Our Mothers and the bond we share with them are special! They are our first contact in the world and after that they hardly leave our side! They teach, provide and protect us from day one so naturally we want to spoil them for that one day or weekend known as Mothers Day! This year with everything going on Mother’s Day might not be on your radar yet but it is never too early to start looking into ideas! Check out these fun and unique ideas for Mothers Day 2020 in Fairfax, VA that are sure to show your mom just how special she is!
What to Do for Mother’s Day 2020
If you want to do something special for your mom, you can take her to the Mother’s Day Music Festival in Fairfax, VA on May 10 this year. R&B legend Tyrese will headline the music festival at the EagleBank Arena, otherwise known as the former Patriot Center. The younger generation may know him as the Tyrese Gibson of the Fast and Furious and Transformers franchises but to us older folks we know him as a successful musician! Before he started acting, Tyrese was known for his music, with R&B classics like “Sweet Lady” and “Why You Gotta Act Like That.” Buy your mom and yourself tickets to the Mother’s Day Music Festival and make it an experience.
Make a Weekend in Fairfax
While in town for the music festival, why not make a weekend of it? Spoil your mom with a shopping spree at Fairfax’s malls, Tysons Galleria, the Shops at Fairfax Square, Mosaic or the Fair Oaks Mall, just to name a few. After shopping take her on a wine journey through the county’s to historic wineries and go on a wine tour or do some wine The two historic wineries are Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton and The Winery at Bull Run in Centreville. Fairfax also has a great nightlife so you can paint the town red during your stay visiting the Irish pubs, sports bars and nightclubs!
A Nice Place for Mom
After a long night of fun at the show, you’ll need a place to rest. Preferably a hotel near the former Patriot Center in Eastern Fairfax, VA. For an upscale stay, you should try the Hyatt House Falls Church/Merrifield hotel. It has spacious rooms and suites designed for a homely stay. Located in the Mosaic district near shopping malls, fine dining and entertainment this hotel offers a fitness center, swimming pool, free Wi-Fi and parking. The Candlewood Suites Washington-Fairfax offers lodgings with the comforts of home, including a furnished kitchen. The kitchen comes with cooking items and you have the option to use their outdoor grills. It is a pet-friendly hotel with a fitness center, Wi-Fi, and free laundry facilities.
Memorable Mother’s Day Dining
Nothing can beat mom’s cooking but it’s fun to try. For Mother’s Day try out a new restaurant in Fairfax like Sarleno’s, a renowned pizza and beer place. Their pizza is grilled from woodfire and they have a selection of over 30 beers on “serve yourself” taps. It’s a trendy restaurant, so book in advance. The Red Hen offers a fine American dining experience and prides itself on sourcing their ingredients locally. Popular dishes include the meringue, arctic char, smoked salmon terrine, and short ribs.
Have a taste of Germany at the Edelweiss Restaurant and check out their lunch and dinner options which include a gluten-free along with vegetarian menu. It’s a family restaurant with authentic bratwurst, weisswurst, sauerbraten, schnitzels, and pretzels, among other treats. The German decor makes it a unique setting and you’ll be served with a wide selection of German beers and wines. If you want a taste of Mexico, then Don Tequila is the place to eat. The restaurant serves meals prepared from scratch like fajitas, the Don Tequila, Ramon Especial, and choripollo. The bar serves Margaritas, mixed drinks, and Tequila.
Have fun and Happy Mothers Day to all the Mamas out there!
