5 things to do with mom this Mother’s Day
GO TO A MOVIE
“Mother’s Day,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson and Julia Roberts, is currently showing at Heavenly Village Cinemas at 4:45 p.m., 7:20 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Celebrate Mother’s Day with South Shore fun in mind this Sunday, May 8. Here are five ideas:
1. Get outside
According to Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority’s executive director Carol Chaplin, “Happy moms are exercised moms!”
Chaplin suggests going on a run or bike ride along Powerline Trail, on a cruiser ride along the bike path to Camp Richardson Historic Resort and Marina, or a hike at Van Sickle Bi-State Park. Natasha Schue of Barton Health suggests hiking to Cascade Falls for a picnic as another fun Mother’s Day activity.
Take mom out to eat somewhere special — and get some much-needed family facetime. Since Mother’s Day is generally busy for restaurants, you’ll likely want to make a reservation.
Chaplin suggests Riva Grill, The Landing Resort and Spa, Park Prime at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe, and the MS Dixie II cruise.
Emily Abernathy of Tahoe Chamber said Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course is not doing its Mom’s Day brunch this year due to construction.
Heavenly Village, The Chateau and the Village Center are all good options for an afternoon of retail therapy.
4. Spa treatment
Whether it’s a manicure and pedicure or a hot-rock massage, booking spa treatments for mom is a thoughtful way to help her relax. Do it together as a bonding activity or buy her a gift certificate. There are too many spa locations to mention around the lake — so pick your favorite and make a reservation.
5. A thoughtful phone call and flowers
Even if your mother doesn’t live in town, there’s still opportunity to make her feel special with a phone call and flower delivery. If you haven’t ordered flowers yet, you better get on it.
