Baltimore, Maryland, is an ideal location for an East Coast Babymoon Destination. Baltimore is known for its quaint harbor, making it a perfect babymoon option.

Imagine you and your partner strolling along the harbor hand in hand with your cute soon-to-be-gone bump!

Due to it being a significant seafaring community, The city played a major role in shaping our nation's history. If you are into Historical locations like me, then Baltimore is a beautiful place to land for a Babymoon.

If you are into seafood, you will love this east coast city. No Baltimore trip would be complete without eating crab cakes and of course, trying the Maryland blue crab.

Jump on the Baltimore Trolley Tour and allow an experienced guide to lead you through this culturally rich city.

However, if you are feeling adventurous and do not have morning sickness, you should opt for a harbor cruise at sunset and view this fantastic city from the water onboard Spirit Cruises. Also, be sure to take in a symphony at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

Dating back to the 1700s, the ports surrounding our Capital region are rich with our nation's history and culture. Keep in mind that the city can be quite busy and has tons of traffic, so for this getaway, I highly recommend staying outside the city in one of the quaint little towns.

Georgetown, with its cobblestone streets and Old Town Alexandria, is both historical ports that are still prosperous communities today. It was our favorite part of our Washington, DC trip recently!

We walked past a sweet little Inn that I imagined would be the perfect home base for a babymoon. (We had three kids with us, so that was a no go.

If you visit in the winter, you could have a prenatal massage in the afternoon, and sit by the fireplace eating chocolate at night! Perfect plan!

Plan your home base for this East Coast Babymoon in Georgetown, grab a meal at 1789, and visit the many museums and monuments in Washington. Multiple attractions call out to you, from Mount Vernon to Arlington. You must visit our Capital at least once before the baby comes and then return when your little one is old enough to explore this diverse historical location with you.

Visit Boston and explore one of the oldest cities in the country. (Are you noticing that I LOVE historical cities?) This vibrant city comes alive in the fall with numerous activities, especially Halloween events.

Visiting during Halloween would also gua you satisfy all those pregnancy cravings.

Check out all the Fall fun you can take part in while celebrating your babymoon in this East Coast babymoon destination. If you are looking for somewhere unique to stay on your babymoon, check out Anthony's Town House. This family-owned (for 50 years, can you believe that?) bed and breakfast is a turn-of-the-century brownstone that would be incredibly romantic for your last hoorah. Or you may be like me and like a stay in an upscale boutique hotel like the Boston Harbor Hotel!  If your pregnant belly is leading the itinerary, Boston offers a foodie experience ranging from delicious seafood to ethnic varieties that will make you swoon. Food is always my deciding factor when planning a vacation.

I am a huge fan of Chicago, we lived there for about a year when Geryson was a baby.

If you haven't visited Chicago, I say go now for your East Coast babymoon? One of my top tips for you is to get a Chicago Hot dog at Portillo's for lunch. I'm dreaming of one and wondering how a hot dog can be so delicious. Of course, you also have to have pizza. Wait, is Chicago all about food? Maybe…but you are pregnant, and I like food! After your stomach is satisfied, head downtown to the Chicago Riverwalk for a breathtaking view and a little workout. While in Chicago, be sure to take an Architectural Boat tour and learn the amazing history of how Chicago grew to be one of the largest cities in the country in less than 100 years.

While on your babymoom, take a little excursion and visit Naperville, it is the cutest little city outside of Chicago. There are several little spas that you and your sweetie can enjoy spa treatments. That would be the perfect gift to yourself!!

If you prefer a quiet escape for your babymoon vacation, look no further because Stowe is your place. This sweet town is located in a valley of the Green Mountains and would provide a lovely, cozy babymoon before the chaos of sleepless nights begins. You won't be disappointed, from the vibrant leaves of the sugar maple to the magical scenery from a canoe. Stowe is a ski destination but waiting until winter would be a terrible mistake. The magical season of Autumn in Stowe is worth a trip before the ski slopes of winter take over. Check this link for Lodging Options!

We would love to hear how you spent your babymoon. Please comment and share with our readers!
