Sharon & Ivan in Hawaii
Sharon and Ivan wanted a relaxing beach honeymoon, with some adventure -- but sans passports or language barriers. "Hawaii was the perfect choice," Sharon says.
Budget: Around $4,000
Time of Year: Mid to late October
Length of Trip: 7 days
Travel Time: 8 hours from Houston
Where They Stayed: Upon landing on Maui, Sharon and Ivan checked in to the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa in Lahaina for five days: "We could enjoy the sand and ocean at our convenience," they raved. Next stop: Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, where the location of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa -- within walking distance of shopping -- was also a major plus.
