We will be starting our honeymoon in Boston and although it is known for its tea we thought we could start the day with a more bubbly beverage.
The United States has 51.9 million acres protected within the National Parks - we won't be walking all of it, but we can make a start.
JFK said that Washington is a city of Southern efficienty and Northern charm. A night time tour of the Capital and dinner in a funky Georgetown restaurant should help us test this theory.
Monticello: a plantation built by slaves for one of the most famous advocates against slavery. Help us explore the home and gardens of Thomas Jefferson.
Sitting 45 minutes south of Washington DC, Mount Vernon was George Washington's retreat from the hustle and bustle of American politics. We won't have worked quite as hard during our time in DC but...
Phildelphia is famous for the the Liberty Bell, Philly Cheese Steaks and its ice-cream. Once we've had our fill of revolutionary history we plan to move on to Phildelphia's more modern offerings.

Fort Sumter, sitting in Charleston Harbor, saw the first shots of the Civil War (in case you are noticing a theme). The city itself as the kind of Southern charm usually only found in novels and fi...
There may be ways to visit Florida without visiting Disneyworld but we aren't planning to find out. When you can finish your honeymoon in the company of your favourite childhood characters (and rol...
By the time we reach Florida we will have visited sites that document America's birth and its greatest struggle. It seems only fitting to end it with what may be both America's and mankind's greate...
