Momcations — Yes, It’s A Thing And You Deserve One

Celebrate being a mom by saying yes to self-care

Let’s face it: Being a mom is hard work. On any given day, you’re a professional multitasker, carpool cabbie, home chef, laundry manager, storybook reader, chore juggler and problem-solver. You give so much of yourself to the people you love, and you deserve to be celebrated.

So here’s to all the moms out there. The biological moms, stepmoms, single moms, grandmoms, should-be moms and soon-to-be-moms. You’re all special, and we think you’ve earned a time out.

Take a break with Hilton Grand Vacations and make your Mother’s Day getaway a momcation to remember.

Say Yes To Momcation Mode

Peace, quiet and the freedom to do just about anything you want on vacation — that’s momcation mode. It’s your chance to say goodbye to stress and hello to some much-needed “me” time.

  • Commit. First, say yes to self-care and give yourself permission to press pause for a while.
  • Decide where you’ll go. Pick a personal favorite or go somewhere you've never been.
  • Decide when you’ll go. Sneak a peek at the school calendar and your work schedule to see when you can get away with ease.
  • Make it all about you. You can have the time of your life doing nothing at all or plan the bucket-list activities you’ve been dreaming about for years.
  • Invite a friend or fly solo. Again, it’s all about you. Enjoy your alone time or bring along a bestie (or two).

Let Inspiration Guide Your Getaway

When traveling with your family, the itinerary and activities often center around what make the kids happy — rather than what you’d like to do. But momcations make you the center of the travel story.

Here are a few getaway ideas and Hilton Grand Vacations destinations to help spark your sense of wander.

Take Yourself Shopping

Browse boutiques, stroll vintage shops, score big at outlet malls and hunt for home décor.

Unwind With Wellness

Find Yourself In Nature
