Mother's Day is this Sunday, May 11th and we know you want to make it special. Whether your mom is always searching for new experiences or deserves a break from the chaos, Huntington Beach is ready to show her that she is number one!

For the active mother who wants to get moving with her kids, check out the Salty Grom "Mom and Me Surf" event. Do something out of the ordinary whether or not anyone in the family has surfed before. Dad can watch from the sidelines as mom and the children suit up and hit the waves with an instructor. For $75, breakfast and equipment is included. Meet at Bolsa Chica State Beach at 8:30 on Mother's Day morning to join the fun! If you're looking to enjoy the water without the waves, check out Rocky McKinnon's stand up paddleboard lessons. SUP is ideal for all ages and is much easier than it looks! Schedule your lesson today at Huntington Harbour with Rocky by calling 714-377-6101.





If mom needs to unwind this Sunday, we know just where to look. Start with a brunch at Sandy's Beach Grill located next to the Huntington Beach Pier with a spectacular ocean view. She can help herself to a full brunch menu including a variety of omelets, eggs benedict, and the mouthwatering bread pudding style French Toast. Don't forget to throw in a few breakfast sides that even the pickiest eaters in the family will enjoy. After brunch, she can head down Main Street to Cloudmover Day Spa for some well-earned pampering at the OC Hotlist #1 voted spa. Treat mom to a choice of almost 50 different massages, organic airbrush tan, lash extensions, infrared sauna, and more! She'll go crazy over their body wraps, facials, and skincare products. Nothing says "we love you mom" like the gift of relaxation.





Get creative with mom at the Art Lounge off Gothard Street where you can make a special collage vase or painted purse/apron this Saturday. Check out their various classes on their website as well as a packed event schedule. If you can't decide on one class, shop the array of papers, paints, embellishments, and other products that make Art Lounge a crafters paradise. Continue your creative experience by heading up to Sunset Beach for their 47th Annual Sunset Beach Art Festival this weekend. It features 150 vendors showcasing and selling handmade jewelry, clothing, ceramics, furniture, and other gifts. You can also find paintings, photography, sculpture, and other works being sold by local artists. With a kid zone, food court, live music, and raffles, the Sunset Beach Art Festival runs from 9am until 6pm.
