Our mothers are the heart of our families and definitely deserve to be pampered on their special day. Mother’s Day is a time to show your appreciation and gratitude for all the love and sacrifice that moms have given us over the years. And Santa Barbara, California, is the perfect destination to make this Mother’s Day an unforgettable one for her.

Take a Spa Day

Start the day off by treating mom to a relaxing spa day! Santa Barbara has some of the best spas in the area! She’ll love having a relaxing and soothing day to enjoy. Float Luxury Spa is a unique spa experience that also offers flotation therapy, where you can float in a sensory deprivation tank for ultimate relaxation. Cielo Spa is another favorite, and offers unique treatments such as the Vino Therapy Facial, where you can enjoy a wine-infused facial. Who doesn’t love the sound of that?  Crimson Day Spa offers a variety of services and amenities such as a sauna and hot tub, as well as a ton of luxurious facials to choose from. La Reve Organic Spa and Boutique is a luxurious spa that uses organic and natural products for their treatments. Fun fact:  it’s the first and only Green Certified spa in Santa Barbara.  

Delicious Eats

After a relaxing spa day, treat mom to a special dinner at one of Santa Barbara’s top restaurants. The Belmond el Encanto is a fine choice, and features multiple dining options from classy to casual.  The Bouchon is another favorite, and features fresh local ingredients and a great selection of wines.  Scarlett Begonia is a good choice if mom is a Brunch-lover.  In addition to their lunch and dinner menus (which are awesome), they offer a wide variety of Brunch options. They use sustainable, organic, and high-quality ingredients.

If your mom is an outdoor enthusiast, Santa Barbara has plenty of options to make her happy. Allow her to experience that California sunshine! The Taste of Santa Barbara event is a great way to spend some time outside, and offers delicious food and drinks from local restaurants and wineries. It’s taking place May 15-21 this year.  Plus, you can also take a hike on one of the many trails in the area.  Douglas Family Preserve offers a multitude of trails, some with jaw-dropping views!  The Botanic Garden is another great option, and is an easy 1.3 mile loop trail with varying landscapes and plants. Or if your mom is a beach lover, there is always the option of enjoying some peaceful relaxation on one of the many area beaches.
