Honeymoons on the Cheap

SPRING



Snowmobiling in Iceland.  

KEY
Beach ...   Adventure ...    Snow ...    City ...

Vancouver, British Columbia
Connected to the rest of downtown by a causeway, the once-industrial Granville Island is now the city’s culture hub, with artists’ studios, galleries, theaters, and shops. Eat your way through its vast Public Market, a retro-fitted factory that brims with fresh fare ranging from coho salmon and morels to stinging nettles and passion fruit.
Stay at: Shangri-La, Vancouver (from $415; shangri-la.com).
Get there: 6-hour flight; from $720.

Austin, Texas
No trip to Austin is complete without a dose of country music, so test out your two-step at the Broken Spoke; their chicken-fried steak pairs perfectly with live honky-tonk. If it’s the second Sunday of the month, drive 40 miles south to the refreshingly ungentrified Gruene Hall for a rollicking gospel brunch.
Stay at: The Kimber Modern (from $250; kimbermodern.com).
Get there: 4-hour flight; from $726.

Reykjavik, Iceland
Explore ice caves and snowmobile over glaciers with a Mountaineers of Iceland tour, then uncramp your muscles by plunging in the steaming, geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon.
Stay at: CenterHotel Thingholt (from $280; centerhotels.is).
Get there: 6-hour flight; from $1,428.

Aspen, Colorado
Aspen in the springtime is for hikers. Set out for Smuggler Mountain Road trail—just a short walk from the main drag—and follow it through long switchbacks and aspen groves to a grand lookout over the town framed by the Rockies.
Stay at: The Little Nell (from $330; thelittlenell.com).
Get there: 5.5-hour flight via Denver; from $656.

Little Corn Island, Nicaragua
Disconnect on Little Corn Island, a car-free isle that’s 40 miles off the Nicaraguan coast. Nab a palm-shaded table at Habana Libre, and savor the slow-roasted pork or jalapeño lobster en plein air.
Stay at: Casitas at Casa Iguana (from $65; casaiguana.net).
Get there: 8.5-hour flight via Managua; from $958.
