Looking to get away for a relaxing babymoon? Explore 10 tips for US destinations to visit for your special trip before adding to your family. Learn more.


With a baby on the way, it can be easy to get caught up in the stress of planning and worrying about the small details that must be accounted for before their arrival. But equally as important, is making time with your partner to focus on relaxing and getting into the right mindset. Hence, the value of planning a babymoon getaway!

We highly recommend speaking with your doctor before planning any travel, as you’ll want to ensure you’re abiding by flying regulations. The earlier in your pregnancy you decide to travel, the better!

Where should you go?

There’s really no wrong answer, but we definitely have an opinion! Below are ten of the best babymoon destinations that are perfect for a quick trip. These cities offer visitors unique opportunities to relax and recharge in scenic settings:

  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • Oahu, Hawaii
  • Carmel, California
  • Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
  • Savannah, Georgie
  • Clearwater, Florida
  • Nantucket, Massachusetts
  • Newport, Oregon
  • Lake Tahoe, California
  • Palm Springs, California

1. Charleston, South Carolina

Starting on the east coast of the United States, Charleston South Carolina offers timeless elegance and a romantic backdrop for a quiet babymoon getaway. This is the perfect place for a babymoon vacation, due to its combination of:

  • Southern hospitality
  • Stunning architecture
  • Coastal charm

Be sure to grab breakfast from Park & Grove, a local farm to table restaurant which features delicious seasonal ingredients delivered straight to your plate. We also highly recommend booking a dinner at Frannie and The Fox, located in the Hotel Emeline. Here you can enjoy mouthwatering brick oven pizzas in a trendy lounge atmosphere. It’s definitely a great spot for a romantic night out!

2. Oahu, Hawaii

Looking for something a little more tropical? You can't beat the island energy on Oahu! This is a great babymoon destination because of the endless activities available at your fingertips.

Spend the day reading on a beautiful beach, steps away from your resort. Explore the Polynesian Cultural Center, sample flavorful cuisine at one of the popular food trucks in the Haleiwa area of the island’s North Shore, or enjoy ample shopping opportunities in Waikiki. Additionally, if you’re looking for a luxury spa experience, consider booking a massage with your partner at the Laniwai Spa located in Disney’s Aulani Resort. Here, you’ll be able to completely unwind while enjoying a specifically curated experience to bring you closer to nature and eachother.

No matter what you're looking for, you'll find it here.

3. Carmel, California

Carmel-by-the-Sea is a coastal town, located on a beautiful stretch of northern California's bay area. Only a few hours south of San Francisco, this quiet destination is often overlooked for travel, making it that much more appealing for couples seeking an intimate babymoon destination.

Situated near the beautiful and wealthy Pebble Beach area, Carmel is home to celebrated chefs and dining establishments, art galleries, tasting rooms, and more. The area is classy and cozy, all in one. The average temperature sits in the 60s year-round, making it a crisp and beautiful stay no matter when you go, though we'd argue that the best time for a visit is in the fall.

If you appreciate spending time outdoors, this destination is also just a quick drive to Big Sur!

4. Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Another popular babymoon destination on the East Coast is Hilton Head Island! This is a location where you can truly focus on kicking back and enjoying the scenery, as it is known for its stunning:

  • Golf courses
  • Beaches
  • Luxury amenities

Spend a local sightseeing day outside and enjoy the Pinckney Island National Wildlife refuge together, then continue to the Harbour Town Lighthouse and Museum. After a day of exploring, kick back and relax poolside at your resort. Overall, if you're looking for a relaxing babymoon that still has ample activities for you to enjoy as a couple,, this is the spot for you.

5. Savannah, Georgia

Filled with colorful homes, cobblestone streets and mossy oak trees covering the city in a cozy shade, Savannah Georgia is a prime example of the beauty that you can experience when visiting the south.

Couples heading to Savannah for their babymoon can enjoy leisurely strolls through Forsyth Park, horse-drawn carriage rides and delicious meals and desserts featuring popular southern flavors! We recommend a romantic riverside dinner at Vic’s on The River and delicious belgian waffles for breakfast at Mirabell Savannah.

6. Clearwater, Florida

If you aren’t in search of an exclusively quiet beach spot for your babymoon getaway, Clearwater is a spot to consider. While it will likely be busy year-round, there’s a good reason why! Clearwater Florida sits on the Gulf Coast of the state and is known for its warm water that is a beautiful crystal blue – perfect for swimming.

The surrounding areas of St. Petersburg and Tampa offer an array of incredible dining spots, coffee shops and unique activities. A trip to this city means that you’ll have something to do on both your laid back days and your sightseeing ones!

If you want an affordable stay in Clearwater that is on the quiet end of the beach strip and only 1 street over from the water, book your babymoon stay at the Hotel Cabana. This retro-style motel offers clean and renovated rooms, a central pool area and a great location. End the day by walking with your partner to the beach and watching the incredible sunsets right from the waters edge!

7. Nantucket, Massachusetts

This picturesque island off of Cape Cod is a beach destination perfect for those couples seeking rest, relaxation and a classy atmosphere to accompany it. Nantucket offers visitors beautiful beaches paired with eateries, quaint inns and high-end boutiques. Travel here for your babymoon and spend a quiet morning at the beach, followed by an afternoon at the spa enjoying a prenatal massage at Massage Nantucket.

8. Newport, Oregon

If you’re looking for a quiet, cozy stay on the West Coast, Newport is where you’ll want to go. This coastal city in Oregon offers stunning ocean views and provides visitors with calm activities focused on nature, such as The Oregon Coast Aquarium, The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse and State Park and various coves and beaches to explore. Not sure where to stay? This area happens to be a hotspot for adorable and intimate bed and breakfasts lining the coast. Which means a cozy stay complete with a view!

9. Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe feels like a gallery painting come to life. When you step out of your car, you’ll be transported into a natural wonderland that you won’t be eager to leave. While many people think this destination may be for only those seeking active outdoor adventure, there is truly something here for everyone. So don’t worry, if you’d prefer to kick back and relax in nature – you can do that here too. You and your partner can rent a boat and take a sightseeing tour of the lake or enjoy some s’mores side by side at a cozy campfire. Enjoy a leisurely trailwalk, or pack a picnic to enjoy some fresh air, then head to Edgewood Tahoe Resort for a spa evening!
