Mothers and all things maternal are celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Each year most children give their mum’s the pleasure of breakfast in bed and a colourful drawing. Many teenagers have pocket money so spoil their mums with presents like perfume and flowers. But as an adult you have the ability to spoil the special woman that gave you the gift of life. Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to take your mum away for a unique vacation. Here are some destination ideas to spend some quality time with the person that loves you unconditionally.
The Outdoor Mom
If your mom is a fan of the great outdoors, take her to San Francisco, California. Just out of the city there are plenty of picturesque hikes ideal for the adventurous mom. Make sure she packs her hiking boots.
The Dipsea Trail is a challenging 15.2 Km (9.5 miles) that starts in Mill Valley, a charming town where the suggested hotel is located. Follow the trail to its tranquil end, Stinson Beach. The views along the way will have your mom feeling like she is walking in a dream. The highlights include the San Francisco Bay, famous redwood trees, and the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge.
If your mom is a newbie to hiking but still has a raving passion to give it a try. Then the 7.4 km (4.6 mile) hike around Angel Island may be more to her liking. To begin take the ferry from Pier 41 to the island. Follow the signs for the Sunset Trail, that guides you to the top of Mount Livermore. This hike also offers spectacular and un-missable views of the city as it proudly stands at 788ft.
