Copperleaf Restaurant & Cedarbrook Lodge Spa

Cedarbrook Lodge Spa

While you're at at this eco-friendly oasis, pamper her (and yourself) and book a spa package from the Spa 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 from Stacks Burgers. 

Claim Jumper Restaurant

If mom is more of a carnivore, she might prefer brunch at the Claim Jumper in Tukwila! Located near the Westfield Southcenter Mall, mom can enjoy all-you-can-drink mimosas and a wide variety of classic steakhouse staples. You can book a table on OpenTable today for the whole family. After brunch, enjoy shopping at the Westfield Southcenter Mall with its over 140 stores and let mom pick out her own gift - after all, mother knows best!

Des Moines Beach Park and Quarterdeck at the Des Moines Marina

Des Moines Beach Park is perfect for a picnic in Seattle Southside

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. On Mother's Day from 10AM to 2PM, Quarterdeck will be playing host to a pop-up from Schuller's Kitchen, a local bakery which serves delectable sweet treats and all manner of deliciousness.


The Museum of Flight

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!
