Weddings / Honeymoons

When it comes to remote honeymoon destinations for couples who are striving to get away from the chaos of the wedding, it is difficult to get further away than the island nation of Madagascar. The Caribbean islands and Mexico have been touted as reasonably prices and relatively close honeymoon destinations in the past, but the trend of more unique getaways is rising, and Madagascar fits the profile of a romantic stroll certainly off the beaten path.


The same endless miles of white-sand beaches that abound in the Caribbean also can be found on the island off the southeastern coast of Africa. The difference between the two regions is the amount of privacy and untouched beauty couples will experience in Madagascar. Rather than sharing the romantic trip with other couples while basking in the sun and sipping cocktails, Madagascar provides an option to step away from the rest of the world and truly de-stress post nuptials.


Fishing and diving during the day lead to enchanting sunsets and beach bonfires at night. Luxurious lodges evoke a romantic setting miles away from the stressors of civilization. Mingle with lemurs, bathe under hidden waterfalls and sample the local cuisine as you celebrate your new union in a peaceful and natural environment.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
