Honeymoon Lake

Alright guys, So i'm getting married August 24th of this year to my girlfriend of going on 8 years now. Finally I guess but we were never in a rush. We have already booked our honeymoon to Hawaii but we are not going right after the wedding. Since its summer here anyways why waste the money and go to Hawaii during the summer. So we booked it for late January. Now we still need to go somewhere for right after the wedding so we are thinking a 5-7 day mini honeymoon.

We are located in Chicago. And I want the best chance for warm weather and warm water so we are going South only.

The 2 best options we have right now is Branson MO and Parker AZ.

As you can already tell distance is of no option here.

We are looking for a rental home to not cost more than $2500 otd. (other costs of trip not included in that budget) So that may affect how many days we stay and that is fine, But the rental home must be of current fashion (no old flower print everywhere) and have 3 important features. 1: A dock for the boat (Of Course) 2: A jacuzzi or hot jub outside 3: Wifi internet

This home is in Branson in the prestigious Tan-Tar-A estates area.

Just to give you an idea. We want beautiful scenery, warm weather and a few minor other details. So anywhere from North Carolina to Arizona is acceptable.

Please throw me idea's for everything from Destination Lakes to recommendations on vacation rentals to specific activities for those respective area's.

Thanks guys. I am really having some trouble narrowing it down.

EDIT: Example home is at Lake of the Ozarks not anywhere near Branson

I rented this place last year. Outer Banks NC (Manteo) This was awesome let me tell yah. Place had a hot tub, canal front, boat ramp right next door made it easy, was cheap, even an elevator in this place.

So clearly brackish waters don't scare me and my MC

Well, its still on Table Rock isn't it? You know that happens, you look in a city and then they show you what is close. Like I said. I'm not tied down to a location yet.
