The nation's capital is known for its historical sites, but it is also a great place to visit on Mother's Day. You can start your day with tea paired with mouthwatering desserts and finger sandwiches right at the lovely garden of Tudor Place. A skilled artisan will also be of service to give your mom her very own silhouette portrait. After a relaxing time at the garden and touring the mansion, you can end the day with a dinner cruise from Spirit Cruises. Dine all you can and enjoy the views while cruising along the Potomac River.

Chocolate Tour and Historical Walking Tour in San Francisco

Let your mom experience one of the best chocolate and historical walking tours in the country. San Francisco is famous for its Victorian houses and gardens. Join the Victorian Home Walk and get a chance to see the place where some very popular movies were filmed, including “The Princess Diaries” and “Mrs. Doubtfire”. After touring the beautiful houses, you and your mom can now have a sweet tooth moment by joining the Gourmet Chocolate Tour organized by Gourmet Walks. Learn more about chocolates and sample some of the finest chocolates in San Francisco.

Art Overload and Mexican Food in Chicago

If your mom is an art lover, then make sure to take her to the Museum of Contemporary Art. After enjoying the exhibits, why not take her to one of the best dining spots in Chicago? Xoco Bistro and Bar is a trendy Mexican restaurant owned by renowned chef Rick Bayless. You and your mom can enjoy classic Mexican cuisine such as tacos and tortas paired with your choice of wine or cocktails. If you forgot to buy flowers for your mother, you can take her to Lincoln Park Conservatory where she can relax and enjoy the flower displays.

Pamper them on their special day by taking them to a spa. Time Out has listed the 20 best spas in NYC to make it easier for you to choose. A trip to the Big Apple won't be complete without letting your mom ride a horse-drawn carriage at the Central Park.
