So there they were, mom and daughter on a bonding weekend, taking photos. We’re thousands of feet up in New Hampshire’s Bretton Woods tree canopy, crossing a minimal rope footbridge on the zip-lining trail and this bungee-jumping, skydiving mom and daughter from Colorado need a photo to mark the occasion.
Zip-lining is one thing, but being stuck behind mom and daughter as they giggle and snap away is another level of fear. We later marked the occasion with a stiff drink in the nearby Omni Mount Washington Resort’s bar (Zip line: $89, martini: priceless).
Though zip-lining’s a thrilling option for Mom’s Day, she can get high in heels (rather than a harness) at the Top of the Hub, on the Prudential Building’s 52nd floor. They’re serving a four-course Mother’s Day brunch or dinner for $67, per person ($29 for those under 12).
Also, for classy and fun dining, UpStairs on the Square’s three-course brunch and supper ($50, $25 for those under 12). The Langham, Boston’s lovely airy Cafe Fleuri offers two choices: full chocolate madness at the Saturday chocolate bar featuring over 85 chocolate desserts ($38, $25 under 12) or a lavish Sunday brunch ($84, $40 under 12), which kicks off with a mimosa.
