Some moms prefer breakfast in bed and a lazy day, but taking Mom out for Mother’s Day is a time honored tradition in many families. And if you’ve got young children, it’s not as though they’ll be able to do it themselves. So whether it’s your mom or your wife (or both!) we’ve got you covered when it comes to great Mother’s Day spots in New Jersey. Check out this list if you haven’t figured out your plan yet.
Atlantic City Mother’s Day Music Festival—May 13th
Why not take Mom out the night before Mother’s Day and let her rest on Sunday? The Annual Atlantic City Mother’s Day Music Festival is on Saturday, running from 7-10:30, and will feature Maize ft. Frankie Beverly, Gladys Knight, and plenty more. It’s a fun way to spend the evening, and the perfect segue to breakfast in bed the next morning.
Azalea Festival—May 14th
Head on down to the Sayen Park Botanical Garden this year for their annual Azalea Festival—although it’s not just azaleas. The grounds will be covered with rhododendrons, flowering dogwoods, bulbs of all colors, and yes, plenty of azaleas. It’s a great place to stop during your Mother’s Day outing, and Mom is sure to love wandering through the beautiful gardens on her special day.
Alba Vineyard Mother’s Day Festival—May 14th
From noon to 5:00, the Alba Vineyard will be hosting a Mother’s Day Festival that’s perfect for the mom who’s all about her vino. There will be a wine tasting, a cellar tour, and lunch, as well as live music to brighten the day and add to the lively atmosphere. The afternoon timetable is great for letting Mom sleep in and enjoy the morning before taking her out.

There’s so much to do in New Jersey on Mother’s Day, and your mom or wife will be sure to enjoy spending time with her family.

Give her the gift of LASIK eye surgery, and she’ll see it all with perfectly clear vision. Give us a call today to learn more about LASIK for Mother’s Day.
