Both are very popular honeymoon destinations for those around here that don't want to go too far.

I would suggest eureka springs, ar well worth the drive. maybe 3 hours.

I agree with Eureka Springs. Its beautiful this time of year.

We spent a long weekend there a couple of years ago. We stayed in a wonderful B&B. It was nice because while it was a B&B, it had its own private entrance, and breakfast consisted of a wonderful coffee bar in the room, equipped with a Kuerig, microwave and fridge filled with fresh pasties and juices, as well as snacks like granola bars, fruit and popcorn. No breakfast you had to go to where you have to force conversation with strangers you don't really want to talk to. We liked it because we didn't have to see anyone else if we didn't want, the entire time were there.

I got your direct message and will response sometime today , my sister was in the hospital just recently and my attention wasn't directed toward city data forum.

However I second the motion as far as Eureka Springs AR is concerned , a place somewhere between 125 and 150 miles from Tulsa OK. Eureka Springs has A VIBE LIKE A LOT OF SMALL CA towns........especially if you run into a lot of out of state visitors.

You wouldn't tend to think that AR would have a classy town like this , but low and behold there you have Eureka AR........I would take my MOTHER and SIBLINGS there when I would visit OK.. also try Branson MO....just across the Missouri Border.

Eureka Spring.....Not Eureka CA....

OK, I've given this a lot of thought. First of all, most of my honeymoons required room service and that was about it. I never was big on dancing, so a place where I could do a little rondelay or two step wasn't all that exciting to me, 'sides, if you get hot and bothered on the dance floor, you still have to drive back to the room.......and room service becomes important again.
I think if I were to marry again (at my age) I would want a quiet noninvasive environment. Maybe someplace where you can get a good steak not too far from the room. A quiet small lake to paddle a canoe on. A cabin where the deer are tame and willing to say hi without getting scared. Maybe a place to build a fire and snuggle in its warmth.

Now that I think about it, room service is costly and not all that important. I can damn sure fix a sandwich or fry an egg or grill a piece of beef. I really do know how to open a bottle of wine without sniffing a cork. and my evening drink can be a good straight up scotch or rye.....I don't need a fruity frufru concoction.

If I went to a beach, bikini clad girls playing volleyball might cause a divorce before I made it home.

Wanting to be relatively close to the house is always handy. After due consideration, I think I would rent a WPA cabin at Greenleaf State Park. Just east of Muskogee, lots of deer, small lake, canoe rentals, bad tv and cell service, more stars than you can count, get too bored there are some nice crappie there and bass.

Me, my partner, a quiet night and sunrise and sunset.........that is about all I would want.

If your idea is a honeymoon with "stuff to do" other than slap thighs and gaze into eyes and become one with the creator then I think I would do OKC. Good hotels, nice bars, good restaurants, museums, memorials, shopping, water slides, ferris wheels, concerts, rodeos.......lots of stuff available to keep you from having to hold hands or talk quietly or simply hang out together and be.........

Yeah. I think Greenleaf would be my first choice.

I think there's an outside chance the lady you ask to be your partner might have an idea or two (or three or four) on the subject. Not to say I may be very much mistaken. If so, it won't be the first time.
