The Ultimate Babymoon Destination Guide
Before your bundle of joy arrives, it’s important that you and your significant other take a well-deserved vacation. New beginnings deserve to be celebrated!
“Babymoons” — or the last vacation right before baby — are a chance for you and your partner to travel to one more destination without having to have an army help you load the car. This vacation will allow you to relax and take in the joy of bringing a new life into the world. Here are the Tummy Cradle top choices for babymoon getaways — we had almost as much fun compiling this list as you will checking out one of the featured destinations.
For your safety, please check with your healthcare provider to make sure it’s safe for you to fly or drive long distances. We’ve picked only domestic destinations because it’s never too early to practice putting your health and the health of your little one first!
Walking along the beach, laying the the sun, and dipping your toes in the warm ocean — what could be better? Our first choice for the ultimate babymoon destination guide is Maui, Hawaii. This relaxing and romantic location will be the perfect place to savor the last little alone time you have before your new arrival. With amazing hotel resorts, delicious food (pig roasted over a luau fire, anyone?) and incredibly sights the tropical island of Maui is the ideal spot for any babymoon!
When you think of Arizona, you probably think deserts and cacti … but we’re here to tell you that Scottsdale, Arizona, is also filled with shopping, architectural and artistic culture, and so many notable sights to see. From fine dining to outdoor adventures such as golfing and hiking, the adventures here are endless for you and your significant other. If you live in a colder location and want to escape the harsh weather, then this is the place for you — especially for those of you too far into your pregnancy to travel internationally!
Lake Tahoe, California and Nevada
Did you know that you can gamble on one side of Lake Tahoe, but not the other? Lake Tahoe sits in the middle of the border between California and Nevada and offers the best of both states, which is exactly why it’s our third choice for babymoon destination. Whether your due date is in the dark of winter or peak of summer, there will always be something for you to do on your pre-baby vacay to Lake Tahoe. Skiing in the mountains (i.e., relaxing by the ski lodge fire) or lounging on a boat, the charming town of Lake Tahoe is the perfect babymoon destination.
Miami Beach, Florida
Known for being the one of the United States most popular vacation destination, next on our list is Miami, Florida. Miami offers a trendy nightlife, amazing hotels and resorts, and historic sights. The city is also known for their major league sports, such as football, basketball, hockey and baseball. You and your significant other can enjoy relaxing on the beach or cruise through art festivals while enjoying the Latin-Caribbean-influenced cuisine.
New York City, New York
New York City: where the buildings are taller, the lights are brighter and there are an endless amount of things for you and your partner to do. Whether it’s strolling through the Metropolitan Museum of Art, taking a ferry boat out to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, or seeing a Broadways show in the theatre district of Times Square, you’re sure to have a packed babymoon itinerary in the city that never sleeps.
Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and vast evergreen forest, next on our Babymoon Destination Guide is Seattle, Washington. Seattle has become home to some of the largest tech companies, but that has yet to overshadow its iconic skyline, featuring the famous Space Needle. If you and significant other are feeling brave enough, you can travel to the top of the landmark to get an encompassing view of downtown — there’s also a fancy restaurant up there!
Another fun and famous Seattle spot to visit is the Pike Place Market. There, you can not only find fantastic street food options, but also spend time marveling as vendors toss fresh fish from one stand to the next. Don’t forget to grab a cup of joe at the original Starbucks!
San Diego, California
San Diego: home to the surfers, artists, businessmen and everything in between. This sunny city boasts a vibrant, coastal culture, epitomized by its long list of historical landmarks and notable sights. If you’re looking for less bustle than a visit to SeaWorld Theme Park or the original Old Town, then you can spend your San Diego babymoon relaxing on one of its many famous beaches.
