Planning a special weekend (or week-long) getaway before your family grows bigger? New York City is a great destination for babymooners looking for an urban escape. From fantastic restaurants and shopping to shows and attractions, there are tons of great ways to spend your New York City babymoon.

Things to Do on Your New York City Babymoon

Prenatal massage: While many New York City spas can cater their treatments to meet the needs of moms-to-be, these New York City spas specialize in giving pregnant women the attention they deserve, and a variety of treatments that are specifically geared toward their needs.

Romantic places in NYC: Don't forget that the point of this trip is to remind yourself about romance -- these romantic spots around Manhattan are great places to visit before your family grows.

See a Broadway show: It may be a while after the baby is born before you'll have a night to yourselves to go to the theater, so consider treating yourselves to a Broadway show when you visit New York City.

Go on a sightseeing cruise: Late in your pregnancy, the idea of walking around NYC all day long might be unappealing, so check out one of these sightseeing cruises and enjoy some time off your feet while you experience New York City from the harbor.

Take a NYC bus tour: Another good way to see the city without straining yourself is on one of New York City's great bus tours, whether you try a Hop-On, Hop-Off tour or a Sex & The City Locations Bus Tour.

Shopping During Your New York City Babymoon

Go out and buy some clothes at great baby stores in New York City. Looking for some cute souvenirs to bring home for your baby-to-be? Or maybe you'd like to test-drive some of the strollers you've been thinking about buying, but no one in your hometown carries them? Just about every major brand of stroller and other baby-related paraphernalia you can imagine is available in New York City, and some stores even feature unique baby items that you can't find anywhere else.

Check out maternity stores: Whether you're looking for designer maternity clothes or just a good selection of maternity clothes, these shops offer great items for pregnant women.

Eat some delicious chocolate: Many pregnant women crave chocolate (or at least feel that they have a good excuse to indulge from time to time), so consider checking out some of New York City's best chocolate shops to get your fix.
