I don’t know about your mom, but mine prefers a drive in the backcountry to some stuffy, noisy restaurant for Mother’s Day.

Mom just turned 90 and we did the restaurant for her birthday… well, actually a day before so the family could come from all over on a Sunday. Her birthday was on a Monday, so I took the day off of work and we went for a cruise around San Diego Bay before getting something to eat.

This Sunday, I’ll be driving her up in the mountains somewhere. Maybe it will be Old Highway 80, maybe Crazy Couser, maybe one of the others in Joyrides Around San Diego. It will be up to her.

Whatever you do, make it a great San Diego day trip (or wherever you may be) for mom.


  1. This was such a great idea. We took my mom on a drive Sunday and took the drive to Palomar in your book. We had a fantastic time.
