Celebrating Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is all about celebrating moms, and the Bradenton Area is the perfect destination to express your affection and appreciation. From brunch to spa treatments, shopping to yoga, you’ll find everything needed to make your mom feel special and loved—with a little Florida flair.
Blissful Beach Massage
There isn’t a much better way to encourage Mom to relax than with a massage in a secluded, beachfront cabana. The ambient sounds of the shore offer the pitch-perfect backdrop as the Sea-Renity Beach Spa & Eco Boutique massage therapists work-out the stresses of everyday life. This one-of-a-kind, Anna Maria Island spa replaces the typical spa with a truly peaceful environment. Mom will also have the opportunity to shop Sea-Renity’s Bou-Tiki for jewelry, clothing, wellness items and Gulf-inspired gifts. Book early to reserve that coveted sunset session!
With a rich history of agriculture, you’ll find that the Bradenton Area is home to many working farms. What makes these farms special is that they often invite the public to participate in many activities, including picking fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Hunsader Farms is home to many ”u-pick” options, including seasonal sunflowers for Mother’s Day. Surprise Mom with a special bouquet of hand-cut sunflowers, or bring her along so she can enjoy spending time in the sun and cutting them herself!
There is something special that happens when practicing yoga outdoors, especially in the Bradenton Area. If Mom is a yoga buff, she will appreciate a session atop a paddleboard on the tranquil waters of Anna Maria Island. The seasoned instructors at the Salty Buddha provide all the necessary equipment, allowing Mom to harmonize with the H2O as she floats inches above tranquil, emerald water.
Shopping in the Sun
With more than 130 brand-name outlets, Ellenton Premium Outlets is sure to have nearly anything your mom desires. This open-air mall is perfect for finding that perfect Mother’s Day gift, or for taking Mom on an all-day shopping excursion. This pink-colored shopping destination features covered walkways, lush, tropical landscaping and flowing water fountains—not to mention some pretty spectacular deals. With stores that range from women’s apparel and accessories to home furnishings to specialty items, you’ll probably end up with more than a few items!
For the foodie mom, treat her to a special brunch at Chateau Anna Maria. Located in the Waterline Resort on Anna Maria Island, the contemporary atmosphere is the perfect place to celebrate her special day. Whether dining for a midday or evening meal, indulge your mom with the delicious, ”French-inspired food with Italian portions.“ May we suggest the crème brûlè pancakes or the croque monsieur?
Just off the Bradenton Riverwalk, Mattison’s Riverwalk Grille offers chef crafted Mother’s Day specials, an a la carte brunch and dinner menus the whole family can enjoy. The brunch features all-natural, locally sourced, and sustainable ingredients from small family farms and regional purveyors.
