I decided that my fiance and I are getting married in California and going to do our honeymoon there.
- I asked around and got all sorts of locations that people enjoyed.
It is such a big state that I had to pick and choose. I decided I wanted a whole blend of California fun. I wanted the city experience where you see the sights, eat at high end restaurants and try legal cannabis. So I have us starting out in San Francisco. Then after we enjoy the city, the two of us will go to Santa Cruz for a beach and boardwalk experience. Afterwards we go to Carmel by the Sea which is where our elopement is taking place. Carmel is such a quaint little town with cute shops, a beach and tons of picture perfect locations. After that the two of us drive further south to Big Sur and then end up in Santa Barbara. I think this will be a good end spot because Santa Barbara has everything we could want. There is city stuff like legal cannabis dispensaries, good hotels, spas and restaurants. There is quiet, quanti shopping. I also found parks, beaches and great stuff with nature too. I think Santa Barbara will be the location where the two of us are a little loose on what we do. I did manage to book us a really expensive hotel right in the heart of the city. It is our last leg of the trip after all. We will be a married couple. Might as well end the trip in style!
