Mother’s Day Travel should be all year-round
We moms today are often faced with chronic exhaustion and overwhelming circumstances because of everything that we’re juggling.
Let’s be clear – we have a lot on our plates.
So what do we need to do? Take care of ourselves and prioritize our self-care.
One of the best forms of self-care, in order to refresh and revive ourselves, is to take a travel break. I like to call it self-care travel or taking a personal retreat.
I not only take retreats often but I plan retreats for other moms who need me-time and transformation.
And these five Mother’s Day travel deals make justifying a personal retreat easy.
Whether you’re looking for a day, overnight, or weekend getaway, here is a list of destinations that are offering wonderful getaway specials just for mom.
Mother’s Day in Hagerstown, Maryland
Getaway for the Day to Hagerstown. Tea Time at the Inn at Boonsboro on May 12th from 1:00-3:00 pm.

Mother’s Day in Mexico
In Puerto Vallarta, MX “mommy and me” can enjoy discounted spa services at the Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta.
Having just returned from Puerto Vallarta for my couples’ retreat I can vouch for the weather being absolutely wonderful and this being a perfect time for a quick weekend retreat in Mexico.
The Hyatt Ziva’s packages range from $90-$170, a perfect range for mom’s travel budget.
