Who's Number One?

Hawaii took a hit this summer when Modern Bride magazine released its "World's Best Honeymoons" survey, which ranks the top 50 favorite honeymoon spots based on feedback from a network of 6,000 luxury travel agents. Italy nosed into first place, with Hawaii taking second.

But not so fast: A subsequent Honeymooner's Review Guide found Hawaii still the number one destination for honeymoons, with Italy coming in 10th in its survey. According to Michelle McKenzie, vice president for the Honeymooner's Review Guide, honeymooners value Hawaii's safety and convenience, and the fact that it's a destination where visitors don't need a passport and the language and currency are familiar.
