Every second Sunday in May, we get to celebrate a special set of women in our lives: our mothers. This Mother’s Day step it up a notch and treat your mom to an outing she will remember forever. To start the morning, bring her some flowers, coffee and breakfast in bed. Later, surprise her with a day out full of fun, including lots of clues to get her excited for what’s to come.
Here are five of the best Mother’s Day outings that will all but guarantee a fun outing – not only for your mom, but for every member of your family.
The Spa at Encore
Indulge mom with a euphoric massage at the Encore hotel. This five-star award-winning service will leave your mom feeling extremely relaxed and rejuvenated. Some of the services include an aromatherapy massage, Thai oil fusion, four hands massage and traditional Swedish or deep tissue work. If you choose to forgo a massage, the Encore offers services such as a relaxing meditation, airbrush tanning and various facials. Book your appointment online or over the phone.
A Grand Canyon West Rim and Lunch Tour
This might not sound like a traditional mother’s day outing, but this tour takes a stunning adventure through the west rim of the Grand Canyon. Additional tour options include a helicopter ride and boat trip around the Grand Canyon. The helicopter travels to the canyon floor and the boat travels along the Colorado River. To finish the tour, the helicopter returns to the top of the Grand Canyon where you will enjoy lunch with the rest of the group.
Located Downtown on Las Vegas Boulevard is a two-acre “boneyard” with over 200 historic signs from various resorts and casinos. Book your tours online for either a private guided tour that features stories behind every neon sign or a one-hour self guided tour that allows you to leisurely roam around the boneyard. Plus, the Neon Museum is a perfect place for family pictures.
Brunch at Zen Kitchen
Located in the beautiful Waldorf Astoria you can experience a weekend brunch the whole family will enjoy. Menu items include specialty eggs benedict, eggs ranchero, smoked salmon scramble and golden waffles with a caramel pecan cream. For a boozy brunch, Zen offers Bloody Marys and endless mimosas. Not only will the food taste amazing, but the location and views are one of a kind.
The Springs Preserve is a beautiful place to take the family on Mother’s Day. This 180-acre attraction features award-winning botanical gardens, archaeological sites and Nevada state fossils. There are several discounts that apply to general admission, including those for military, Bank of America members, Nevada residents, students and seniors. If you enjoy the setting, the Springs Preserve also offers a Mother’s Day brunch at the Springs Café.
