Boulder, Colo., is like the charming, quirky younger sibling to Denver, offering a lively downtown area and surrounding views of the Rocky Mountains. Explore the idyllic, brick-lined Pearl Street Mall’s galleries, cafes, restaurants and boutiques, and witness the city’s academic and cultural prowess firsthand at the Fiske Planetarium, Museum of Natural History and Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.

If you and your partner bond over a shared love of history, consider spending your honeymoon in a destination (or destinations) filled with historically significant attractions. These are our favorites.

 

Athens, Greece
While the entire country of Greece offers plenty for history buffs, start your honeymoon in Athens. The capital city is home to two of the most recognizable attractions in the country: The Acropolis and Parthenon.

 

Berlin, Germany 

Signs of its turbulent history can still be seen in Germany’s capital city. Visit attractions including Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and the remaining Berlin Wall. Learn more about the city’s history at the collection of museums at Museum Island.

 

Cambodia

During your visit to Cambodia, spend time exploring the ancient site of Angkor. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is an important archaeological site, containing the popular Temple of Angkor Wat.

 

Machu Picchu, Peru

Situated in the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu is an ideal destination for adventure-loving history fans. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Incan citadel is located in the southern part of the country.

 

New Orleans, Louisiana

The Crescent City is home to historically significant bars, restaurants, cemeteries and hotels. New Orleans’ history is deeply interwoven into its current cultural offerings, from cuisine to music.

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
