You’re getting married! Congratulations! But, before you embark on a lifetime of happiness with your partner, there’s a few odds and ends to sort out. Namely, the big “W”. The Wedding. Well, we here at Roadtrippers can’t really help you with that, (but our buddies at SimpleRegistry can at least make sure you’re gift registry is organized). Where we can help out is with kickass honeymoon ideas. Sure, there’s always Hawaii, but who wants to be on a plane for hours and then spend a week relaxing on beautiful white sandy beaches…with a mai tai in your hand… Um, well, okay, yeah, Hawaii is pretty amazing, I’m not gonna argue with you there. But, why stop with Hawaii? There’s tons of romantic retreats, many off-the-beaten path, that are guaranteed to bring you and your sweetie closer than ever. So, we’ve teamed up with our buddies at Traveler’s Joy to bring you a series of blog posts that offer you alternative honeymoon ideas, catered to the more adventurous couple.

Here are our Top 5 Romantic Treehouse Retreats:
