My how things have changed since I was pregnant with my first child 30 years ago. Nowadays, expectant couples are sneaking in babymoons before the first child is born – presumably the last vacation a couple will get to enjoy alone until their child(ren) leave home. That sounds quite nice and wish we had been clever enough to coin the term and snag a babymoon vacation before our babies were born!
A recent article in Reader’s Digest lists “10 Babymoon Destinations That Don’t Require a Passport,” and it includes our favorite destination, Waterville Valley, New Hampshire!
Waterville Valley’s in good company in the Reader’s Digest list: Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, Maui, HI; Harbor View Hotel, Edgartown, MA; Sunriver Resort, Sunriver, OR; Bristol Harbor Inn, Bristol, RI; Bacara Resort and Spa, Goleta, CA; Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, Hilton Head, SC; Stowe Mountain Lodge, Stowe, VT; L’Auberge de Sedona, Sedona, AZ; and Madeline Hotel and Residences, Telluride, CO.
Babymoon. Honeymoon. Grandparentmoon. Familymoon. Whatever type of vacation you’re looking to take, Waterville Valley is a perfect pick!
