For parents that are expecting, taking a vacation ahead of the newest family member’s arrival is becoming more and more popular.
And for those looking for time to rest, reset, reconnect with their partner, and get a last few mornings to sleep-in, the Outer Banks has been rated as one of the best babymoon destinations in the world.
TravelAndLeisure.com says “the best time to plan a babymoon is usually in your second trimester, between 14 and 28 weeks. And though you can usually fly up to 36 weeks, it’s always best to check with your doctor before booking that ticket.”

Watch the sunrise on the beach, explore the expansive and undeveloped coastline on Cape Hatteras, and dine on fresh seafood when you visit the Outer Banks. With 100 miles of beaches, there are plenty of places to sneak away for some peace and quiet.
Nature lovers should check out The Inn on Pamlico Sound, a boutique waterfront property located in the midst of nature.
The three-acre facility sits on a ridge between the banks of the Pamlico Sound, one of North America’s largest estuaries, and the Buxton Woods Reserve, one of North America’s largest maritime forests.
Most accommodation providers on the Outer Banks offer specific packages tailored to the expectant parents’ needs and desires, and ideas for how to make the most out of your babymoon.
