Boston Named One Of The Best Babymoon Destinations In The Country
If you are looking for a quick getaway to savor the invaluable moments of sleeping in, or going out to dinner, you may want to consider staying within the Bay State. Sixt recently published the 20 best destinations for a babymoon in the United States and Boston made the list.
“When you’re expecting, many couples want to plan one last vacation or adventure before their baby arrives to enjoy time together, just the two of them,” Sixt explains. They also detail how their data has shown, “Searches for ‘affordable babymoon destinations’ have increased by 300% in the past twelve months. Similarly, search trends for ‘what is a babymoon’ have soared by 250%.”
To determine the best places in the country to take a babymoon, Sixt identified six different categories. They then used these topics to examine each city. As a result, they assigned a score and totaled them up. The categories were; happiness, safety, leisure activities, scenic views, friendliness, food, and drink.
Boston Ranked #17
Safety was the category where Boston scored the highest (8/10). In addition, happiness, food and drink helped carry Boston to a final score of 56.
In warmer weather months, the greater Boston area certainly has a lot to offer. Walks along the Charles River offer miles of serenity and nice views into Cambridge. Historical tours by the state house are always fascinating. If the idea is to stay off of your feet, a duck boat tour is also a main tourist attraction.
If your babymoon intentions make you feel adventurous, beaches along the state’s south shore or north shore are easily accessible by car (and train).
Finally, food options are of the utmost importance when thinking about a babymoon. Being able to eat uninterrupted and with both hands will soon be considered a luxury. Boston’s north end will have you covered, where you can savor the flavor of every meal of the day. In addition to outdoor seating at some of the finest Italian food options in New England, dessert at places like Mike’s Pasty will be a highlight of your Boston babymoon trip.
