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.

Bar de Pla, Barcelona, Spain

When it comes to local, authentic tapas bars in the capital of Catalonia, they can be considered a dime a dozen. There are loads of options to choose from, so many so the average visitor to Barcelona can be completely confused as to where to even begin a search for pan con tomate. But one unsuspecting gem in the trendy neighborhood of El Born features a no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to traditional Spanish tapas, adding an extra touch of authenticity with the homemade cava.

Work and Play in Italy

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
