Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, and you have a few options to make it special. You can send your mom flowers, which she’ll have for about a week, or you can give her an experience she’ll never forget by treating her to a day out in the amazing city we call San Antonio.
The best days start with brunch, and literally hundreds of restaurants in San Antonio offer Mother’s Day specials. If your Mother wants the best authentic Mexican food in San Antonio, try El Papalote Taco & Grill, where moms can get a free gelato with their meal throughout the entire month of May. If she can’t make up her mind, find something to please everyone at the Indian Oven’s all-you-can-eat-and-drink Mother’s Day Grand Champagne Buffet.
The only way to make sure you see all of San Antonio in a single day is to take to the sky. Alamo Helicopters is one of several companies that give sky tours of the River City. Their flights provide a bird’s-eye view of popular tourist spots like The San Antonio Zoo and SeaWorld in addition to the gorgeous Texas Hill Country beyond the city limits.
If your mom prefers to stay closer to the ground, there are just as many options to explore San Antonio by foot or by boat. The Botanical Garden takes up 33 acres of land and is home to over ten thousand plant species in bloom all year long. For the more adventurous mothers, a hiking trip through Longhorn Caverns may make her day. For the aquatically inclined, Rio San Antonio Cruises take riders on a journey through the Alamo City’s illustrious history via the waterways of the famous San Antonio River Walk.
After a long day, why not wind down together with a massage? SpaFinder sells gift certificates that can be redeemed at thousands of facilities in cities across the globe, so you can make your purchase now and let her decide where to spend it. If she loves trying new beauty trends, head over to Amazing Lash Studios in San Antonio and try those luscious lashes that are so popular. Your mom will love her new look.
The best gift you can give your mom is memories, and your time spent together on Mother’s Day in San Antonio will deliver a Mother’s Day your mom will never forget.
