Mother’s Day is the perfect time to honor one of the most important people in your life. Moms comfort us when we’re hurt, feed us when we’re hungry and advise us when we need it – and sometimes when we don’t. Providing mom with a great gift is an ideal way to both repay her for her sacrifices and thank her for her love. Plus, if you outdo your siblings in the Mother’s Day gift-giving you’ll get to be mom’s favorite kid for the year.

A surefire way to thrill mom and get the figurative Best Kid trophy is with a getaway to Southern California’s favorite island resort destination. Catalina Island offers a range of activities for a multi-generation vacation, including hiking, shopping and tours as well as ziplining, parasailing and kayaking for those more adventurous moms. One of the best ways to treat mom on Mother’s Day is to cook for her.
