Mother’s Day Activities for Anyone and Everyone ?

Moms come in all shapes and styles and so do the ways they want to celebrate. Here are some of our favorite ideas...

Want to enjoy some alone time? Try these!

Be one with nature

Sometimes all you need is a little peace and quiet. One of the best ways to do that is either head up to the mountains, take a walk or just enjoy lunch in a park. Enjoy the light breeze, the chirping birds and gorgeous greenery. 

Browse available Colorado guidebooks to bring along your next adventure.

Get a massage

Spend the day with rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. Try a DIY at home day or book a massage at a local spa!

Go to the movies

Ever tried going to the movies solo? Get a popcorn and drink, take a deep breath in the cozy reclined seat and enjoy a well-deserved cinematic piece!
