Kristen R
Hi! My husband and I are looking for a "babymoon" getaway for sometime late spring. We are unable to visit in the summer due to his business being the busiest in the summer months, so my first question is, how is the weather in April/May? We are coming from southern New Jersey, and it appears through looking through temp averages that it can still tend to be a bit chillier up there, even late spring. Also, has anyone traveled here pregnant? I'm bummed that I can't partake in the wine, and am drooling over the afternoon port and cheese (though soft cheeses are also out when with-child, boo!). How are the restaurants and other activities in the area? Basically, we are foodies who love a top-notch hotel, looking for a romantic getaway within a reasonable distance, and we have never done Nantucket. The White Elephant comes highly recommended from some of our friends. Thoughts welcome!
