Grapevine‘s Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center is the perfect place to do just that. Grapevine offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and the Gaylord Texan is a complete oasis overlooking beautiful Lake Grapevine. Since the goal is to give mom a break from her busy routine, let’s stick to these three things to spoil her this Mother’s Day: dine, unwind and splurge.
One of my favorite dining experiences here is the Riverwalk Cantina. Located within the resort’s Riverwalk Atrium, this restaurant serves up mouth-watering Tex-Mex and traditional Mexican cuisine in an open-air setting—replicating the famous San Antonio River Walk. The winding waterway inside the atrium is an impressive view alone, let alone dining by it!
For Mother’s Day brunch, enjoy the high-quality international breakfast featuring fresh baked goods, savory sausages and bacon, hand-cut fruits, decadent yogurt parfaits, fluffy pancakes and made-to-order omelettes cooked at a live omelette station. Top it all off with a glass (or two) of a mimosa. You’ve earned it, mothers!
Just across from the Riverwalk Cantina is the renowned Relâche Spa & Salon, a premiere spa that offers luxurious treatments including the 105-minute Signature Botanical Body Ritual, Dream Catcher Massage and Anti-aging Facial. Each guest receives a complimentary glass of wine upon request and full access to the sweet-scented resting lounges before and after treatments. Relâche also offers hair removal and makeup services.
You know I wouldn’t leave retail therapy out of our mom’s me-time getaway! Whether you’re looking for unique souvenirs to commemorate your visit, dazzling designer jewelry, travel necessities or Western wear – the shopping at the Gaylord Texan has it all! With shops like Amelia’s, Carolyn Pollack Jewelry, Lone Star Sundry and Willow Creek, you’ll find something special to treat yourself with.
Wishing all of the fellow mommas out there a very happy Mother’s Day weekend! Learn more about Grapevine here to plan a full weekend of fun.
