A babymoon in Manchester offers the rest and relaxation you need before the baby arrives, as well as picturesque views of the Green Mountains. Embrace this small Vermont town filled with big-city attractions that include the Backroad Discovery Tour that takes you and your loved one to an alpaca farm, a maple shack, and a Norman Rockwell exhibit. The American Museum of Fly Fishing offers tours daily, and the Bromley Ski Resort is the ideal place to watch skiers from the comfort of the lodge. Head over to the Lincoln Family Home, the Hildene, to see historic artifacts, or enjoy a leisurely walk through the trails that lead to the Lye Brook Falls. Get the pampering you both deserve with a day at the Spa at Equinox.
Opt for a New England romantic getaway for your babymoon, and spend your days bonding with your mate while exploring the grounds of the Sugarbush Farm or snapping a pre-baby couple’s photo on the Taftsville Covered Bridge. When you’re feeling up for some physical activity, walk the trails to see Mount Tom, or get in a game of golf at the Woodstock Country Club. This Vermont city is also home to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park where you can tour the historic mansion on site and the forests. Fish for the day with your significant other on the shores of the Ottaquechee River, and then have a romantic dinner for two at the Prince and the Pauper Restaurant.
Spend your babymoon surrounded by snowfall and the winter playground of Vermont when making Stowe your vacation destination. This quaint Vermont city is known for its heavy snowfall from November to April, making it the perfect spot to cuddle by the fireplace of your vacation rental. When the weather cooperates, take a walk hand-in-hand on the trails of the Stowe Recreation Path, or hike to Moss Glen Falls. Sterling Falls Gorge is a must-see when taking photos of your adventures before enjoying a romantic horse and carriage ride through the city with Gentle Giants Sleigh and Carriage Rides. The downtown Stowe area offers plenty of shopping opportunities with specialty shops such as the Country Store on Main and Laughing Moon Chocolates.
When you’re eating for two, Montpelier is a pregnant woman’s paradise with access to Italian fare at Sarducci’s and pancakes and breakfast favorites at the Skinny Pancake. After indulging your cravings, head out to soak up the historic charm of Montpelier with a stop in at the capitol building or the Vermont Historical Society Museum. A romantic walk through Hubbard Park offers you the serenity you and your partner may need, while the specialty shops in the downtown area provides you with quaint gift ideas for friends, family members, and the baby. Spend an evening taking in a theatrical performance at the Lost Nation Theater, or catch a newly-released romantic comedy at the Savoy Theatre. When you want something sweet to take back to your vacation rental, stop in at the Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks gift shop.
5. St. Albans
A lakefront vacation rental may be just what you need to calm your nerves and anticipation about your impending arrival. St. Albans, a Vermont city nestled along Lake Champlain, gives you the opportunity to sink your feet into the cool waters of the Missisquoi River or opt for a fishing trip with Uncle Jammer’s Guide Service. Walk the trails at the Burton Island State Park, or pack a picnic lunch for two and head to Kill Kare State Park to see the blooming flowers. The Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail is a popular hotspot for those afternoon walks before diving into the fresh seafood at Jeff’s Maine Seafood.
Take a quiet drive with your sweetheart through a peaceful and scenic Vermont city and see landmarks, covered bridges, and unique architecture when you choose Bennington as your vacation destination for your babymoon.

The Dollhouse and Toy Museum is a sight to see as well, and you can even pick up a vintage toy, doll, or puppet for your baby to enjoy in years to come.
