Coronado & 2016 Mother's Day: The Perfect Mix

Posted 8 years, 1 month ago

From running a house, to working, to taking care of the kids, a lot of moms don’t take time for themselves. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, each mom deserves a weekend to be pampered. Coronado is the perfect Mother’s Day getaway with water adventures, walking tours, and relaxing spa packages. There is sure to be something for every mother.

Coronado’s Historic Home Tour

If your mother loves cute architectural homes, then the annual historic homes’ tour by the Coronado Historical Association is the perfect event. This event is great if you are looking for a way to celebrate but don’t want to take up the entire day. Since the tour runs from 11am to 4pm, it can fit with a Mother’s Day breakfast or dinner.

Each year the association tours six homes that showcase design elements and architectural feats based on a theme. This year’s theme is Homes By The Sea, and each house will reflect the many different styles of Coronado living. Delight your mother by spending a day discovering charming households. 

Adventures in the Water

Being surrounded by water has its perks. There are multiple avenues to spend a day on the water, even if it’s just walking along the beach with your toes in the sea. Coronado has everything for adventurers and relaxers alike.

Gondola Ride Through the Canals

If your Mother wants a relaxing day on the water, a gondola ride is just the key. Touring through the Coronado canals, you can sit back and enjoy the sights of the city.

Stand Up Paddleboard 

For those who want a little more work with their introduction to the bay, a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) is the way to go. Great for young and old, the only prerequisite is having good balance. From paddle boarding in the bay to checking out the beach, it’s a way to get the blood pumping while seeing the city.

  • SUP Coronado 


For the really adventurous moms, there’s no better way to get in the water than surfing. Spending the afternoon gliding through the ocean, catching waves will surely be a Mother’s Day to remember. Rent a wetsuit and board for those that know how to surf, or sign up for basic lessons to learn the ropes.

Spa Day

Spending the weekend in Coronado will give ample opportunities to lie on the beach and feel the sun after getting a relaxing facial at a spa. Coronado spas offer everything from facials to couple’s massages to foot reflexology.

One of the standard gifts for Mother’s Day, spa days, is a way for moms to relax, get pampered, and feel rejuvenated. Here are just 3 of the many spas available for mothers:
