1.) Celebrate Mother’s Day! Take your mom out for a delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner in the beautiful Paris ballroom of Jackson 20 (located in Alexandria, Virginia). Treat her to a relaxing afternoon at the Tranquility Day Spa in Haymarket, Virginia. Bring her to the Annual Antique Rose Festival in Lynchburg, Virginia.

2.) Ride through Shenandoah Valley on a horse from Jordan Hollow Stables in Stanley, Virginia! Choose from nine different horses and spend some time getting to know your four-legged, long-maned friend. Learn tacking and some other tricks before heading onto the trails for open-riding. Take a guided tour and enjoy the scenery, or if you’re a more confident rider, got it alone (or with friends or family). Happy trails to you!
