Featured Semifinal Matchup:

(2) Paris


The "City of Love" is truly one of the world's top honeymoon destinations. Complete with charming streets, iconic structures, glorious palaces, beautiful parks, and superb cuisine, Paris is a magical place for newlyweds to spend their first days as a married couple. The options for romantic experiences are endless, whether it's a picnic in Parc des Buttes Chaumont, window-shopping along avenue Montaigne, or biking along the Seine.


(6) St. Lucia


With its lush rainforest, secluded coves, undulating mountains, and vibrant communities, the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia has emerged as a magnet for honeymooners. Its spectacular scenery alone also makes it one of the most romantic destinations in the Caribbean. But then add all of St. Lucia's fabulous resorts, ample active pursuits, unique culture, plus lively nightlife scene, and you've got a world-class honeymoon choice.

UPDATE (4/11): In another bracket upset, St. Lucia defeats Paris with 56 percent of the vote. Congrats to MICHELLE C. for winning this week's giveaway and thanks to everyone for voting!
