Next on the Agenda: Send Mom to the Spa
Give mom some alone time and book a massage for her at Moonlight Fusion Spa at 5544 E. 2nd St. in Long Beach. Located in a popular shopping area, mom can enjoy the shops after her massage if she likes.
After mom has had some time to herself, get the whole family together to finish the day with a family boat trip outing. Long Beach offers a few options, depending on your family’s interests. Try a gondola cruise through the Naples Canals, rent a luxurious Duffy boat or keep it simple and rent kayaks. Whichever option you choose, the beautiful Long Beach coast won’t disappoint.
Get a Sitter
Complete her special day with a night out in the city. Leave the kids behind and take your wife or mother to one of Long Beach’s renowned restaurants. Recently voted the Most Romantic Restaurant in Long Beach, The Sky Room offers fine dining in a beautiful atmosphere with amazing views overlooking the city. For another lovely dining experience with a view, take her to Parkers Lighthouse. Located in Shoreline Village, you’ll enjoy good seafood and breathtaking views overlooking the coast. If you prefer steak over seafood, head up to the third floor of Parkers Lighthouse and visit the Queensview Steakhouse.
