San Diego County is a beautiful and picturesque area of the United States that features breathtaking views, outdoor activities, friendly people, and fun things to do all year round. But if you are thinking of the best place to go for a Mother’s Day home away from home, then we have a few ideas in mind for spending Mother’s Day in San Diego. Vacation Rentals by Kimberly offers pristine and modern homes that are right in the heart of all there is to do in this peaceful and relaxing West Coast haven!

Let’s check out the top things to do in San Diego for this upcoming holiday. After all, you want to plan ahead so you can make sure this vacation is one of the best weekends of the entire year for your mother. She deserves it!

Head to Brunch

Did someone say pancakes? Going to brunch for Mother’s Day is one of the best things to do on this fun-filled Sunday! Luckily for you, there are hundreds of brunch and breakfast joints dotted throughout San Diego County.

One of our top options is Morning Glory, a breakfast spot in San Diego that is popular among tourists and locals alike every single weekend of the year. Make sure you book a table ahead of time so you can get a great spot and sit down, ready to indulge in a few mimosas and breakfast plates that are really going to knock your socks off. If you want to have something sweet, you can’t go wrong with the towering stack of sweet pancakes with maple syrup and powdered sugar, and a few—or more—mimosas or Bloody Marys!

San Diego Brunch San Diego Boardwalk
Another spot that is a must-visit during your Mother’s Day weekend is Tom Ham’s Lighthouse, a high-end seafood restaurant on Harbor Island Drive that features holiday brunches that can’t be beaten! We recommend getting a bottle of the prosecco or Courtage Brut and washing it all down with the made-to-order omelet station, applewood smoked bacon, Eggs Benedict plates, Meyer Lemon pancakes, French toast, local green salads, four-cheese mac and cheese, carved and roasted prime rib, and the raw bar. Yum!

Check Out the Crawfish Festival

In the mood for a fun-filled and exciting afternoon? Well, we have somewhere that is going to tick all of your boxes! The Gator by the Bay-Zydeco, Blues, and Crawfish Festival is an outdoor and music-oriented event located right on Point Loma Peninsula. Held by the Bon Temps Social Club of San Diego, this festival is held all weekend long and tickets start at $65. Talk about a win-win!

Head here to listen to live music on one of the many stages, check out over one hundred live acts, take a nap in the green grass, and bring your kids to the family-friendly events to make this a great day for the entire family. Plus, you can munch on some of the authentic Cajun food as you listen to live folk music!

Walk Around the Flower Fields

The Flower Fields is the best Instagram-worthy pic in the entire San Diego County! Don’t just take our word for it, head to North Coastal in Carlsbad to see why the vibrant fields of bright pink, yellow, and orange flowers nestled among the bright blue skies and palm trees is truly one of the best things to do on Mother’s Day weekend. We recommend heading here on Mother’s Day weekend anytime between 9 am and 6 pm to make the most out of your day. Tickets are only sold online – they sell quickly!
