Mother-Son Trip Ideas

By Mer Norwood

Mother-son trips should be cherished. They may not happen often, but when they do, the memories are everlasting. Make sure to choose your mother-son trip carefully but have fun at the same time! Here’s our round up of mother-son trip ideas.  


Find sunshine and entertainment in San Diego, California 

San Diego is filled with sunshine and entertainment. It’s the perfect place for a beachy getaway for kayaking in La Jolla, and you won’t get bored with your son as there are plenty of amusement spots to visit. A visit to Legoland or San Diego Zoo is a must-do, and even a day trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, California would just add to the memories of the trip filled with imagination, animals, and characters of all types.  

Book your stay at Best Western Inn & Suites San Diego – Zoo / SeaWorld Area and Hotel Lulu, BW Premier Collection.   


Road trip to the National Parks in Utah 

For adventure seeking mother and son duos, a road trip to Utah is the perfect escape. Utah has the ‘big five’ National Parks, but even just visiting one or two is enough to make memories. Start at Zion National Park and hike up the precarious Angels Landing, then make your way to the Arches National Park to see the iconic arches that Utah is famous for. 

Book your stay at Best Western Plus Zion Canyon Inn & Suites and Best Western Plus Canyonlands Inn.   


Catch a baseball game in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

Catch a baseball game watching the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Fewer stadiums are as beautiful as PNC Park, which sits along the Allegheny River with sweeping views of the Downtown Pittsburgh. Theme nights include Bucco Luau Weekend, Yinzerpalooza Weekend, and Scout Day.

Bicycle the Wild Rivers Scenic Bikeways in Oregon 

Another awesome mother-son experience would be bicycling the Oregon Coast. The Wild Rivers Scenic Bikeways include scenic stops at Cape Blanco State Park, which is at Oregon’s westernmost tip, and features an old lighthouse. Also pay a visit to Port Orford Heads State Park which includes Port Orford Lifeboat Station.

Spice up your life at Avery Island TABASCO® Tour in Louisiana 

For spicier vibes on the mother-son vacation, consider the Avery Island TABASCO® Tour located on Avery Island, Louisiana. TABASCO® lovers will have a blast, from the TABASCO® flavored ice cream in the general store, to the mini TABASCO® bottle they give you in the beginning of the museum tour, to the TABASCO® Restaurant 1868.
