Experts at Next Vacay revealed that searches for “babymoons” are up by a whopping 233%. And ranking high on the list of babymoon destinations is Scottsdale.
A babymoon is a holiday to celebrate the arrival of the baby and gives parents a chance to relax before the birth. Similar to a honeymoon, but instead of spending time with your partner after getting married – you’re enjoying quality time together before your baby’s birth. Babymoon tourism has grown in popularity over the last few years, and with a boom in pandemic babies, it’s the perfect time to plan a domestic getaway before their arrival.
