When you have a baby, your life changes in many ways. “You and me” becomes three, and any spontaneous weekend road trips include a well-stocked diaper bag. Who wouldn’t want to get away on a babymoon vaca one last time before baby’s arrival?
Babymoons have become all the rage. Like a honeymoon, they offer a chance to spend some alone time with your special someone because you know intimate moments will soon be in shorter supply. Here are the top 10 babymoon destinations for 2020 that will let you have a blast without spending your entire nursery fund.
You can’t fully describe the beauty of Glacier National Park in Montana. The water reflects the blue of the sky and the grandeur of the surrounding mountains so perfectly, you’d think you’re looking in a mirror.
At Great Northern Whitewater Resort, you can rent a private cabin and enjoy the wonder of glamping with your sweetie. If whitewater rafting isn’t your thing — after all, you have a baby on board — you can enjoy fly fishing and hiking. The resort features live entertainment on Friday evenings, too.
If you and your beau adore hitting the links, you’re in luck at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort, located near Pittsburgh.
