A babymoon according to is...

"A babymoon is similar to a honeymoon, in that it’s a celebratory vacation. But instead of spending alone time with your spouse after getting married, you’re enjoying quality time together before the birth of a new baby"

They are becoming very popular and Chicago, Illinois was just named one of the 10 best places in the US to take a babymoon. just released their list of the best babymoon destinations and Chicago ranked 9th on the list only behind places like New York City, San Diego, Orlando, and Los Angeles. What makes Chicago a great babymoon destination? On the site, they say...

"If you are looking to immerse yourself in food and culture on your babymoon, The Windy City should be at the top of your bucket list. With countless buzz-worthy restaurants and vibrant neighborhoods on every a live performance or enjoy a shopping spree on the Magnificent Mile. There are plenty of relaxing activities available too, strolling through the Chicago Botanic Garden or hopping onboard a cruise to marvel at the stunning Chicago skyline and landmarks."

I will say that if I was going on a babymoon Chicago would be fun because there is wayyy more to do there than just drink, which is why I don't agree with Las Vegas being ranked ahead of Chicago on this list. With the lake, the museums, the restaurants, and the shows I get why people would want to babymoon in Chicago.
