What to Expect from a Napa Trip While You are Expecting
Planning a babymoon with your partner or spouse? Excited about a weekend getaway with your all-girl gang? Napa Valley is a promising destination for moms-to-be. Some might wonder, what’s the point of visiting Napa if can’t sample what draws most people to wine country? There is much more to Napa than vineyards and wine-tasting. From epicurean offerings and soul pampering spas, to leisurely nature walks and heart-warming art and music, expectant moms will find plenty of indulgences beyond the cabernets and sauvignon blancs.
Here are some tips for mothers-to-be to make the most of a Napa trip.
- Pamper Yourself: Relax and rejuvenate before your little bundle of joy arrives to turn your schedule upside down. Many of Napa’s spas offer special prenatal massages that provide the much needed relief to your sore back and tired legs. They also give special attention to expectant mothers with customized scrubs, facials, and other refreshing beauty treatments.
- Stretch your Legs: Enjoy a calming stroll or hike amidst tall, forested trees and tranquil landscapes. Check out the scenic trails at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve or the Bothe Napa Valley State Park. There are several other hiking trails of varying difficulty levels across the Napa region. For moms-to-be, this is an excellent opportunity to take in the beauty of wine country, while also shrugging off any pregnancy-led lethargy.
- Shop to your Heart’s Content: Whether it is quaint, handcrafted items for you soon-to-arrive baby, or artisanal knick-knacks for yourself or your home, head out for an indulgent round of retail therapy. Napa’s baby boutiques, shops, and markets, such as the Oxbow Public Market have much to offer to expectant moms, as well as their companions. Don’t forget to treat yourself to at least one bottle of the region’s exotic wines. Imagine how much you will enjoy pouring yourself a glass of one of your favorite Napa wines after the baby arrives.
- Satisfy your Food Cravings: Craving salty, spicy delicacies, or sugary donuts and cupcakes? From baked goodies, delicious spreads, and artisanal cheeses, to sizzling woks, fresh seafood, and exotic steaks, Napa’s culinary offerings are sure to satisfy your taste buds. Look up Napa’s food guides to plan your lunches and brunches, and make the most of your babymoon or girls’ trip.
