For that big decision, you're going to need some help from Airbnb.

The travel website released its top travel destinations for 2020, and there are some amazing honeymoon destinations not to be missed. Here are the top 2020 honeymoon destinations that travelers love and honeymooners won't want to leave.

You can't go wrong with a honeymoon in Madrid or Barcelona, but if you're looking to go somewhere a little off the beaten path in Europe, Bilbao offers culture, dining and stunning architecture. Located in the northern part of Spain, Bilbao sits near the Bay of Biscay, which means day trips to the beach for you and your spouse. Bilbao is also a port city, which means it offers the best of fine dining and local favorites. This top 2020 honeymoon destination is home to a Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum — perfect for any couple who's dying to take in a museum.
