Where to take mom for 70th birthday?

Jump to last reply

My mom and I try to do a getaway every year. Somehow we always end up in NYC :) Just because we enjoy it so much . She will be 70 in January, and we would like to do something a little... BIGGER . I originally posted this in the Europe thread but open to other suggestions.

My first thought was London, simply because my mom is a total Anglophile. And since we have both been, 3 full days on the ground (plus the two travel days) would be perfect.

But - then again - maybe somewhere new? We are both totally, completely open so I'm looking to see what would be on your short list? We are thinking springtime but aren't set on timing and think a city is best.

We love history, scenery, good food, absorbing local culture. We love walking tours. Don't love most museums (some quirky ones are great, like the tenement museum in NYC but Smithsonian type - not really high on my list). Shopping is not a big thing.

And, it's weird for me to say, my mom is going to be 70. She defies any expectation I ever had of that age! Very active and no health issues, thank God - Mom can HANG. She travels extensively, has been almost everywhere, and is open to any new adventure .

London - Montreal - Madrid ... these are all cities we have discussed in Europe.
US cities - we have both been to New Orleans, NYC, San Francisco. So although those are great trip spots - we don't really want to go back for this occasion.

What would be on your list ?
