From the Gulf Coast all the way down to Key West, the Sunshine State is lined with some of the USA's most beautiful beach resorts—no passport, required. Here, our top picks for the honeymoon crowd.

1. Elizabeth Pointe Lodge, Amelia Island
This antique-filled, shingled inn just steps from the sea offers loads of value—hearty breakfasts, evening wine and cheese, even free parking—for couples on a budget. Spend your days exploring the island's 13 miles of beaches, horseback riding, kayaking, or exploring historic Fernandina Beach, an adorable, time-stands-still Victorian-era town. Don't miss Palace Saloon, Florida's oldest bar, serving the thirsty since 1903. We flipped for the embossed tin ceilings and in-laid mosaic floors.
