THE HONEYMOON PLAN


One of the first things we knew when planning our honeymoon is - we wanted it to be a big adventure. No all-inclusive beach resort for us. 




And since road-tripping is one of our favorite things, we figured we would use our honeymoon as an opportunity to explore part of the US that we've always wanted to see. Next week, we will be flying into New Orleans, renting a car, and driving across various states.

We have a few key stops in mind with hard dates, but a lot of our schedule is open for exploration and detour. We will be gone about 2 and a half weeks, and we couldn't be more excited!

Below is a list of destinations we will definitely be hitting up. Let me know if you have any suggestions for places we should visit, or if you are a local business that would like to collab along the way. This will be a working trip for us at times, and blogging will definitely be a part of that. Feel free to contact me via email (courtney@prettylittlefawn.com) or the comments section below.

  2. We went to Nashville last June! These were a couple of our favorite places...Loveless Motel & Cafe for breakfast (the biscuits & fresh jam are insane), The Pharmacy Burger for dinner (make sure to sit outside so you can watch the fireflies!), Barista Parlor for coffee and The Hip Zipper for vintage clothing.

  3. Love this list Courtney. I live between New Orleans and Nashville - I'm a travel writer, here's my NOLA list - enjoy the most beautiful city in the world. http://bit.ly/1Ua1CRd

  4. This sounds so amazing!! My husband and I never had a honeymoon. (We got married young and we were broke) lol. But this is the coolest idea for a honeymoon. Explore all the places you've ever wanted to be. I was just recently in Nashville and it is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. I hope you and your new hubby enjoy your trip.

  5. MEMPHIS!! I'm a native Memphian! Hit up the Cooper-Young/Midtown area for sure and Overton Square. If you want the best burger hit up Huey's Burgers (there are a few around town) and Muddy's Cupcakes for dessert (you'll never eat a cupcake again). Beale Street is obviously a must...also the biggest Bass Pro Shop in the world just opened in the Pyramid downtown but if you go to the top you can look over the Memphis skyline (at sunset, I suggest). Also, be on the lookout for a free concert at the Levitt Shell for the summer concert series! Gibson's Donuts is highly reccomended for breakfast! There are tons of cool murals around town so be sure to be on the lookout for them (Huge I <3 Memphis one is at Cooper/Young) AND great coffee shops! City+State, Otherlands, Java Cabana, Avenue Coffee, Tamp and Tap are just a few. Also the Collierville Square is really quaint and historic. (Sorry I'm all over the place). Check out choose901.com to see what's going on when you're in town/for other suggestions in general! Or message me back if you need food suggestions! And come visit me lol. OH you must try Memphis BBQ...Central BBQ or the Commissary (The Rendezvous is a tourist trap). Enjoy your roadtrip!!

  6. What did you do for the rent a car situation? My man and I are looking to do something very similar (west coast though, as we're from New York) We'd love to just rent a car and drive like you guys plan on

  9. Brooklyn resident here. You should definitely visit the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club (royalpalmsshuffle.com) and then head next door to Ample Hills Creamery for the best ice cream ever (amplehills.com). Have an amazing trip!

  10. Have the best time!

    Nashville: East Nashville is the hip place to go! Head 20 min south to Franklin!
    DC: Def check out George Town and have coffee and a treat at Baked and Wired. Fishers Bakers is a great farm to table place right on the water.
    Brooklyn: Head to the Morgan stop off the L line for AMAZING VINTAGE/THRIFT- after all the shopping you will need some pizza at Robertas in the same hood.
    NYC: HAMILTON!

  11. My daughter was married here and all our guests said that NYC wedding venues are the most amazing wedding they've ever been too. I love the dark wood, the beamed ceilings, and the overall sort of great vibe of the building.
