Whether you want a relaxing time or like to be more active on your stay, the state of New York can cater for both tastes. Why not spend the first week in the city itself exploring all the many famous, museums, galleries, landmarks and Broadway shows that NYC has to offer. Then for the second week why not take a trip to the north of the state to the awe inspiring Adirondack region. Whatever you decide, New York can deliver.
A honeymoon in New York is unlike any other destination that you might consider and flights here from Johannesburg fly directly into New York (JFK), which means that you could be enjoying everything that New York has to offer in a little over 16 hours. So what do you do when you get here? On the one hand you have the amazing vibrant city itself, where you can take in such landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Guggenheim Museum to name but a few. Stay in a swanky hotel in down town Manhattan and soak up the atmosphere. On the other hand, travel out of the city, and you're into the fabulous countryside of the Adirondack region. Here you can stay in your own private lakeside lodge, where if you are lucky enough, you will see herons, moose and grazing deer from your balcony. It also offers opportunities for hiking and mountain biking. Finally if you want a really stunning backdrop then a trip up to the awe inspiring Niagara Falls is a must.
