Bring Your Wife to the Beach for Mother’s Day

Do you ever wonder how she does it all?


Mothers are life’s gems. And although we should express our gratitude daily, we definitely don’t want to miss the chance on Mother’s Day. This year, why not plan something special?


A weekend at Compass Cove Resort and some sun will do the trick. Here’s what you can treat mom to while you’re here.

Brunch Spots

The most remarkable feature of a brilliant brunch? It’s either the selection of food or the fact that you got to sleep in before it.

  • TIDAL CREEK BREWHOUSE: Enjoy this lovely place with mom. Tidal Creek features excellent coffee and a must-try Bloody Mary / Mimosa Flight. Treat her to a Creek Omelette or an A.M. Quesadilla.
  • TUPELO HONEY: The beauty of brunch is that it’s both breakfast and lunch. Have Homemade Fried Pickles (with buttermilk ranch). And follow them with Shrimp & Grits, with wild-caught white Gulf shrimp.

ADVICE: Treat your mom like royalty. Plan activities she likes so she doesn’t have to. A picnic, a hike, a shopping spree … What would she love to do?


A Day At the Spa

Recommendation: Give the gift of tranquility to the woman who keeps it all together. What a restorative way to head into summer.

  • The Mist Spa: Treat mom to a rejuvenating massage. She also can choose from body treatments, facials, and more. Book an appointment as early as possible. The Mist Spa is in high demand by locals and visitors alike.
  • CELESTIAL SPA ON CLOUD 9: What a fantastic experience! The energy in this spa matches its name. Therapists help you feel refreshed with massages, facials, lash lifts, and more.

ADVICE: Give her a card for Mother’s Day, bought or handmade. Pick a message that matches the person who keeps everything glued together!

A Bit of Shopping

Did you know the Grand Strand is a superior shopping destination? This place has outlets, specialty stores, boutiques, and more.

  • THE MARKET COMMON: Shop the storefronts in this center, with bowling, a theater, dining, and more. Stop in at Nacho Hippo for a plate of Bangin Shrimp. You’ll find familiar stores and ones new to you, too.
  • BROADWAY AT THE BEACH: So much shopping and entertainment! It’s always a fun time finding treasures and treats along the way here. There’s a daiquiri and appetizers waiting for you at Fat Tuesday, too.

ADVICE: You could also catch a movie with mom at either location. It’s a good chance to catch up with family time. Or plan a movie night at your resort!

The Joys of the Beach

Myrtle Beach in May is amazing. The sun is warm, but the air is often cool. Spend some time at the beach with mom.

  • PLAN A PICNIC: Pick up a pie the way mom likes it at Extreme Pizza Myrtle Beach. Order her favorite sandwiches from Dagwood’s Deli. Whatever you choose, enjoy the waves in the Myrtle Beach sun.
  • DIVE INTO DOWN TIME: How often does mom get that? Gift her a great beach read, unfurl a blanket, and pop open an umbrella. Don’t forget snacks and sunscreen. Now that’s how to relax.

ADVICE: Be sure the day is about celebrating your mom. Mothers have contributed so much to our lives.

Grownups and kids alike are thrilled to tube around the rapid, flowing water of our 250-foot river of endless fun. It can be enjoyed year round as it is enclosed during the colder months.
