  • 2010: Best Mother's Day Date

Description

Your mom has been cleaning up after you since the day you were born. On the one day of the year that you are mandated to appreciate her, show her some real beauty at Nemours Mansion & Gardens. Let her see the French neoclassical mansion Alfred I. duPont built for his second wife, Alicia, in 1907. Take her for a stroll through the gardens, where the Long Walk that extends from the mansion to the reflecting pool is graced with Japanese cryptomeria. Then, after you’ve taken your deserving, hard-working, brilliant mom to a fabulously indulgent dinner, do her laundry.
