There’s a reason why moms love movies like Bad Moms, Fun Mom Dinner, and the latest Netflix chick flick release, Wine Country – and it’s not just the belly laughs caused by the funny leading ladies.
It’s because amidst all of the diaper changes, carpools, homework hassles, and menial tasks of motherhood, moms just want a moment, a night, or even a whole weekend off.
Adult conversation with friends. A glass of wine sipped slowly. An excuse to ditch the leggings and top knots and dress up a little. A dinner enjoyed without having to shush kids, or cut up food into tiny little pieces. Perhaps even a full night’s sleep – without interruption.
A moms’ weekend may sound like an unattainable fantasy, but it’s easier to plan than you think. Make your dream a reality with this simple staycation getaway to Richmond, BC with your best girls.
Where To Stay
Close to home, the River Rock Casino Resort offers all that you need to make your staycation extra special – without the added burden of ferries or flights. With an Absolute Spa on site, as well as a variety of dining options, a Show Theatre featuring live concerts and shows, and a casino, you can park, play, and stay all in one place.
The resort offers luxury suites of various sizes, featuring king-size beds (because you’re never too old for a sleepover), spacious bathrooms (perfect for shared counter space), free wifi (so you can stream your favourite movies on Netflix), and more.
Where To Eat
From a buffet featuring international dishes, to a classy restaurant featuring delicious Italian cuisine, there are many dining options available at the River Rock Casino Resort. For the diehard foodies, venture beyond the resort for a real taste of Richmond. Try the self-guided Dumpling Trail food tour, where you can sample the city’s best Asian dumplings at your choice of over 20 restaurants in the area.
What To Do
Start with a spa day with the girls and get pampered with a facial, massage, or side-by-side pedis. Head to Curve Lounge for lunch and cocktails on the patio and soak up the sun while laughing it up with your gal pals. Then, stroll over to the Richmond Night Market, where you can sample dumplings, ramen, and Rainbow Toast, take in live shows, play games, and sip on bubble tea.
Head to Richmond and live out your mom movie fantasies with a wild night out, or enjoy a quiet night in, watching your favourite flick with wine, robes, and your closest friends.
