Top Mini Moon Getaways| Drivable from Saratoga Springs

April 22, 2020

Over the years, Mini Moons have become more and more popular among newly wed couples. We are in FULL support of these quick romantic getaways! 🙌🏻 Mini moons are perfect for busy couples who don’t have the time to plan a week long destination honeymoon directly after their wedding. Now this doesn’t mean couples that choose a mini moon don’t get to experience a honeymoon as well… They do, but usually its planned for when the couple has more time on their hands. We put together some of our favorite mini moon locations that you would be able to road trip to as soon as you say “I do”! 🥂

LAKE PLACID, NY. If you’re local to the Saratoga area, then you have definitely heard of (if not been to) Lake Placid! ❄️This beautiful town is only 2 hours away from Saratoga Springs, making it a perfect road trip worthy adventure for you and your new bride/groom!

CAPE COD, MA. When you think of a Mini Moon, we know most of you imagine a beautiful beach, crystal clear water, and all of the other aspects of a tropical get away. 🏖If this sounds like you, make sure you consider Cape Cod for your Mini Moon! With only a short 4 hour drive from Saratoga to Cape Cod, it would be the perfect place to relax and unwind with breathtaking ocean views.

NEW PORT, RI. Sunset boat tours, delicious seafood restaurants, and under 4 hours away from the capital region, we cannot help but recommend Newport for your Mini Moon! ☀️This stunning area is one that will take your breath away, while still being more convenient and affordable that a typical honeymoon.

BOSTON, MA. If you’ve never been to Boston, now is the time to go! Being that this epic get away is just a little over 3 hours from our area, we would definitely suggest adding this location to your checklist. Boston is FILLED with mind blowing history, amazing art + architecture, and tons of romantic activities for you and your significant other! 💕

NEW YORK CITY. If you’re more of a city kind of couple, we’re sure that road tripping to NYC has crossed your mind when planning your Mini Moon! Being only 3 hours away from Saratoga and one of the most visited places in the country, this fun and fast paced city will certainly keep you on your toes. You will never run out out of things to do + places to visit! Rooftop Bars, Broadway Shows, The Statue of Liberty…sounds good to us! ✨🍾

Where will you be adventuring to after your big day?! We hope these ideas inspire you when choosing a Mini Moon destination 💕
