We're going to Eureka Springs Arkansas. Its only a 2 hour drive since were on a budget we wanted driving distance. Were staying at a tree house for 5 nights.

Its $165 a night so we're looking at roughly $900 then a few hundred of spending money for food etc. We aren't big tourist more a sit around and lounge couple so that should be enough for us.

I'm on my phone but this is where we are looking to book at.

My boss reccommended it because her and her husband stayed there not too long ago.

Where are/did you and FI/DH go? Puerto Vallarta. Originally we were just going to do a trip to the coast, but I'm determined to get FI out of the Pacific Northwest since he's never been out of Oregon or Washington. Plus, it's really inexpensive!

What was your budget? We're budgeting about $1800 after all is said and done. Flight and hotel are going to be $1200, and one of the things we HAVE to do is the dolphin program which is a total of $300. So we're leaving about $300 for food. Definitely reasonable especially since we don't drink. :)

How long are you going to/did you stay? 6 days. We would be going longer, but FI's paid vacation time only goes for so long, LOL!

Where are/did you and FI/DH go? We are doing a cruse to Mexico (cabo and puerto vallerta) Cruises seemed to be the best bang for our buck in September because we didn't want to risk it at a resort in Cancun b.c of possible hurricanes. You never know!



What was your budget? Including flight to Long beach it's about $2000 total including food and drinks -we will sneak some more alcohol on board;) 



How long are you going to/did you stay? One week.

No pictures yet because we haven't gone. But we are going to Murrells Inlet, SC for a week and staying at this really nice condo-type hotel (I can't remember the name). It's near Myrtle Beach so when we want to leave our room ;) we can go do the touristy thing. Plus we plan to beach it a lot. We are also going for 3 nights in Charleston, SC to explore the history and food. I'm so excited! Everything is paid for and we spent about $2,000. So now it's just whatever spending $ we need/want. We plan to do a quick grocery trip when we get there too to stock our fridge because our room has a full kitchen. WE figured we'd save money that first week by making some of our own meals.

We had our honeymoon about 9 months after the wedding so we could save a bit longer and make a big trip of it.

Where: We went over to Vegas, road tripped to Colorado, Ohio, NYC and Florida including a week at Disney... (we live in Aust so it's a fair way for us to come) :-)

Budget: Flights, Accomm and spending money came to about $15,000!

How long: 5 weeks and it was incredible..
