For those of us in the UK, Mother’s Day is right around the corner. If you and your Mum are heading to Florida this March, we have a feeling you’ll want to make her feel extra special despite being away from home!
Celebrating an occasion like this in another country won’t be what you’re used to, especially when you don’t know the area well or what resources are available to you. We’re here to make sure this Mother’s Day is one she’ll never forget, but there’s one small thing you’ll have to do before boarding the plane! Americans celebrate Mother’s Day in May, so you’ll need to pack a card in your suitcase – you might struggle to find one in the USA!
Take her for brunch
There are many lovely places to go for brunch in Orlando, but Slate is one of our favourites. Eggs here are made to perfection and the restaurant offers a wide selection of tasty salads.
For the health-conscious, Cold Pressed Raw Kitchen is a must. The menu is completely vegan and you can treat your Mum to fresh juices, acai bowls and everyone’s favourite avocado toast.
