If you’re looking for the perfect way to celebrate mom this year, why not consider a Mother’s Day getaway to the beautiful Outer Banks? You’ll find it’s a relaxing spot for the whole family to gather and enjoy each other’s company, while exploring all the Outer Banks have to offer. Check out some of these fun Mother’s Day activities to try!
Stroll in a Queenly Garden
If Mom loves flowers, the Elizabethan Gardens on Roanoke Island are a great way to get outdoors and enjoy some lovely blooms as a family. In May, you can expect a huge range of plants in bloom, including hydrangeas, azaleas, roses, camellias, and the ever-fragrant mock orange. The handicap-accessible walkways wind through dappled shade in a lush green landscape, in a layout reminiscent of an English royal garden like Queen Elizabeth might have enjoyed. You’ll also find Italian renaissance-style statuary, a butterfly center, a children’s discovery area, and an adorable gift shop showcasing cute items that might just be perfect for Mom, including stationery, jewelry, and teacups.
Get Pampered for Mother’s Day
We all know that Mom deserves a day of rest, so why not treat her to a massage at one of the Outer Banks’ great spas? There are a number of great spas scattered throughout the towns of the Outer Banks, so you shouldn’t have any problem finding one to fit your needs. If you’d love to treat Mom with a gorgeous view of the water during her massage, check out Aqua Spa in Duck. Nestled on the coastline, their massages come coupled with unparalleled views, and they also offer a range of facial and mani/pedi services.
If you’re considering booking massages for the whole family, or just prefer an in-home experience, check out Outer Banks Massage Therapy: they offer in-home massage services in the towns of Corolla, Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head. Choose from a variety of massage modalities and pamper the whole family in one go!
Brunch on the Water
Finally, no Mother’s Day would be complete without a fabulous brunch! Treat Mom in style at The Blue Point Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy the best of farm-to-table cuisine, centered on local and organic ingredients. Enjoy views over the Currituck Sound as well as scrumptious seafood and more.
