WHERE TO CELEBRATE MOTHER’S DAY IN MIAMI.

Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 12, 2019! From a posh garden brunch or a Champagne cruise, to an active day of kayaking on the water or perusing contemporary art, there is plenty to do in Miami to celebrate Mother’s Day.

BROADWAY MUSICAL IN DOWNTOWN MIAMI

Take mom to see one of the best Broadway musicals of all time. Disney’s The Lion King will be showing at the Adrienne Arsht Center twice on Mother’s Day (1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.). Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, The Lion King brings together one of the most imaginative creative teams on Broadway. Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor brings to life a story filled with hope and adventure set against an amazing backdrop of stunning visuals. Ticket prices vary.

GARDEN BRUNCH AT FAIRCHILD TROPICAL BOTANIC GARDEN

There’s nothing more elegant than a decadent brunch in a tropical garden at a beautifully set table. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables is hosting a special Mother’s Day spring buffet brunch featuring omelets, seafood and carving stations, seasonal salads and decadent desserts, all from Le Basque Catering. Brunch tickets (prices TBD) includes admission to the gardens for the day.

CHAMPAGNE BAY CRUISE AT DEERING ESTATE

Miami’s scenic and historic Deering Estate knows exactly what mom wants: bubbly and water views. A popular choice for families who want to roll out the red carpet for their leading ladies, the Mother’s Day Champagne Bay Cruise is the way to go. Plan for either of two departure times, 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Feel free to bring your own picnic brunch to enjoy under the property’s Royal Palms, or pre-order a catered brunch. Either way, mom is sure to be thrilled. Champagne bay cruise tickets start at $45 per person.

ART EXHIBIT AT PÉREZ ART MUSEUM MIAMI

Take mom to see her favorite artists and spend the day perusing the contemporary art exhibits at the waterfront Pérez Art Museum Miami in Downtown. Organized by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander, check out Argentinian artist Liliana Porter’s most ambitious project to date: El hombre con el hacha y otras situaciones breves – Venecia 2017. Admission is $16 for adults and $13 for seniors and students.

KAYAK ADVENTURE IN KEY BISCAYNE

Why not enjoy Miami’s drop-dead gorgeous natural surroundings with mom and hit the water for a day of fun in the sun. Head to the Crandon Park Nature Center on Key Biscayne for a sea kayak and snorkel excursion with Miami EcoAdventures. You’ll explore the shallow waters surrounding Bear Cut Preserve and a 2,000-year-old fossil reef. Spot colorful fish and maybe even a manatee or two. Tickets start at $60 per person.

MAKE IT A MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH TO REMEMBER

With so many excellent restaurants in Miami to choose from, brunching has become an art form in Miami. For equal parts entertainment and delicious eats, head to Jaya, The Setai’s modern Asian restaurant for their famed jazz brunch. Chef Mathias Gervais’ menu features Pan-Asian cuisine with the bountiful flavors of ginger, cinnamon, chilies, coconut milk and tamarind. In South Beach’s “SoFi” neighborhood, book a table on the garden terrace at Myles Chefetz’ Prime Fish and enjoy an impressive raw bar complete with jumbo shrimp and Maine lobster. Or head to Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach for an Italian buffet feast you won’t be able to forget.
