El Paso Mother’s Day Events: Show Mom You Care

El Paso Mother’s Day events

Mother’s Day is on May 14, which means it’s right around the corner. There are a few ways to show the women in your life that you really care, including a number of El Paso Mother’s Day events. We’ve listed some of our favorites to help you find ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day this year.

According to KISS FM, one of the best things you can do for your mom is to take her to a local spa. This is a Mother’s Day classic, but it doesn’t get old. You can visit Barrangan’s or Massage Envy, two top locations for a massage, haircut, coloring, and more. Having a spa day is one way to help your mother or wife relax on this holiday.

Next, visit one of the many Mother’s Day brunches around town. Some of our favorite locations include Ardovino’s Desert Crossing, Butterfield Trail Golf Club, and Sunland Park. Many of these places are premium buffets that are perfect for having a meal with mom.

Finally, stop by a local garden. This time of year is perfect for a trip to the gardens because many of the roses and tulips are blooming. Check out El Paso’s Rose Garden, a four-acre location that is one of few official rose gardens in the country. Here at Crawford Buick GMC, we can’t wait for this upcoming Mother’s Day.

Our Top Three Things to Do in El Paso

There’s a lot of things to do in El Paso—so much, in fact, that it’s easy to get lost in it all. To simplify things a bit, we’ve put together our top three favorite activities to share with you.

So here it is: the top three things to do in El Paso, Crawford Buick GMC Edition:

  1. One of our favorite places at El Paso is the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site. It spans for more than 860 acres and features large rock basins—“huecos”—that have supplied water to the desert-like region for centuries. Rock climbing, hiking, bird watching, studying nature, and picnicking are just a few of the activities to enjoy!
  2. If you’ve got kids, you’ll definitely want to stop by Bob-O’s Family Fun Center at least once to have an unforgettable family time. There’s bumper boats, go-karts, arcade games, and laser tag—the kids will love it!
  3. The El Paso Plaza Theater is one of the best places to enjoy a concert or theater performance. From the lobby and the patio room to the performance hall and the salon, the Plaza Theater features dazzlingly beautiful construction and a vibrant atmosphere that can make any concert or musical a memorable experience.
