For Your Romantic Mom – Tulip Tour

Look: mothers love getting flowers. It’s just a fact of life.

There are two such festivals in North America each spring, one in Albany, New York, and one in Ottawa, Canada. At either option, you and your mother will be treated to a vibrant array of colorful flowers.

For Your Animal Lover Mom – Panda Tour

Let’s get one thing clear: pandas are adorable. They are bears in suits and sunglasses! What’s not to love? The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. provides a comfortable home for four giant pandas. These gentle, cuddly friends and their fellow pandas are an endangered species in the wild, and there are little more than 2,000 left alive. The pandas include two adults named Tian Tian and Mei Xiang, a young female named Bao Bao, and the fresh-faced male cub Bei Bei. If you can’t make it down to D.C. to see the pandas in person, you can check in on them at any time via a live stream on the Smithsonian’s National Zoos website (WARNING: extreme levels of cuteness). Don’t forget to check out some of the other fantastic museums that are part of the Smithsonian Institute while you are in the area!

For Your Fashionable Mom – New York City Tour

New York City is a classic getaway and has been amazing visitors for hundreds of years. There’s never an end to the activities. Whether your mom wants to stroll through Central Park or go see a famous Broadway show, she will feel like a superstar in the Big Apple. It’s a perfect vacation destination for anyone who loves the hustle and bustle of the big city, as opposed to the quaint, quiet scenery in nature.

For Your Adventure Mom – Grand Canyon & Yosemite National Park

Maybe your mother is more of the outdoorsy type, who loves going on long hikes amidst stunning scenery. You should take her on a trip to hit the double whammy of the Grand Canyon in Arizona and Yellowstone National Park in California. The Grand Canyon is one of the world’s most majestic natural wonders, regularly bringing visitors to tears (so maybe not the best idea if your mother is a big crier). Then, there’s Yellowstone, which is contains one of the most fascinating landscapes in the entire United States, filled with interesting rock formations like El Capitan, Half Dome, and Bridal Veil Falls. It’s the perfect place to take a family photo that your mother will cherish forever!
