The Best Places to Vacation While Pregnantby Erin Schreiner
Just because you are pregnant doesn't mean you have to spend nine months cooped up at home. An array of places can serve as a supremely appropriate place to vacation while expecting. By selecting one of these beautiful and relaxing sites and taking some time off with your partner, you can prepare yourself to meet the arrival of your new child with energy.
Give in to your pregnancy cravings for sweets with a visit to Hersey, Pennsylvania. This town is, as you would expect, home to the Hershey company chocolate factory. Relax in one of the area's many hotels with your partner and visit Hershey Chocolate World, Hershey Gardens and ZooAmerica while touring this sweet city.
Take in the natural beauties of Vermont with a romantic getaway. Book a room in a bed and breakfast that is nestled up against one of this city's wintery snow-capped mountains. While there, sample some of the region's fresh maple syrup for a vacation breakfast that is sure to please.
Hocking Hills, Ohio
Surround yourself with rolling hills and fall foliage by taking an autumn trip to Hocking Hills, Ohio, while pregnant. Rent out one of the area's many secluded cabins and make relaxation the crux of your vacation. Many of these cabins are well-appointed and include a fireplace next to which you can nestle with your partner. Rest outdoors and enjoy the rolling hills and bright colors that proliferate in this area during the fall.
Newport, Rhode Island
If looking for a quaint getaway, consider making a break to Newport, Rhode Island. This coastal city contains cobblestone streets, New England seafood restaurants and picturesque ocean views. Select a lodging site that rests along the water, and wake up each morning of your vacation to the sounds of water lapping against the rocks or up onto the sandy beach.
If desert heat is more your style, make Sedona, Arizona, your pregnancy vacation destination of choice. Visitors to this city enjoy views of Arizona's red rocks, relaxing desert drives and lush forestry. Select a hotel with a cozy room built for two and enjoy your before-baby break with your partner as a way to rekindle the romance before adding to your family.
