Looking for an extra-special way to celebrate Mom this Mother's Day? She may be expecting a card in the mail or maybe a bouquet of flowers, but she'll be even more thrilled if you surprise her with a fun getaway to Perdido Key. If the gorgeous natural beauty of this Florida island isn't enough to stun your family matriarch (even though we're guessing it will be!), there are plenty of activities to pack fun into the weekend. 

Relaxing on the white sand beaches and dipping into the warm Gulf Coast waters is a fabulous way to spend Mother's Day weekend, and when you stay in Perdido Key condos or beach houses, you'll have easy access to the region's stunning seashore. But if you and Mom feel like getting off the beach for a bit, here are some other activities to fill your weekend with fun.
