Marvelous Mini Moons


Planning a wedding is intense, so chances are you’ll take a few days off of work prior to the big day to handle last-minute details and greet your incoming guests. So, if you can’t get away right after the wedding for whatever reason (kids, busted budget, burned vacation time, etc.), why not plan a mini moon? After you say goodbye to the idea of Tahiti or Paris, shift your focus to mini moons — mini vacations that are easier on the wallet, only require a weekend and aren’t far from your front door.

Check out these six special mini moons:

LOVE AT THE LAKE: Load up the car with wine and cards, and head to the family lake house for a cute, cozy getaway.
