Celebrate All Things Mom in Downtown Napa

A trip to Napa says a lot of things to mom, “You are the best mom ever,” being one of them. Shower her with thanks with a brunch, wine tasting and spa treatment. You could also opt for a choose-your-own-adventure scavenger hunt on First Street Napa or an elegant afternoon tea at Ackerman’s. Of course, she’ll say the best gift is you and she’ll be right, but you should still plan something special.

Break Away for Brunch

There’s nothing quite like a Napa brunch and there are a lot of places you can choose from for mom, including favorites like Oenotri, Napa Valley Bistro and Angèle. Sky & Vine has a special menu catering to both savory and sweet cravings, as well as bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, all with spectacular views of Napa. You can even have a taste of tea at the Ackerman Heritage House.

Choose the spot that feels most at home for you by visiting our Events page.

Spa Away the Day

Pamper her right at any of our luxurious spas. Spa Terra, in particular, is a unique experience like no other. Built into the hillside directly behind The Meritage Resort, it’s located entirely underground in a 22,000 square foot Estate Wine Cave. In the hushed serenity of the cave, they offer a relaxation lounge, ten treatment rooms, signature couples rooms and ladies and gentlemen’s private lounges with whirlpools, steam grottos and soothing water walls. See their Mother’s Day offers here including special facials and massages for moms and moms-to-be.

Wine Tasting Napa Style

It wouldn’t be a true Napa getaway without a visit to one of our more than 40 wineries. This guide will help with your decision. May we suggest Mayacamas Vineyards for an elevated experience with their current and library vintage wines and local cheese pairings. Be Bubbly is another fun option as they offer several champagne selections as well.­­

Choose Your Own Adventure Scavenger Hunt

Let mom choose her way at First Street Napa on Friday & Saturday, May 7 & 8 where she can shop, dine, taste, explore and celebrate. Throughout our “Choose Your Own Adventure: Mom Edition” Stroll, First Street Napa businesses will have special offerings, promotions and a scavenger hunt just for you and mom.

Pick up a scavenger hunt card at any retail location, and begin your quest. Make your way through First Street Napa and explore the fun tasks set out for you, including picking up flowers for mom, taking a selfie at the “Love” wall, and identifying a few special landmarks on the property. Once complete, return the card to the Napa Valley Welcome Center – before 7pm on either day – and you’ll be entered to win one of two prize packages to be announced on Mother’s Day. Prize packages are made up of gifts and promotions from businesses, and include a Pamper Package and a Shopping Spree Package – both perfect for mom.

Enjoy a Relaxing Stay

Treat mom to a Napa getaway with a stay at any of our lodging properties offering Mother’s Day Specials. You might consider a luxurious bed and breakfast like The Inn on First or indulge in a full resort experience at The Meritage Resort and Spa. The Napa River Inn is especially charming and conveniently located right in the heart of Downtown Napa, while the Embassy Suites by Hilton Napa Valley and The Westin Verasa Napa will also be sure to treat Mom right.

Mom will adore her Napa vacay, but of course, you’re welcome to enjoy it too. Book your stay today!
