Celebrate mom by bringing her to the country’s liveliest city. New Orleans is the perfect destination for food, music and the celebration of family. Whether she enjoys a picnic beneath the ancient Live Oaks in City Park or a white-tablecloth brunch at one of the city’s many fine restaurants, a Mothers’ Day in New Orleans is guaranteed to be a memorable one.
Other suggestions for a special day include a trip to the Audubon Zoo Mother's Day concert. Moms of any age are admitted free. There will be great live music and incredible food in the lush surroundings of one of America's top zoos. Local jazz singer extraordinaire Irma Thomas headlines the annual event. The concert is free with Zoo admission.
