Mother's Day in Charlotte

By

Charlotte has many ways to celebrate Mother's Day whether it's taking mom out for a special brunch, lunch or dinner or giving her a little rest and relaxation at an area day spa. There are also plenty of activities for the entire family.

Taking Mom Out to Eat

New South Kitchen & Bar
Tucked away in a crevice of the massive Arboretum Shopping Center in South Charlotte is New South Kitchen & Bar which serves up a tasty homestyle buffet brunch every Sunday.
