Roses are red, violets are blue, but there’s no mom in the world as awesome as you! A crayon-scrawled child’s Mother’s Day card is adorable, but let’s get real. Mom doesn’t just want that anymore. Sorry dads and grown-up kids! That’s why Mother’s Day in Las Vegas is what you’ve got to give her if you want to make her special day the specialist ever! Las Vegas has what mom wants, from Mother’s Day brunches and fabulous shows to luxurious spas and spring gardens. Cocktails by the pool; check. A private chocolate tasting tour, heck yea. Pampering at a gorgeous resort spa, mmmm hmmm. Unearthing can’t-live-without treasures at the many unbelievable shopping destinations in Las Vegas, jackpot! World-class shows you can’t see anyplace else, yep. Or maybe a spin on the High Roller observation wheel or an open-top sightseeing tour of our little town on an English double-decker bus? For sure! Whatever mom wants, she should get on Mother’s Day in Las Vegas or any other time of the year, for that matter!
Mother’s Day in Las Vegas comes during a spectacular time of the year here. Celebrated on the second Sunday in May, it lands on May 8th in 2022. The tradition of Mother’s Day brunch is solidly observed in Las Vegas, and the outdoors is a great place to be this time of the year here! One of our all-time favorites for fashionable patio dining is Mon Ami Gabi, a charming classical- French bistro at the Paris Hotel with a killer view of the Fountains of Bellagio. And their Mom’s Day brunch is simply excellent. Eggs Benny, and blueberry French toast? Oui s’il te plaît. Whilst there, don’t miss the chance to go up to the Eiffel Tower Viewing Deck. Downtown Las Vegas’ Park on Fremont is another excellent pick for Mom’s Day brunching. It’s a quaint restaurant with outdoor dining in a beautiful backyard garden. You won’t have trouble finding something mouth-watering on this menu, but don’t even think about not treating mom and yourself to one of their delectable, hand-made mules or Bloody Marys! Is mom a bit of a carnivore? If so, you can’t top the Mother’s Day South American Rodizio at Pampas Las Vegas. Served all day, she’ll have a front-row seat for an endless parade of barbecued meats, carved table-side by skewer-wielding gauchos.
Our guide to an amazing Mother’s Day in Las Vegas would not be complete without mentioning some of the amazing places of true beauty around town. Do not miss (we repeat) do not miss the wonderful Flower Gardens at the Bellagio. This is a must-do for Mom’s Day. Trust us. Another great idea is the Flamingo Hotel’s lush Wildlife Habitat, populated with exotic birds, fish, and turtles. These magical places are free of charge to enjoy. Does mom like to live life on the wild side? Then take her to Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden, an enchanting world of Bottlenose Dolphins, White Tigers, White Lions, and Leopards, right in the backyard of the Mirage Hotel.
Every trip to Las Vegas should include taking in at least one of the magnificent shows Las Vegas is known all over the world for. We didn’t get the “Entertainment Capital of the World” moniker from 99-cent shrimp cocktails, after all. Is mom an Elvis fan? Then you MUST take her to see our friend Pete Vallee “aka Big Elvis” at Harrah’s. He performs his top-rated free afternoon show on Fridays and Saturdays at 2, 3, and 4 pm. Get there early; it ALWAYS fills up. Another good bet for fun and spectacle is The Australian Bee Gees, a tribute show to the wildly popular band of the ’70s made up of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. It performs at 8 pm at Excalibur. And if mom likes a good laugh, there’s always a hell-ton of them to be had at the L.A. Comedy Club at the STRAT! The shows are at 8 pm and 10 pm nightly. Heck, while your there, why not treat mom to drinks with a view at the 108 Drinks lounge?
Wherever your Mother’s Day adventures lead you, we sincerely hope that you, and especially your mom, have a truly amazing time on her special day in Las Vegas!
