You certainly don’t need a reason to celebrate mom. But we’ll give you six ways to show her how special she is during a visit to Savannah for Mother’s Day, which is May 10.
A Mother’s Day Concert is set starting at 3 p.m. on May 10 at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. The concert features NYC concert pianist Jestin Pieper. The cost is $15 per person and mothers can enjoy a free glass of wine. The event benefits a new Museum exhibit on Savannah’s Irish immigrant experience.
Mom deserves to sit back and relax for her special day, and there are few things as relaxing as a riverboat cruise. Savannah River Boat Cruises offers two special cruises, a Mother’s Day Brunch cruise that sails at 1 p.m. on May 10; or take the later Mother’s Day Dinner cruise, which starts at 7 p.m. Both cruises offer a brunch, a beautiful view along the Savannah River and special entertainment. Just for her.
Is your mother a tea connoisseur? Doesn’t Springtime Tea in the Garden at the Davenport House sound lovely? The event is held at 5 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons in May. You’ll learn about tea traditions and experience an early 19th century tea in the gorgeous courtyard, weather permitting. Reservations recommended.
Get in on the inspiring energy at the Savannah Art Walk, set May 9 throughout Savannah’s Historic District. Art Walk is an opportunity to explore about two dozen galleries in the city, while also experiencing its elegant squares and beautiful architecture. Start your day at The Hyatt Hotel welcome reception at 2 p.m. where you can pick up your map, meet sponsoring artists and enjoy complimentary cocktails. After you explore to your heart’s content, meet back at 6 p.m. at The Perry Lane Hotel for more free cocktails and a raffle. This event is held on the second Saturday of each month, September through June.
What mom wants most is time to relax, right? Indulge in a spa day. Savannah Day Spa offers several special Mother’s Day treatments for your day of pampering. Choose the Tranquil Tension Tamer Massage and facial; a champagne and rose body scrub; a massage with a manicure and pedicure, or one of their other stress-relieving packages.
A cookie-cutter hotel just wouldn’t make the weekend feel right. Instead, book a stay in one of Savannah’s historic carriage houses, townhomes or garden apartments in the center of the Historic District. A perfectly appointed vacation rental with all the amenities is just the ticket. Don’t you think?
