If you really want to get away from it all and unplug, head to Georgia's southernmost barrier island. There won't be other tourists cramping your newlywed style — just nature, the beach and you two. The charming spot embodies the same understated elegance as its most famous guests — Carolyn Besette-Kennedy and JFK Jr., who hosted their super-secret nuptials on the island in 1996. You have only two options on Cumberland Island for accommodations: one of the National Park Service-regulated campsites or the 16-room Greyfield Inn, a secluded four-story converted Carnegie mansion set on 18 miles of white sand.
