Looking for some ideas for things to do for Mother's Day? Look no further! There are plenty of great Seattle Southside attractions for mom to enjoy. Have brunch, take a walk in the park or botanical gardens, relax at the spa, or indulge at a chocolate factory to make mom's day.
For brunch, take mom to the spectacular Mother's Day brunch buffet at the DoubleTree Suites. Their food is exquisite and their selection is unbelievable! From Alaskan king crab legs, to malted Belgian waffles and omelets, to an endless selection of sweet treats, you won't go hungry here.
After brunch, you've got some options on where to take mom next. Perhaps she wants to be pampered...in that case, take her to the eco-friendly oasis of the Cedarbrook Lodge. Book a spa package from the Spa at Cedarbrook. They've got everything from manicures and pedicures, to hot stone or petrified wood massages, and so much more. The spa is the place to be for a relaxing Mother's Day.
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 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 as their new exhibit, Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission, just opened to the public!
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.
Finally, if mom has a sweet tooth, be sure to book a Seattle Chocolates 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!
