Hoping to find a memorable way to celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day? May 10 is just around the corner! Don’t hand her a bag of boutique lotions or pass her a boring gift card. She’ll be thrilled to discover that you’ve planned a trip to the Florida coast for Mother’s Day. The breathtaking scenery would probably be enough to impress her, but in case you need a break from watching the waves crash on the beach, there are many other activities to enjoy. Start by picking a good spot for your stay. Enjoy the sandy white beaches and the sparkling waters of the Gulf Coast or the East Coast. Whether you stay in St. Augustine, Fort Myers or any of several other areas, you’ll be pleased to find plenty of beach rental choices.
During your Mother’s Day getaway, don’t skimp on these fun ideas:
Shopping with Mom
Why not spend part or all of Mother’s Day shopping with Mom? You’ll find that Florida has plenty of unique boutiques to walk through during your stay. In St. Augustine, head downtown and shop in the Historic District. In Fort Myers, you’ll have a variety of outlet stores and the Edison Shopping Mall. In Orlando, check out Neiman Marcus and interesting shops such as Ancient Olive.
Spa with Mom
After a lifetime of soccer practice, shuttling and family dinners, Mom deserves a spa experience, doesn’t she? Before she slides on those sandals, take her for a foot and leg massage at one of the many salons along the beach. Indulge in a tropical mani-pedi experience or spend some quality mother-daughter time with a facial or body massage. Nobody wants to endure a body wrap alone, so make Mother’s Day special with this treat.
Brunch with Mom
Naturally, a Mother’s Day vacay should include a brunch with Mom. Take her for a tasty seafood spread at an oceanside restaurant. From shrimp and grits to a lobster omelet, the enticing recipes will be a delight. Of course, a delicious drink -maybe a mimosa? – might be called for, too.
