Happy Mother’s Day

This weekend we get to celebrate the mothers in our lives, and it’s such a special day to make these ladies feel appreciated! Not only is it a special day, but we are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world to enhance the holiday.

We have a few suggestions if you’re still looking for ways to celebrate.

Several Durango restaurants will offer a Mother’s Day brunch. Chimayo Durango, The Doubletree Hotel, and Mahogany Grille are among some of the local options. Perhaps a special lunch is just what would show appreciation and enjoy time together.

Or, maybe you want to pick food up from a restaurant and take it on a hike or picnic. We live in a perfect place to enjoy a day hike or even just a picnic along the Animas River. If you have little kids, a local park may be the right location. Jean Pierre Bakery, Café and Wine Bar or Bread Bakery are easy solutions with decadent food. Enjoy pastries, croissants, or sandwiches without the hassle of making them. These are local favorites, and the mom in your life is sure to love this food as well.

The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad will also be offering a special Mother’s Day train ride to Silverton. Mothers will receive a fresh flower, chocolate treat, and if you eat at the Grand Imperial Restaurant for lunch, a glass of champagne and appetizer will be included with the order. The return trip to Silverton will also feature a musician on board the train. If you’ve never take a ride on our train, now is the time to enjoy the beautiful views and downtown Silverton.

Perhaps you want a simpler celebration. We are big believers that sometimes home is the most enjoyable place to be. As of Monday, the weather forecast shows a high of 69 degrees, and partly cloudy skies. This is perfect weather to enjoy time at home as a family. Cooking or barbequing for mom allows her to enjoy a meal without the cooking and cleaning!

However you decide to celebrate the day, we hope you enjoy Durango and the surrounding area, and make the moms in your life special. Happy Mother’s Day from The Durango Team!
