For Mother's Day brunch, Copperleaf Restaurant inside Cedarbrook Lodge is offering a buffet with cooked to order eggs and omelets, fresh seafood and shellfish, hand-carved meats, plus a decadent array of desserts. Be sure to make a reservation to reserve your seating!
While you're at at this eco-friendly oasis, pamper her (and yourself) and book a spa package from theSpa at Cedarbrook. They've got everything from manicures and pedicures, to hot stone massages, and so much more. The spa is the place to be for a relaxing Mother's Day.
Rhododendron Species Garden
If mom loves the great outdoors, the Rhododendron Species Garden is in peak bloom for Mother's Day weekend, meaning the garden will be at its most spectacular. Enjoy the beauty of nature, then refuel at the visiting food truck.
Des Moines Beach Park and Quarterdeck at the Des Moines Marina
If mom wants to take a leisurely stroll along the beach, take her to Des Moines Beach Park. Breathe in the crisp Puget Sound air, hunt for seashells, and enjoy the views at this hidden gem of a south sound beach. If you happen to be at the park around 8:30 or so, you'll also catch one of the most breathtaking sunsets in the Pacific Northwest. For refreshments, stop by the Quarterdeck at the Des Moines Marina where they're serving up local beer, wine, and coffee alongside the beautiful view.
The Museum of Flight
For a good time for the whole family (and a nice freebie) The Museum of Flight is offering free admission to all mothers this Mother's Day! Mom, dad, and kids will have a great time exploring the history of aviation and spaceflight. Plus, this Mother's Day is a great time to visit the museum to experience any new exhibits which have opened to the public since your last visit!
Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden
Another outdoor option is the beautiful, Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden. The sprawling gardens are blooming bright for Mother's Day. You'll see roses, fuchsias, and daylilies, as you walk along a soothing stream of running water. The path will lead you (and mom) to the beautiful and traditional Seike Japanese Garden for a moment of peace and tranquility.
If mom has a sweet tooth, be sure to book a Seattle Chocolate Factory Tour! Experience chocolate as Seattle Southside's favorite chocolatier opens up their factory for an educational (and delectable) adventure. Mom will have a chance to learn about their sustainable sourcing, get a view of the chocolate making process from above, and sample a variety of unique chocolate creations. Be aware, tours fill up fast so you'll want to book your tour in advance!
Zenith Holland Nursery
Mom would definitely enjoy a visit to Zenith Holland Nursery, the oldest continually operating business in Des Moines which has been selling high quality plants to locals and visitors since 1907. If mom loves gardens and is a plant lover, then she's certain to find something special and to her liking from any one of the eleven green houses at Zenith Holland.
