Mommy dearest. Dear old mom. Momsies. Mama. Whatever you call her, Mother’s Day is the one day every year where we take the time to truly honor the woman who brought you into this world and showered you with love and affection. Sure, you should definitely get your mom a card, or, if you’re feeling extra loquacious, pen a loving tribute that brings tears to her eyes. However, may we suggest going the extra mile this year?
Your mom deserves the best, so why not try something new this year? If you’re at a loss about what to do with your mom this Mother’s Day, here are six local attractions and events that are sure to make your mommy feel uber appreciated on her special day. Plus, each of these unique offerings appeals to every kind of mom.
1. Bend and Stretch With Some Mother’s Day Yoga
Get up bright and early and head over to the beautiful Araceli Lavender Farm in Dixon, CA for some Mother’s Day Yoga. You don’t have to be a yoga guru, as this 75-minute, gentle flow class is designed for all skill levels. Just bring your mat and wear some comfy clothes. If the intoxicating lavender farm is too irresistible to leave once the class is complete, stick around to enjoy a Mother’s Day picnic.
2. Anyone for Tea?
For the classic mother, nothing beats a Mother’s Day Formal Tea. Hosted by Nautilus Tea Company in Fair Oaks, CA, this posh event lets you and your mom enjoy your favorite tea offerings along with dainty finger sandwiches, scones and delicious desserts.
3. All Aboard!
Take your mom cruising down the lovely Sacramento River as you spend the afternoon enjoying a Mother’s Day River Cruise. Learn some fascinating tidbits about Sacramento’s legendary history as you sail past one notable site after another. It’s the perfect way to get out and enjoy some beautiful weather with your mom.
4. Let the Hilarity Ensue
Some moms are not about tea and scones or historic tours. They just want to let their hair down and laugh and laugh and laugh. If that describes your mom, then you won’t want to miss the Mother’s Day Comedy Showcase with Justin Rivera. The show features mama comics and papa comics alike as well as the “comedian’s magician” Justin Rivera, all hitting the stage for one epic show.
5. Relax, Drink and Color
At the Mother’s Day Color Between the Wines event, you and mom can combine two of the most relaxing pastimes there are — drinking wine and coloring. You each will get your own coloring book, colored pencils plus some delicious wine and snacks. Coloring isn’t just for kids anymore.
6. A Family-Friendly Mystery for All Ages
Don’t settle for the same old dull Mother’s Day activities. Instead, try something completely outside of the box. If your mom hasn’t tried out an escape room yet, then give her the gift of her own personal adventure. At Exit Strategy Games, our guests enjoy their own private escape room experience. Work with your mom and family to discover clues, solve puzzles and escape the room before the clock runs down.
We also feature a new family-friendly room appropriate for all ages. So, if you have little sleuths in tow, be sure to book our Pet Snatched escape room.
