Show Mom Some Love

Why Florida’s Historic Coast is the perfect place to share good times with a special woman in your life for Mother's Day.

March 24, 2021
"I love you, Mom." Mother & child.

This year, more than ever, cherish the time you spend with the ones you love. Start with a good night’s sleep at an iconic hotel in the heart of downtown St. Augustine. Walking distance from all the great attractions and restaurants, the Casa Monica Resort & Spa is both stunning and charming at the same time. From its Moorish architecture to its beautifully appointed rooms, the hotel is a treat for all the senses, whether you’re sipping a cocktail by the elegant bar or relaxing poolside in one of the roomy cabanas. Indulge your Mom with a luxurious massage, rejuvenating facial or body treatment at the Poseidon Spa. So relaxing. But there’s much more to do.

A quick walk across the street to the Lightner Museum is just what Mom would love. Housed in the former Hotel Alcazar, the museum has a grand collection of cut glass and stained glass windows. If she loves art, be sure to visit the newly installed American Impressionism: Treasures from the Daywood Collection. The Café Alcazar is the perfect place to stop for lunch. Located in what was once the indoor pool of the hotel, the Café offers a variety of delightful dishes in a unique setting.

Ready to do some shopping? Of course you are. There are plenty of little galleries and boutiques along King Street as you head to Aviles Street, the oldest street in the Ancient City. As you amble along the brick-lined street, you’ll feel like you’re strolling in Europe, with its quaint little shops and flower-filled balconies. Stop in for an artisan ice cream sandwich from Peace Pie and prepare to be wowed. How do you top that? A scenic cruise along the Matanzas Bay on the Schooner Freedom as the sun sets over the city might just be the perfect ending to a perfect day with Mom.
