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.



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.

Your Home Away From Home

Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood.
