Spa, Shopping, and More

New Orleans has plenty of day spas; treat mom to some pampering with a facial or massage. Some spas even offer special package deals. Favorite places to unwind include NOLA Organic Spa and Woodhouse Day Spa, but hotels often have great spas as well, including the newly-opened spa at Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans.

Treat Mom to a day spent shopping around the city. Magazine Street, Royal Street, Canal Place, Bayou Road, and the Riverwalk are great spots to snag something special. From clothing and jewelry to art and candles, you'll find a great gift.

Maybe all mom wants is a day in the park. Grab a blanket and head to City Park, Audubon Park, or one of these picnic spots for the perfect Mother’s Day feast. After all, it is crawfish season, and this Mother’s Day is the perfect time to chow down. Find our top spots for boiled seafood here
