Best Babymoon Destinations
Doesn’t a getaway with just your spouse before the baby comes sound amazing? A babymoon is worth researching and investing in before you expect your little one. This will give you time with your spouse to keep your bond extra strong and to discuss your future plans for when your baby is here.
(Note: travel prior to your third trimester for safety precautions and discuss any travel plans with your doctor.)
If sun, the beach and coconuts all sound appealing to you, try these tropical getaways:

Hawaii is such an easy going and laid-back island to visit that we can’t think of another place to visit for the ultimate way to relax. We suggest going to one island and staying put to fully enjoy what it has to offer. If you don’t feel like hiking while pregnant, look into visiting Kauai or Maui. Enjoy swimming and snorkeling or relaxing on the beach.
If you’d love to see many different countries but would love to relax too, consider going on a cruise. You can go on a shorter 3-day cruise, or getaway for up to a week or even 10 days. Did we mention how pampered you’ll be on a cruise? And, food, literally is in abundance on the ship, so you’ll be able to squash all of those food cravings too.
There are plenty of wonderful options to visit if you want to stay somewhat close to home. Consider these domestic getaways for your babymoon:
Southern California may not be as tropical as Hawaii, but it definitely is much more affordable and still can be a perfect babymoon. Not only does Southern California have many beach options to visit but it also has a beautiful coastline that you can explore on foot, bike or car.
Visit the San Diego Zoo if you need a break from all that relaxing to see some diverse animals and gorgeous landscaping. (Don’t plan on seeing the entire zoo- it is HUGE. But, do try and visit your favorite animals.)
Phoenix is a great alternative if you need to escape the cold weather where you live. Not only is the weather a plus, there is great shopping, yummy restaurants, fun museums and great hiking spots.
Austin is a great place to sight-see, hear live music and indulge in some great food. Pick a hotel that is close to downtown Austin so you can walk to great BBQ restaurants and visit their awesome museums and state capitol.
Best Bed and Breakfasts
If you are unable to get away for a week and can only squeeze in a weekend getaway, a Bed and Breakfast getaway is the perfect alternative for you. Warm, personalized service and mingling among guests is one of the perks of going to a B&B.

Doesn’t going to a B&B in Yellowstone sound fun? If so, this list is for you.
If money is a hindrance for you in planning a babymoon, consider a staycation! Stay home but do something you normally wouldn’t do with your spouse. Book a double pedicure for each other to get pampered, go and see back-to-back movies, finally visit that hard-to-get-into restaurant that you’ve been dying to try. Or sleep in all morning and binge watch your favorite television series with your go-to treats and snacks.
Although the point of a babymoon is to get away, more than anything else, it is to bond with your significant other before the craziness, yet amazing, ride of bringing home a newborn. Have fun!
