When is Mother's Day 2024?

When it's time to let the moms and maternal figures in your life know how much they’re appreciated, treat them (and yourself!) to a visit to Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach for a wide array of fun activities, scrumptious meals, and quality time to appreciate each other.

Here are some recommendations for things to do for Mother’s Day, though most of the fun stuff below can be done any time of the year:

Great trips run on happy stomachs and no matter if you’re looking for light or hearty, healthy or indulgent, or unique or comforting, you’ll find crave-able cuisine everywhere you go in in the area, from breakfast to late supper and everything in between.

Outside Adventures

Nothing beats beach time, of course, no matter if you’re lazing in the sun, swimming, or collecting shells and fossilized shark teeth. Bonus: there are five great restaurants within walking distance of Englewood Beach, our main sand-and-surf spot.

If mom or anyone else in the party is a pickleball player, they’ll be very happy with the options in the area, from our crown jewel, the Pickleplex® of Punta Gorda, to easy drop-in courts from one end of our area to the other. Or, if someone wants to golf, they’ll find over 15 beautiful courses to enjoy.

Several spots in the area host special Mother's Day brunches and teas:

Stretto at Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor is offering their food stations with everything from fresh seafood, salads, charcuterie, omelets, pastries, and more. The Mother's Day Brunch at 88 Keys at The Wyvern Hotel features a carving station and lots of accompaniments, as well as a complimentary Mimosa for mom.

It's also great to just enjoy a drink and a nice conversation in a beautiful setting. You'll find the perfect atmosphere for a wind-down at unWined Wine & Beer Bar, Punta Gorda Chocolate & Wine, Downtown Kava, or Perch 360 atop the Wyvern Hotel.


Theater & Entertainment

People dancing to live music at SandBar Tiki & Grill in Englewood, FloridaNothing beats the energy of a live stage performance! Treat mom to live music at many of our restaurants.

For something a bit more special, take mom to Visani Italian Steakhouse and Comedy Theater for their special Mother's Day with Maryellen Hooper event, with two shows on Sunday, May 12, 2024.

Whatever you do for those special people on this special day, we're sure you'll all have a great time in Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach!
