As a mom, chances are you spend almost all of your day doing things for other people, mainly your children. While it’s certainly rewarding and fulfilling to be a mother, sometimes you just need to take a break. A mom’s trip is a great getaway idea because you can get away from the kids for a few days and connect with your fellow mom friends! Check out these fun places and book your tickets today.
Long Beach, California
Long Beach is an idyllic place to pay a visit. There’s lots to do that you can enjoy without the kids, including the newly renovated Long Beach Bridge, also called the Gerald Desmond Bridge, where you can enjoy sweeping views of the city and the ocean. You’ll also want to make time to tour the Queen Mary, enjoy cocktails on the beach, listen to live music, shop, and take in all of the art the city has to offer.
Asheville, North Carolina
This mountain town is ideal for bonding with your tribe. Enjoy the hot culinary scene and take in lovely views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The farm to table scene is also popular here and you’ll enjoy the revamped steel area, with its chic hotels and boutique shopping opportunities.
This little place is packed with small town charm and you and your mom friends will enjoy trying local maple syrup and taking photos of the town’s beautiful covered bridge. There are several cozy places to stay, as well as a gourmet restaurant and a tavern that serves locally brewed beers.
Get your passport handy because you’re going to love Toronto. Because so many cultures collide in this Canadian city, the food scene is diverse and filled with delicious treasures. There’s also art to see and plenty of shopping to keep you busy. There’s also a lot of history in Toronto so make time to check out the museums and architecture too. Even just wandering around the city without kids is sure to make the trip memorable.
New Orleans, Louisiana
If you’re lucky, you can book your New Orleans trip during Mardi Gras, where you can take in the parades and shows and join the revelry and celebration that takes over the entire city. But this is also a lovely place to visit year round. Check out the many French-inspired restaurants and bakeries and book a river cruise so you can see the city from a different angle. Of course, you’ll definitely want to check out the shopping and art scene as well.
If you need a mom’s trip, these ideas are sure to please. Check in with your kids, but make sure you focus on yourself and get the break you deserve so you can go home to your family refreshed.
