to yourself to enjoy a mini-moon.

Your mini-moon can completely replace the honeymoon itself. Or it can be your little vacation after a disastrous 2020. Either way, you and your better half would enjoy this trip.
