There’s a babymoon boom happening! Did you know babymoons are almost as famous as honeymoons and usually take place in the second trimester of pregnancy? They are a great opportunity for couples to travel and celebrate new adventures on the way, spend quality time together, and relax before the new baby arrives. Mom, it’s also your time to get that well-deserved “me time.” We’ve put together the top Key West babymoon vacation experiences and ideas for you to consider as you plan your getaway for two before you become three!
Relax & Unwind In Paradise
Parents to be, it’s time to plan that trip and enjoy a few special days of relaxation before the little one arrives. Choosing the perfect location is key to a successful babymoon vacation. You want to be close enough to where all the action is, but far enough away, you won’t hear any of it. A tranquil setting is a must, especially for mommy-to-be.

Plan a Romantic Dinner at Sunset
At least one of the nights you are visiting, make sure to plan a date night. One of the most romantic dining establishments in Key West, A&B Lobster House, is nearby and offers the best views of a Key West sunset over the harbor. This is one of the ways you get to enjoy the best of both worlds - a beautiful sunset with an exceptional dining experience.
A&B Lobster House
An iconic venue on Key West’s historic seaport and a night that is worth dressing up for. Dine overlooking the clear blue waters of the harbor filled with yachts from around the world. Sip cocktails (and mocktails) as the sun begins to set, and enjoy exceptional food with unparalleled waterfront views to match.
“A&B Lobster House has been providing outstanding memories for over 70 years. Our balconies have hosted accomplished captains, celebrities, and countless celebrations – and continue to do so.”
