Cruise the Greek Islands. It think it was about $3500 in 1997. Unbelievable trip. Did the Athens thing for 2 days then island hoped on one of those cheap Greek cruise lines, you know, the ones that sink all the time..lol. Went to Santorini, Mykonos and Rhodes. Swimsuit optional (just bring sunscreen)

I think you should stay local and enjoy the beauty and romance of the area

Go to Asheville walk the gorgeous streets and get one of the nice packages offered by the Biltmore Estates. Most of the packages include
Accommodations
Valet Parking
Estate admission for the length of your stay
Estate Transportation
And each package has various special things added on also find a local spa to pamper during your stay. Inn on Biltmore Estate - Year-round Packages

Then on second half your trip drive up to Bryson City NC and enjoy a romantic dinner train or mystery train.
With the romance and mystique of an era gone by, guests on board the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad will enjoy scenic train journeys across fertile valleys, into tunnels and through
river gorges in a spectacular region called The Great Smoky Mountains. This section of western North Carolina offers a wide array of ever changing vegetation and fantastic landscapes
here link to the train excursion packages and at the top under special events details on the dinner and mystery train.

Great Smoky Mountain Railroad Reservations - Packages (http://www.gsmr.com/reservations/packages.php - broken link)

End your trip on the Tennessee River on a river boat in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga Riverboat: Chattanooga, Tennessee, The Southern Belle, Vacations, Attractions, TN, Dinner Cruises, Riverboat, Dining, Tours, Weddings, food, drink

More bang for you buck and it's the most biologically diverse country in the world: Costa Rica!! My wife and I went there for our honeymoon September '06 and spent approx. $3500 for 12 days!!! $3000 will get ya'll 8-9 days. Volcanoes, 2 oceans, beautiful beaches, volcanic hot springs, tropical jungles, monkeys, coati mundies, 100s of species birds, butterflies, mammals, reptiles, and more things to do then you can imagine.

Why go to the same stale places EVERYONE goes too? Costa Rica is amazing and you'll never regret. In fact, you'll not be able to wait to go back! We wanted to move down there!

If you PM, I'll send you our honeymoon pics.

I hear Costa Rica is amazing, but the Bahamas was great, too. My husband and I eloped there - we stayed at Atlantis, which was truly amazing (very friendly service and outstanding food), and we were married on a private beach in Nassau at sunset.

I think US Airways flies direct to Nassau from CLT Int'l and then you take a bus (air-conditioned ) to Paradise Island/Atlantis. We were married in October, so most of the kiddies were back in school and we had the waterslides to ourselves, hehe!
