San Francisco Bay Area weekend getaways for your Baby Moon

Sweet Escape: Bay Area Weekend Getaways For Your Baby moon Bliss

It was Spring of 2013 when I went on my baby moon. After a difficult first trimester, I had finally started to feel better. Just a little more like myself. And was still a few months away from the nesting instinct(that is a real deal by the way!!).

So off we went to our baby moon.

We enjoyed slow mornings, took nature walks, napped in the afternoons and ate hearty early dinners. With nausea at the bay, I was now able to enjoy my favorite meals and some new cravings that I picked along the way.

This is also when I got my first and only maternity picture. This will always be my regret, of not having enough pictures during my first pregnancy.

Anyways. Enough about me!

First of all, Congratulations, mama! Welcome to this exhilarating journey to motherhood!

If you too are finally getting over the nausea and fatigue of the first trimester and are ready to finally enjoy this joy ride, I have just the list for you!

Thankfully for us, the Bay Area is a treasure chest of weekend getaway with its deep blue coast line, magnificent wineries, charming little towns, and gorgeous mountain range that offers picturesque hiking spots, all within a comfortable drive from your home base. 

So, pack your bags and get ready to explore some amazing weekend getaways for your baby moon!

Napa Valley:

Before you roll your eyes and think that I have completely lost my mind to be suggesting wineries when I clearly know you can’t drink right now, hear me out.

Not only is Napa valley a wine lover’s paradise, you will be surprised to know the wide array of activities it offers outside of wine tasting.

Rent a bike at Napa valley or go for a moonlit hike. Rent a boat or laze around in the lazy river. Get a mud bath or head over to the historic downtown.

Go for a cooking class together or indulge in an olive oil tasting.

From awe inspiring art fests to summer festivals, Napa is full of culture, beauty and entertainment.

You will not regret heading to Napa for your Baby Moon.

Coastal Charm:

Craving the soothing embrace of the ocean? 

Well, you are in luck!

We are surrounded by cute little towns on our coast that offer charm, delicious seafood and some of the most luxurious resorts in California.

Although, you can never go wrong with the ocean facing Airbnbs! Sip your morning coffee overlooking the beautiful, vast, emerald blue ocean. 

You would never want to leave!

City Escape in San Francisco:

You will be surprised to know how many people flock to San Francisco to get their fix for city life!

Well, can you blame them?

Book a hotel in the heart of the city and enjoy a day exploring the iconic landmarks of San Francisco.

Or head over to one of their grand museums to get a fresh take on modern art. Visit the local galleries and enjoy work from some of the brilliant local artists.

Get on a “Food Walking tour” or enjoy your ride in the historical cable car.

Although the steeping hills of San Francisco are not for the faint of heart!

And while you are there, don’t forget the Ghirardelli Ice Cream!

Cute little towns:

Step into the story telling towns of Carmel-by-the-sea or Sausalito and travel back in time to slow living.

With European architecture, these towns feel right out of a story book. Enjoy an afternoon stroll or sip coffee in a cute little bookstore.

These are the perfect places to enjoy a laid back holiday, romantic dinners and leisure walks in some of the most delightful neighborhoods.

Don’t forget to visit their boutiques and pick something cute for the little bundle on its way!

Nature's Embrace:

Into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul- John Muir

If you are craving for solitude and peace and want to get away from the hustle bustle of daily life. Book a cabin in the woods and head to the forest.

Nothing lifts up mood and brings clarity to thoughts like the fresh mountain air.

Hike amidst ancient trees, explore hidden waterfalls, and reconnect with nature's serenity.

Tip: Pack a picnic basket and find a secluded spot amongst the redwoods for a romantic alfresco lunch surrounded by natural beauty.

Remember, mamas, even a short escape can do wonders for rekindling romance, rejuvenating your spirits, and creating lasting memories.

So, choose your Bay Area adventure, pack your love, and get ready to rediscover yourselves as a couple!

Please, please do not make the same mistake I did and take a lot of photos. You would miss this beautiful time together when you are knee deep in diapers.

And when you are ready for your maternity pictures, don’t forget to give me a call. Together we will plan the most special Maternity Photo Session in the Bay Area!
