There are plenty of ways to show Mom how much she means to you on her big day, which falls on May 10th this 2015—don’t forget! But cards fade and flowers wilt, so for an extra memorable Mother’s Day, traveling with Mom is the way to go. Here are five travel ideas that Mom will love.
Go Beyond a Box of Chocolate
Is your mom a chocoholic? Treat her to a Gourmet Chocolate Tasting Tour in San Franciso—a city as full of chocolate artisans as it is of artists.
For an all over chocolate experience, take Mom to Hershey, PA to The Spa at Hershey Hotel. Indulge her in the Chocolate Escape Package, where she can enjoy a whipped cocoa bath or chocolate sugar scrub. She can have herself pampered in chocolate, and eat it too.
Take a Cooking Class
Whether or not your Mom taught you everything you know in the kitchen, why not take a cooking class together to create a memory and recipe that you both will remember forever?
Sur la Table is offering a Mother’s Day Macarons class in locations all over the country. If you really want to share an authentic culinary experience with Mom, take a class in the culinary meccas of France or Italy to create her favorite cuisine.
If your mother is a fan of wine, take her to Napa or Sonoma Valley, CA and indulge in a day (or weekend) of wine tasting. She can kick off the summer season and taste Rose, Rieslings, and sparkling wines at the First Blush Tasting at the Meritage Resort in Napa. Stay for the Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch on the Vineyard Terrace on Sunday.
Take in a Broadway Show with Mom
Alternatively, catch a show in the great theatre city of Chicago, or entertainment capital Las Vegas.
Don’t Stop at Just a Bouquet
While a bouquet is nice, treat Mom to a stroll through gardens and gardens of new Spring blooms at the beautiful Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Afterward, enjoy a Mother’s Day Brunch at the Vanderbilt Room or Deerpark restaurant, or an afternoon of tea and scones at the estate’s Library Lounge.
