Sunday, May 14, is the day to celebrate, honor and treat the moms in your life. We have several wonderful options perfect for your mom (or wife, aunt, grandmother, best friend, etc.), resulting in a memorable day. Here are three standouts to enjoy.

A Day in History

Several churches featuring extraordinary architecture are on the Heritage Homes Tour.

I look forward to the Heritage Homes Tour in New Bern every year. In honor of the New Bern Historical Society’s 100th Anniversary, the tour takes it to the next level on May 12 and 13. Twenty homes and churches take center stage, and you can enjoy them at your own pace on this self-guided tour. The tour covers homes in the Downtown and Riverside Historic Districts, showcasing amazing architecture of our town’s rich history. For advance tickets and a map of the stops, click here.

A Day to Remember

If you have ever seen Frank Capra’s movie, Arsenic and Old Lace, you surely had a fair share of laughs. Bring your mom out for a hilarious take on the classic. Without giving too much away, a longtime bachelor finally decides to marry, then he discovers on his wedding day that his aunts are murderers. Chaos ensues as you can imagine. Performances are being held at the North Carolina History Theater, May 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m., and May 14 at 2 p.m. Get your tickets here.

A Day to Relax

If you are wanting a truly exceptional way to make it all about her, how about a special day on her time? Rinnova Spa and Wellness Center, located at the New Bern Aesthetic Center in West New Bern, offers an extensive menu of services, each with the goal of ultimate pampering. With a spa gift certificate, she can choose exactly what she wants. Click for details here.

Whether you decide to celebrate with your mom in one of these three ways, treat her to brunch or simply take a long walk along the riverfront, she will appreciate the thought!
