Few people will have as much impact on you as your mother, and Mother's Day is the time to show her just how appreciative you are. Planning a peaceful girls getaway to York County is the perfect way to tell Mom "thank you" for all she's done.

Relax with a spa and tea day 

Being a parent doesn't leave much time for relaxation, but our special Pampering Package will make sure mothers get some much-needed down time.

The deal includes a one-night stay at the Red Lion Bed & Breakfast, a cozy retreat where you can relax on a peaceful garden terrace after breakfast. Spend the day shopping in small-town boutiques and antique shops before enjoying an afternoon tea for two at the Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room.

If that isn't relaxing enough, you'll receive a massage for two to help melt away any remaining stress.

If you're just looking for tea, the Red Brick Bakery & Tea Room will feature special Mother's Day teas Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Mother's Day Weekend. Enjoy a four-course tea, with a theme of stevia. Reservations required.

And for the ultimate experience in tranquility, treat Mom to an afternoon at the Serenity Spa and Salon at Heritage Hills, York's largest full-service spa. From massages to nail care to spa treatments, you'll find exactly what you need to unwind. Special Mother's Day packages are available.

Give the gift of great wine

Consider spending the day with Mom on the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail.

Start with a Mother's Day Brunch at Naylor Wine Cellars, where you'll be treated to oven-roasted ham, homemade quiche and more, plus Signature Naylor Sangria.

Afterward, continue tasting at other nearby stops - Four Springs WineryLogan's View WineryRoyal Rabbit Vineyards and Fiore Winery.

Have family fun in downtown York

Or bring the entire family along for a day of fun in downtown York as you partake in a Mother's Day tradition during the 41st Annual Olde York Street Fair on May 8.

Grab a bite to eat and peruse more than 100 vendors selling handmade arts and crafts while the kids enjoy games, face painting, bounce houses and more entertainment. You'll enjoy wandering around downtown, where you'll find creative public art, historical murals and more to explore.

For some extra fun, visit Sunrise Soap Company, where you'll find small-batch soaps that make a perfect Mother's Day gift.
