How to Plan the Perfect Mother's Day Getaway

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Right now is the time to start planning the perfect Mother's Day getaway. I have a few ideas for you to plan the best momcation possible on the beautiful, relaxing, Alabama Gulf Coast sun. First, you need to decide what the mom in your life wants on Mother's Day. We all love our kids, and of course, they are our world! However, many moms enjoy a combination of family time and pampered relaxation time. Balance equals the perfect Mother's Day!

Southern Grind Coffee Shop

To start off your day, I suggest a family brunch. There are several delicious breakfast restaurants to choose from in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach! I have two recommendations from my personal experiences, both of which allow for an easy after-activity with the family.  

The Southern Grind in Orange Beach offers a quaint setting with a lot more than just coffee. Afterward, the whole family can walk around and enjoy everything The Wharf has to offer. My second recommendation for a family Mother's Day brunch is Bill's by the Beach in Gulf Shores. Bill's by the Beach offers a great family setting with an excellent beach view. They have a play area for the whole family to enjoy ping-pong, shuffleboard and much more. Afterward, you can go across the street to the public-access beach to soak up a few hours of sun and fun on the beach.

Beach Club Spa

Next, Mom will need her personal pampering time. I suggest booking a spa session for her to relax. Take some time to check out the list of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach spas.  Be sure to book this in advance! Personally, I have thoroughly enjoyed a massage at The Spa at The Beach Club. It's so relaxing, and you'll receive the full-service resort spa experience.

Top off the perfect Mother's Day with dinner at the beach. This is a hard recommendation to make. Seriously, you can throw a rock and hit a fantastic Gulf Shores or Orange Beach restaurant. If you're dining with the entire family, check out Tacky JacksThe Hangout or The Steamer and Baked Oyster Bar. If Mom and Dad are going to enjoy a date night, I suggest Cobalt, Nolan's Restaurant and Lounge or the experience at Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina.
