5 New Ideas For Moms' Day/Night Out! - Stamford Moms

Let’s face it… time with mom friends is essential! While playdates are fun, getting together sans kids is not only more relaxing, but allows for real catching up without interruptions! Dinner and drinks are standard moms’ night out fare. But if you’re looking to change up the routine, we’ve rounded up a few fresh ideas to get on the calendar!

Score some tickets

There’s something about going to a comedy show, concert or other event that makes MNO feel extra special. There are a few big names doing tours nationally, including Harry Styles and Lady Gaga for music and Chelsea Handler for laughs. If you’re looking for something local:

Get tickets to the July 28 or August 4 Alive at Five concert!

Get tickets to the Hey Stamford Food Festival, August 12 – 14 and August 19 – 21!

Enjoy a weekend away

Upgrade your Moms’ Night Out to a whole weekend! If you’re looking for something within driving distance, The Saybrook Point Resort & Marina is at the top of our list! It’s an easy drive (about an hour and a half to a two hour drive depending on traffic). The restaurant (Fresh Salt) is delicious, there’s a heated pool with drink service, beautiful views and a spa all on site!

Another good option within driving distance is the Newport Beach Hotel in Middletown, Rhode Island (an easy ride into Newport)! Across the street from the beach, it’s a fun getaway!

The Mayflower Grace Inn & Spa is another perfect option! It’s in Washington, CT which is about an hour and a half away from Stamford. The spa services are wonderful and the lounge area is a little piece of heaven. You’ll seriously never want to leave… especially if you can snag one of the comfy lounge chairs that overlooks the beautiful grounds. When it comes time for meals, stay at the spa and have your lunch delivered (wine, too) or head to the Inn! You can also head out for a hike or other fun activity!
