With Mother’s Day coming up on May 9th, make sure your plans are set to celebrate your mom! Las Vegas is the perfect place to show your mom your love and appreciation, from treating her to a nice dinner to bonding while taking a class. Show her you appreciate all the hard work she’s done by planning an incredible day with these things to do with mom on Mother’s Day in Las Vegas.
Mother’s Day means mom does not have to cook. Downtown Las Vegas is a great place to find food mom will enjoy. If you are looking for something a little fancier for a night out, make a reservation at Barry’s Downtown Prime at Circa Las Vegas, or check out Andiamo Steakhouse at the D. Both offer incredible menus (both food and wine) and great ambiance that will really let you treat your mom to a special night. For something a little more casual, explore the options at 8 East for some Asian flair or indulge in a burger at Victory Burger overlooking the Circa Sports sportsbook – because we know sports aren’t just reserved for dad!
With things slowly starting to open back up, now is the perfect time to take mom out to show. Many Las Vegas shows are now open with limited seating due to COVID-19 restrictions, so be sure to check each show to see their individual guidelines. Groups like The Jabbawockeez, All Motown, Piff the Magic Dragon, Blue Man Group, and David Copperfield are all performing on Mother’s Day.
Your mom has gone through years of raising you and building a family, and for that, she deserves a toast. Luckily, Las Vegas has a number of bars to raise a glass and say thank you for all the years of motherhood. If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate, give a toast to mom at OneBar, where they have amazing drinks and dancing bartenders. For something a little more elegant, show mom how much you appreciate her at Legacy Club at Circa. On the 60th floor with panoramic views of Las Vegas, it will be a night she will not forget.
Before treating mom to a meal, give her an experience she will never forget. The Fremont Street Experience is a thrilling activity, whether you’re walking through or flying over. Experience Fremont Street from a whole new angle when you take a ride on the Slotzilla zipline. Or, if you prefer walking, don’t forget to look up every hour starting at 6pm for the Viva Vision Light Show. Fremont Street has one of the largest video screens in the world at 1,375ft long and 90ft wide where they display the light show nightly. Along with every light show they feature music from famous artists like The Chain Smokers, Imagine Dragons, Shakira, and many more. The Downtown sights don’t just stop there, though, so be sure to walk around and enjoy things like street performers, the World’s Largest Keno Board, and more.
Taking pictures with mom is a must on Mother’s Day. Take mom back in time at the Neon Museum where you can see vintage Las Vegas signs. They have signs all the way back from the Stardust casino, to the guitar sign from the Hard Rock Hotel that recently closed. Tickets are limited due to COVID-19 social distancing. Another museum worth visiting is Madame Tussauds wax museum at the Venetian. Snap a selfie with your favorite celebrity and fool all your friends with their life-size wax sculptures.
It’s time for mom to learn something new! There are many Las Vegas workshops and classes to choose from, but we think food and wine classes can be fun ones to do with mom. Las Vegas is home to many restaurants and talented chefs and luckily, these talented chefs want to share their skills with everyone. Sur La Table, located in Summerlin, has nightly cooking classes and currently has 4 in-store cooking classes on Mother’s Day. They teach you how to cook a variety of things like Chinese food, the perfect chicken dinner, and even sweet treats like macaroons. If mom is a wine lover, check out Grape Expectations where they have classes that teach you how to make your own wine. With COVID-19 their classes are limited, so be sure to check their website for current upcoming classes!
Want to involve your children in celebrating Mother’s Day in Las Vegas? A simple but great way to treat mom is to have a picnic at a local park where the kids can run around and have fun. If you are looking for more of an experience, check out Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat, at the Mirage. Not only do they have dolphins that you can touch and feed, but they also have tigers, and if you get lucky you might even be able to see a tiger cub! Another family-friendly experience is the High Roller Observation Wheel at the Linq Promenade. Here you can experience Las Vegas from 550 feet high with breathtaking 360-degree views.
With no better place to celebrate mom than in Las Vegas, make sure to double-check all COVID restrictions wherever you are going. Some places still require reservations and/or call-aheads. No matter how you decide to celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day in Las Vegas, she is sure to have a great time! Book a room at Golden Gate Hotel to be in the perfect central location and treat your mom to the best Vegas trip ever.
