Time To Plan a Mother’s Day Santa Fe Getaway!
Every year your Mom insists that she doesn’t want any big production for Mother’s Day, but you know better. Take the mom in your life on a surprise adventure that includes a getaway to Santa Fe–– a day at the spa, serious shopping or a superb brunch. Here are some ideas for fun ways to treat her (or Mom you could be treating yourself) to something special this Mother’s Day!
See Santa Fe Mom’s Way
If your mom’s an outdoor warrior, plan a Mother’s Day weekend adventure with Outspire Hiking, the brainchild of Karen Dennison, who has a proven record on finding the best spots for panoramic scenery. A biologist-turned-guide, Karin is also an avid fly-fisher and co-authored a book on regional fly-tieing. Sue Mally, co-owner of Santa Fe Walkabouts, took the long way round to get to Santa Fe—she’s a native of Burma—but she’s 100% local now and Walkabouts’ tours offer an insider’s view of the Land of Enchantment. If you just want to sit back and listen, riding along on a Custom Tours by Clarice means you’ll see all the downtown sights while absorbing the local lore when Clarice Coffey herself is at the wheel.

She Would Love A Spa Treatment
Indulge the special woman in your life with spa treatments this Mother’s Day weekend. Absolute Nirvana is a luxurious spa situated in the gardens of the Madeleine Inn, a beautiful 1886 Victorian Queen Anne building–– the spa is just a few blocks from The Plaza. They offer authentic Balinese spa and facial treatments, therapeutic, hot stone, deep tissue and Thai massage, as well as a large selection of relaxing and rejuvenating facials. Absolute Nirvana is locally owned and operated and uses many locally-produced products. Visit santafe.org for more ideas on planning a relaxing and detoxing Mother’s Day getaway.
Surprise Her With A Delicious Brunch
Start Mother’s Day right with a brunch feast. Make reservations at The Compound which is rich in history and regional influences. La Casa Sena, a hidden jewel in the historic plaza will also be offering a delicious Mother’s Day brunch. Anasazi Restaurant will be offering an a la carte Mother’s Day brunch from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. You’re sure to put a smile on Mom’s face with any of these suggestions!
Shop Till You Drop With Mom
Worried about buying her another scarf or sweater that will sit in the back of the closet until you visit? Plan a shopping escape at Malouf on the Plaza. Brands such as MaxMara, Helmut Lang, Fabiana Filippi and Magqaschoni are carried here. Malouf’s is located on the historic Santa Fe plaza.
Santa Fe favorite, Origin's which just recently moved to its new location on Galisteo Street is another great store she would enjoy. The clothing shop specializes in ethnic and bohemian glamour. If studio jewelry, wood, clay, paintings or sculpture is her thing, why not take her to Patina Gallery located on Palace Avenue. Here, she’lll discover the Patina experience which is one of immediate engagement with texture, scale, color and surface.
With these choices and so many others, it’s no wonder why Santa Fe was most recently named Best Destination for Shopaholics by USA Today’s 10Best. Mom will agree.
Whether you are a husband, a well-loved companion of many years, a daughter or son, the mom in your life will appreciate the effort you put into planning a special Santa Fe getaway!
