Places to Take Mom out in Richmond

Joseph Coupal - Monday, May 06, 2013

If you live in an apartment in Glen Allen, VA, there are an abundance of perfect places to take mom in Richmond for Mother’s Day.  In honor of Mother’s Day, we’ve supplied you with a list of the top venues.

1. Maymont
This Richmond classic has beautiful gardens, a historic mansion tour with an upstairs/downstairs twist, butterflies, a carriage collection, and fluffy bunnies.

2. Afternoon Tea at the Jefferson

The Jefferson is the grand matriarch of all Richmond hotels. Take your own family matriarch here for fancy finger sandwiches, scones, tea, and even a little bubbly. You may reach favorite child status.

3. West End Antiques Mall
53,000 square feet of antiques. The issue with an outing to this West End staple will be getting your mom to leave. Wear comfortable shoes.

4. A Matinee at Hanover Tavern
Not only will mom love the historic, rural setting, you can rest assured that any play put on here will be filled with folksy, non-risqué family fun.

5. The Virginia Museum of Fine Art
Maybe your mother admires classic European paintings. Maybe she’s into pop art. Or maybe she would just really love to have a drink at Best Café on the outdoor terrace. No matter her tastes, there is guaranteed to be something at the VMFA that will your mom happy.

6. Bird-watching with the Richmond Audubon Society
If your mother has a pair of binoculars and a Birds of Virginia field manual she’ll love to go on one of the Richmond Audubon Society’s guided bird-watching tours.

7. Ashland Coffee & Tea
Out of all the nearby music venues, Ashland Coffee & Tea may be the most mom-friendly. The music is dependably great but fairly mellow. Everyone gets to sit down. She can order snacks and warm beverages throughout the show.

8. Segway Tour of Richmond
Bring mom on a ride on a segway around downtown Richmond. If she’s a history buff or a Daniel Day Lewis fan, she’ll love the Lincoln in Richmond tour.

9. Carytown
The best place in Richmond to turn a quick outing with mom into a daylong bonding session. Start with brunch at Can Can. Then shop until your feet hurt. Catch your breath with a matinee at the Byrd. Top it all off with a glass of wine.
