The travel industry says couples are packing their bags and going on a trip – before baby arrives. This may be as simple as an overnight getaway to week-long resort stay. We think it's a good idea, too. Couples can spend some quality time together, getting away from it all before the arrival of baby. We've got a few sample ideas for those of you contemplating one last getaway.
Some hotels have offered packages specifically geared toward the babymooning couple. For instance, the St. Regis Hotel has offered a “Last Hurrah” package complete with themed DVDs, his and hers massages, and a “cravings menu” for those late night snacks. To locate such a package near you, contact your travel agent.
Another route to take is to create your own sample package. Book your own romantic getaway to a place like Carmel By The Sea. Stay at the historic Cypress Inn, book reservations at the charming Casanova Restaurant, and spend your days visiting the shops and relaxing on the beach.
Go tropical to a Caribbean vacation. The Peter Island Resort in the Caribbean can offer both parents to be spa treatments, a beachfront suite, and miles of sand. Enjoy a picnic outside and enjoy the relaxing tranquility of turquoise waters, shady palm trees, and white beaches.
