Mother's Day 

Treat the special lady or ladies in your life to a luxurious spa day topped with crisp champagne, a decadent brunch along the yacht-filled Intracoastal Waterway, a Broadway musical at a local performing arts venue, or a weekend-long getaway at a beachfront resort

Here in Greater Fort Lauderdale, it’s easy to spoil the women in your life (including yourself) on Mother’s Day.

Delicious Bites & Libations

One of the best ways to celebrate Mother’s Day is with a table reservation at a delicious restaurant, many of which feature holiday specials for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Whether you want sushi, tapas, or pizza, you will find countless cuisine options from Las Olas Boulevard to downtown Hollywood.

For a wine-filled afternoon or night, say cheers to a local wine bar or go bar hopping. Or hit up a local speakeasy with Instagram-worthy cocktails and intimate vibes your nightlife-loving mom or mom figure is sure to love.

Shops, Spas & Beaches

Another great way to celebrate the holiday is with retail therapy. Check out area malls, outlets, and open-air shopping districts featuring brand-name and locally-owned boutiques and stores. Find more local goods at one of the many farmers markets featuring dozens of arts and crafts and produce vendors. And if you’re a dog mom, you may be able to bring your pup along.

If a spa day is in the cards, book a facial or hot stone massage at a day or resort spa, and feel your stress give way to the salty air and herbal scents. 

For more salty air, find 24 miles of beaches perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and bonding with mom. Or try a watersport activity from stand-up paddleboarding and snorkeling to boating and kayaking.

After a long day of your selected activities, treat yourself and your mom and/or other ladies to a stay at a beachfront hotel or resort, and enjoy the celebration a little longer.
